Time: You need time to heal. The other issues have little value at this point.

24hrs after injection: The lips are very vascular. Bruising is a common side effect. I recommend no anti-inflammatories, lots of ice, and no alcohol consumption. Arnica and vitamin K gels can help speed up the process along with antioxidant serums. You can always discuss with your injector as IPL has also been shown to speed up recovery. Hope you enjoy your new lips

Swelling/filler: Swelling after injections is not unheard off. Follow your injectors post procedure instructions which may include using a cool compress.
