Restylane is a popular hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler.

Restylane Side Effects

You may experience some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and/or tenderness up to seven days.

Who shouldn't use it: Restylane cannot be used by women during pregnancy or who are breastfeeding. Hyaluronic acid fillers shouldn't be used if you're allergic to gram-positive bacteria or lidocaine. It can also be risky for individuals with bleeding disorders. Consult a physician first.

Drawbacks: All HA fillers, including Restylane, may cause bruising. If the product is injected too slowly, it can result in inflammation of the skin. A skilled injector can reduce bruising.

Recovery Time For Restylane

No need to rest up after Restylane injections. Go about your business.

After care for Restylane: Bruising is common after Restylane injections and all HA injections, and makeup can be used in the coming week to help hide this colorful side effect. Restylane is a pliable substance when it's first injected into your skin, so any excess movements can cause the filler to migrate. Basically, skip boot camp class for 24 hours.
