Juvederm Voluma is also a hyaluronic acid based filler product that come with lidocaine added for comfort. It is like the Juvederm except that the molecules is having more cross linkages which make it a higher viscosity gel. Because of these linkages, it degrade more slowly, and hence last longer than the Juvederm.
As the name suggest, it is used mostly for augmenting the volume deficit, mostly for the cheek, Indian folds and the like of such as the naso-labial folds. The main indication of Juvederm Voluma is for cheek augmentation. Juvederm voluma is not used for tear trough filling for erasing eye bag, or eye bag removal.

The replacement of this with the Juvederm Voluma will restore back the volume and structural support. The effect is instant, and helps to smooth out lines, wrinkles and folds, giving a silky smooth appearance to the skin.
Juvederm Voluma achieve its effect due to a n innovation of manufacturing procedure/ process called the HYCLACROSS technology.
HYCLACROSS gives Juvederm Voluma its unique smooth feel gel property, and also robust gel structure that can hold up its structure for a long time of as much as one year despite heavy mechanical movement around the mouth, with just a single therapy.
Juvederm Voluma is formulated with lignocaine anaesthetic and hence it give an extra comfort during and after injection. It provide a smooth and natural looking skin and folds and a painless experience. It also cancel out the bruising effect of plain Juvederm due to the addition of lignocaine.
