The most recent addition to the Juvéderm family of injectable dermal fillers is Juvéderm Volbella XC, which is designed to add subtle amounts of volume to the lips while smoothing vertical lip lines. Volbella can be injected into either the upper lip, lower lip, or both for a natural-looking increase. Volbella is a great option for patients who have naturally thin lips or who have lost volume in their lips from aging. Using a soft, smooth gel, Volbella improves the appearance of the lips enough to make an improvement, but not so much that patients look like they've had lip augmentation.
"I came in from out of state to have my procedures done with Dr. Virden. He is extremely personable, knowledgeable and confident in what he does. On the day of my pre-op, as I was flying into Reno, my flights were diverted and delayed and I didn't get in until late. Dr, Virden went above and beyond to meet with me outside of normal office hours to make sure I was ready and confident for surgery the next morning. He is caring and attentive and checked in on me over the weekend after the surgery. I'm extremely happy with my results. My breasts look amazing and my tummy flat! I have had minimal pain after surgery and I attribute that to having an extremely skilled surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Virden!"- Google User / Google / Nov 22, 2016
"Dr. Virden and his wife are both lovely people. I felt very comfortable, and they both took their time in answering any questions I had. They really get on a personal level with you and do not make you feel like nothing more than a patient, I felt like a friend. Thank you. I would highly recommend and also will be back myself."- D.K. / Google / Mar 01, 2019

"I can't say enough about Leah at Dr. Virdens office. She is kind, gentle, and very knowledgeable. She makes you feel completely comfortable and you know she genuinely cares about you during and after your procedure. I had BBL and she checked on several times after. I'm so pleased the the outcome. I will definitely be a returning to this office."- J.S. / Yelp / Feb 01, 2019
"Dr Virden is incredible. If you are looking for natural look, he's your doctor. He did upper and lower eyes on me. I look much younger and I love the results. Very natural looking too in that you can't tell I had surgery at all. Highly recommend!"- R.M. / Google / Jan 16, 2019
The best candidates for Volbella injectable treatments want a subtle increase in lip volume and have:
- Lost volume in their lips due to aging
- Naturally thin lips
- Vertical lip lines
What to Expect
Usually, patients are able to receive their first Volbella injection right after their consultation in the office. The lips and surrounding area will be cleaned and prepped before the injections are carefully placed in specific points of the lips (e.g. vermilion body, philtral columns, Vermilion border, Cupid's bow). Patients will be able to leave the office right after their treatment and resume their normal activities.
Volbella patients will see an increase in lip volume and reduction in lip lines for up to one year after their treatment. Patients should schedule follow-up appointments to maintain their results. In Juvéderm surveys, 80% of patients were happy with their Volbella results one year after their injection. 75% were satisfied with the improvement in vertical lip lines one year after their treatment.
