How much does Voluma cost

Thank you for your question. Voluma prices vary based on geographical location and the experience of the injector. As Voluma is one of the newer HA fillers (hyaluronic acid), be sure to do your research on your injector.  A more viscous gel than Juvederm, Voluma is currently indicated to help restore volume in a patient's mid-face and lift the surrounding tissues, adding two nice effects WITHOUT making ones face look wide or "chubby."  As the gel is thick, reports have effects lasting for over two years for patients.  Prices in Atlanta vary, from approximately 850 to 1200/syringe with discounts off either the first or second syringes based on the plastic surgery or dermatology office.  As always find a physician with whom you communicate well, and can voice your desired expectations to have the best result.

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.

How Much Does Voluma Cost?

Hi,
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.

Warmly,
Dr. Liu

Voluma cost

As people age, the cheek area loses volume, making the cheeks flatten out and the skin droop and sag. Voluma is a hyaluronic acid filler that is approved to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. It instantly provides smooth, natural-looking results that last up to two years with optimal correction. Most of my patients have been very happy with their results using Voluma, even given the higher cost for this filler.  The average cost for Voluma will range from about $700 -$1000 per syringe.

How much does Voluma cost?

The short answer is on average $750.00 to $1,000 and this depends greatly on where you are and how many syringes are used (often there is a multiple syringe discount). That being said, don't try to price shop for any filler or surgical treatment. Voluma injections, in particular, are very "technical" and if injected in the correct place and with the correct technique powerful correction can be obtained with small volumes of product.
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

Each practice will charge a slightly different price for Voluma. You will see ranges from $700 -1,200. We charge $999 per 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.

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.

Voluma Cost

Voluma costs around $800-$1,200 per syringe. The recommended number of syringes varies. Some patients need only 1 syringe, but some patients can need as many as 4 syringes. Your injector can help you determine how many syringes you will need to achieve your desired result. Voluma has been shown to last about 2 years and it works well to replenish volume loss and add contour to the cheek area. Thus, although the treatment is not inexpensive, it can be a very worthwhile investment.

We currently charge $799 a syringe for Voluma at our offices in NYC and Columbus OH and we post all of our prices online for the sake of transparency and good customer service :-) If the practice you choose participates in Brilliant Distinctions (a free rewards program sponsored by the makers of Voluma that's open to the top practices) you can save a bit and accumulate points.
