Q. Are there any side effects to having facial fillers or lip injections?
A. Immediately after your treatment, you may experience mild bleeding and moderate swelling. Some people bruise from the injections, but many do not. Both swelling and bruising should subside in 4-7 days. The injectables we use now are derived from substances that naturally occur in the body, such as hyaluronic acid, and therefore have very minimal incidence of allergic reaction.
