Volbella and Volume - uncommon reaction
It is important to obtain an in person evaluation from your injector.

touch base with your doctor. I do a lot of injections with voluma and volbella and have never seen this. perhaps a course of oral steroids and/or anti-histamines may be necessary.
Swelling after fillers
Thank you for your question AmeliaBentley. I understand your concern. Volbella is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to enhance the lips. It is difficult to make an assessment without a formal exam. However in some cases a delayed reaction can occur. Some treatments include a course of antibiotics or steroids or dissolving the product with hyaluronidase.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Volbella and Reaction
Volbella is a fabulous injection for the lips but it appears that you are having some unusual reaction. You should return immediately to your treating physician for evaluation and possible hyaluronidase to remove the product. Please update us. Best, Dr. Green
Thank you for your question.
This is definitely an odd presentation.
Without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of any further treatments it is difficult to be comprehensive.
Things to consider are that you may have be having an allergic response to the injection, versus an inflammatory response. The other possibility if that you are having an infection.
I would recommend that you discuss with your physician these possibilities as well as dissolving these substances with Hyaluronidase enzyme. That should clear up any reaction you are having quickly by eliminating the product.
