Westlake Village CA center discusses cost and benefits of low-risk, high-reward Juvederm injections
There are many benefits to the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers, which includes Voluma (for plumper cheeks), Vollure (for nasolabial folds) and Volbella (for a poutier mouth); to start, these products are formulated from Hyaluronic Acid. HA is produced by your body naturally. So, the product is biocompatible and safe. Even with these and other benefits, Daphne I. Panagotacos, M.D. Skin Care Centre understands that it’s important to weigh the cost and benefits of Juvéderm injections in Westlake Village CA at our state-0f-the-art clinic.
A number of factors can influence the total cost of treatment with Juvéderm Voluma or its “sister” products. We will discuss considerations with you during your consultation. So, there is no “sticker shock.” Some of these considerations include:
- The number of areas to be treated
- The size of the treatment area; for instance, cheek or “mid-face” injections of Voluma can cost more than “filling in” the folds around your mouth or volumizing your lips, as the cheeks cover a larger surface area
- How much product is injected – Unlike with neuromodulators such as Botox, which is priced per unit, Juvéderm fillers are generally priced per syringe. The number of syringes depends at least partly on the results you’d like to see.
- Additional treatments that are required for “touch-ups” or to maintain your look
In addition to the safety of HA-based fillers, Juvéderm Voluma is known to be a particularly long-lasting product. Our patients have enjoyed a boost to the apples of their cheeks for up to two years. Many fillers on the market may only retain results for around six months, until additional maintenance injections are needed. Additionally, Voluma can be formulated with lidocaine for added comfort (look for the “XC”). A single treatment session produces the results you want, without the risks of surgery, and without the multiple sessions required of less powerful, nonsurgical procedures.
As with other investments in life, it’s important to not buy on price alone. The experience and skill of the injector is paramount to the success of your procedure and outcomes. In other words, cheap can become costly extremely quickly when too much filler is injected or the filler is injected into the wrong place.
