I had vobella in the tear area 1 wk ago. One eye is itchy with dry skin in the tear area. I have some swelling in the same eye.

Please note the slight itchiness and dryness is not in the actusl eye, but below the eye on the skin. The other eye is completely fine.

Itchy skin following Volbella

It isn't uncommon for patients to experience itchy skin following any injectables, including Volbella. This should resolve as the swelling dissipates which can take about 2 weeks. In the meantime, apply a little eye cream. This should help with the irritation.

Thank you for sharing your question.  Volbella, like other fillers, will create a small amount of swelling in a patient's tissues as a result of the injections and the material absorbing surrounding water.  This can cause some itchy, dry skin.  I would recommend using an undereye cream while allowing your results to mature over the next 1-2 weeks.  Your symptoms should gradually resolve.  Hang in there!

Volbella Under Eyes

Volbella is a great product from Allergan and due to the Vycross technology is perfect for the lips and other areas.  You can definitely have some bruising or irritation with any filler and I suggest you return to your treating physician for advice.  Best, Dr. Green

Volbella for under the eyes

Volbella is an excellent JUVEDERM line for under the eyes. You may have some mild skin irritation. I suggest seeing your injector as he/she can easily fit it up. Had to give exact diagnosis without a close clinical examination. All the best, Dr Davin Lim.

Thank you for your question ioannis. Volbella is a filler that can be used to enhance the face. After any injection there is the possibility of redness, swelling, itching, and dryness. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
