in the photo above, I think your lips look really great! I'm not able to see the white bumps on your lips on my screen. That doesn't mean they aren't there though- They are not likely caused by the juvederm, but could be some other skin condition. They are not stretch marks.
I do see just a little bit of darkening in your lips- this could be bruising but it's unlikely- I've had some patients bruise (light mark for a couple months) but it's very unlikely.
Many people don't examine their lips closely until after they have had a treatment (like filler) so it's possible that there was some discoloration on your lips even before the treatment.
As with any concerns that you may have, return to your injector and discuss things with them. They know you and your medical history well and can do a physical exam on this area .
Hope this helps!
