What are the Risks of Voluma?
There can be bruising, redness, tenderness and discoloration at the site of injection which usually resolve over several days. If lumpiness occurs at the injection site, the advantage of Voluma and other hyaluronic acid fillers over non-hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Bellafill®, is that Voluma can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase. Thus, incorrect placement can be “erased” and does not have to remain until it is naturally reabsorbed by the body. Persons with any history of history of allergies to gram-positive bacterial proteins or lidocaine should not use Voluma.
