Why do I have lines on my face after lip fillers? (photo)

I received lip fillers a few days ago, and the swelling has gone down, leaving my lips normal, but now I'm seeing lines from my nose to my mouth--creases that appear when I smile, but I obviously haven't been smiling for three days straight. Will the lines go away as my lips settle? I'm 25, and those line weren't there three days ago. Thank you~

Lip lines after filler

The photo suggests that filler was placed in vertical lip lines.
The lines will go away as the filler subsides.
  • there is so far no perfect lip line filler.
  • Juvederm and Restylane often cause lines
  • Belotero does not but it also does not last.
