Restylane® products, like many types of filler, can cause some degree of swelling for up to one week after your treatment, as well as bruising. However, bruising can be minimized by preparing and following the tips listed above in the preparation section. There may be some redness to the skin following your injections and even small “bee sting” feeling bumps. All of these should improve within days- so please schedule your injectable appointment a week or two prior to any special occasion! Results and correction can be seen immediately, with final results about two weeks after your treatment.
We are often asked how long fillers last and really the true answer is- however long you maintain them! Some Restylane® fillers last longer than others (average is 4-18 months), just like other hyaluronic acid products. However, proper product stacking and maintenance can help you get the most out of your product and treatments!
