Red dots from Voluma injection

It generally takes about 3-4 days for this to go away, although sometimes it can take up to two weeks. This all depends on your rate of recovery, and how you generally recover from trauma. If you heal quickly, then you will heal from this quickly as well since it's related to the needle rather than the product itself. In the meantime, please keep the area clean to prevent infection.

Voluma Injection

Yes, the insertion point does go away.  Give it time, and be in touch with your injector if it does not.  Best of Luck!

Red spots following voluma injections

Yes the red spots left from the needle injection site will fade and go away.  It is not uncommon to have redness following injection. These will typically clear within a few days.

Voluma injections

The red spots are tiny bruises that will fade in about one week.  They are caused by the needle, not the Voluma.
