Juvederm Ultra Plus vs Juvederm Voluma?
Doctor Answers 12
Voluma for Volume, Structure and LIFT
In my opinion, Voluma is the better option for optimizing volume and contour of your cheeks. It is a more cohesive gel that is designed to hold its place better in that part of your face, whereas Juvederm ultra plus is less cohesive and more of a plumping or polishing type of filler, better suited for lines and shadows in the lower part of your face.
Which is thicker, juvederm ultra plus or voluma?
Hi Jess, Voluma is thicker and lasts longer than Juvederm Ultra Plus. Voluma lasts roughly 18 months and is more expensive than Juvederm Ultra Plus. Please consult with your board certified dermatologist to find out how Juvederm can enhance your face. Good luck, Dr. Downie

Juvederm Ultra Plus versus Juvederm Voluma
Alternatives to Voluma are Restylane Lyft, which is similar to Voluma, Radiesse, and Sculptra. I would recommend investigating these options as well. Of all of the options, Restylane Lyft and Radiesse are often more cost effective as Voluma tends to be a bit pricey.
Voluma Vs Ultra Plus
I offer both of these types of fillers at my practice and I recommend Juverderm over all types of other fillers. Voluma is a thicker substance and it last much longer than Ultra. However, Voluma is advised to be injected in the upper part of the face (cheeks, undereye, temples).Ultra cost less than Voluma and is advised to use around the mouth, lips and other areas in the lower part of the face. Also, there is a medium between Voluma and Ultra, Which is known as Ultra Plus. I hope this answered your question!
Voluma or Ultra Plus?
For adding volume to face, what do you recommend? Juvederm Voluma, or Juvederm Ultra Plus?
For the nasolabial folds either Perlane, Juveredm Ultra-plus or Sculptra works best. For shaping of the lips, we prefer using Juvederm, Restylane or Restylane Silk. To shape the chin and jaw line, Radiesse works best again in MHO.
Hope this helps.
Juvederm Products -- Voluma Versus UltraPlus
Juvederm Voluma vs Ultra Plus
Voluma is the latest product in the Juvederm line and is intended for deeper, longer lasting, volumizing of the face. It is made of hyaluronic acid, as are many other injectable fillers. Perlane is a similar product sold in the Restylane line of facial fillers. Most often when we speak of volumizing fillers we are speaking of filling hollow cheeks and temples. Voluma is the thickest of the fillers in the Juvederm line and is intended for sub-dermal injection (below the skin). Ultra Plus is thinner and intended for more superficial applications, generally used as a dermal filler (within the skin for creases). Finally the Ultra product is the thinnest for more superficial use yet. Ultra Plus can also be injected sub-dermal and would provide similar results to Voluma, however, Voluma is expected to last longer and hold its shape a bit better in those applications. Prior to the introduction of Voluma, most injectors would use Ultra Plus for both sub-dermal and dermal injections and many injectors still do. Allergan (the manufacturer) advertises that reasonable results should last 2 years. Aside from clinical trials, Voluma has only been available in the US for just over 2 years and as such the broader population of patients and doctors are just now able to start vouching for its longevity.
