It's best your husband follows up with his provider to further evalute this issue. If it is indeed lumps of Restylane, it can be dissvoled with hyaluronidase or it can possibly be a cold sore

Restylane in the lips

It's likely Restylane and your husband should go back to the provider for follow up. It either needs to be massaged in and/or removed with Vitrase.

Lip bumps after Restylane

The lip injections with Restylane can develop lumps from superficial injection. The lumps can be the actual material itself. The other possibility is cold sores (Herpes Simplex). In that case it is usually painful. If that is the case you will need an oral antiviral medication. If the material is causing the lump, it can be squeezed out by the doctor after making a small needle stab or she/he can use 'Hyaluronidase' injection whtic is an antidote for Restylane and absorbs the material in one to two days.

Most likly injection site blood or Ha filler. Best to allow more healing time. Or see the injecting doctor for evaluation and treatment.
