How long does Volbella last?
You should see immediate improvement in the treated areas. Best results are seen in two weeks. Results vary but may last 6 months to one year.
What should I expect with Volbella treatments?
The doctor will go over a list of pre and post treatment procedures with you. If you are taking aspirin or ibuprofen you may experience increased bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Inform your physician. The safety of Volbella has not been established in breastfeeding females, during pregnancy, or in patients under the age of 18.
What are post treatment procedures?
For the first 24 hours following treatment, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat, and consumption of alcoholic beverages. This minimizes the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the treatment sites. These temporary side effects generally resolve themselves within one week. An ice pack can be applied to the site if you experience swelling. You may apply make-up as usual.
