I had 0.2ml Volume injected in my deep malar fat pad at beg March. It still feels like a big lump and a bit tender. There's more on one side of my face than the other. I don't want to mess about with dissolving it as I feel it's best to leave it to time. How long is this likely to last before it wears off?
0.2 ml is not a large amount. Unless it is a visible lump it may be better to leave it alone. Juvederm Voluma can last up to 2 years. If it continues to bother you, it can be dissolved away with Hylenex or Vitrase which is an enzyme which starts dissolving the product immediately
Juvederm can last more than a year depending on the location of the injection and the amount of filler placed. If there is a discrete lump you would be best advised to dissolve it with Vitrase. Please see an expert for these long lasting fillers. Best, Dr. Green
