Typically 7-10 days
Swelling typically last 7-10 days. If you are still experiencing pain contact your doctor. It is best to see your physician and make them aware of the situation.
Up to 5 days in rare cases...
Swelling following treatment with Restylane can be a major source of anxiety for cosmetic surgery patients. It’s important to remember that in most cases swelling resolves with the passage of time and the majority of patients are ultimately happy with their result.
A swollen cheek with significant pain two weeks following Restylane injection is definitely abnormal and should be evaluated immediately. This might represent a hematoma, seroma, or infection. Under these circumstances drainage or antibiotics may be necessary. If you have this type of problem following Restylane injections, it’s important to contact your physician as soon as possible. Your physician should be able to formulate a plan that addresses your concerns.
It may be normal, resolving swelling, but it is time for a f/u appt
When fillers are injected in the cheek area, particularly when close to the lower eyelid, swelling may persist longer than other areas of the face. You may have a resolving ecchymosis or bruise responsible for the asymmetry. Whatever the case you should make a follow-up appt with your provider, and he/she, after an exam, can give you a more precise answer.

Good Day Melzy,
See your doc to make sure that you do not have an infection. The pain and swelling after two weeks are most unusal following Restylane injections, and may be signs of an infection. Good luck and please let us know how it goes. Be well and send my regards to Harley Street.
Swelling following Restylane injections is usually very minimal. However, some patients can experience mild swelling that typically resolves in 3 days. I would recommend contacting your doctor to schedule an exam, as well as have your questions answered.
