That depends...: ...Entirely on what substance was injected. Medical grade fillers like Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm dissolve within 3-6 months.

Worrying about them is not productive; finding out whether the bump requires treatment is more beneficial. You need to schedule a diagnostic appointment with your dentist to evaluate the bump so its significance can be determined. ...Read more

I have a small painless bump on the surface of my upper lip. What could that be?
