Juvederm Lip Injections - Help!

Hi guys,

I just wanted to know if anyone has had lip injections before? I just got Juvederm in my lips today and I look like a duck! How long does the swelling last? I'm so upset. The bruising is bad too! How am I going to go to work tomorrow? I look sooo weird. My lips are uneven and my upper lip sticks out a lot. I'm never doing this or anything else again!

Any encouragement, experience or advice would be great.

Thanks!

No advice on the lips but I had an allergic reaction to food once and my top lip was swollen and red it was bad it lasted 2 days but you can use that one for your work.

Did you try ice. I thought that i read that it can last a week..
Remember the movie first wives club when Goldie Hawn had her lips done..
Put light lipstick on them to knock them down . More nutral, not glossy..

Wish i could help...

I thought about saying I had an allergic reaction! Great idea. Well I will tell the guy I'm dating that story if it's still bad next week. I have a huge trip to go on next week also, I hope this doesn't bring me down (it already kinda is). The bruising is better today, but I found a better way to describe myself now "platta-puss" (sp?)! HAHA Well at least I can laugh at myself for this one. I tried concealer and it looked less noticeable - Thank you for the advice! So you heard this duck look can last around a week?

Hey girl, I think I just accepted you into my yahoo group. Let me know if not. In the pictures it's hard to tell, but in person you can tell! haha I wish this turned out better. I have always wanted a full upper lip. I guess it's like that Chris Daughtry song: "Be careful what you wish for....cuz you might just get it all!!!" HA!

Please look at my BA pics too!

IT WILL GET BETTER!! I went through the same thing- I had bruising for a week...it does go away and your lips will get smaller and less bruised of course. Ice them and massage the lips and that will help.

I had Juvaderm in my lips one time, and I bruised up really bad. I put ice on it the first 24 hours for the swelling, and then I put warm compresses on the black and blue marks. That allowed the blood to break up and go away quicker. Just keep doing it. Not too hot though, be careful not to burn your mouth! Just run a washrag under very warm water and wring it out well.

How long does it last, and how much does it cost usually?

It will get better!!!! My sister and I both have had Juvederm and Restylane at various times and we both have had that Bart Simpson look! It may be worse in the morning because it you might swell after laying down all night. Put some ice on your lips it will get better but might take a couple of days. Good Luck!

Yes, arnica cream or gel does help with swelling and bruising!

Actually they look awesome!
Keep icing...your swelling will go down and you are going to love those lips.
The more you have it done the longer it will last.
I was getting mine done every 6 months .....now I have them done every
year and a half..
No kissing for you for 4 days and you shouldn't massage them....my doctor strongly discourages that...you can actually move the product ....very very gentle pressure.

I have had this done thrice! love it!

twice juvederm, once restylane...

the swelling seemed to go away faster the first two times... but then again, i waited one year between those, and only about 4 months between my 2nd & 3rd time!

All in all, swelling/pain lasted up to 3 days, some mild discomfort thereafter...

as for pricing, i paid about $400 for the first 2 times and got a half-off deal on the third

i am liking the restylane better than juvederm... seems to give a more pronounce effect, whereas the juvederm seemed to not be so noticeable after a couple weeks...

just my humble opinion, though!
