Swelling after Facial Injections
Restylane and Juvederm are great facial fillers. Local swelling and bruising are potential side effects. Generally swelling will go down in less than two weeks. If the swelling does not go away then perhaps too much product was injected. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with facial fillers.
Swelling is common and temporary after filler treatments
Sorry to hear about your uneven swelling. I understand why you feel concerned, but it is not uncommon for swelling to last up to 2 weeks. If you feel that the filler product has migrated slightly from the original injection area or did not settle in evenly, then please revisit with your physician to have this assessed.
The swelling, does it ever go down after injections to the smile area?
Swelling is fairly common following injections of fillers. I would wait at least 2 weeks to allow the swelling to subside. If you are unhappy at that point, consider visiting your injector.
Uneven Restylane Injections
Swelling is rarely symmetrical. Many factors can influence the outcome of injections such as amount injected and bruising. It can take up to 2 weeks for this swelling to resolve. If after a length of time you feel there is asymmetry, the filler can be broken down with hyaluronidase.
Swelling from injections into smile lines
Swelling is the most common side effect from fillers and really should be expected every time. Often swelling is uneven or asymmetrical. Let it resolve with some time - up to 10 days even - and then assess your results.
