Why do I have bumps and uneven lips after Juvaderm? (Photo)

I recently got my lips done with Juvaderm. The first couple hours after they looked amazing but when I woke up the next morning they were uneven, & bumpy. I started wearing lipstick immediately after because I was not made aware this could irritate them. Could that be why? It's been 4 days. I'm just wondering if this is normal & will it go away in a week??

Swelling  after lip injections is a normal reaction and could even be worse the next day like you described.  Juvederm takes approximately 2 weeks for the product to settle and for the swelling to subside. After two weeks if you are still experiencing lumpy and uneven lips i would return to your injector for an assessment.

What you have could be swelling - the lips tend to swell a lot and swelling is often uneven. Or it could be lumps of product. Wait 10-14 days after your initial injections and then see your physician if you still have any bumps left to assess the situation. Until then, keep your hands away from your lips and don't press on the bumps - that will help nothing and could even move the product around more.

hard to answer so lets wait to see if these issues improve over the next week. The bumps might be blood or poorly injected product..
