Thank you for your question Nadine. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Voluma is a
filler used to enhance the appearance of the face. With any filler there is swelling that occurs for up to two weeks. Often times this appears desirable. The final result is seen approximately two weeks after the treatment once the swelling has subsided. We have patients return at this time to take after photographs and assess the results. At that time more filler can be added if desired. Please consult with a doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
Voluma disappeared after 3 weeks?
Thank you for your very important question. Voluma typically lasts for up to two years. It is uncommon that you only noticed results for three weeks. I recommend you follow up with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for an assessment.
Voluma injections not lasting...
I am sorry for your disappointment! I agree with advice below, that you should be seen for an in-office consult as soon as you can get in with the doctor who performed these injections, so that this can be documented and assessed.
In some cases, people who lead lifestyles of high intensity workouts tend to metabolize fillers at a higher rate the less active individual. This can require more injections than other patients. Make sure you bring this up your concerns at your next appointment.

I am so sorry for your experience but this is very unusual. I would return to your treating physician for examination. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Final Result After Voluma
Thank you for your question and sorry that you are having some concerns about your postprocedure appearance. The final result after Voluma injection is typically seen 2 weeks postprocedure. Sometimes it can take up to a month for things to fully settle. Results typically last for up to 2 years. What you are describing is very unusual. I would advise you to contact your doctor for an in-person examination in order to fully evaluate your concerns and to determine the best course of action. Best wishes!
