Volbella® Gives You Something New to Smile About

Posted On: November 29, 2016

Have you seen those duck-lip selfies? Posing for pictures with a Donald-like pout has become quite popular with certain people (we’d say teens, but grown women regularly do it, too—don’t think we don’t notice!), filling everything from social media feeds to family photo albums. You may have a great reason for making the same bird-based expression every time a flash goes off, but our guess is that a duck face is actually a wish for fuller lips. You can fake it by contorting your mouth and cheeks, or you can try the new Volbella® at Grand Rapids’ Bengtson Center.

Approved by the FDA for lip augmentation and the correction of lip lines in June 2016, Volbella® is the newest member of the Juvéderm® family, joining the other established volumizing products in the Allergan family.

While some formulations are ideal for filling in unwanted facial creases and another is intended for rounding out cheeks that have flattened over time, Volbella® is all about the lips. The results are temporary, but long lasting, enhancing your kiss-makers for about a year. That’s 12 months of perfectly pouty selfies, and all you have to do is smile.

The Bengtson Center was one of the first practices in the region to offer this newly approved dermal filler, giving Dr. Bengtson’s patients an advantage in their ongoing efforts to find the most flattering look. Two members of our team are national trainers who teach others how to best administer Volbella®—which means our aesthetic experts have had a head start and are prepared to help you perfect your pucker and leave the duck-face to Donald and his fine feathered friends.
