If you are looking to have Restylane done in Melbourne, Florida don’t panic if after a few days your lips are still swollen. This is a treatment that is not only long lasting but non-surgical as well. Restylane is a cosmetic filler that will work to correct wrinkles and enhance your lips. However, some patients see the swelling that occurs right after this procedure and think this is permanent.
Immediately after Restylane, the treated area can be slightly swollen and red. This is a normal result of the injection and it generally goes away in a day or two. Sleep with your head elevated on several pillows for a few nights and use ice compresses to reduce the swelling. This swelling can be present for up to a week after you have had this treatment and there should be no reason to worry. If you begin experiencing pain or itching you should call our office right away.
The body reabsorbs Restylane in varying amounts of time (generally 6 to 9 months). If you feel that your lips are too plump and you are unhappy with the results then Hyaluronidase is a natural substance found in the body, and may be injected into the area. This will catalyze the breakdown of the Restylane.
