Swelling after filler
Some amount of swelling is to be expected and may increase far beyond what it was when you left
the office on the day of the procedure. However, this swelling should subside within 7-10 days after the
procedure. With respect to your painful white spots on your upper lip, it is possible you have a viral
outbreak that is very common when procedures are performed on the face. I would recommend you
returning to your injector and being evaluated.
Ongoing Swelling after Juvederm Injection
Swelling is normal of lip injections. But, this does not look normal and appears to be a herpes infection. This needs to be immediately treated with prescription medication. I suggest contacting your injector.
I would suggest returning to your injector. Swelling occurs, but yours does not appear to be normal swelling. It may be a herpes simplex infection which will require treatment.

Juvederm and pain in lips
Swelling can be a normal part of the process for this type of lip injection but pain is not. I would return to your treating physician for examination. It is possible that you have an infection in that area causing you pain. Please keep us posted. Best, Dr. Green
