Does Vitrase Cause Voluma To Migrate?
Vitrase is an enzyme that dissolves long chain sugar molecules such as HA (Voluma) into its component parts. It is a dose-related response and only the Voluma exposed to the enzyme will dissolve. Voluma is strongly integrated into tissue and should not migrate or drift downwards even if the product around it is dissolved.
Does Hyaluronidase move Voluma?
Although Voluma is a great product, I would always make sure your surgeon or dermatologist has significant experience with it. As Voluma is a new filler manufactured by Allergan, most injectors' experiences are limited. I would seek out a plastic surgeon in your area who has extensive experience with injecting cheek fillers and typically performs many facial surgeries, as he/she is thus more likely to be familiar with the anatomy in that area, which can be variable even from one side of the face to the other. I would also ask for a plastic surgeon who took the Allergan Expert Hands-on training course specific for Voluma injection.
