Volux: The Ultimate Solution for Natural-Looking Facial Rejuvenation
What is Volux?
Volux is the newest injectable of Allergan’s Juvederm fillers, the first and only hyaluronic acid filler to receive FDA approval for jawline definition. The new Volux is specifically designed to improve definition and lost volume in the chin and jawline areas by adding even more structure and lift capacity. The anesthetic contained in the treatment makes it pain free, allowing for deep injection under the skin with minimal side effects. The latest studies have found significant improvement in jawline definition and patient satisfaction in the months following treatment.
Benefits of Volux
Volux specifically caters to the demands of those seeking out sharp sculpted jaws. The hyaluronic acid base common to Juvederm products adds plumpness to the skin. This counteracts lines and wrinkles while adding youthful volume to the face. Unlike its predecessors, Volux is a uniquely dense gel that mimics bone, making it adept at lifting tissue. By adding such defined volume, it can drastically improve the appearance of lost definition and counteract the formation of jowls.
An additional benefit of the firmness is its lengthened durability: Volux is developed to give up to 2 years of beautiful results, making it an effective alternative to invasive surgeries for facial reconstruction. The new filler allows for restoration without the risks and downtime associated with surgeries that would produce the desired result. Here is a nonsurgical yet long lasting route to producing immediate results in improved bone structure!
Cost and Pricing
Pricing for patients receiving Volux injections typically ranges between $2,000-$6,000, depending on the number of syringes needed and the area being treated. Most patients need 1-2 syringes for a cheekbone session, and four to six for chin/jawline fillers.
How the Procedure Works
A doctor will assess your face, looking for apparent signs of aging, volume deficits, and deep lines or wrinkles. Using this to guide your desired look, a small needle is used to inject the product into the areas of interest. Numbing cream or anesthetic can also be used to make the experience more comfortable, but will only take about 30 minutes. There is no downtime but patients should expect a bit of swelling, redness or discomfort. Results can be seen immediately.
The injections can last up to 2 years, but will slowly be absorbed by the face and into the body overtime. Thus, many patients return for touch ups about once a year to maintain the results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you are looking for an efficient and effective way to bring youth back into the structure of the face, Volux may be the perfect solution for you. The thick filler mimics bone in a unique way to add volume to raised areas of the face. If this sounds appealing, consider a consultation to find out if Juvederm Volux is right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Juvederm Volux used for?
Juvederm Volux was specifically designed as filler to mimic bone structure for the jawline and cheekbones. Thus, the filler is uniquely dense in order to provide extra lift, definition, and sculpting.
What is the difference between Volux and Voluma?
Volux is thicker and denser than Voluma, making it especially effective at adding definition and structure to the face, specifically the cheekbones and jawline. Voluma, on the other hand, is better for addressing volume loss in the cheeks.
How long does Juvederm Volux last?
Volux can last up to two years, with the best results lasting for about 12 months. Patients typically go in for touch ups about once a year as the filler dissolves and is absorbed by the skin.
Is Juvederm better than Botox?
Juvederm facial fillers and Botox address very different concerns. Juvederm was designed to address the facial structure by correcting volume loss or adding definition to targeted areas. Botox, on the other hand, is designed to essentially freeze the muscles of the face so as to prevent wrinkles and aging in the face. Thus, the two can be combined to address the various needs of the patient based on desired goals, but it is hard to say one is better than the other. Both are great, minimally invasive options to rejuvenating the face and getting a youthful look!
Which Juvederm lasts the longest?
Juvederm Voluma lasts the longest.
