Volbella® in Dallas
Enjoy Fuller Lips and Smoother Skin
A little extra volume goes a long way, especially when added to thin lips in need of a boost. Too much, however, can create a puffy, overdone look. That's why the makers of Juvederm® created a dermal filler especially designed to deliver subtle results: Volbella®. Dallas dermatologist Dr. Ellen Turner uses the nonsurgical treatment to give her patients fuller lips that have a natural roundness. The injectable also addresses wrinkles around the mouth for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Like all Juvederm® products, Volbella® can be administered quickly, offers immediate results, and requires no downtime for recovery after a treatment session.
What is Volbella®?
A dermal filler, Volbella® is made of hyaluronic acid molecules that have been cross-linked to create a smooth gel. Since it holds onto water, hyaluronic acid is a carbohydrate responsible for moisturization and lubrication throughout the body. The injectable also contains a small amount of lidocaine, which is an anesthetic to help with a patient's comfort during a treatment session.
Hyaluronic acid and the protein collagen work together in the skin to keep it looking smooth and young, so their gradual loss is what prompts the development of certain wrinkles, including lines around the mouth. Similarly, once-full lips can thin over time as collagen is lost. This breaking down is a natural part of aging, but it can also be hastened by exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight.
Volbella® serves to temporarily replace the volume lost when collagen and hyaluronic acid break down. It can also add volume to lips that have never been particularly full in the first place.
Volbella® Treatment Details
Volbella® is injected into the lips or the area around the mouth with a fine needle. The process takes about 15 minutes. Dr. Turner and her team of medical aestheticians are experienced with a wide variety of injectables, including Juvederm® products, as well as the intricacies of the aesthetics of the face. Their experience means they can tailor each treatment to the individual patient, offering uniquely natural-looking results.
The volumizing results of Volbella®—both in treating lip lines and creating fuller lips—can last up to a year. Over time, the body naturally absorbs and processes the hyaluronic acid in the filler. Patients can return for periodic maintenance injections, when they tend to find that less of the filler is needed to get the same results.

Voluma® is used to add volume to the mid-face, where its disappearance over time leads to harsher angles, flattened areas or hollows, and sagging.
