I didn’t see results with Voluma???

i had Voluma injections a month ago and there are no visible results whatsoever. The doctor says after the next round of 1800 dollars worth of injections, I should see some difference. What do you think?

I think this really depends on your age and the amount of deep volume loss you have.  Since Voluma is really meant to replace deep volume loss, you need to think of it more like Sculptra.  A good general rule of thumb is about 1 syringe per decade, so if you are …..say 44….. you might need to plan on 4 syringes for the base and then approximately half that per year for maintenance.    Funny how their marketing never makes that really clear!!!   True the product lasts about 2 years, but who wants their face going from full to zero.  You need to fill the gas tank up at about 1/2 down!   Apologies for the car analogy!    Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
