I had Restylane injections on my lower lip and after about 6-8 hours later it started really swelling. Is this normal? (photos)

If only a half of a syringe was used, the final result after swelling goes down will be very subtle.
I have done many lip injections for filling and have found that this is very common using sharp needles. I have since switched to using a blunt needle for filling the lips and have seen significantly less swelling and bruising.
Ice packs can help. Give it a week. I think you will be very happy when the swelling comes down.
