In San Francisco Juvederm is a trusted name for injectable fillers in the world of cosmetic enhancements, and Volbella is among their latest generation of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based fillers. Juvederm Volbella is an injectable dermal filler that is used to decrease the appearance of vertical lines in the lips and to provide a subtle enhancement to lip volume. Dr. Sheena Kong has focused her med spa in SF on anti-aging technologies and treatments, and uses this advanced formula to reduce the appearance of fine lines, and produce a subtle plumping effect on the lips.

The Symptoms of Aging it can address

As the lips age, vertical lines begin to appear, commonly called "smoker's lines" or "lipstick lines," giving the lips and mouth an unattractive, pursed appearance. The lips also start to lose volume over time, losing the plump, lovely appearance of youth. Loss of tissue volume can also leave the edges of the lips poorly defined, and reduce the youthful appearance of the cupid's bow, the M-shaped divot in the middle of the upper lip.

In addition to the lips themselves, the perioral area (tissues around the mouth) start to reveal the effects of aging skin. Fine wrinkles appear, with "marionette lines" extending downward from the corners of the mouth. A slight downturn to the corners of the lips can also give the appearance of a constant frown. Juvederm Volbella injections can effectively reduce these signs of aging.

What to Expect from Your Treatment

Injectable dermal fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment associated with very few, mild side effects. These include temporary swelling, soreness, and a tingling sensation. The different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid in Juvederm Volbella not only allow for a more natural result; they also reduce the amount of water retained in the area following the procedure, minimizing swelling. Volbella injections also include the numbing agent lidocaine, for a higher level of patient comfort. You will be sent home with an ice pack to help alleviate any redness, swelling, or discomfort, and should be able to return to your daily activities immediately.

The effects of Volbella are relatively long-lasting, lasting for up to an entire year after treatment. For facial areas that have been left untreated for some time, a more comprehensive treatment may be required, with Volbella combined with other injectable products to stimulate natural collagen production and enhance results.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

You are on our minds during this recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID 19), and we felt it is appropriate to keep you informed of the procedures and actions we are taking to ensure your health and safety.

Our practice is considered a low risk environment, however, we take the well-being of our patients and staff as our highest priority and it is always best to take sensible precautions during a time like this. Please note the following in regard to all patient appointments:

  • If you have any history of travel (or have come in contact with persons who have traveled) to countries where there has been a confirmed epidemic (China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iran, Italy, Japan, and the US State of Washington), please call our office to reschedule your appointment.
  • We have implemented a “No Hand Shaking” policy at our practice during the outbreak to help limit casual contact and ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Please know that we appreciate you and are always happy to see you!
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness (cough, shortness of breath, fever above 100.4), we respectfully request that you reschedule your appointment at our practice until you are free from any symptoms for a period of at least 48 hours. We have asked our staff to do the same.

In addition to our already extensive level of cleaning and sterilization, we have supplemented these efforts with additional cleaning and sanitization of hard surfaces.

This is indeed a trying time in public health, but we also want you to know that we have some of the most stringent sanitization and infection control standards in any business, making our practice a safe place to visit. Should you have any questions about this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For up to date information on the virus, we would like to refer you to the government website for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, www.cdc.gov

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Sheena Kong and the Staff of Sheena Kong Medspa
