How long does it take for lip piercing take swelling to go down?

Sooo I have snake bites yesterday by a professional piercing studio in SLC and my lip pretty swollen, does anybody know how long it will take for the swelling to go down? Dank.Oh, and I already know to use ice (will not work) makes flushing with saline solution (none) and rinse with unusual salt water (it even worse), so if you have any ideas, please let me know.

  1. I also have snake bites. It took about a week to go for mine down. Sometimes they would still swollen, that after only about what I did. Ibuprofen works best for me.

  2. I have a labret piercing site on 8 and the swelling is now gone. So I’d say about five days, but it may take up to two weeks. But I would not say that the ice will not work. I used ice and I think it definitely helped the swelling and it helped the pain. Mine swelled up the day after I pierced it and I must say that the three days is even worse: / I rinse the mouth with no iodized sea salt once a day, I rinse the mouth with water after I eat. I use crest pro health mouth wash once a day, I have antibacterial soap on the piercing in the shower and I help ice on the swelling and pain. But I think you should definitely see the swelling go four or five days (:
