What can I expect in terms of swelling and recovery after hand fillers?

Recovery after hand fillers is generally quick and easy. Here’s what you can typically expect:

  • Swelling: Some initial swelling is common, usually peaking within the first 24-48 hours.
  • Bruising: Mild bruising may occur at the injection sites.
  • Downtime: Most people return to normal activities immediately with minimal discomfort.
  • Timeline:
    • Swelling subsides significantly within a few days.
    • Full results become apparent within 1-2 weeks after any final swelling dissipates.

Tips for Quick Recovery:

  • Elevate Hands: Keep hands above heart level when possible to reduce swelling.
  • Apply Ice: Use ice packs wrapped in a cloth for 10-15 minutes at a time.
  • Limit Hand Use: Avoid strenuous hand activities for the first 24 hours.
