Juvederm Ultra Smile vs Juvederm Volbella for lips?

If you have used both Juverderm Ultra Smile & Juvederm Volbella for enhancing lips, which lasts longer and which creates a fuller lip? I have very thin lips which practitioners have a hard time enlarging. (I do not want to do fat or implants). And are they really just the same product as the regular Juvederm, just marketed under a different name? In which case, I already know they won't work well enough for me. Thank you.

Juvederm Ultra vs Volbella

Both Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Volbella are FDA indicated to last up to 1 year and Juvederm Ultra Plus is indicated to last over 1 year. Volbella is made differently than Juvederm Ultra, in that it's more crosslinked, so it's similar to Voluma. 1 syringe of Juvederm Ultra in the US is 1ML whereas Volbella is .55ML, so dollar for dollar Juvederm Ultra may be a better price for lips.

Volbella vs Juvederm Ultra

Thank you for your question. Juvederm Ultra and Volbella, both Allergan products, are used for 2 different reasons when injected into the lips. They are manufactured in different ways as well. Juvederm Ultra is mainly used to plump the lips, give them shape and volume. Volbella is used for the fine vertical lines around the lips and getting rid of the “barcode” look on the bottom lip and giving the lips a more luscious look. I hope this answers your question. Please seek out an experienced doctor and/or injector.

Juvederm ultra vs volbella for lips

Hi and thank you for your question.

The Juvederm products currently available in the United States for lips Juvederm ultra (and ultra plus) and Juvederm volbella have slightly different formulations/properties that allow each to be used for a different purpose. Juvederm ultra plus is extremely effective to produce a deeper filling effect, such as in the management of deep nasolabial folds, prominent marionette lines and thin lips. Juvederm Volbella is similar in its applications to Belotero and Restylane Silk, i.e. for more superficial lines/wrinkles above or bellow the upper or lower red lip, respectively. It is a new formulation that can last up to 2 years. The product that is eventually chosen depends on efficacy, longevity, volume needed, cost and practitioner preference.

As mentioned by the others surgeons who have already responded to your question, it is important to seek a formal consultation with a specialized cosmetic surgeon prior to deciding on any of these filler treatments. Often times, it is not the product but the technique utilized that results in inadequate results.

Choice of Dermal Fillers for Lips Will Be Made During Consult

Juvederm Ultra Smile is not yet available in the US. Volbella was recently approved by the FDA for use in the lips and periorbital lines. Each Juvederm product has a slightly different technology and consistency. Volbella, for instance, has more of the Vycross cross-linked technology that helps the filler last longer. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to find out which filler is best for you.

Volbella

Volbella is a new filler from Allergan which is ideal for lip lines/smokers lines around the lip.  It comes in 0.6cc syringe volume which is about half the 1.0cc Juvederm volume.  For volume enhancement in the lips, you will get more result with the Juvederm.

Volbella for lips

Volbella is a great product for lip enhancement, and is what we usually use. However, you should get a physical examination as performed by an experienced injector to determine which product would be right for you.

It is difficult to assess which product would be best without a photo or in person evaluation.

It is difficult to assess which product would be best without a photo or in person evaluation. A combination approach may be a good method for enhancing your lips if you have had problems in the past. Even though the products are hyaluronic acids they are cross linked differently.

Juvederm versus Volbella in the lips

Thank you for your question phoebe0101. I understand your concern. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance the lips. Juvederm Ultra can also be placed in the lips. I find that Juvederm Ultra works better for those who desire more volume whereas Volbella works better for those who desire more subtle enhancement such as improvement in the border definition or fine lines in or around the lips.

Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Juvederm Ultra vs Juvederm Lobelia

phoebe0101,

Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Vobella are filler products that both last about a year. They are both made out of hyaluronic acid but have different crosslinking technology, with the main difference being that Juvederm Vobella Vycross cross linking causes less swelling.  The products have different indications, if you are looking for fullness and enhancing lips then Juvederm Ultra is a good choice.  Juvederm Vobella is used for a more subtle natural fullness and definition, and also does a great job for softening and filling the vertical lip lines, or lipstick bleed lines.  Often times fillers can be combined together to get that optimum outcome.
