I had Juvederm injected into my lips 17 Months ago. A few months after having the injections, a lump appeared in my upper lip and it hurt. My doctor applied a massage and suddenly that lump blew up inside. It is smaller now, but I still have a number of many lumps. I am afraid. What should I do?
I had Voluma injected into my cheeks a little over a month ago. My right cheek is fine, but my left cheek is still hard, swollen, and now very red. I went to back to the person who injected me to show her my swollen cheek and she said nothing is wrong. It looks awful; I can't believe that this is normal. My husband thinks it is infected. What should I do?
I had success with Juvederm injections the first time around. I had the filler injected into my face to fill the holes caused by my acne. On my second attempt, however, I was shocked and displeased with the results. It has been a nightmare. I have pea-size bumps, doughnuts and severe bruising/scarring. The person who injected me damaged the my skin with the needle, and now the holes are bigger and very ugly. 2 wks and no improvement. What to do?
I have deep acne scars on my cheek. There are three in a row, so I had them filled with Juvederm. They looked great at first, but after 2 months they started to reappear. I went for a second session, and this time it was a nightmare. I now have a lump, bruising and more of a crater effect. What should I do? Why did this happen?
The first two chemical peels I had went well; I didn't have a problem. The third one was a medium peel, and instead of using sunscreen I wore Fair & Lovely cream. Now, I have white spots on my face. Could this be due to the cream, sun exposure, or both?
