Can Juvederm injections around the lips result in bruising?

Patients who want to combat the signs of aging are often interested in non-invasive ways to do so. This typically includes speaking with a Board-certified dermatologist at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology regarding cosmetic injectables.

Cosmetic injectables include several different types of products that are injected into the skin or muscles to add volume and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, patients may also choose products such as Juvederm to address thin lips. While any injectable treatment may result in bruising or discomfort at the injection site, this is typically mild and temporary. Risk of side effects is minimized in the capable hands of an experienced dermatologist. Juvederm and all the injectables used by Drs. Mary Lupo and Katherine Holcomb at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic & General Dermatology are safe, effective, and approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Our team is educated on how to provide injections to achieve desired results while reducing the likelihood of side effects.

Juvederm is used on various areas of the face. Not only can it plump up the lips and give them a fuller appearance, but it can also treat parenthesis lines, the cheek area, and other fine lines and wrinkles around the face. Juvederm can be safely used in conjunction with other cosmetic injectables including collagen stimulators, neuromodulators, and other dermal fillers. In fact, Dr. Lupo and Dr. Holcomb can combine several treatments during one session to provide patients with an “injectable facelift” opportunity! We work closely with our patients to determine what they would like to achieve, and develop a treatment plan that works in line with their goals, budgets, and schedules.
