I have have gotten restylane injections for 3 years with no side effects. The last time my Doctor mentioned that my right cheek is a little more hollow and injected just the right (middle of cheek next to my nose). I was happy with the results. Two months later I woke up with a swollen and hard cheek. I took Ibeprofen and after 4 days I was back to normal. Two weeks later the same area starting to swell and get hard. Since, the swelling continues to reoccur And after a few days goes away.
