It's been 8 weeks since my Juvederm Voluma and there is no sign of anything. Can I get facial fillers from another physician?

No results after filler

Effect is based on placement
I would recommend you discuss your issue with a board certified dermatologist.
No result from 4 syringes of Voluma
Four syringes of Voluma is a lot. You should have a visible effect - immediately.
You do not wait to see the result.
Of course you can see another physician to do your fillers but it would be good to know first what happened to you.
Possible explanations -
- You had Sculptra, not Voluma. Sculptra is not a true filler. it is supposed to stimulate collagen production during the 6 months after injection. It does not always work
- You have results but expected more - get a copy of your records so you know what was injected and sit down with your doctor to review your before/after photos.
- You have no results because you were not injected with filler - did the surgeon open the filler in front of you or bring in an unlabeled syringe? Voluma comes as a labelled, pre-filled syringe in a sealed plastic holder. Fake injections are very rare but I have seen one patient who was given salt water injections instead of the Juvederm and Botox she paid for.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.

Voluma and facial fillers
Voluma is my favorite facial injection especially for the mid-face. It immediately gives the face a natural lift. I do not understand why you do not see any difference after four syringes were injected. Did you compare photos before and after? I usually can correct the entire area with two or three syringes. I would definitely return to your treating physician for examination to discuss where Voluma was placed and your results. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Voluma.
