Thank you for your question. I would recommend consulting with a Board Certified Dermatologist for best treatment plan. Infraorbital Neurovascular bundle is not an area of injection. There's an area in the anteromedial cheek that's safe to inject and an experienced injector should know that. I hope this helps!
Voluma as filler: how is it best used?
Voluma is an 'H.A.' class filler that is FDA approved for mid-face augmentation. (below lower eyelids, near cheekbone). Since it is denser than some H.A. fillers, it lasts longer & can better support soft tissue. Many people, especially those with a heritage from northern Europe, have relatively deficient mid-face structures. Even with good soft tissue in the cheeks, with aging comes descent & loss of volume. So the injectable fillers can really make a nice improvement in facial support. We have used other fillers as well such as Restylane, Sculptra, & Radiesse and each has its pros & cons. It is important to not OVER-fill with any of these and the lower eyelids region deserves utmost care & precision. An experienced physician injector can discuss your best filler options prior to this rewarding & artistic treatment.

You're asking a very specific question about the risks and benefits of various rejuvenation options. I commend you for asking such a knowledgeable question. I would strongly suggest that you consult with a highly experienced injector who understands both your aesthetic goals as well as the anatomy of the midface and the risks of each of your treatment options. You can then make an informed decision as to how you would like to proceed.
Voluma and Technique
Voluma is a fabulous injection for the mid-face and increases the facial volume in the area with an immediate natural appearance that lasts up to two years. For specific questions abut your anatomy and facial injections an in office consultation by a board certified physician specializing in facial injections would be necessary to ensure the best cosmetic results.
Great specific question! Voluma is technique dependent but if you are concerned over the infraorbital nerve bundle, you can ask an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon if they can place it using blunt micro cannulas to avoid trauma and bruising.
Thanks for your
question and having photos to look at would help us give you a better, more
detailed answer. I always recommend that you have your injections given in the
offices of board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeons as they understand
more about the anatomy in these areas than anyone else and will be able to
determine the proper sites for injections for you and your concerns.
Natural facial volume augmentation with Voluma
Voluma (Juvederm Voluma XC) is a great hyaluronic acid based
filler that can augment and rejuvenate the facial appearance. A voluma natural
result not only depends on the location where the injection is placed
(…anterio-lateral, etc.), but also on the skills and experience of the injector.
Voluma acts as a “liquid implant”, therefore, injectors with great knowledge of
the facial anatomy like plastic surgeons or craniofacial surgeons should be
able to deliver a great natural looking results. Patients interested in facial
augmentation with voluma should discuss this treatment option with a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon specialized in cosmetic surgery of the face.

Thank you for your question. Pictures would be helpful.
Sometimes the filler can be "walked" into this area without being injected directly.
To be sure what might help you, see two or more experienced, licensed
and certified providers for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good
candidate and that it is safe for you to have the procedure.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for your question. Ensure you are working with an experienced injector. The product should only enhanced the area injected.
