Is this normal appearance a few hours post juvederm injection? (photo)

Your lips look within the normal after injections in terms of bruising and swelling .
Please consult with your doctor for any concerns .
Swelling and bruising are common after lip injections and can last up to two weeks. I would recommend ice to the area. Some patients find the use of the supplement Arnica to be helpful with bruising. It can be purchased at local vitamin stores.
Bruising and Swelling
Your lips look perfectly within the range of normal bruising and swelling after injection. If there is any further concerns I wouldn't hesitate to follow up with your treating physician for reassurance.

Swelling is certainly common. Bruising less so but does happen, even in the most experienced hands. The fact that you don't have significant pain makes a vascular occlusion (which by the way, is exceedingly rare) less likely. If this was done a day or two ago, I would ice and wait for the swelling to resolve. If you are at all concerned, I wouldn't hesitate for you to call your physician to make sure everything looks normal. Best of luck and I am sure you will be happy with the results in the end!

Bruising and swelling is very common after injections. I would suggest you follow up with your injector 2 weeks after your procedure to make sure everything is well.
Juvederm and the Lips
It appears from the photo that you have some normal bruising which occurs with any cosmetic injections. I would recommend Arnica to help relieve the bruising. Best, Dr. Green
Post Juvederm injection to lips
At this point I would not worry, the bruising seen in your photos appears to be normal, and can happen with any injectable. It does not appear that your lip vasculature is occluded. Good luck!
Juvederm to the lips
It is not uncommon to see swelling or bruising in the lips post injection. These symptoms should subside within 7-10 days.
Juvederm to lips
You look fine and have nothing to worry about. All appears normal. Possibly a visit to your doctor will calm your nerves. My Best, Dr Commons
Post Juvederm Injection-Lips
Thank you for your question. This looks completely normal. It is common to experience some bruising in and around the mouth after and injection treatment. Based on the photos you submitted, there does not appear to be any sign of vascular occlusion or blockage. The area would be white, painful, then bluish in color.
I hope this helps!
