Most of the time, hyaluronic acid-based fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane last between 6 to 18 months. In some cases, they may last a little more or less. Other fillers, such as Sculptra, can last up to two years, but they are not usually the first choice for lip augmentation. The good news is that any lumps or irritation caused by the filler will eventually go away.
It is rare for patients to experience any kind of irritation or lumps after the procedure, but if they do occur, they should dissipate within a few days. In some cases, it may take up to two or three weeks for them to completely disappear with minimal downtime. The exact length of time it takes for the filler to go away will depend on factors such as age, the severity of skin problems, the type of product used in the treatment, how quickly the body metabolizes the filler, and how well you take care of your skin after injections. Generally speaking, you can expect good results for at least six months.
Some people find that their results last up to two years in a row. Common lip fillers include Juvederm, Restylane, and Radiesse. Before the injections are administered, a topical numbing cream will be applied and Juvederm and Restylane also contain lidocaine to reduce discomfort. Juvederm injections can be performed by a doctor, nurse practitioner, or other clinicians who will advise you on whether you are a suitable candidate for Juvederm treatments and what kind of results you can expect.
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm can be dissolved with the hyaluronidase enzyme which starts working almost immediately. Juvederm is used to fill in lines and wrinkles and add volume to areas that have lost mass due to aging. Most hyaluronic acid fillers used on the lips, jaw and cheeks including Juvederm and Restylane are metabolized after 6 months to a year. This reaction is more common in people who have had hyaluronic acid-based lip filler injections but is still considered a “rare complication” by dermatologists.
In order to prevent any bumps or irregularities from occurring after Juvederm treatments, it is important to select a professional with extensive experience in this procedure who knows exactly what is needed to keep the process fast, safe and without side effects. There is no specific reason why lumps may occur after Juvederm treatments but these are some potential causes.
