I had Radiesse injections yesterday to smile lines between the nose and mouth. My upper lip is swollen. I look like a Who from Whoville. I'm using ice and Arnicare Gel. Help? I was told I could go back to work; I don't think so! I honestly look like a Who.
How Long for Radiesse Swelling to Go Down?
Doctor Answers 3
Swelling can vary
Swelling can vary and can go down immediately or can last for a couple of days or more. Usually swelling will not last longer than a month.

Swelling After Radiesse Injections
Oops, not the look that you were going for. Discuss your concerns with your injecting physician. If the swelling is due to swelling from bleeding, then it should resolve over the next week. If it is due to too much Radiesse, then it will take much longer. I hope that your swelling resolves soon and that you do not need to seek employment with Dr. Seuss.
Good luck and be well.
