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?
