Lips - Juvederm ultra 3 vs Juvederm Volift?

The first time I had my lips done I had juvederm ultra 3. I wanted them bigger so I had a further syringe 4 weeks later and was given juvederm volift. Which one is better and will last the longest & what is the pros and cons of one versus the other? Thank you

Fillers for the lips

Thank you for your question Pinky249. I understand your concern. Vollure is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance the appearance of wrinkles and folds on the face. In the United States we have 2 fillers in the Juvederm family which are cleared for use in the lips: Volbella and Juvederm Ultra. I find that Volbella works better for subtle enhancement such as improving the border definition and addressing fine lines on or around the lips while Juvederm works better for adding volume.

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

Best filler for the lips?

Thank you for your question. In my opinion, the choice of the filler depends on your desired outcome. If you want natural and subtle lip augmentation and filling, Volbella is FDA approved for lips and can give this outcome. If you like bigger volume than volift might be a better option.


I hope this helps. Best wishes (Dr. Salameh, Plastic Surgeon, Bowling Green, KY)

Thanks for your query.Juvederm ultra is better for lips as it is lighter and works very good for the soft tissue augmentation. Juvederm volift is a litte heavy and it works better for contouring. Hope it helps.

Thank you for sharing your question.  Though not available in the US JVD Volift is a thicker, longer-lasting dermal filler than ultra 3.  It is more appropriate for achieving greater volume than ultra, which is better at achieving definition.  Hope this helps.

Juvederm and Volbella

Both products are great for the lips. Volbella is newer and is a little more spongy in nature and ideal for the lips. They both can last around a year. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
