Cannot lift upper lip after Restylane?
Restylane injected in the upper lip should not prevent the lip from lifting, unless it was mixed with Botox.
If this is a Botox effect, the duration (which is dependent upon the dose, the degree to which the muscles are used, and the size of the muscles injected) should be 3 to 4 months.

Sorry to hear about your adverse effect from your treatment. The effect that you are having is consistant with Botox, not Restylane. There is not any other explanation for the adverse event. Hopefully your muscle action in your upper lip returns very soon. Good luck and be well.
