Why is treatment with modelling fillers such as Voluma, nearly 100% more expensive as with other fillers?
Doctor Answers 7
I would suggest you discuss your concern regarding your prior treatment with a dermatologist that has experience with Voluma. We do use it with other fillers used in different areas. We do not use under eyes so your concerns should be checked out by a doctor.
Cost is related to manufacturer costs of product.

Length of treatment

Voluma is a unique product used to give a more lifted appearance to the mid face. It is also unique in that it has been proven to last up to two years.
When deciding on a filler, it is best to consider what you are hoping to achieve from treatment. One particular filler is not best for everyone and it's not uncommon to use more than one type of filler on a patient to achieve the desired outcomes.
Voluma lasts much longer than standard fillers so it is well worth this.
The Cost of Voluma
In our practice, we charge and our patients pay for their naturally beautiful rejuvenated result; our patients do not pay by the syringe used. Volift and Volbella are not FDA approved for use in the US, therefore we cannot compare to Voluma. Voluma is more expensive than other fillers because of it's unique lifting property as well as it's long lasting (up to 2 years) effect. Good luck and be well.
Cost of Voluma
Voluma is definitely the most expensive filler I carry in my practice and I think cost has been a disincentive for some of my patients.
Voluma is currently the only filler that has been studied and proved to last longer than 2 years. It is a Juvaderm product that has been marketed for cheek lifts.
Volift and volbella are juvaderm products also. They are made a little bit differently. The cross linking of the molecules is less than in Voluma, so they can be used more superficially (closer to the skin) but they also last less.
The products are a little different and because it lasts longer, voluma is currently more expensive.
Hope this helps!
