Teosyal Filler in Cheek: Left with Swelling and Discoloration
Doctor Answers 2
Swelling is a normal side effect of injections and can take up to 2 weeks to settle.
If you are concerned and it has been beyond 2 weeks, schedule a follow up with your injector to be assessed.
Hope this helps.

Teosyal in cheeks
- Teosyal is Hyaluronic acid based dermal filler with an average life span in tissues of 9-12months. Initial swelling following the injections of Teosyal is common but rarely lasts beyond 3 days. Slight lumpiness might persist longer and can be helped by massaging the area.
- Antibiotics only help if there is infection.
- Slightly blue dicloloraton can be seen in the area of treatment, this is due to the implanted transparent filler giving a shadow under the skin. This temporary.
- If you would like to get rid of the filler quickly ask your doctor to use Hyaluronidase injection which can almost instantly dissolve the filler.
