On 9/18/08 I had Elevess injected into the lines above and below my lips to get rid of the lines (I would be happy with the lines again if I only knew!). The area above my lips got puffy and lumpy immediately. I was told to massage it but have found out from several sources that you should not massage the gel. As a result, the gel moved into my upper lip.
Now my lip is swollen looking along with it being puffed out above the lip. I have also noticed recently some red/purplish discoloration at some of the injection sites.
The lumpiness and puffiness is finally starting to subside and hopefully I will look normal again very soon. I also hope the discoloration goes away.
Definitely, NOT worth it.
