Pain and swelling after Restylane Injections
The pain and swelling that you are describing weeks after your injection is not typical. It is unclear to me if you are having an allergic reaction of some kind. Please return to your treating physician for examination. Please let me know what happens.
Pain and Swelling after Restylane for "smoker's lines"
I like to use Juvederm or Belotero for lips, Belotero or Restylane diluted to half its usual concentration, and sometimes just 4 units of Botox to the skin above the lip for "smoker's lines" or the lines on the upper or lower cutaneous lip. For long-lasting to permanent benefit, radiofrequency with Aluma is fantastic. Juvederm and Beletero don't swell much at all.
