Will my Juvederm Voluma Improve?
- Asked by Me9 in London

Y'day I had Voluma injected with a Canula into my cheeks to enhance the cheek bones and create a lift. Apart from the fact that the area is extremely sore, and warm to the touch/feel, the result is quite uneven and "bumpy" you can clearly see where the filler ends without smooth transition. I want to know whether this is normal for the filler to be bumpy at first (perhaps it's self levelling, or there might be some scar tissue created because of the cannulae used?) How long b4 it improves? Tnx
Will Juvederm Voluma Improve?
Since it has only been 1 day, I'm fairly certain you will see significant improvement in the next week or so. Uneven swelling, and bruising can be normal but should improve in time. Avoid massaging while still bruised and swollen, but you should plan to return to your provider for recheck and adjustments when the swelling has resolved. Normally you should not form scar tissue from the cannula technique if done correctly. Deep placement in the tissue typically results in smoother results. Lastly, remember that because Voluma is an HA it is temporary and can always be dissolved if necessary.
Canulas and fillers
It is normal to swell after any filler and you should expect it to last anywhere from 7-10 days. Technically speaking using canulas, especially for much deeper fillers, shouldn't produce as much surface bruising or swelling, but it can produce swelling and bruising under the skin, which is why you feel the lumps and bumps. I'd wait at least the 7-10 days to see how the filler looks after any subsequent swelling has diminished. Especially since it's your first treatment with a canula! Then make an appointment with your injector for a follow-up if you have any concerns.
Juvaderm lumps and bumps
no one can answer your question without knowing how long ago you were injected, how much was injected, and how it was injected. Lumps and bumps is fairly normal for the first few days becuase of swelling, but it can also mean that it was injected poorly and the lumps and bumps will be there for the entire duration of the material. You should contact your injector and see them.
It is possible that you are feeling sore and bumpy because you have some bruising under the skin. If injection was very deep, you might not even see visible bruise at surface. This will take some time to go down and you might become more smooth when resolves. However, if you feel very warm and sore you should see your doctor about this. The filler itself is not "self leveling".
