Juvederm XC vs Juvederm Voluma XC – What’s the Difference?
While Juvederm XC is designed to smooth moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, such as the smile lines from the nose to the mouth, Juvederm Voluma XC is designed to add volume to areas like the cheeks.

Juvederm Voluma XC is unique in that it adds volume to the cheeks, which leads to in a subtle lift. Results are instant and are clinically proven to last up to 2 years. Juvederm VolumaXC is available to patients who are over the age of 21.

As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin decreases. This causes the skin to lose both structure and volume.
