Does My Face Go Back to Normal After Fillers?

Synthetic fillers have been manufactured to last longer, with some lasting up to 18 months to 2 years. In case of overfilling, some fillings may be reversed. Most likely, you had vitrase after just one week. In doing so, much of what you had was likely to swell, so vitrase may not have been injected into the places with the most filling.

This has left a large part of the padding still on the face, hence the dents, bumps and swelling. Over time, your body will absorb the filler (about 8 months) and then everything will return to normal. However, you can also choose to take another round of vitrase now that you can better see where the filling is, as opposed to what were previously likely swollen areas and not padding. This scenario is why experts recommend that people wait a minimum of 2 weeks before adjusting fillings; otherwise, you start correcting, overcorrecting, and correcting again.

The total recovery time from dermal filler treatment varies from patient to patient. Generally speaking, it takes one to two days for the recovery process to be complete. Most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. In fact, some people schedule their treatment during lunch time and return to work immediately afterwards.

There are very few restrictions with dermal fillers. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first day or two in order to allow the filler to settle in place and the skin to heal with as little swelling and bruising as possible. That said, these injectable treatments take some time to integrate into the tissues, and it's normal for the dermal filler to take up to two weeks to fully settle on the face.
