Thank you for your question in regards to Voluma. It is common to have residual swelling after filler injections. It is best to wait two weeks for swelling and bruising to subside to see total correction. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
The volume effect from the Voluma in combination can change your smile. It is usually temporary. Continue to discuss these concerns with your injector.
I would expect your smile to return to normal.
Voluma is one of my favorite injections but technique is very important. It is possible that the product was injected too low and created this effect or it may be swelling. I would wait another week to assess the results. Best, Dr. Green

You're likely suffering from swelling at this point. I would give it 2 weeks from the date of injection to allow the majority of the swelling to settle before you come to any decisions.
Best of luck !

Hello Cathy M,
I would let the swelling go down, give it one more week. If you are still unhappy your provider can dissolve the product with Hyaluronidase. Best to you, Dr Faraz
You could have some swelling still from the Voluma. I would give it another week to make sure and then follow up with your injector.
Thank you for our question. Dynamic photos would really help us here to see the degree of change you are experiencing, It is certainly not uncommon to have swelling after treatment that can effect your smile.The products are put often placed deep and sometimes into the muscle which can result in swelling and or bruising which might alter your smile. If after 7 to 10 days you still feel things are off I would return to you doctor to be examined and the result tweaked and balance things out a bit. There is s high likely hood all will settle down and you won't require rather treatment. Be sure to always use a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist
Best of Luck

I suggest if you are unhappy after 2 weeks reverse the filler and start venus legacy treatments. Best, Dr. Emer.
Deformed smile after Voluma
Thank you for your question. Without photographs or an in-person examination it is difficult to make definite recommendations but what you are likely experiencing is swelling from Voluma's placement. I know waiting is difficult but allow your results time to mature over the next week and if you see little improvement voice your concerns to your injector who can dissolve the filler to restore you to your previous appearance.
Voluma injections in the cheeks
Swelling after the procedure is common and will settle down. I agree with the statement that you should wait at least one to two weeks before deciding on whether you like it. I do you a cannula to injection and most of my clients will have swelling 24 to 48 hours. Product placement is also important. It would help to see before and after pictures to see exactly what you are talking about. One of the benefits of hyaluronic acid filler injections is that it can be dissolved with Vitrase or Hylenex. But, be patient and you may end up liking the results.
