Painful red bumps on lips after filler
Hello. Many thanks for your questions. You require an examination by a Doctor to accurately determine the problem. The symptoms sound like a viral infection. Therefore, apart from going to a cosmetic doctor to get an examination it may be worth trying an antiviral medication rather than antibiotics.

This is a herpetic infection and should be treated as such. Please search for a doc with experience with injections and how to treat herpetic infections.
Painful Bumps After Juvederm Volift
Juvederm Volift is a Juvederm product that is available in Europe but not in the United States at this time. I do not have experience with this product, but I do with Juvederm and Voluma. Sometimes people get cold sores after treatments in or around the lips and anti-viral work well in these cases. Sometimes nodules form in the area which need to be removed. Sometimes the filler can be completely dissolved using hyaluronidase. Without an in-office exam I am not able to provide specific recommendations for you. I recommend scheduling a follow up appointment with the doctor who did your treatment, or possibly other doctors for further opinions. Good luck!
Red Lip Bumps After Juvederm Voluma
In the United States, Juvéderm Voluma is not yet FDA-approved for the lips. Nevertheless, there are some doctors (and nurses) who inject Voluma into the lips. Voluma is the thickest version of Juvederm and ahould be injected very deeply, almost on top of the bone in cheek. This thicker form of Juvederm, if injected too superficially, can result in the problems you're experiencing. It could be your body expelling the Juvéderm Voluma or you could be having a herpetic reaction. If this is the case, you may need to take an antiviral. Please follow up with your injector or if he or she is not being responsive, your primary care physician. Best of luck.
