Swelling after Bellafill

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Swelling is very common following filler injection and while it is self-limiting, ice can also help specially right after the procedure. Some patients experience more swelling on the 2nd day (that’s when we tend to get the frantic calls!) but swelling alone is not a concern and it will gradually goes down within days. I hope it helps and good luck!
