Lumps usually occur due to bruising under the filler. To prevent skin bumps from forming after an injection, it is important to take steps to prevent bruising.
Before treatment, avoiding certain medications or supplements (blood thinners), avoiding alcohol, and talking to your doctor about any problems you've had in the past will help reduce the risk of bruising. After treatment, there are additional steps you can take to minimize bruising, such as using ice, avoiding certain medications, avoiding alcohol and using moisturizers with hyaluronic acid. The good news is that yes, those pesky lumps of filler will eventually go away. In fact, it is very rare for patients to experience irritations or lumps after the procedure, but if they do, it is expected that they will disappear after a few days. At most, it can take 2 to 3 weeks to fully resolve them with minimal downtime.
