Swelling is Normal

+1

It is normal to have swelling after dermal fillers.  It will most likely subside if you had it done within the last week.  If you are still concerned 1 week post, contact your provider.

Swelling after treatment with filler

+1

Swelling is common after treatment with filler. This can persist for 1-2 weeks depending on the patient, and your final result may not be evident for 2 weeks after your treatment. I would recommend speaking with your provider regarding any concerns. I hope this helps, and best of luck.

Swelling and bruising are the two most common complaints after fillers. The swelling subsides within the first week or two, and bruising shortly thereafter. If you are still unhappy with how the filler has settled, Hyaluronidase is a good option for reversal. Best of luck!

Swelling is very common after Dermal filler injections.  This will usually subside in 1 - 2 weeks.  Cold is helpful in the first few days. But If you still have swelling after a week or so let your Dr know

Very swollen after fillers

+1

Swelling and bruising should be expected after fillers. Remember 1. injections are being done and 2. volume is being added. Both of these can lead to swelling and bruising. Continue to ice, take Arnica or apply Arnica gel, and stay away from Advil or Aleve for a few days. Also, keep your hands away from the area and don't press on it. It will subside with time.

Facial Swelling after fillers

+1

Its common to have some swelling and bruising after injections with fillers.  Using ice immediately before and after treatment can help decrease the amount of swelling you may experience.  The swelling should subside within a couple of days. Taking oral bromelin and arnica (found at healthfood stores or vitamin stores) can help significantly. All the Best.
