Volbella® Filler


Volbella® is a soft tissue filler by Allergan, the makers of Juvederm, and is especially effective for enhancing the lips. Dr. Bielfield and the team at Austin Derm & Vein are excited to offer this innovative filler at the practice and help patients who want to fill and smooth out their lips for a more youthful appearance.


Volbella® has a very smooth, gel-like consistency and this helps create a very full and natural look within the soft tissues of the lips. Volbella® can be very effective for changing the shape and overall appearance of the lips without multiple injections. It’s made with a proprietary formulation of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. It also contains lidocaine to help minimize some of the discomfort and pain commonly associated with injectable fillers.

Volbella® can produce results for up to 1 to 2 years, depending on the amount of filler used and the patient. The filler is slowly metabolized by the body so you won’t see any sudden changes over time. Volbella® can be especially effective for:

  • Creating fuller and plumper lips
  • Correcting lip asymmetries
  • Softening fine lines around the mouth
  • Smoothing out lines on the lip’s surface
  • Enhancing the shape and curvature of the lips


Many patients choose Volbella® because this filler creates very natural-looking results. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes and the lips may be numbed with topical lidocaine before injecting.

The treatment starts by cleaning and preparing the area. Next, the filler is injected into different parts of the lips and around the edges (vermilion border). Most patients only feel a small pinch during treatment as the lidocaine in the injection starts to work right away. There is no downtime but most patients do experience some swelling and mild discomfort as the lidocaine wears off. Redness, swelling, and light bruising is common for a few days and up to 2 weeks post-treatment.
