I am getting Juverderm Voluma. Even though I hear Restylane is better for the lips, can Juverderm Voluma be injected in the lips? Thank you.
What is the difference between Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma?

The Difference Between Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus and Voluma
Juvederm Voluma is the newest product in the Juvederm family. This product is extremely viscous, designed to be injected in the mid-face, for adding volume (hence, the name). Voluma is great for lifting the cheeks and improving the contours of the face, whereas Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus would be good for the nasolabial folds and other wrinkles.
JUVEDERM VOLUMA VS JUVEDERM ULTRA AND ULTRA PLUS
Voluma has been released early to a select group of experienced experienced injectors. Outstanding results may be achieved by skilled providers, so make sure to choose your doctor carefully.
Voluma is different than Juvederm
Voluma is thicker and tends to give more lift. It is ideal for the cheeks. Juvederm spreads a little more so it is a little softer. It is ideal for the lips, nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines.
We are fortunate that there are now many great fillers. Your cosmetic surgeon can help you decide what customized treatment is best for you.
Best Voluma Treatment
Voluma is a much thicker form of Juvederm that has a much greater lifting capacity and lasts up to 2 years. In our experience at Persky Sunder Facial Plastic Surgery we are finding that Voluma is a revolutionary facial filler in it's capacity to revolumize the cheeks and face. Voluma is not a commodity, it is very dependent on the artistic vision, facial analysis, and technical skill/experience of the injecting physician. It is most important that patients take the time to research and choose their injecting physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.
Juvederm Voluma versus Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus
Best Dermal Fillers for Lip Volume
Juvederm for Lips
Both Juvederm and Voluma are hyaluronic acid (HA) products, but they are crosslinked differently. Because of the structure of Juvederm, it is best used to treat fine to moderate lines and wrinkles in the lower face and around the mouth, lasting about a year. Voluma is the only FDA-approved filler indicated to replace volume in the midface. It is used for relifting the cheek and midface region to restore a natural curve and lasts at least 2 years.
Regarding lip injections, Voluma is not indicated for use in that area. Juvederm Ultra or Restylane would provide the most natural-looking results.
