I love Voluma and inject it daily in my office. However, the side effect that you are describing is not normal and I would definitely return to your treating physician for examination and treatment. Please keep us posted. Best, Dr. Green
I had Juvederm Voluma 5 wks ago-I am experiencing hardness & swelling but I was fine right after!

I had Juvederm Voluma 5 wks ago, still hardness & welling? = bruise? #fb #voluma #drmesa
When swelling and harness in the area treated with voluma last for more that 2 weeks it could be secondary to underlying bruising (blood accumulation in the deep tissues at the site of the voluma injection). This sometimes is evident with delayed discoloration of the skin ( usually yellow, green or brow discoloration typical of buses).
Patients with prolonged swelling and hardness after voluma treatment should be evaluated by their primary licensed cosmetic core practitioner to determine the safest management if necessary.
