Thanks for your query. Voluma is thicker and has high density but is designed for certain areas like cheek augmentation or chin augmentation or jaw defining , Juvederm ultra plus is a little less in density than voluma and is suited for nasolabial folds, marionette lines , temporal hollowing and the lightest of all is ultra which is suited for lips and tear troughs. So the type of filler used highly various with area to be filled. All the fillers last for around 8 months to 1 year and volume can last for around 2 years. Hope it helps.

All The Best

Juvaderm vs voluma

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question. Voluma is thicker product and will last up to 2 years, whereas juvaderm lasts about 1 year. This being said, these products are used for different areas and for different goals. You should not make a decision based on which will last longer. An experienced injector can examine you and determine what product is best for you and your desired goals. Many time a combination of a few different fillers is recommended. Good luck to you.

Voluma is thicker. Having said that,the products are not interchangeable. The Juvederm Ultra is used in the dermis while the Voluma is used deeper than that. Using Voluma like Juvederm Ultra has beee used may lead to lumps that can be avoided by using the proper material

Voluma is thicker and lasts longer

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question. Voluma is a longer-lasting and thicker filler due to the way it is cross-linked, making it a better choice for volumizing the face than Juvederm. Juvederm Ultra Plus tends to be a better choice for filling lines and the lips. 

I hope this answer is helpful! Best of luck.

As you already know from the other answers Voluma is thicker and longer-lasting than Juvaderm at a more expensive price point.  An alternative to Voluma that is less costly would be the use of Radiesse which also gives excellent results and also lasts approximately two years or possibly longer.  Meet with several experienced physicians who are also injectors and decide which is your preferred material.  Best wishes,

Thicker products

Voluma is a thicker product than Juvederm Ultra Plus.  Voluma will technically last longer in the face due to it's formulation.

Voluma vs. Juvederm Ultra Plus

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Thank you for your question.  Both Voluma and Juvederm Ultra Plus are made by Allergan and are 2 of my favorite choices for filler in the face.  Voluma has a tighter matrix of molecules and has more cross-linking making it a "thicker" more substantial product that generally lasts up to 2 years depending on the individual biochemistry of the patient.  Voluma is made for the mid-face area and is designed to be injected at a deep level on to the bone which, ultimately, provides lift.  Juvederm Ultra Plus is great for fleshy areas of the face like the marionette lines, nasolabial folds, lips, anywhere where smoothing and softening is needed.  Juvederm Ultra Plus usually lasts around 9 months to a year depending on the patient.   Hope this is helpful and I am wishing you so well on your journey!

Juvederm Ultra Plus vs Voluma

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Both products consist of hyaluronic acid but are manufactured using different methods.  Voluma is meant for deeper placement to give volume and lift, especially in the cheeks.  Juvederm Ultra Plus can be used at a deep level as well as more superficially to fill in hollows and folds.  Both are excellent products.  The most important consideration is to see an expert for your injections.

Facial fillers: Juvederm Ultra Plus and Voluma

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Facial fillers are injected to improve the contours of the face. 

Allergan makes Juvederm a family of hyaluronic acid fillers. The names can get confusing since they all have Juvederm in the name, but each has different properties.

When it comes to "thickness" Juvederm Voluma is the "thickest." Juvederm Voluma can only be injected at a deeper level and it lasts almost 2 years. Juvederm Ultra Plus is "less thick" so it can be injected more superficially that Juvederm Voluma. It also does not last as long, closer to a year.  

I recommend a consultation with a doctor who can explain the differences between each product and where they can be used appropriately in your face for a safe, natural, and happy result. Safety comes first.

Longer lasting--Voluma for the win!

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

They are both made by allergan but voluma lasts up to 2 years, is thicker and needs to be injected more deeply as it has vycross technology and acts more like an implant as compared to juvederm ultra or ultra plus.  Best, Dr. Emer.
