What’s the Difference Between Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Voluma?

When it comes to looking younger – without looking “overdone” – it’s important to include Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma in your anti-aging regimen.  While anti-wrinkle injections and serums can help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, truly youthful faces have plenty of volume in certain areas; specifically the cheeks and lips.

As we get older, facial fat begins to break down.  This effect can create a hollow look, which is especially prominent in the cheek and lip areas.  Therefore, in order to get the most natural-looking youthful appearance, it’s important to add volume to these places.

Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma are the best non-surgical options for adding volume to key areas of your face. Both dermal fillers are FDA-approved, and come with high customer satisfaction ratings. Both fillers can help you look years younger in under thirty minutes.

But when it comes down to it, what’s the difference between these two innovative treatments?

Juvederm Volbella is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, a natural compound found within the body that forms the building block for collagen.  Juvederm’s hyaluronic acid filler is a soft gel, which is then inserted in the lips and around the mouth.  The softer gel composition ensures that your lips can still enjoy natural movements, without feeling too stiff.  Since the mouth is in constant motion, it’s important that a softer, more viscous gel be used to accommodate these movements.

Juvederm Voluma is also a hyaluronic acid filler; however, the gel is much thicker and firmer than Juvederm.  This thickness makes it an ideal choice for treating lost volume in the cheek regions.  Once Juvederm Voluma is injected into the treatment area, it immediately volumizes the cheeks, creating a more naturally youthful appearance.  The plumping effect also minimizes any wrinkles and creases in the cheeks.

These dermal fillers can be used at the same time; they can also be used in conjunction with Botox treatments for superior anti-aging results.
