Juvederm Volbella is a soft, smooth gel suitable for adding subtle volume to the lips and softening the appearance of perioral lines. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid within attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to one year.

As a prominent leader in injectable treatments, Dr. Greene was selected by Allergan as one of the first physicians in the United States to offer Juvederm Volbella.

Patients regularly travel to Dr. Greene from outside of the state and from the Caribbean as well for their filler treatments.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF LIP ENHANCEMENT LAST?

The results of lip enhancement vary from patient to patient. However, in experienced hands, the results of a lip enhancement should last for between six and twelve months. Many of Dr. Greene’s patients even notice some enhancement well beyond a year after treatment.

Dr. Greene’s specially formulated topical numbing cream is applied for 15 to 20 minutes prior to treatment. Treatment takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to perform.
