Good afternoon. In theory, any damage done to your skin can potentially cuase a psoriasis flare. However, I have never encountered a patient having their psoriasis flare after receiving Voluma injections.
It is very rare for dermal filler injections such as Voluma to cause a psoriasis flare-up.
While trauma to the skin of any kind can potentially cause a psoriasis flare-up, it is very rare for dermal filler injections such as Voluma to cause one due to the small size of the needle or cannula used. I have never seen it happen personally in practice. Nonetheless, I advise you to let your board-certified dermatologist know about your condition and concerns before having Voluma injections done so that they can help to ensure that you will get great results with minimal risk of a flare-up.
Voluma for Facial Volume and Psoriasis
Voluma is a fabulous product for injecting the mid-face with exceptional results. It should not cause your psoriasis to flare at all. Best, Dr. Green
Voluma Cannot Cause Psoriasis Flare
Voluma itself cannot cause a psoriasis flare, however any degree of trauma has the ability to start psoriasis at the injection site, although I have never seen this in my 9 year career. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question. Theoretically any damage to the skin could flare psoriasis, that being said I have never seen a patient flare from injectables and believe you will be fine. Good luck!! Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
Hi and thanks. I can't think of a reason why Voluma injections would cause a flare up of psoriasis - of course, no one can guarantee you this. I've injected HA filler in hundreds of people with psoriasis and no one has ever complained of a flare aftwerwards. Good luck.
Voluma Injection -- Any Psoriasis Flare Risk?
While any trauma to the skin can theoretically flare a localized #psoriasis plaque, it is extremely unusual with the small needle used with #Voluma or any of the other #hyaluronicacid fillers (#Juvederm, #Volift, #Vobella, #Restylane, #RestylaneLyft, #RestylaneSilk, or #Belotero). In our busy dermatology practice, we have not seen any psoriasis flare in the last 10,000 patients injected with fillers.
Best of luck,

Voluma hasn't been associated with flare ups of psoriasis
If you have psoriasis, this shouldn't be flared up by Voluma injections. Interestingly, there is some research on neurotoxins (like Botox), which are used to relax wrinkles and psoriasis. It appears that Botox and other neurotoxins can improve psoriasis if injected into the areas.
But to answer your question, Voluma should be fine with your psoriasis. Good luck!
