I had Juvederm injected into my lips four days ago, why have they gone back to normal so quickly? Could it be from smoking?

I had my lips injected with Juvederm four days ago. At the time, they were nice and full. Now, however, they have gone back to normal. Why did this happen? Could it be from smoking by any chance?

Juvederm can take several treatments to be fully effective. Smoking does cause higher metabolism, and smokers have been shown to lose the effects of Juvederm more quickly. As you repeat the treatments, the Juvederm will last longer. I would recommend getting these injections from a dermatologist, not an injector at some type of med spa or salon. This will better ensure proper injection and lessen any potential side effects or complications.

Not certain why they reduced so quickly, but smoking will not help the lines and will actually exacerbate them.
