Here at the Offices of Jim Brantner, MD, we get a lot of questions about the different kinds of Juvederm injectable fillers we offer: Vollure, Volbella, and Voluma. Here’s a quick primer on the differences between these three injectables, and what they can do for you!
First, the similarities: all three products are made from molecules of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the skin. Hyaluronic acid helps keeps skin plump and looking youthful. Each product is made by converting this sugar into a gel that can be used to achieve specific goals. All three injectables are minimally invasive and include a numbing agent to minimize discomfort. What are the differences?
- Volbella is the thinnest gel, and the most spreadable. It’s best for fine areas around eyes and lips. Volbella is also used to smooth scarring leftover from facial acne.
- Voluma is the thickest, strongest, and longest lasting gel. It’s best for deeper injections around the cheeks. It’s been likened to a “liquid facelift.”
- Vollure is a nice middle ground of the other two – it has flexibility and staying power. It’s especially great for the area around the nose because it allows freedom of movement and expression but still has staying power.
But which filler is best for you? Only a consultation with Dr. Brantner can answer that. Together you’ll go over your goals, address any concerns and questions you may have and decide on the best course of action to achieve your goals! Contact us today to set up an appointment.
