Cost of Voluma

Voluma is more expensive that products like Juvederm because Voluma is a longer lasting product; it can last up to 2 years. Voluma is FDA approve to treat midface volume loss and is the only filler proven to last up to 2 years. For the appropriate candidate, Voluma is an amazing treatment. I recommend consulting with a board certified plastic surgeon who has a lot of experience injecting Voluma to see if you are a candidate. Good luck!

Uverderm Voluma XC, price is higher, why? Longer lasting? Is it good for nostril folds, cheek contouring?

Juvaderm is FDA approved for upper cheek use only. For the nasal labia folds, a hyaluronic acid type of filler is recommended. Please get a in-office consultation with a physician to see what would work best for you.

Uverderm Voluma XC, price is higher, why? = because it is new and last 2 years #voluma #volumaprice #price

Voluma is one of the newest soft tissue filler approved by the FDA in the US market for mid face qgummentation. Compared with traditional Juvederm ( "little brother"), Voluma last  up to 2 years. 
Since Voluma duration of results is the longest of the US market, therefore its price is higher. To have the same duration of mid face augmentation with Juvederm for 2 years, the patients should have to be infected juvederm annually two years in the row. Per syringe, Volum's price is higher, but per duration ( 2 years) it is cheaper.

Voluma cost

The cost for Voluma is higher because the product has been shown to last up to 2 years.  It is primarily used to help contour the cheek area, but can be used in other areas depending on your particular situation and treatment goals.  I would recommend a consult with an injector for a personalized plan.

Voluma

Voluma costs are higher because it lasts 2 years; Other fillers such as juvederm will last 9-12 months. Voluma is used primarily for the mid face to help with cheek volume and lifting. I prefer to use a filler such as juvederm around the nostril fold (nasolabial fold). Best, Anita Arora Gill MD

Juverderm Voluma XC, price is higher, why? Longer lasting? Is it good for nostril folds, cheek contouring?

Thank you for your excellent question.  Voluma does cost more as reports have its effects lasting up to two years in certain patients.  It is currently recommended for use in the mid-face of patients to help with cheek contouring, lifting, and augmentation, but off-label uses do exist.  In general a thinner gel, such as juvederm ultra is a better filler for the nostril folds.  Hope this helps
