NO Voluma in the lips
This product is FDA approved for use in the deep layers ( which are not present in the lips!!!) of the midface to correct age related volume loss.
Hope this helps.
Voluma in the Lips?
Voluma use in the lips is "off label", not an indicated use of the product. Some injectors are diluting Voluma and then using it in the lips. We prefer to use Juvederm in the lips and have found that when properly placed, the product seems to be lasting longer and longer. After a few injections over time we find that patients need less and less product to the point where they can go 2 to 3 years or longer without needing further injections. As with all aesthetic facial treatments, it is most important to choose your treating physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.

Results for the lips tend to wear away faster simply because you move them much, much more than other parts of your face.However, there is another Juvederm filler that is specially designed for the lips. It is called Volbella, and has been found to achieve results that can last up to a year.
Voluma not for the lips
Juvederm Voluma is not indicated for the lips
At this time I have not found Juvederm Voluma to be as natural in the lips because of its firmness. My filler of choice remains Juvederm Ultra. Results with repeat injections can last up to one year.
I will use it however off label to:
Fill the temples
Filling the jaw line to smooth out jowls
Filling deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines

It may be that Voluma may become one of the ideal fillers for the lips. Time and experience will prove it to be ideal or less than ideal. The FDA has approved the filler in the cheeks but as with all fillers that are approved for the face, experienced physicians can and do us the product off-label. The FDA does not tell physicians how to practice medicine but does decide what devices are safe for human use. This is a win-win for the patient as they can have the best minds and artists in medicine performing their procedures with the best minds and scientists in medicine assuring that the products being used are safe .
