Voluma and products dissipating
If you could post before and after photos it would be easier to assess what happened. I would look into Sculptra as a better alternative after you had three syringes with no results. Sculptra can give long lasting results with more than two years of longevity. Please consult an experienced board certified dermatologist for the best cometic results. Best, Dr. Green
Voluma duration of effect
Voluma is an excellent alternative to currently used fillers. We use it for restoring mid face volume in the cheek that had previously been difficult to enhance. We have seen great results lasting 12 months and more.
I would suggest you discuss your concern regarding your prior treatment with a dermatologist that has experience with Voluma.
Thank you for your question. Before and after photos would be helpful to assess your concerns. I would recommend that you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to help you with your concerns.
Voluma and Results
Sometimes HA type fillers can go away faster than anticipated. With that said, if you did not get to optimal correction the first treatment (which may be multiple syringes) the results may not be as evident shortly after treatment. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question. Properly placed Voluma should last at least 18 months and more often than not closer to 24 months. Please follow up with your Board Certified Dermatologist to review your treatment and results, they should be able to give you a better opinion and explanation than your aesthetician including comparing pre/post photos. Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
In phase III trials and in my experience, properly placed Voluma lasts between 1.5 to 2 years. The clinical improvement (your appearance) is dependent on the amount of volume loss you initially had as well as the injection technique. I recommend following up with your board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to take photos to compare with your pre-injection photos.
Best of luck,
