Why are my cheeks hot and red after Voluma injection today? (photos)

Post op redness
I would definitely suggest that you make an appointment to see your surgeon to have this looked at in person. You may be having an allergic reaction to the topical anesthetic?
Alert your injector
Likely could be from the topical anesthetic.
A phone call to your doc will help to see if an anesthetic was applied to these areas.

I would urge you to contact the doctor who performed your injections, or see a board certified dermatologist for evaluation. If you had numbing cream applied prior to the injections you may have had a reaction to that. It's difficult to say for sure what is going on without seeing you in person.

If this is how you would describe your skin, this redness may be secondary to the stimulation during needle injection. Be sure to contact the office where you received your injections for further guidance and/or evaluation. Good luck!
