Crease from filler voluma? (Photo)

I had voluma injected in a acne scar and well the filler was put in the wrong area. Now I have a crease from the filler in the middle between my eyebrows on my forehead. If I get this dissolved will the crease go away? And why would a crease happen?

Dissolving Voluma

Yes, Voluma can be dissolved. Schedule an appointment with your surgeon to discuss. And make sure to look at your before & after photos to be certain that the "crease" wasn't there before. It may be that you are just noticing it now due to increased scrutiny of your face.

Thank you for your question in regards to Voluma. Voluma is dissolvable with hyaluronidase injections. To be sure, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.

Voluma for acne scar - not happy

If not happy with the results, Voluma can be dissolved with hyaluroidase. The "new" crease should improve after this injection. Bellafill is FDA approved for acne scarring. Also, Infini is a good choice for scarring.

I suggest you post before and after photos with similar lighting and discuss this with your injector.  This can be reversed with hyaluronidase.  Best, Dr. Emer.

All the fillers mentioned above can be dissolved with an injection of hyaluronidase. This should resolve the issue.

Voluma and Dissolving Filler

Voluma is a great filler but not designed for filling acne scars.  I would recommend that you have it dissolved with Vitrase.  Best, Dr. Green
