Discoloration and hyperpigmentation of the face can be reduced with Melarase AM and PM creams
Discoloration and hyperpigmentation of the face can be reduced with Melarase AM and PM creams. They are related to not using a cannula technique (perhaps).
Melarase creams and q switch laser for Voluma facial staining
Discoloration and hemosiderin staining may be improved with a combination of Q switch laser and Melarase creams.
Thank you for your question and picture.
Looks to me that the bluish color is a result of bruising. It does not appear to be from a tyndall effect.
Sometimes bruising can last up to 2 weeks. Do you take vitamin supplements, fish oil, or other herbal supplements? If so, bruising can be slightly worse after injectable procedures.
I hope this helps.

Voluma is a fabulous injection for the mid face. The line appears to be bruising or hemosiderin from the injection itself. I suggest you take Arnica to see if it goes away faster. This side effect should go away with time. I suggest you consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Voluma and facial injections for the best cosmetic results.
Thank you for your question. The line on your face does not appear to be the Tyndall effect. The hyperpigmentation could be a small bruise or hemosiderin stain. Eventually the pigment should resolve. It is unlikely that dissolving the product will make any change.
All the best,
That doesn't appear to be the Tyndall effect as that is more bluish in color and looks different. Voluma also really doesn't have as much of an ability to cause a Tyndall effect as often. It looks more like a hemosiderin stain which is cause by iron in the blood. What could have happened is that a vessel was hit during injection and as the needle or cannula was pulled out, the stain was moved across forming a line. It looks to me like it will lighten with a bit of time, and I wouldn't suggest removing the filler because honestly, the line could still remain as it's healing. I think you just need time. And you could have some light Laser Genesis to the area to speed up the breakdown and absorption of the blood too. That can help speed things along.
