What Is the Difference between VOLUMA and other Facial Fillers?
What sets Voluma apart from other fillers is the cutting-edge Vycross technology that gives it a uniquely thick and robust consistency, making it ideal to treat age-related volume loss. The Vycross technology refers to the way the HA molecules are bonded together to provide longer duration and strength.
What features make the “Ideal Youthful Face”? Volume. As the face ages, our cheeks flatten as volume disappears and your profile “goes South”. Facial experts now focus on rebalancing this volume change.

How long does VOLUMA last?
Individual results may vary, but with optimal correction, Voluma can last up to 18 months to two years. In clinical studies, 67% of patients retained a clinically significant response to Voluma at 2 years, and 76% of patients reported increased satisfaction with their appearance. Since Voluma is a very long-lasting filler you typically would not need to be treated again for a long time. However re-injection may be needed a few weeks after your initial injection if you need more volume or more lift to complete your desired look. Often it is better to be conservative and touch-up if needed.
Why should I use VOLUMA for volumizing instead of other Juvéderm products?
Although other Juvéderm products such as Ultra Plus can offer robust contouring in areas such as the nasal folds, Voluma is specially designed for true volumizing and lifting in areas as the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin.
