I'm sorry, it sounds like you are going through a frustrating experience. I have managed a few cases where Voluma results in swelling and even intermittent, recurrent infection. This kind of thing might be happening with you. It is not easy to get the filler to dissolve in these cases. My suggestion would be to go to the most experienced Voluma injector you can find and see what they can do. Treatment may involve antibiotics and high doses of enzyme - much higher doses than usually employed to dissolve these kinds of fillers. Good luck and I'm happy to chat with you in detail if you'd like to call for advice.
Hope that helps
Voluma Reversal-- Hyaluronidase and Venus Legacy
It takes a number of treatments to reverse voluma, as this type of cross linking is very tight and needs more hyaluronidase than other fillers. It often takes RF treatment to help improve the results. An MRI or CT scan will not show Voluma. Please consult with an expert if you do not feel confident with your current physician. Best, Dr. Emer
An MRI or other scans will not show where the product is. It sounds as if you may be allergic to Voluma. I suggest you contact Allergan and they will help you. Best, Dr. Green
MRI or CT to identify Voluma?
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your difficulties with dissolving Voluma. Unfortunately as Voluma becomes incorporated into your body's tissues it can not be identified by MRI or ultrasound. Knowledge of the injection pattern and dosing of the hyaluronidase is the key to appropriate dissolution but as you have already had numerous treatments it may be best to allow your tissues time to heal from the injections and resultant swelling. Hang in there!
