I had juvederm injected to the lines on the sides of my mouth...I feel SLIGHTLY like a chipmunk. Not bad as the lines I can still feel swelling and slightly see it. But should I expect that this will go down for a more natural look? It is just slightly that I feel like this and I don't want to look like a chipmunk!
How Long for Juvederm Swelling to Go Down for Lines on Sides of Mouth?

Juvederm swelling is temporary
If this is from swelling it will go down within the first few days of your treatment, with a little residual swelling (that you will probably love!) lasting another week or so. If it lasts longer you may have had too much product injected. It can be removed with hyaluronidase, an enzyme that dissolves Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane.
Swelling and Juvederm
You did not mention when you had the injections? If you had them recently, then more than likely the swelling will subside in a few days. If you notice swelling persisting, this may be due to the chemical breakdown of the product which occurs through water absorption.
On average the Juvederm swelling or edema can lasts for a few weeks. I have seen it last for months rarely. Discuss with your injector of choice to determine the risk/ benefit ratio.
