I had juvederm injected into my upper lip. I had deep lines above my lip that I really hated. She suggested that I also put some in the "smile lines" beside my mouth, which I decided to do. I swelled and bruised while I was still in the chair. She quickly gave me an ice pack and told me this was normal.
16 days later I am still bruised and slightly swollen. People stop me daily to ask what happened to me. Where the bruising is worst is my right side beside my mouth and I can feel a lump where the injection was done. As the bruising is finally starting to fade - it is now that lovely green/yellow tinge, it is being replaced with a white patch of skin (way lighter than the rest of my skin).
I look awful and would never have had this done if I knew this was a possibility. I have had to miss almost 2 weeks of work, because there is no way I could go out of the house looking as I did. i look as if I have been beaten or in a bad car accident.
Is this a rare result?
My Doctor: name not provided
be aware that this could happen to you.I was told that I wouldn't want to go back to work after having Juvederm injected because I would feel frozen like going to the dentist. I would be fine the next day and any bruising could easily be covered with makeup. No amount of makeup could hide the dark purple bruised that covered my lips and cheek. Even after 16 days, the makeup doesn't hide it. I have spent a fortune on coverup trying to hide it.
