What makes Juvéderm Voluma™ XC different?
While other dermal fillers are used primarily to fill in lines and plump only surface areas like the lips Juvéderm Voluma™ is the first and only product that was specifically developed to add volume underneath the skin. Because it is used subdermally, Juvéderm Voluma™ plumps from below, adding firmness and fullness back to the cheeks, chin and jaw.
A cousin of Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus , the Voluma™ product was created with different technology that allows it to actually lift and volumize skin while also lasting longer than other injectable products.
Although Voluma™ is different from other dermal fillers, it was not intended to replace them. Voluma™ has a job separate from other products like Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus. While Voluma™ volumizes and plumps, Juvéderm Ultra and Ultra Plus fill lines and wrinkles. Used together, these two types of dermal products create a dramatic difference.
