5 Days PO, Lips Chapped and Swollen, Normal?

Hi, 5 days ago I woke up and my lips were extremely dry and chapped feeling. The day after that initial day, I have been waking up every morning, this is day 4, that I wake up with my lips swollen a lot. It goes down then it does it again the next morning. Help!

Inflammation/bruising is very common after having a filler injected to the lips. Restylane absorbs water and this is why you're seeing more swelling in the mornings. Give it a full two weeks to settle before seeing your final result
