Pain and Swelling after Restylane for "smoker's lines"
I like to use Juvederm or Belotero for lips, Belotero or Restylane diluted to half its usual concentration, and sometimes just 4 units of Botox to the skin above the lip for "smoker's lines" or the lines on the upper or lower cutaneous lip. For long-lasting to permanent benefit, radiofrequency with Aluma is fantastic. Juvederm and Beletero don't swell much at all.
