Firm lip after Restylane Silk Injection.
Doctor Answers 3
The restylane products can swell post injections and feel a little hard compared to some of the other hyaluronic acids on the market. This typically last for 48-72 hours. I would gently massage the area to soften it. I suggest you look inside the mouth and see if you have a bruise. This could account for some hardness as well. If it does not go down,then I would consult the injector. Common things being common, I suspect this will all settle in about a week.
Firm lip after Restylane Silk injection
2 days after lip filler, there is still swelling and possible bruising from the injection. If it is severe, I would discuss with your doctor. If it is mild, head of bed elevation and anti-inflammatories will be helpful. Things should settle down by day 10.
Restylane Silk For Lip Injections
It is pretty normal for you to feel some firmness in the lips for a few days or so after lip injections. Restylane Silk tends to be a firmer gel than some of the other FDA approved lip products like Juvederm Ultra. You may also have a deeper bruise in that area that is accounting for the firmness. I would gently massage the lips with a product like Aquaphor and apply ice for a few days. If it doesn't get any better, I would go back to your injector so that they can check it out.
