Swelling and Bruising After Voluma
Bruising can unfortunately occur with any filler. Injection technique can lower the likelihood of a bruise, but it is not possible for an experienced injector to not bruise any patients. Management of a bruise may require use of antibruising gel pads, herbal medications such as Arnica, and use of lasers to expedite the bruising.
Swelling after Voluma can be a result of the following factors
-Deep bruise- Not all bruises are at the surface and this localized swelling can take weeks to dissipate
-Injection technique- Injections of the product can create depositions which can create lumps if not properly transitioned. Since Voluma is not hydrophilic (does not tend to absorb water), Voluma tends to be a what you see is what you get type of filler.
Consult your treating physician for the best course of action.

Bruising Post Voluma Injection
Sorry about your swelling and bruising. These after effects from Voluma treatment are actually common and normal. Usually these after effects show up hours after the treatment. They can subside within 24 to 48 hours the fastest or 5 to 6 days the longest. Other doctors even suggest waiting up to a couple of weeks before going for a follow up. It is good that you are icing your bruise and swelling, but make sure to do so every 3 hours when you are awake. Also, make sure to elevate your head when you are sleeping to allow for the fluid to go down and not contribute to the swelling. If you are still bothered by this, you can schedule an appointment with your doctor and ask if he or she can check the swelling and bruises. You can confirm if the swelling is caused by a displaced Voluma. As for going to work, you can possibly cover it up with cosmetics, but make sure to pat really gently. You can also leave it be and just say that you had been bitten by an insect or that you had an allergic reaction.
Swelling and Bruising Depends On The Person
The swelling is typically gone within 24-48 hours. If you experience bruising, it typically will be gone in approximately 5-7 days. We recommend applying makeup to conceal the treated area.
