I got 1ml of filler around four weeks ago. I got some bruising and could feel some small lumps in my lips too. I brought a small ice pack with me to my appointment and applied it on the way home and on and off afterwards for the next couple of hours. The swelling was so much less than the first time I ever tried fillers! So that’s a tip I would recommend. A majority of my swelling went down over the first two weeks. The bruising went in a few days. Arnica cream is really good for helping to get rid of bruising too.
Also, I don not feel any of the lumps that were there earlier.
It takes at least a few days if you’ve got a lot of swelling.
