Difference Between Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma
Juvederm is a softer hyaluronic acid filler that
is used primarily in the perioral and lip area. It is excellent in this area
and should not be used in the tear trough area as it can provide too much
volume in this area. Voluma is a deeper volumizing hyaluronic acid filler that
is used primarily in the malar areas and has excellent results. Both are FDA approved, long-lasting fillers that are safe and reversible. These fillers should be injected by
someone with expertise in Filling such as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon,
Dermatologist, or Otolaryngologist, Oculoplastic surgeon with expertise because
placing the filler in the right area and depth with the right amount is key to optimizing
results and safety.
Difference between Juvederm and Voluma
Great question. Voluma is the newest addition to the Juvederm family. The complete name is Juvederm Voluma XC, which can make it difficult to differentiate from Juvederm XC.
They are both HA's fillers.
Voluma is a thicker filler and is best injected into the a DEEP plane. Works great to restore lost volume in the cheek/midface area.
Juvederm XC has a lower G' prime (less thick), and is better for the perioral region and lips.
Hope this was helpful/ Good luck!
Juvederm vs. Juvederm Voluma
Juvederm Voluma™ XC is specially formulated to add volume to
cheeks. Voluma is a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler that is FDA-approved specifically for deep
injection in the cheek area to correct the loss of volume that comes with
aging. To augment lips and achieve greater symmetry and definition, injections
of Juvéderm® XC are the appropriate treatment. The two fillers are not the same
and they cannot be used interchangeably. Additionally, Juvéderm® XC is excellent for plumping out nasolabial folds (from nose to mouth) and softening
marionette lines (from mouth to chin).
Juvederm Voluma, Perlane, Restylane Silk and other options: the injector matters more.
In reality the injector is much more important than the selection of which HA filler to use. In general I would stay away from high G' filers like Voluma because they can easily create strange appearing faces. I explain more about this in the blog linked below which explains why so many filler interventions end up so strange looking. I hope this helps!
All the best,

Juvederm Voluma for lips
Juvederm Voluma is not FDA approved for injection into the lips; however, it can work well when used in the lips as an alternative to Juvederm. The issue with lip injections is longevity. Even though Voluma is FDA approved for longer than Juvederm, this indication is for the cheeks. Because there is so much movement around the lips, products tend to get absorbed quicker anyway. I personally like Juvederm Ultra Plus and Restylane in the lips. Both of these will get you close to 6 months. Voluma may last a few more months but not sure if it's worth the increase in cost.
What is the difference between Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma?
Thank you for your excellent question. Juvederm and Voluma are both hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, differing only on the thickness of the gel injected. Between the two, Juvederm is a thinner gel, used primarily to restore volume in and around the mouth and lips. It can be used in the cheeks as well. Effects are typically seen for 4-6 months. Voluma is a thicker gel, placed deeper in the skin than Juvederm, that is used to lift and augment a patient's cheek/cheekbone region, though it can also be used in the temples and other areas to restore volume. Effects have continued to be seen two years and longer from injections. Both fillers are FDA approved.
Voluma Is Not for Lip Injections
Voluma is designed to be injected into the cheek area. It is an extremely thick, long-lasting product that should not be injected into the lips. Products that are commonly injected into the lips are Restylane and Juvederm Ultra, or sometimes Belotero. Belotero is much thinner and does not last very long in the lips. Belotero also does not have lidocaine in it.
Voluma for lips because it lasts longer? No!
Juvederm Voluma is a new hyaluronic acid filler from the same company that makes Juvederm and Botox (Allergan) . Although made of the same basic hyaluronic acid (HA), Juvederm Voluma has more extensive cross-linking of fibers that make it stiffer and allow it to provide excellent lift to the mid face. The product also lasts longer than Juvederm, up to 18 months or two years, with "full" correction. Due to the thicker nature of Voluma, it is not recommended for the lips, which need to remain soft. Currently, Juvederm Voluma is FDA cleared for cheek enhancement, which both Juvederm Ultra and Restylane are FDA cleared for use in the lips.
Juvederm or Voluma for this lips ?
Voluma is a great cheek augmentation filler. I think its too 'stiff' for lip augmentation and does not have an FDA approval for this zone. Juvederm is my preferred lip filler.
Voluma is a thicker gel that goes deeper into the skin to provide more lift and filling of severe wrinkles and volume loss. Volume can be injected in the lips.
