Volbella showing through the skin
I recommend that you review your concerns with the doctor who did the injections.
I hope that helps and best regards, Dr. Sapijaszko.

Thank you for your clinical post and unusual question. In general, the hyaluronic acid sugar gels of which Juvederm Volbella is one do not show white through the skin. If epinephrine was used to provide additional skin anesthesia inside additional local anesthesia some vasoconstriction and whiteness might be expect to occur. However, after several hours any whiteness should dissipate and the Volbella should not show white through the skin and main fat if injected superficially in thin areas of the skin may actually show blue as you suggested.
As this is an unusual post-operative scenario, I would highly recommend you see your injection physician to ensure that there’s no untoward event or complication that needs to be treated.
I’m sure you’ll get an excellent result, but be diligent and follow-up to ensure that your concerns are being addressed properly.
I hope this information has been of some assistance and best of luck.
