How Long Do Lip Fillers Take To Heal?

Lip fillers (or lip injections) are a hugely popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure, helping you create a fuller, more plump look with just one quick session with your doctor. 

One of the big draw cards of lip filler treatment is that - as it’s nonsurgical - there is no downtime needed. However, since it is an injectable treatment, there will be a short healing process involved.

So how long do lip fillers take to heall?

Firstly, while this is a very safe procedure with very few side effects you may experience some temporary bruising or swelling in the area immediately after injections.

This is quite normal and only temporary, typically any lip swelling that may occur usually happens during the first 24 hours after your injection(s).

This should go down within 2–3 days after your lip filler treatment, and all signs of swelling should have completely disappeared within 2 weeks.

Once the swelling goes down, your lips will look and feel great.

One way to further reduce swelling is by using a good set of lip filler aftercare order to achieve best aesthetic results.

The benefits of using specialized lip care cosmetics are two fold:

  • It will ensure your lips are kept well hydrated and healthy - this will help you during the initial recovery process.

  • What’s more, it’s also great to use as a “pre-care” treatment leading up to your lip fillers, as you can greatly minimize the appearance of initial swelling and bruising if your lips are in tip top shape beforehand
