I had elevess injections in my lips. The first couple of days it was swollen but then it went down. I was great for about 3 weeks and then they started to hurt so I started icing them. I thought it was normal, but the next day my lips were so swollen and i was in so much pain so i went to the ER.
It was only half of my lip that was swollen at first. but then it got worse and spread to both sides of my upper and lower lips. I have been having EXTREMELY painful treatments from my docotor to drain the puss. I have been on antibiotics for over a week now and im hoping that I will not have to have anymore needles stuck in my lips. I have been suffering severely from this reaction both physically and mentally. I can't go to work because I'm a waitress and no one would want to see this while they're eating.
PLEASE DO NOT GET ELEVESS INJECTIONS. I do not wish this pain and suffering on anyone. I beleive that this was no fault of my doctor. I believe that my body just started to reject the elevess and the results were terrible. Hopefully I look normal after this heals.
