These side effects are transitory and usually will disappear within twelve to twenty-four hours. You should not have any pain following a treatment with injectable dermal fillers. If you do experience any pain, treat it with a pain reliever like Tylenol or aspirin. This pain will probably resolve within twelve hours.

This issue is best discussed with your physician prior to treatment.
