When can I expect my lip filler to fully settle?

While you’ll see some immediate changes after lip filler, it takes time for final results to emerge. Here’s a typical timeline:

  • Days 1-3: Swelling is likely most significant during this period.
  • Days 4-14: Swelling gradually subsides, and your lips will begin to soften and take their final shape.
  • 2 Weeks+: Most fillers are considered fully settled around the 2-week mark, and you’ll see your true final outcome.

Factors Affecting Settling Time:

  • Filler Type: Some fillers settle faster than others.
  • Individual Metabolism: How quickly your body breaks down filler can influence the timeline.
  • Injection Technique: Your injector’s technique impacts initial swelling.

Patience is Key: While it’s exciting to see your new lips, allow for the full settling period to appreciate your final results.
