Juvederm is the like the magical wand you’ve always wanted. Between all the different Juvederm types, it can soften facial lines, wrinkles and folds, along with making your lips appear fuller and more contoured. We know it can get confusing distinguishing the difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra plus XC, Vollure, Volbella, Voluma, so we’ve made a guide breaking down the difference of the different products ! Although they’re all in the same family, they can all be used for different things.
- Juvederm Ultra & Juvederm Ultra Plus
Both products now come in “XC” form as well, which means that lidocaine has been added to the product for an anesthetic effect with injection. Both products are similar in how they spread out into the tissue a little more than some other facial filler products. They also tend to absorb more water when injected, and so Juvederm injections can swell more than some of the other products in general. For this reason, Juvederm products are generally not the best choice for treating the area around the eyes. The difference between Juvederm Ultra and Juvederm Ultra Plus is the size of the particles, with Juvederm Ultra Plus having a larger particle size, and thus a longer duration of action. In my experience, Juvederm Ultra typically lasts 6-9 months while Juvederm Ultra Plus typically lasts 9-12 months. The softness of the Juvederm family of products generally makes them excellent choices for treating nasolabial folds and the corners of the mouth. These products are also usually my first choice for plumping the lips. Juvederm Ultra is a little softer than Juvederm Ultra Plus, but they are both very useful products for similar areas of the face.
- Juvederm Volbella
Juvederm Volbella is a soft and light way for your lips to appear naturally fuller. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler, which means it’s very well accepted by human tissues. The difference between Volbella and other lip fillers is that Volbella has a very light and subtle formula, giving your lips a more natural-looking plumper pout. Even better news? Juvederm Volbella lasts for up to a year, injections only take a few minutes, and there is no downtime! Some people even use Volbella for tear trough filler for the eyes.
- Juvederm Voluma
Juvederm Voluma is a part of the Juvederm family that is wonderful for adding volume to the mid-face region. If you’re experience volume loss in your face and cheeks, Voluma is perfect for you. As we age, our cheeks begin to naturally lose their volume, and the skin may begin to sag. Juvederm Voluma helps correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks to help create a more youthful appearance, and helps contour the face.
- Juvederm Vollure
Juvederm Vollure is softer than Juvederm Voluma, yet more robust than Juvederm Volbella. It’s the perfect balance between the Juvederm types. This dermal filler is ideal for smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Vollure is wonderful because it caters to many patients’ needs, and lasts significantly longer than many other dermal fillers. A typical injection of Juvederm Vollure can last at least one year and up to 18 months.
