How bad do you bruise after having Voluma??

Bruising & Voluma
The amount of bruising is really going to depend on the individual patient and how your body heals. Obviously, if you are on blood thinners, it will increase your bruising. Icing the area helps with both the bruising and swelling.

Bruising after filler
Everyone is different, so difficult to predict. You can also use arnica, ice to minimize risk of bruising. Also, lasers can be used to help bruises resolve more quickly. To maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome, I recommend that you only get treated by a well-trained and experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
Hope this opinion is helpful to you. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.

How bad do you bruise after having Voluma?
There is virtually no recovery time so you will be able to return to your normal schedule. However, I advise my patients to avoid activities that cause facial flushing; this includes exercising, saunas, alcohol consumption, heat application, etc. until swelling resolves.
Voluma is proven to last up to two years. However, if you want to maintain your results, it will be beneficial to follow up with your injecting physician around 18 months for an exam and possible injection. I have been very impressed with the longevity of Voluma.
Voluma and Bruising
Like all fillers including Voluma you can have bruising. I always recommend planning on fillers by stopping all medications and vitamins that cause bruising at least 10 days before. Voluma is a deeper filler and less likely than some others to bruise. If bruises occur you can take Arnica or laser the area with the V-Beam. Best, Dr. Green

Bruising and logeivity after voluma
In terms of longeivity, Voluma received the FDA indication for 2 years. That does not mean that you get the injection and return two years later. In the study, patients got on average 6 syringes of product to achieve their optimal result and were able to get a touch up (additional filler). Most patients not involved in a study get their optimal more gradually and maintain it by returning for additional filler (though generally less than needed at the outset) at 4-9 months. If you reach your optimal with only 2 syringes of product and your weight remains stable, then I would anticipate you could return to your physician for additional in 9 - 12 months. The key is to return before the results are gone so you achieve and maintain your new normal.
I hope this answer was helpful. Best wishes.
