Thank you for your question sweetperfume123. Juvederm is a great treatment to enhance the lips. Swelling and bruising are possible after any injection. Applying cold compresses such as ice packs can reduce bruising and swelling. Everyone experiences a different level of swelling. Most people apply ice packs for a few minutes at a time because it can get too cold and we do not want to have a freezer burn on the skin. I have my patients follow up two weeks after a treatment once the swelling has subsided to take photographs and assess the results. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
