Horrible Juvederm experience
The numbing cream should have done a better job of anesthesia. How much time did you spend massaging it into your lip?
Most likely the pain was due to the injection in the vermillion of the lip (Red, mucosal portion) which can be very tender. Injecting into the skin portion of the lip would have been less painful
In the future, it would be wise to have fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, etc) injected by a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon listed under "Expert Injectpr"
Lips are a sensitive area to inject regardless of what it is. Sometimes aside from numbing cream a dental block can be placed to make it more comfortable.
Does hyaluronidase sting?

Hope, in the end you are happy with the filler treatment and the duck lips go away.
