Apply Ice – While it's not recommended that patients put much pressure on their injection sites, gently applying ice to the treated areas can help reduce swelling. Avoid Exercising – An increased heart rate will cause your injection sites to swell; therefore, Dr.
Swelling should go down within 2–3 days after your lip filler treatment, and should subside completely within 2 weeks post-treatment. In the meantime, there are some things you should do to help manage swelling and discomfort.
Swelling following Restylane injections is usually very minimal. However, some patients can experience mild swelling that typically resolves in 3 days. I would recommend contacting your doctor to schedule an exam, as well as have your questions answered.
Answer: Hyaluronidase is used to dissolve Restylane
Hyaluronidase is an enzme that dissolves Restylane. It can lead to bruising and swelling, but the tissue should return to normal after a few days. Massaging the area where the Restylane has been injected may help move it out of the tissues faster.
Will Results Improve Over Time? Absolutely! This injectable gives you improved results over time, unlike many other similar treatments. The active ingredient in Restylane works with the natural regenerative properties of your body, extending the results you'll see after treatment over the course of several weeks.
Drink plenty of water. HA based fillers such as Juvederm work by using the water naturally stored in our tissues, by drinking plenty of water after having a dermal filler treatment it helps the filler hold its chaos and last for longer.
You will see the final results of your treatment about four to six weeks after your treatment, which is about the time it takes for your body to kickstart collagen production to restore facial volume. This is also because it takes about two weeks for this dermal filler to settle into the hollows of your skin.
Why do dermal fillers cause swelling? Dermal Fillers commonly cause swelling and sometimes even bruising. The injection process disturbs the skin and soft tissue, causing minor trauma to the area, and swelling is a natural bodily response whilst the area heals.
Answer: Care for bumps on Lips from Restylane
Small bumps after fillers can smooth out and go away in 2-3 weeks. I do advise clients to massage them gently as long as they are not painful.
For one to two days after your treatment, regular application of a cold compress can reduce pain, swelling, and bruising that may result from dermal fillers. We recommend that patients rinse a washcloth in ice water or wrap an ice pack with a thin cloth.
Although extremely rare, dermal fillers are able to migrate within the skin if consistent and adequate pressure is applied to them. For this reason, we advise patients not to get a facial, massage (on the treated skin), or microdermabrasion for the first two weeks following their filler injections.
Swelling can last 3-4 days. It is also normal to experience some tenderness. You may take Tylenol for this. Avoid aspirin or ibuprofen products as they may increase your potential to bruise.
The filler can take several weeks to soften and settle into your skin. This means that patients won't see the ultimate results of their treatment immediately. Although individual results will vary, many people achieve the full effect within two weeks after receiving their injections.
After your treatment, you may experience side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips.
Avoid itching, or picking around the injection site. Avoid applying intense heat to the treated area, that includes hot tubs, saunas, sunbathing or tanning. Don't drink alcohol the day of treatment, and try to avoid it for 2 days after. Avoid exercising for 2 days or until swelling subsides.
Food & drink to avoid
– Alcohol – though it's tempting to toast to your lovely results, drinking in the first 24 hours could lead to bruising and swelling. – Caffeine – whether in food or drink form, could slow down the healing process as it can cause dehydration.
Try to sleep on your back for 24-48 hours after filler injections. After that, you can safely sleep on your side without worrying that the filler will move with gravity.
Make sure to sleep on your back with your head elevated using 2 pillows for 3 nights-this will ensure that the newly injected filler stays in place. Another option would be to use a wrap around neck pillow to stabilize your head.
AVOID: Alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours after your treatment. AVOID: Vigorous exercise and sun and heat exposure for 3 days after treatment.
Avoid excessive touching or massaging the treated areas for about 6 hours after the injections. The treated areas can be washed with a gentle cleanser such as Cetaphil® Cerave® or Dove® unscented. Your satisfaction is important to us!
