Is 2 tubes of Voluma really less than half a teaspoon? = Yes, actually less than 1/2 teaspoon #voluma
Using conversion tables , 2 cc of volume = 0.4 teaspoons which is just a little bit less than 1/2 teaspoon.

2 ccs equals 0.4 of a teaspoon, is that going to make a difference on my face...
However, if Voluma is injected skillfully by a Board Certified plastic surgeon with experience and knowledge in the application of Voluma, this 2 ccs can give you excellent results with visible improvement in the facial area you want treated.
Obviously, without an in person exam, no RealSelf online plastic surgery expert can give you an idea how many ccs you will need to improve the specific facial area you are concerned about. I can, however, tell you that I have experienced excellent results using Voluma because it is both malleable and produces long lasting benefits.
With respect to your concern about the cost of Voluma, keep in mind that because of the long lasting results using Voluma vis-a-vis other facial injectable products, this should definitely be factored into your decision.
Voluma/filler volume per syringe
Voluma is 1cc (ml) per syringe
Each vial of Voluma is 1 ml and when we speak of a teaspoon, we usually equate that with 5 ml. So, 2 vials would be 2ml. It is not cheap, but it is probably the best product on the market for cheek and temple augmentation. Good luck.
