Voluma Pricing - The Top Docs MAY have great prices

Let me start by saying never "price shop" for surgery or any aesthetic enhancement with a lasting result. Having said that, Allergan the maker of Voluma offers rebates to the top providers of all their products. Therefore, the top providers will actually pay less for the product than others. Of course there is a premium cost to the practice for very best nurse injectors and a pristine environment. However, the pricing may still be very competitive for the most experienced injectors. 

Keep in mind, nothing will be more expensive than a result that is not performed to your satisfaction. Voluma lasts up to two years. take your time, have a lot of consults, view a lot of photos and do not be pressured into a procedure.

Voluma costs

Each practice will charge a slightly different price for Voluma. You will see ranges from $600 -1,000. We charge $800 for first syringe and $700 for each additional syringe.  Cheek augmentation is an advanced technique for filler injection. Make sure you go to somebody that has a tremendous amount of experience in this area as you're making a big investment.

It's a $1000

Voluma is unique and specific for upper cheek augmentation. This will typically require 2 syringes, which each cost $1000.

Voluma cost

One syringe of Voluma at our office will cost $975 with the second syringe discounted at $875.  Typically you will need two syringes (one for each cheek).  I agree with previous posts that it is never good to price shop for cosmetic services- what you really want is a skilled injector who can tailor the injections for you specifically.  Top injectors do frequently have specials and discounts, so choose your injector first and then worry about the price!

How Much Does Voluma Cost? Buyer Beware!

Voluma (Allergan, Irvine,CA) is a revolutionary facial filler that has just been FDA approved for use in the U.S. Voluma has been used outside of the US for many years. Voluma is the longest lasting hyaluronic acid filler, lasting up to 2 years. It is an enhanced form of Juvederm, an injectable filler that we have been using for years.

The most pressing question about Voluma is, “How much does Voluma cost?” The answer to this question is complex.

At Persky Sunder Facial Plastic Surgery the cost of Voluma varies depending on how much the patient needs. Both Dr. Persky and Dr. Sunder are Master Injectors of Voluma, having completed the de Maio Master’s Voluma Technique Course taught by the brillant Mauricio de Maio, MD, Sao Paulo, Brazil, a renowned plastic surgeon and expert Voluma pioneer injector. Dr. Sunder and Dr. Persky were privileged to be included in the group of only 30 US facial filler injectors to be recently trained by Dr. de Maio.

The FDA approval studies on Voluma concluding that Voluma lasts up to 2 years was based on the trial US physicians injecting an average of 5 to 6 syringes of Voluma. 5 to 6 vials of Voluma is a very expensive proposition. Dr. Persky and Dr. Sunder (as well as our patients) have benefited from de Maio’s Advanced Master techniques by becoming experts in where to inject Voluma to get the “biggest bang for the buck.” Dr. de Maio, and now Dr. Persky and Dr. Sunder are consistently able to get the same or even better facial aesthetic rejuvenation with 1 to 2 syringes of Voluma, rather than having to use 5 to 6 syringes. Therefore our patients benefit not only from a natural facial rejuvenation of their cheeks, eyes, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jowls, and jawlines, but they are able to achieve those results with less expense.In order to achieve these dramatic results with less Voluma, all patients undergo a comprehensive beauty analysis by our physicians. It is the beauty evaluation, technical injection skills, and most importantly artistic vision of Drs. Persky and Sunder that results in very high patient satisfaction and natural aesthetic results.

The cost of Voluma at Persky Sunder Facial Plastic Surgery varies from $1200 to $800 per syringe depending upon how much volume the patient needs over a year’s time. The first syringe of Voluma is $1200, each syringe used at the same injection session or over the next few month's time is $50 to $100 less.

Voluma lasts up to 2 years. As with all aesthetic procedures involving the face, it is most important to choose your physician most carefully. There will be plenty of clinics offering Voluma at discounted prices, injected by non-physicians and even untrained, inexperienced physicians, both of whom may lack the artistic vision to insure excellent, natural results. Unfortunately we will be seeing more “Housewives of Beverly Hills, Housewives of Miami, etc.” cheeks and lips on a stick" unnatural results from improper Voluma injection techniques.

Buyer beware!  Choose your injecting physician most carefully.  Good luck and be well.

Cost of Voluma filler


The cost of Voluma filler depends on many factors including country of treatment, as well as most importantly who is injecting you (e.g. an expert such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon versus god knows who), and the amount injected (e.g. there is often a volume discount given. The range is typically $600-$1000 per syringe. 1 syringe per cheek is a great starting point, although if you're under 40, you might consider trying 1/2 syringe per side to start.

Voluma costs more but lasts longer!


You can expect to pay about 1.5 to 2 times  as much for Voluma as for the other HA fillers. When you think about it, that is a good deal since it lasts twice as long or more in many patients.  The number of syringes used to restore cheek volume is generally 2 to 4 in my experience. More for the very severely volume depleted patient.

How much does Voluma cost?

Voluma is being priced, in most cases, between $800-1000 per syringe. Most patients are going to require 2-3 syringes. Be very careful who you choose as your injector. Voluma is a newer product that is very unique. It is a great cheek filler and volumizer but should not be used in some of the areas where Juvederm is currently used. Ensure that your phyisican injector has been trained or, ideally, is a trainer for the company that makes Voluma.

How much does Voluma cost


The average price for Voluma, like any filler, will be a mix of the cost of the actual filler to the injector and the injector's experience. I have seen Voluma priced for about $799 per syringe and up from there.
