Are There Any Side Effects To Face And Lips Treatments?
In the case of both of treatments, the side effects are minimal. The injections themselves cause very mild discomfort and with Botox, there may be very slight bruising at the sight of the injection which can easily be hidden with foundation cream. In one percent of cases, patients may experience the lowering of one eyelid or a slightly asymmetrical facial expression, but, even if it occurs, this will be barely noticeable and only temporary.
Juvederm treatments may cause mild swelling, redness, tenderness and itching, but nothing which can’t be treated by applying a little ice and which will usually last no longer than 24 hours.
