Thank you for coming in for your treatment. It was great to see your face. Whether you’re a returning patient (thank you) or this is your first time getting dermal fillers at our San Francisco practice, we congratulate you for staying beautiful.

You may have a few questions about your treatment. Dr. Mabrie created this resource to answer many of our most commonly asked questions.

Is Your Face Swollen?

Swelling based on number of daysIt’s OK! Most patients experience a significant amount of swelling the morning after. And you know what? That’s perfectly normal. It’s the natural way your face reacts to treatment. The swelling will go down in a short amount of time (usually within 24 to 48 hours after treatment). Here are some helpful tips to help with recovery…
