Hi Veronica,

Persistant pain in your lips and big black bruising for 4 days after Juvederm injection of your lips may represent vascular compromise.  You should immediately see your injecting physician or someone who is an expert injector, do not wait any longer!!!  Good luck and be well.

Thank you for your question. Intense pain to the injection site is not common. Contact your injector and discuss your concern.
