Swelling

Swelling, redness, discomfort and possibly bruising during the first few days following the injection is common. Most of this settles down within 3 days. Occasionally, the swelling can last up to one week, as well as bruising.

Swelling 3 Days After HA and Botox Injections

Hi Ketty,

If you cannot recognize yourself three days after treatment with fillers and Botox I would strongly recommend that you immediately be evaluated by your injecting physician or by someone who is an expert in the field.  Good luck and be well.

Fillers and swelling

Some swelling after fillers is normal. Excessive swelling is not. If you are concerned it is best to see your doctor.
