How long before lip swelling reduces to expected results? (photos)

I received Juvederm 1 syringe to bottom and upper lips. I had done 3 months ago and it didn't swell at all but I felt effect was gone. The upper lip has swollen significantly a few hours after. Is this normal?

The swelling form fillers can last up to two weeks.  If you are still swollen and unhappy with the results you should consider removal with Vitrase.  Best, Dr. Green
