Juvederm Voluma Treatment ProcessDifferent parts of the body age at different rates. For many, the face ages much faster than the heart, making us look older than we feel.

Faces age with each afternoon in the sun, every funny sitcom and naturally as the collagen fades over time.

Difference between Voluma and Botox

Botox and Voluma are different products that are designed to treat different cosmetic goals. Botox injection treatments reduce wrinkles by creating smoother skin. Specifically, Botox targets frown lines, brow furrows, crow’s feet and bunny lines around the nose. Botox and Voluma can be used together for a younger appearance by reducing wrinkles and adding volume to the face.
