Volux most closely mimics bone (as opposed to fat or skin, which other dermal fillers better replicate the feel of). This makes it ideal for replacing lost or wanted volume in the chin, jawline, and other bony prominences within the face. If you’ve been wanting to sculpt a more defined jawline, or if you have notice jowls along with an ill-defined or not straight jawline, Volux is a great filler to consider!
Volux is Juvederm’s newest Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler, introduced to US markets in 2023, after receiving FDA Approval in August 2022. It’s part of the VyCross range, their newer range (Hylacross is the older range). Vycross products have a gel consistency and hold up better under the stresses of movement, making them more durable, especially in areas of high movement, like the chin, jawline, etc. Volux is also in a class of fillers that can be dissolved if necessary.

The Best Volux™ Injections:
Which Areas Are Treated with Volux for the Best Results
Jawline, Jowls, & Chin Treatment with Volux Filler
Volux is FDA-Approved for the jawline and chin, and specifically for improving jowls by injecting in these areas, which makes it unique in the market, because almost no other HA fillers have been studied in these areas (despite being safely used off-label in these areas). What does this additional study mean, compared to the others? It means we have very clear answers about duration, techniques, risks/safety, and suitability, which allows us to be very certain about how this filler will perform for each and every patient that we offer it to.
Volux in the jawline or chin offers a very natural result that lasts up to 2 years and improves the appearance of nearby jowls or sagging skin. It has the longest duration that any HA filler offers. Most patients experience results that last even longer as fillers have been determined to stimulate production of natural collagen and elastin.
Volux offers a different result, a more natural-feeling result, for these areas than previous filler formulations. In the past, Voluma and Radiesse, and maybe Defyne, were really the best options for this area. Radiesse does a good job of mimicing bone, but it is not dissolvable or reversible like Hyaluronic Acid is. Voluma and Defyne were used in these areas, but they both mimic firm tissue, not bone. And we all lose bone in these areas, so it will always look the most natural if we are able to replace it with something that mimics that same density and texture, which is what Volux does.
- Potential Downtime: Mild swelling is common and bruising, though uncommon, can occur.
- Numbing: Volux contains lidocaine, which, in addition to advanced injection techniques makes Volux a comfortable treatment
- Risks: All Injections of filler carry some risks. The most common risks are bruising and swelling, the rarest risk are the most serious, with occlusion being the main concern.
- Appropriate Treatment Areas: Chin, Jawline, Pre-Jowl (area in front of jowl), Sulcus, Deep Cheeks, Temples
- Naturalness of Results: Very natural, given correct technique. Physicians should be the only ones to inject Volux
- Cost: $1100 per syringe
The Best Volux Injectors in New Jersey are at Reflections Center
At Reflections Center, only physicians inject filler, and each of our physicians have years of experience with injections of filler and Botox. In addition, we were some of the first in the country to receive training on Volux and to be able to order and use it in our practice.
Today, our doctors are thrilled to be able to add this filler to our arsenal. In the hands of our doctors, we expect it to offer the same natural-looking results we’ve become known for, with an added boost of longevity and more natural feel for areas of bony prominence.

Frequently Asked Questions About Volux
- What are the risks of Volux filler injections?
The injection of Volux carries some risks that all injections carry, like the potential for redness and swelling at the injection site, bruising, infection, etc., which are risks due to a needle poking the skin. Volux also carries some risks that all other fillers carry, which include nodules, occlusion, autoimmune disorder exacerbation, itching, migration, allergic reaction, bleeding, etc. These more serious risks are very rare with fillers, but you always want to see a doctor who can assess your individual risk profile, and who can also provide the best recourse treatments, should these occur. Not all injectors have the resources (materials and training, experience) to effectively treat these adverse events with the standard of care they should be handled with. This is something our office takes quite seriously and is well-prepared for.
- Is Volux the same as Voluma?
No, Voluma is less stiff than Volux. The image below gives some insight into how the juvederm brands of filler compare, which includes both Voluma and Volux.
- What is Volux filler?
Volux is an HA filler, or a filler made of hyaluronic acid. Most of the popular fillers used in the US are HA fillers. Volux is the stiffest of the HA fillers, and it mimic bone. So it’s used in the jawline, chin, pre-jowl sulcus (the indentation on either side of the chin behind which jowls will form as you age), the nose, deep within the cheeks, and temples.
- How long does Volux filler last?
In the clinical studies, Volux lasted 12 – 24+ months in the jawline. There is some variability in this based on the individual, the injection technique – and there will also be some variability based on where it’s used (we imagine many will use it in other areas).
The important thing to remember is that you can formulate a filler treatment around what leads to the longest duration, or you can focus on the best results and tailor your injection choices around that. In our practice, natural results trump everything, which is why we’re excited for Volux, because it’s an even more natural feeling/looking filler for areas of bony prominence and it offers some of the longest duration of results of any HA filler on the market. In this case, you’re getting the best of both!
- Can juvederm Volux be used on cheeks?
It can, when placed very deep against the bone. It likely won’t be as common as Voluma and other fillers for use in the cheeks. However, Radiesse is similarly a very dense, stiff filler, and it has been used in the cheeks for decades, with natural results.
