Juvederm Voluma XC is the newest non-surgical filler from Allergan–the makers of Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, and Botox. It’s becoming a very popular option for many clients. The first question we always hear is “What is the difference between Juvederm Voluma and other fillers?” There are three main differences between Voluma and other HA fillers such as Juvederm Ultra XC, Restylane and Perlane.
When comparing Juvederm Voluma vs Juvederm Ultra XC, you would notice that the texture of Ultra is similar to pudding while the texture of Voluma is closer to Jello. This thicker texture gives the new filler its unique lifting properties and also leads to differences in where it can be placed in the face.
Voluma is specifically designed to be injected deep in the dermis and to lay right on top of your facial bones. This ability to sit deep and stay in place is exactly what makes Voluma useful for particular injection sites and treatment outcomes. Voluma works best when it’s injected into the upper cheek or middle cheek or the chin. Although other Dermal Fillers can be used, Voluma has the advantage of having longer lasting properties.
List of Common Juvederm Voluma Injections Sites:
- Cheeks (upper cheeks and mid cheek)
Voluma will not be used under the eyes, in the lips or along the nasolabial folds (those lines going between the corners of your mouth and your nose). All of those injection sites require a thinner, more moldable filler to smoothly lay into the contour of your face.
List of Injection Sites Juvederm Voluma WILL NOT be Used For:

How long does Juvederm Voluma last? According to Allergan, under optimal conditions the filler can last up to two years. Conditions vary, but it’s safe to say that you’ll get a longer lasting result from a Voluma treatment than some of your other filler options.
