Vitamin E injection

It seems that injection is followed by some bruising and allergic reaction. I advise you to consult certified board physician as soon as possible just to receive treatment and prevent scarring. There are better options when it comes to fillers. Best of luck!

Lip burn

To soothe apply a cold compress for about 10 to 15 minutes. I recommend going to see a plastic surgeon. Those are not safe fillers. I use Juvaderm on my clients and they are happy with their results. 

Lips

I would recommend following up with a dermatologist for evaluation and in person physical examination.

V it E caused lip b urn

Thank you for asking about your vitamin E injections.

These are not accepted fillers for use in the lips. You may have  toxic reaction, an infection or an allergic reaction. Please see a plastic surgeon, your regular doctor for treatment or a dermatologist. Please do not have these injections again.

Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS

I got Vitame E injections to uppe rlip and have a burn. What can I do?

Thank you for sharing your question and photograph. Mesotherapy injections are at best ineffective and at worst can create complications, as you have unfortunately suffered.  I would recommend seeing an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon for wound care instructions so as to limit the damage and scarring that this may cause.  Best wishes.
