What to Expect After Facial Fillers
- Immediately following treatment, you may notice some minor discomfort, stinging or throbbing in the injected area.
- Occasionally some bruising or swelling will occur, but it usually minor.
- Any redness that appears in the injected site usually disappears within 24 hours.
- No bandaging is needed and you are free to eat, drink, and wear makeup with sun block protection shortly thereafter.
The duration of results from filler injections is variable. The longevity depends on the patient’s lifestyle and physical characteristics as well as the part of the body treated. In general, the injected material is likely to disappear faster in areas that are more affected by muscle movement. Results typically last 6 to 12 months, except for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, which can last up to 2 years.1
