Massaging Lip After Juvederm Injection

I had 3 injections of Juvederm over 3 weeks and finally have the results I want, except for a couple of bumps on the upper lip. Can I massage them out and/or reshape them? If so, when can I start?

Juvederm injections to the lips - Los Angeles

Start immediately to massage the lips to avoid any uneven areas. Juvederm lip augmentation is an excellent option to contour lips. I perform these very often with amazing results. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles

Massage for the lips

Yes -   you can try some light massage with aquaphor - if it persists see your doctor in further consultation.

Massage after lip augmentation

I recommend that you do not massage the filler as you do not want to press too hard and/or move the filler into the wrong place. Lumps and bumps usually resolve on their own, once the filler starts to get incorporated with your own skin tissue. It would be best if you book a follow up appointment with your injector in 1-2 weeks, and he/she can massage any residual lumps or bumps at that time.

Many experienced and expert injectors prefer that you not massage or reshape the treated area without discussing with them first. The injector can then guide you on the appropriate massage or request that you come in so he/she can do the massage.

Filler bumps in upper lip

Bumps in the upper lip after filler injections usually can be rubbed out during the initial post -treatment phase. This time frame varies, but is usually for only the first few days after treatment. You may want to check with your doctor. Sometimes, Vitrase or Wydase can be used to melt some of it.

Bumps from lip filler can be massaged out

Especially if using a low viscosity filler like volbella- these bumps can easily be massaged or pressed out to make them flatten. Because the lips are so thin sometimes fillers can cause bumps there. Fortunately, this is easily treated.

Lips lips and more lips

I do prefer my patients to massage the lips in the early stages to smooth out any bumps. I would check with your surgeon though as some vary by this. 

I am glad you are happy. Nothing better than nice full lips!

Hope this helps.

Best of luck,

Lip enhancement

If you have questions or concerns, it is recommended that you contact your provider as soon as possible! I have significant experience working with lip enhancers and they are a safe and effective treatment when applied by a trained professional. While it takes about 2 days for the swelling to go down, the results are long-lasting. Most clients need 1-2 syringes for a dramatic effect, but some require more. This depends on the amount of product you need to achieve your desired lip volume.  Lip augmentation requires a great deal of precision and skill and can really alter the balance of your face when done poorly. Best of luck!

Massaging of Lips After Juvederm Injection

I would not recommend you messaging your lips after injection.  I would book appointment to see your physician within 1-2 weeks if not sooner.  All the best.

Massage after Juvederm Injection

If placed well Juvederm will settile very nicely with normal use of the mouth.  Thus any asymetries usually will correct over the first week or two. Massaging lips after Juvederm is only beneficial in the first 48 hours. If the bumps are visible or bothersome you may want to return to your physician and discuss your concerns. We see our clients a two weeks to address any of these concerns.
