I had Juvederm Voluma injected in the eye troughs a week ago and had extreme pain and numbness. Is this normal?

Numbness after Voluma injection
- Your description suggests that the Voluma was injected into or near the infra-orbital nerve and near the artery and vein.
- Whether the nerve will recover is hard to predict - probably.
- It may take months.
- When having any injection in or near the eyes, I believe it is imperative you are treated only by a physician and one with experience and training in the eye -- these specialists include Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, Ophthalmologists and Facial Plastic Surgeons. Best wishes.

Pain and numbness after Voluma in tear trough
When i have seen patients who have these symptoms after injections elsewhere, the severe pain resolved overnight but tingling persisted for a week or more. I hope this will be your experieince as well. But a small amount of hyaluronidase at the site where the Voluma is pressing on the nerve should provide quick relief, and may be advisable if the pain and some of the numbness do not resolve within hours after onset.
