Intermittent swelling of lips after injection
Hi, my lips have randomly swelled up on one side of my bottom lip after having juvederm 5 weeks ago. This has happened before at
Lip Swelling after Juvederm Injection
One reason may be that sun exposure is leading to recurrence of hsv virus or also know as cold sore. That would explain the unilateral swelling. Another less likely option is an allergic reaction although unlikely from the Juvederm because the entire lip should be swollen. Juvederm like other products is an hyaluronic acid fillers which acts as a humectant and draws water to it. If this keep happening in a certain area then it is possible there is excess product and may need to be dissolved. A picture would be helpful and you should check in with your provider who injected the lips
All the best

Juvederm is a great product for the lips. If you could post a photo it would be more helpful. It is possible it is from something that you are putting on your lips and sounds less likely that you are having an allergic reaction. You should return to your treating physician for examination.
