What to Expect After Restylane Injections: Lumps and Bumps

Restylane injections may cause bumps or lumps to appear after treatment, but these should go away within a couple of weeks. If the bumps don't resolve on their own within a month, your provider may use hyaluronidase to dissolve them. The effects of Restylane injections are temporary, so the lump should slowly disappear. Patients should be aware that injected fillers may be palpable for several months, but only visible lumps or bumps are of concern.

It is important not to panic if you experience lumps after Restylane injections. It is very common in the first few days to a couple of weeks after treatment. You may feel bumps on the skin in the days after injecting the dermal filler into the face, including the body of the upper lip and cheeks and chin area, and along wrinkles and folds when injected to lift them up. To reduce the incidence of lumps, your provider may use an injection technique that involves drawing many fine lines in an area instead of depositing large lumps of filler.If you are concerned about lumps or bumps after Restylane injections, it is best to contact your provider for advice.

They will be able to assess the situation and provide you with the best course of action.
