How Long Does Swelling from Belotero Basic Last?

I had Belotero Basic yesterday in nasolabial lines, marionette and few in chin. Looks okay but kind of swollen still. How long should it last and will it get more swollen as it attracts water?

How Long Does Swelling from Belotero Basic Last?

          The swelling from any filler injection usually subsides in a few days.  With bruising, this may take 2 weeks or so to resolve.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Of course it varies by the individual but typically swelling from injections can last a few days up to 1 week.  Most of the swelling occurs in the first 24-48 hours and should be going down after that.

Swelling after Belotero

Belotero in the area around the mouth, lips, and chin may last 2-3 days.  Injections into the lips may last a couple days longer.  Bruising associated with the injections may take 5-7 days to resolve.  Belotero is injected superficially in this area and swelling can be a concern compared to other thinner hyaluronic acid fillers.

Any filler usually takes 2-3 weeks to heal and settle before seeing your final result. You'll notice more inflammation in the early mornings because it attracts water.
