Voluma and product placement
Voluma is a fabulous product for injecting the mid-face. It appears that the product may have been injected too close to the nose or too superficial. An in person consultation is needed to properly assess the areas of concern. I would suggest you consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Voluma about perhaps dissolving the injections and building up the cheek area.
All the best,

2 weeks out, you will be unable to massage it. Massaging has a minimal effect and should only be performed during the initial injection by the plastic surgeon.
You now have the following options:
(1) Ask your physician to "dissolve" the Voluma with Hyaluronidase. He/she should specifically target the prominent Voluma adjacent to the nose. This should have an immediate effect. However, some of the Voluma "nearby" may also dissolve, and you may lose a significant amount of the cheek augmentation effect.
(2) Camouflage the lower eyelid shadowing by adding filler to the tear trough -- Belotero may be used for this purpose. This should level out the hollowing, and limit the "dark circle" effect.
Since Voluma is a newly manufactured filler by Allergan, most injectors' experiences are limited. It is best to ask for an aesthetic-trained plastic surgeon who performs a significant amount of filler injections and took the Allergan expert-training Hands-on course.
