Does Voluma really last two years on cheeks? Are you able to achieve a softer look in the submalar area with one syringe each?
Doctor Answers 18
The studies performed prior to FDA approval showed a two-year longevity, but at the Cosmetic Boot camp for advanced injectors in Aspen last month, many physicians involved in the stuides, who have therefore had the opportunity to follow patients for more than two years, felt that it can last even longer than that and were seeing correction even at three years.
In my experience, when placed carefully one syringe is sufficient for a significant correction. We often inject more than one type of filler at a session because different fillers are appropriate for different indications.
Voluma duration is not 2 years
Voluma adds volume to submalar area; Consider sculptra
For pronounced submalar hollows in thin faces, I often use sculptra. Sculptra's effect is a softer, more gradual, lifting effect.
There are studies to show that voluma should last 2 years. The real question is how long before you will desire a touchup. That really depends on how quickly you are aging. The amount of time it takes before a 25 year old needs a touchup is much longer than the amount of time before a 60 year old needs a touchup.
If you go to an experienced injector, s/he will be able to explain what products will be the best for your particular situation.

Voluma for Cheeks and Effectiveness Duration
is a good filler option if you need to add up some volume or lift the lateral
and midsection of your cheek. Due to the formulation technology unique to
Voluma, it can help provide greater lift as compared to other kinds of fillers.
Aside from providing better lift, it also gives a very natural appearance as
soon as the full effect kicks in. Voluma also feels a lot firmer immediately
after the injection treatment. This is also true for the succeeding days.
As for the effectiveness duration, studies have been made even before the FDA approved it. These studies have shown that Voluma has a longevity lasting for a couple of years.
In terms of amount, carefully injecting a 1cc syringe will be enough to provide noteworthy correction in one area, for instance in one cheek. However, you may also take note that a variety of fillers may be used per session to correct different issues in different locations. This is because a specific filler is more effective in correcting a specific location compared to others or other fillers cannot be injected in the area. To know more about what should be used and how much, you should undergo thorough physical exam and assessment. Be sure to look for a board certified plastic surgeon to guarantee that you are working with only the best. This will also minimize possible after effects. Hope this helps you out!

Voluma last two years
Voluma can last "up to" two years in the cheeks with full correction.
Fat grafting can have long term effects that are not evident in the first few months, so I recommend considering waiting at least 6 to 9 months before adding any Voluma to the same areas. Speak with the surgeon that did your fat grafting for advice.
