Restylane and side effects
Restylane is a fabulous injection for the lips. You can have bruising or some swelling or discomfort after the procedure. I always recommend taking Arnica before any injection and refrain from taking anything that could cause bruising. Advil, Motrin, or Tylenol, will all help the discomfort. Icing the area helps as well. Best, Dr. Green

In order to mimimize potential bruising, avoid the following products 7 days prior to treatment and for up to 7 days after treatment: Alcohol, Aspirin, Vitamin E, anticoagulants such as Plavix, Coumadin, Fish Oil, St. John's Wort, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginger, Garlic, Feverfew or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory products such as Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or Naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn). In your case, take tylenol or use cold compresses.
