Lyft is designed with what is known as a high G1. Without getting too geeky, what a high G1 means for you is increased lift and definition. A high G1 filler is advantageous for locations such as the cheekbone where youthful uplift is desirable and for the jawline where youthful and slimming definition is a real plus.

Juvederm Voluma’s design makes it ideal for areas where a a balance of a good G1 and contouring ability is desirable.

There are locations such as marionette lines and nasolabial folds in which a flexible filler or a smooth flowing gently spreading filler provides an advantage.

Juvederm Vollure is known for its gentle smooth natural spread ability.
