Voluma longevity varies, but with one syringe it should not last longer than a year.

The manufacturer's claim that Voluma can last up to 2 years. That was based on a study where patients received on average 5 syringes, so if you only received one syringe you may see a shorter longevity. If you are unhappy with the appearance you can certainly have the areas injected with Vitrase that will dissolve the product very quickly. You might need more than one injection, and you might experience some bruising or swelling, but you can see a change by the next day or so. If photos were taken before your injection was done I would recommend returning for follow-ups so you can look at the before and after photos with your injector. While they may or may not agree with your impression, they will certainly learn something. We all want patients to be happy.
I'm sorry that you are unhappy with your treatment. Voluma lasts approximately two years, with the effect gradually fading over that time. If you wish to do so, there is a chemical that can be injected that will dissolve the product.

Voluma Longevity Varies by Patient
The longevity of Voluma is going to vary from patient to patient. However, since you only had 1 vial, I don't think that your results will last longer than a year. If you really hate it, you could have the Voluma dissolved. Or you could wait it out. Your call.
