Got lip injections done 2 weeks ago, loved the look when my lips were swollen, but now that the swelling is gone I don't have much of a difference from before the injections. Wanting to know if I can get more injected, or do I have to wait a certain length of time before I can go back get more. Just feel like the same lips and spend 500.00 for nothing.
How soon after getting Restalyn (sp) lip injections can you get more injected?

How soon to get more restylane
I generally advise waiting 2 weeks to let any swelling or bruising settle down. After 2 weeks, feel free to come back for more filler for your lips. Especially for the lips, its good to be conservative since you can always add more filler later; this way it is more gradual and natural looking. ~ Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.

It is smart to under-treat the lips with fillers. You can always add more, but over correction can be quite strange looking. It is fine to have a second treatment after a week or so to let the swelling go away so you can see the final result.
More Restylane in lips? When?
It will be fine to go back and have more added now. I often tell my patients who say that they don't want much added to lips that if they love them when they are swollen come vback in two weeks. We get a lot od two week returns.
More Restylane can be injected anytime.
when you have had Restylane injected, it may be prudent to wait at least at least a week until all swelling is gone, This allows a more accurate augmentation buy your doctor.
