How Long Will Swelling Last After TEOXANE RHA® Treatment?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


When you think of fillers, you probably think first of JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and other widely known products. Until now, you may not have heard of one of the newest and most exciting injectables to hit the market. The TEOXANE family of injectable dermal fillers is counted among the most in-demand cosmetic treatments available today, thanks to its natural-looking, long-lasting results. Internationally renowned board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi and the aesthetic team at VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV are proud to offer TEOXANE RHA filler products to help patients rejuvenate their face and restore the confidence they deserve. Learn more about what to expect with TEOXANE fillers here, including what side effects are possible and how long they may last.


The TEOXANE line of dermal fillers are revolutionary products designed to add volume to certain facial features, restore lost facial volume, and smooth out wrinkles and other static lines on the face. Like many other injectable fillers, TEOXANE products contain hyaluronic acid (HA), making their effects reversible if desired. However, the HA in TEOXANE RHA fillers is formulated to mimic hyaluronic acid found in the body almost identically. This allows the filler to stretch and flex with various facial expressions, giving patients an exceptionally natural look that’s unachievable with many other products.

Where can TEOXANE fillers be used?

TEOXANE is a highly versatile product line, with specialized fillers that are most often used to add volume and soften lines in the following places:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Lip lines
  • Around the mouth
  • Frown lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Under the eyes
  • Around the eyes
  • Forehead

Is TEOXANE RHA filler safe?

There are very few contraindications to receiving TEOXANE RHA injections, but Dr. Khorsandi will perform a thorough consultation to ensure you are a good candidate for treatment. Like most injectables, there are some possible side effects associated with TEOXANE RHA, which may include:

  • Redness
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Asymmetry
  • Undesired cosmetic outcome

Most men and women tolerate TEOXANE fillers very well and experience only a small amount of bruising and/or swelling, which resolves quickly on its own.

When will swelling go down after TEOXANE filler injection?

Depending on the location of the injections, the amount of filler used, the injector’s skill, and other factors, most patients can expect a mild to moderate amount of swelling after receiving TEOXANE. In the majority of cases, the swelling subsides almost completely after about 2 – 3 days.

How to reduce swelling after lip fillers

Following your filler treatment, Dr. Khorsandi may recommend the use of an ice pack to reduce pain and minimize swelling. Patients are also encouraged to avoid direct pressure to the treatment site and restrict strenuous physical activity for a few days after their injections. Once the residual swelling has gone down, which can take up to a week, patients will be able to enjoy their gorgeous new look.

How long do TEOXANE fillers last?

For the average patient, TEOXANE fillers will last about 15 – 18 months before a repeat injection is needed. This can vary based on individual patient factors. Should you begin to notice your features falling flat earlier than expected, additional filler can be used to refresh your look once again.
