Voluma has been shown to last for two years. That being said, just because the product is present does not mean you will have the result you desire. There is a critical volume that is required to produce a certain look. Once you dip below that critical threshold the result will change little by little. Most patients find it helpful to get enough product to reach their desired look and then have smaller touch ups over time to keep the outcome they desired.
Duration of Voluma
Important points the note about this: that means it was holding the FDA correction at 24 months, but in reality the product last significantly longer than that. The product degrades slowly over time, it doesn't just all of a sudden disappear one day and you go from having a full tank to an empty tank.
What that means for you, your subsequent treatments may not require as much volume because there is some residual product from the prior treatments left behind. This is true of all fillers.
To ensure you are receiving the highest level of care, seek out a dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.
How Long Does Voluma Last?
What is important is that you plan to keep up with both the slow deterioration and absorption of the material and your natural aging process, which despite the Voluma, does not stop.
Over time, you will need touch ups of the product or newer products as they are developed (maybe even longer lasting!)
You can certainly have one Voluma treatment and never repeat it, but if you, like me personally, like the look and effect, plan to keep it up and continue to look refreshed and rejuvenated.

Also, in their studies they used multiple syringes in each side, so patients noticed the effects for longer periods.
Depends upon your face
The ideal way to receive the fillers, Radiesse or Volume, is to time another procedure prior there wearing off. This will maintain or enhance your appearance.
