Sore lips after injections.

Thank you for your question. Soreness after lip injections is common and can last approx. 2 weeks. If your lips remain sore after this time period contact your injector and discuss treatment options. 

Best.

Juvederm in lips causing soreness

+1

It is not unusual when the lips are filled to develop some chapping (occurs when swelling occurs), although this always subsides. Of course be diligent with using chapstick till this resolves. The bruising is always a possibility and can lead to some firmness of the lip ; you can try to massage it out if its not too painful. If there are any problems after 2 weeks (enough time for bruise to resorb), then see your injecting physician.
