How is Voluma different

Many people ask if Juvéderm Voluma XC is an updated version of, or replacement for, the familiar Juvéderm XC that you know and love. The answer is, no. These two products address different issues and volume is thicker, lifts better and looks just as natural.

Juvéderm XC is a rather thin, ultra-smooth hyaluronic acid formula indicated for lessening moderate to severe folds and wrinkles in the mouth area. It is excellent for subtle contouring and fine details. However, for large areas with more extreme loss, the filler needs to be injected in deeper tissues. This calls for a thicker, more robust formula. This is where Juvéderm Voluma excels. In fact, it is the first, and at the time of this writing, the only dermal filler to win FDA approval for instantly adding volume in the cheek area. I use Voluma to add volume all over the face, and it can be used off label in the hands to put volume back in the hands, make the hands look less bony and much young. I call it hand rejuvenation.


Although Juvéderm Voluma XC was only recently approved in the United States, it has been in use in other nations for several years, and undergone extensive clinical trials in the United States and Canada. Physicians and patients alike are raving about the predictability and longevity of results.

The benefits include:

  • Results have been clinically proven to last up to eighteen months
  • Instant correction of volume loss in the cheek area
  • Formulated with lidocaine for comfortable treatment
  • Can be reversed with hyaluronidase injections
  • Little to no downtime
  • Smooth formula achieves beautiful, natural looking results

Juvéderm Voluma XC can be used alone or in conjunction with other dermal fillers or other anti-aging treatments as part of a customized plan to address all of your concerns.
