Here at REVOLAX, we know that getting dermal fillers is an exciting journey, one that is filled with anticipation and some nervousness. After all, who doesn’t want plump luscious lips? But, before you start your dermal filler journey, it’s crucial to understand the settling process to ensure you have a smooth and satisfying end result. 

So, in order to help with this, we’ve put together this helpful guide on the settling process. Let’s dive right into the fascinating world of REVOLAX fillers and find out, “How long does it take for REVOLAX filler to settle?”

What happens immediately after a REVOLAX filler treatment?

From the minute you walk out of your aesthetic practitioner clinic post-REVOLAX filler treatment, we can imagine you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Your lips will have that plumper feeling and will be more defined. This is like a sneak peek of the future results to come – how exciting! 

However, here’s the catch: these immediate results are not necessarily the final look you’ll be rocking. Not to worry though; your lips will still be in the early stages of their transformation.

Now, there are two companions that come with filler treatments and these are swelling and redness. You shouldn’t be alarmed if your lips look a bit puffier than expected or have a slight bit of redness to them. These are common side effects that are experienced immediately after lip filler, and we promise, they are temporary! Within a few days, or in some cases, hours, they’ll gradually subside, revealing your beautifully enhanced lips.

The settling period for REVOLAX fillers

Let us take you through the common settling period for REVOLAX fillers. We know you’ll be wondering when you can expect to see the full results  of your new lips, but it is important to remember that the settling process is a journey and you have to be patient. 

Week 1-2

During the first week or two post-treatment, your filler may still feel a bit firm, and there may be some leftover swelling. The key point here is do not worry – this is perfectly normal! It’ll take some time for your lips to get used to the filler. At this point in your recovery, most of the initial side effects mentioned should be on their way out.

Week 3-4

Now, this is when it gets good. At this point, your lips will start to look, and feel more natural and soft. This will provide you with a better idea of your final results!

Week 6-8

The recovery and settling process is a marathon, not a sprint. So, it’s important to be patient and expect the transformation of your lips to continue for up to 8 weeks. By this time, your REVOLAX filler will have fully integrated with your lips, and you’ll be able to start showing off those natural results you’ve been dreaming of.

How to care for your lips during the settling period

Even though your lips are a work in progress, this doesn’t mean they don’t require a bit of TLC. Our expert team have pulled together your go-to list for how to pamper your lips during the settling period:

  • Follow your aesthetic practitioner aftercare – your practitioner will provide you with a list of aftercare instructions following treatment and it is super important that you follow them exactly! 
  • Avoid excessive pressure on your lips
  • Avoid excessive or very strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after treatment
  • Avoid hot temperatures for at least 24 hours after treatment.
  • Use an ice pack on your lips.
  • Drink plenty of water – staying hydrated is key for settling lips. Drinking lots of water can help with this recovery and reduce the risk of dehydration-related swelling.
  • Avoid excessive salt for 24 hours as this can cause dehydration and this is something we want to avoid!

How long does lip filler take to settle?

As we’ve mentioned, you will see immediate results from your treatment, but you need to remember that it does take time. Your lips will continue to transform over the following weeks but expect the settling process to take up to 8 weeks.
