Swelling of the head after Restylane and exercise
Thank you for your question.
Exercise may affect the results a little but this seems a little exaggerated response. Sleep in a recliner with your head above the level of your heart and take some bioflavonoids. I recommend hesperidin, rutin as they are excellent. Read the ebook below.
Swelling after filler injections is fairly common.
Swelling after filler injections is fairly common with some fillers causing more swelling than others, and while exercise may have mildly exacerbated it, the exercise should not have had a lasting impact on your results. You can try icing the swollen areas and sleeping with your head elevated to help alleviate the swelling in the meantime. If after two weeks you are still unhappy with your result, visit your physician for a follow-up to see what options you have to correct it.
Filler and physical activity
The swelling associated with filler usually gets worse before getting better, so your symptoms are common and may be unrelated to your activity. Try frozen vegetables and sleeping upright and/or in a recliner. One cc of filler per cheek is very reasonable.
Swelling from Restylane Injections
Restylane can be hydrophilic and can get swollen after the injections. I would apply cold compresses/frozen peas to the area and it should resolve in a few days. Best, Dr. Green
Swollen cheeks after Restylane injections
Thank you for sharing your question. You probably have post injection swelling which is not related to your activities. Try cold compresses for a couple of days. You will likely look much better in a few days. Good luck,
Exercising after filler injections
Although exercise will not directly affect the long-term results, strenuous exercise after filler injections can potentially worsen the chances for swelling and bruising. Swelling after fillers can vary from person to person, based upon the filler used and the locations injected. It is important to apply cold-compresses after treatment to decrease the amount of bruising and swelling. Thankfully, swelling from fillers reduces very quickly in most patients. 1 syringe of filler per cheek is an average amount to use; some patients require more, some less.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid product and it absorbs water a great deal and there is usually some swelling afterwards but yours may be a little worse because of the activity at the gym.it is temporary and will go down after a few days. warm compresses may help
Exercise After Filler Injections
Moderate swelling is to be expected after any
filler treatment, however, in this case it was most likely exacerbated because you
returned to the gym so soon. I generally recommend patients refrain from
exercise or any strenuous activity for at least 24 hours; the same applies for
Botox/other neurotoxins. Swelling will typically subside within 3-5 days, so rest
assured that the look you see now will not stay. In addition, your workout
should not have moved or manipulated your filler whatsoever. Icing
intermittently should help, however if the swelling is fairly severe, you may
call your physician and ask to be prescribed an anti-inflammatory such as
As far as the amount of product used, it is
definitely not uncommon to use a syringe per cheek when necessary. Keep in mind
that although the swelling should not last two weeks, this is generally the
amount of time needed for the filler to settle; at that point you may be able
to enjoy the final results of your treatment. Best of luck!
