Swelling following Juvederm injections
Swelling After Juvederm
Juvederm is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural complex sugar that contributes to the volume and elasticity of the skin and is found naturally in all living organisms. Risks are few, as the materials contained in Juvederm filler are naturally produced in the human body and are therefore not allergy-inducing. There is a side effect of swelling at the injection site, but this is normal and subsides rapidly after treatment. This is temporary swelling which usually resolves in up to two weeks.

Juvederm and Swelling of Lips
Juvederm is a great filler especially for the lips. It often causes temporary swelling which usually resolves in up to two weeks. You only had 0.5cc of Juvederm which is very little product so I would try not to worry. If you are unhappy with the the results you can always have the Juvederm dissolved with Vitrase.
