How Much Does Voluma Cost? Buyer Beware!
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.
Voluma - cost depends on a number of factors
1) how many syringes you need (can vary from 1 syringe to 6 syringes)
2) the experience of the injector
3) the location (think NYC versus a small town)
Even more important than the product (eg Voluma versus Restylane Lyft) is the skill of the injector. Realize that injecting is an art, and it requires a good eye, a substantial knowledge base, an ability to communicate, and a trained hand. A good injector will be able to evaluate your face, and let you know what procedures will work the best to enhance your natural features. A good injector will also be able to take you through any complications.
I encourage you to consider paying a premium for an experienced injector, just as you are willing to pay a premium for a really good haircut.

The cost of Voluma is double any other HA filler but the FDA duration is 2 years! The cost varies based on where in the country you are in and who is the injector. We love to use micro-cannulas for most Voluma injections because it leaves no bruising. It technically takes more time but the result is so beautiful. In our practice, we don't charge any extra for using micro-cannulas. We also give discounts for more than one syringe of Voluma.
Prices vary, but we charge $900 per 1 ml syringe at our practice

Be sure to consult with an experienced injector to get the biggest effect for your money. A good injector chooses filler as an artist a brush. Each filler is chosen to achieve a particular effect and many are used together to achieve a beautiful AND NATURAL result. Best wishes.
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.
