At Khoobehi & Associates, we are excited to now offer our patients a new injectable filler on the market for thin or asymmetric lips and wrinkles around the mouth called Juvederm Volbella XC. You may request this dermal injectable during a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Kamran Khoobehi, Dr. Jules Walters, or Dr. Sophia Mai. Made with the Allergan VYCROSS filler technology, Volbella consists of a dosage of hyaluronic acid to fill in the lips and smooth the perioral rhytides (lines round the mouth) for a subtle enhancement lasting about a year. Each injection can be personalized for the patient, as this is not a one-size-fits-all type treatment. If you would like to consider this new injectable as a treatment option at one of our locations, please call and schedule a consultation. Same day treatment is available.
"I had a breast augmentation done in 2011. The results were amazing!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 11, 2016
"Dr. Khoobehi and his staff made me feel comfortable and relaxed since the start. The consultation included a 3D image of what the outcome would look like--which helped me to understand how I would look after the surgery. The operation and recovery was swift and smooth. I'd recommend his office to anyone looking for cosmetic procedures."- A. / Healthgrades / Aug 10, 2018

"I have been getting botox and filler with Dr. Khoobehi for almost two years now. I was scared at first of doing this, but I felt completely at ease with Dr. Khoobehi. He takes his time explaining what he recommends, does not push you into getting anything, but will make suggestions. I have complete trust in Dr. Khoobehi and his skills. He does not go overboard with injections, I feel like my look is completely natural."- D.T. / Healthgrades / Aug 08, 2018

Lip and facial injections can provide you with a soft natural look with spectacular results.. Once you have the one-on-one consultation, your first Volbella injection session will take about 15 – 30 minutes in our office. We will cleanse the areas to be injected. If you are worried about pain, we can put a topical numbing gel on the area before the injection. You will feel a minor amount of pain, but keep in mind that the medication is blended with lidocaine as well.
What to Expect
You can expect some redness and swelling in the area after injections as well as bruising. Once you leave our office please limit heavy exercise, protect your face from sun exposure, and abstain from drinking alcohol and NSAIDs for at least 24 hours. If you wish to have chemical peel or facial laser treatment, please tell the person performing these rejuvenation treatments that you have had Volbella injecctions.
Your fees will be dependent on the amount of Volbella you need. During your personalized consultation, we will discuss with you the estimated pricing schedule for your treatment. We can also discuss other injectables (fillers and/or wrinkle relaxers) for different areas of your face and their price points.
am I a Candidate?
Men and women, who meet the age of 21 requirement, make ideal candidates for the Volbella injections (the Food and Drug Administration has not approved this drug for younger persons under 21). If you are taking immunosuppressive therapies, have severe allergies, a history of disproportionate scarring, or are taking blood thinning prescriptions, Volbella may not be the right choice for you. This will all be discussed during a consultation.
What are the risks?
Any medication problems you may have from your Volbella injections should last no more than 30 days, which may include bumpy skin at any site of injection, skin discoloration, swelling, bruising, pain, itching, or hardness under the skin. If you experience any discomforting side effects from this injectable, please contact our office as soon as possible to report it.
Do the injections hurt?
We will take every precaution to make Volbella injections as comfortable as possible. It may look painful when you view a video of the injections, however, we will provide you with a numbing agent (if necessary), and please keep in mind that Volbella has lidocaine blended into it as well. Of course, we do not want you to feel unnecessary pain, and will do our best to limit stinging injections.
