Answering your questions about Voluma treatment: Cost, reviews, and more
Dr. Jeanine Downie of image Dermatology® in Montclair NJ is nationally known for excellence in anti-aging and skincare treatment. We offer a wide variety of treatment options, because every patient is different, and because aging is a multi-faceted process. In order to turn back the clock and achieve a truly natural looking result, it takes a customized treatment plan, usually including various products and procedures.
Voluma dermal filler is often recommended for patients seeking a long-lasting lift. It is FDA approved for use in the cheeks, and it is currently undergoing clinical trials to earn approval for a new indication, which is Voluma chin. Dr. Downie has been selected as one of the Voluma chin clinical trial investigators, due to her extensive experience and expertise with this product. Voluma is also used in the temples and lips with excellent results.
If you are considering this treatment, you may wonder about the cost, what kind of reviews it gets, how long it lasts, and similar concerns. Below we answer some of the commonly asked questions about Voluma treatment.
The cost of treatment
If you are comparing the cost per syringe, you will find that Voluma is comparable to some products, and a little higher than others. However, if you are comparing cost per month of results, you might be surprised to find Voluma as one of the more economical formulas. That is because this durable, long-lived filler delivers reliable volume in deep-injection areas, with results that last up to 18 months.
For an exact price quote, you will need to come in for a consultation. Because every patient has a unique treatment plan, it is not possible to set a standard price applicable to everyone. The factors that affect cost include:
- Amount of product – The number of syringes of dermal filler that you need will be determined by the amount of volume loss you’ve experienced, and the degree of fulness you wish to achieve.
- Types of fillers – Different formulas are ideal for different areas of the face. Because pricing is slightly different for each product, we will need to determine how much of which fillers you need before providing a quote.
- Adjunct procedures – If you wish to correct multiple problems, then dermal fillers may not be the only factor in treatment cost. For example, if you want to plump up hollow cheeks, remove acne scars, and wipe away crow’s feet, your complete treatment plan might include dermal fillers, Botox, and laser resurfacing.

Voluma has people talking
Patients often ask to see before and after pictures or testimonials from Voluma patients. They want to see if it looks natural, and find out if it really lasts that long. After all, who is better qualified to judge a product than those who have tried it in real life?
The response to Voluma treatment has been overwhelmingly positive. The procedure has an 85 percent “Worth it” rating at Real Self, and it receives rave reviews from patients here at image Dermatology®. Additionally, patients in a clinical trial were surveyed at six months post-treatment and reported looking up to five years younger than they did before Voluma.
Perhaps the best testimonial of all is the fact that Dr. Downie, who has more than 20 years of experience performing dermal filler treatment, uses Voluma to maintain her own youthful appearance.
If you want to see for yourself what this treatment can accomplish, check out the main Voluma page on this website. We have included some “before and after” photos depicting actual patients. You will notice that Voluma injections in the cheek area actually improve the appearance of the entire face. Deflation in the upper face causes tissue to drop, creating a loose saggy appearance in the lower face. Replacing lost volume lifts tissue back to it’s natural position.
Evaluating your treatment options
We are strong advocates of patient education. Dr. Downie and her team are more than happy to answer your questions and discuss any concerns that you have. We also encourage patients to learn about various products and treatment options. However, please remember that the most important factor when choosing an anti-aging treatment is not the price tag, the popularity of a product, the number of celebrity endorsements it receives, or even the convenient of the process.
The number one factor that you should consider is what will best meet your specific needs, what your body responds to, and what can achieve the look that you desire. Take the first step towards discovering your own personal best anti-aging solution. Call image Dermatology® at (973) 509-6900 and schedule a cosmetic consultation today.
