Restylane typically has a slight swelling after the injection, especially around the eyes and lips. This is due to the fact that the product absorbs water and the “injection trauma”. This usually takes 2 weeks to completely calm down. Restylane injections may have lumps or lumps that appear after treatment, but disappear within a couple of weeks.
If the bumps don't resolve on their own within a month, your provider may use hyaluronidase to dissolve it. Lumps and lumps can occur with any dermal filler injection. In fact, it is very common for patients to feel bumps on their skin days after treatment. The most common cause of lumps after a filler treatment is swelling and bruising from the injections themselves.
These should naturally disappear within the first week. While hyaluronic acid gel fillers are malleable and formulated specifically for the lips, they can cause immediate bumps when injected. I always tell patients that the “tissue accommodation reaction for fillers and toxins is two weeks. If you have small bumps after treatment with Restylane, you can wait a few days for them to go away on their own.
Skin reactions or prolonged inflammation related to Restylane injection are extremely rare (I, personally, have never seen it). I recommend that patients do nothing more than gently apply ice to the areas where fillers, including Restylane, were injected for the first 3 days after treatment. Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip augmentation and smoothing wrinkles around the mouth. With hyaluronic acid products such as Restylane, hyaluronidase can be used to dissolve the product in selected cases if necessary.
When the cause is frozen hyaluronic acid (which usually occurs if fillers from the Juvederm and Restylane families are used), it can be easily corrected by injecting hyaluronidase directly into the lump. Shocks close to the skin after a restylane injection are caused by the injector pressing on the plunger while the needle is withdrawn. It is composed of a smaller and softer gel than other Restylane products, resulting in a smoother and more precise result. Many people say that after injections of restylane, they may feel lumps under the skin for a long time.
Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the corner of the mouth to the chin). With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months with Restylane, although results may vary between patients. The good news, in the case of a Restylane or Juvederm bump that does not resolve in time, is that these materials (hyaluronic acid gels) can be easily dissolved with hyaluronidase injection (Amphadase or Vitrase).
