Most of the time, HA-based fillers (Juvederm, Restylane) last 6 to 18 months. In some people, they last a little more or less. Some other fillers, such as Sculptra, can last 2 years, but it's usually not the first choice for lip augmentation. The good news is that yes, those annoying lumps of filling will go away.
It's actually quite rare for patients to experience irritation or lumps after the procedure, but if you do, you should expect them to dissipate after a few days. At most, it can take 2 to 3 weeks to completely relieve them with limited downtime. There is no one-size-fits-all answer here, as it will depend on your age, the severity of your skin problems, the precise formula of the product used in your treatment, the natural speed at which your body metabolizes the filler, and how you treat your skin after injections. However, you can generally expect to get 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, which are all of the treatments we offer here at Skin Pharm. While we also offer Sculptra, it is not recommended to use it on the lips. The swelling will continue to decrease and should completely disappear after the first 48 hours.
We will apply a topical numbing cream before the injections, and both Juvederm and Restylane also contain lidocaine, an injectable medication used to reduce discomfort. For context, Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, while Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite. Juvederm injections can be performed by a doctor, doctor, nurse practitioner, and other clinicians. They will advise you on whether you are the right candidate for Juvederm treatments and how you should expect your body to respond after each one.
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, such as Juvederm and Restylane, but are still considered “rare complications” by dermatologists.
Like other dermal fillers, Juvederm is applied to injection sites in the face, neck, and jawline. The way to prevent filler bumps or irregularities is simple; select a professional who has extensive experience in this procedure and knows exactly what is needed to keep the Juvederm process fast, safe and without side effects. There's no specific reason you might experience lumps after your Juvederm treatment, but these are the potential culprits. Juvederm Volbella XC is a safe and reliable procedure, essentially when performed by the best specialists in Connecticut.
