Bruising and swelling is a common side effect of lip injections. It can take up to two weeks for all swelling and bruising to subside. Icing the area will help reduce some of the swelling. If you're unhappy with your final results you can have it dissolved with hyaluronidase.

It can take two weeks for any swelling or bruising to resolve after Juvederm injections for lips. If you are concerned about your lips, please return to your doctor for assessment.

Depending at what day you are post lip injections, I would recommend cold compress 5-10 minutes every 30-60 minutes for the first couple of days and OTC Arnica to decrease some of the bruising. The swelling and bruising in your lips normally resolve 1-2 weeks after injection. Hope this information helps.
