How to Time Your Facial Filler

How to Time Your Facial Filler

When you have fine lines, acne scars or other cosmetic flaws, facial fillers can help reduce them. However, it’s important to keep the timeline for your facial filler in mind. If you want facial fillers for a spring event, such as an upcoming wedding, bridal shower or graduation, make sure you give yourself enough time for your filler to develop. The amount of time you’ll need depends on the type of filler you want to get, such as Restylane® or Bellafill®. Use the following information as a guideline for scheduling your facial filler. 


Restylane contains hyaluronic acids, which are natural sugars that help skin stay hydrated and healthy. These ingredients also increase skin elasticity and fullness. Restylane develops right away and you will start seeing fuller cheeks and plumper lips immediately. You may notice some swelling and bruising after your filler, which is normal and can last four to seven days. 

For both facial fillers (such as Restylane Refyne and Defyne) and lip fillers (such as Restylane Silk), plan on scheduling your event one to two weeks after your appointment to ensure any side effects have disappeared, leaving you with the most optimal results.

Bellafill contains a collagen gel that helps reduce wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars by working with your body and adding natural volume. You'll start noticing results from your Bellafill filler immediately, but optimal results will come with time. As a collagen filler, your body begins to metabolize the collagen microspheres alongside your body's natural collagen as the weeks progress. You may notice that fine lines and acne scars are still fading two to three weeks after your facial filler. To give yourself plenty of time before planning your springtime celebration, we recommend waiting at least three weeks after injection so that you look and feel your best. While Bellafill is approved to last up to one year for acne scars and up to five for nasolabial folds, keep in mind that your body will continue to metabolize the collagen microspheres, and you may find yourself making fewer touch-up appointments over time.

Remember that these are all suggested timelines based on your unique skin type and that all results and side effects may vary. We recommend consulting your doctor to personalize your treatment plan based on your desired results, budget and timeline.
