17. An Explanation for the Awful Lumps of Skin
Many women who get lip injections complain of temporary lumps and bumps that emerge on the surface of their lips. These are a temporary mistake and they go away naturally, while in some rare cases, they need to be corrected. These lumps mainly occur when the filler is added extremely near the surface of the lips.
18. History of Cold Sores?
If you have an extensive history of cold sores, beware that these injections can lead to the onset of a severe cold sore. So, be sure to take some preventive medication at least two days prior to the treatment so you can avoid the illness.
19. What happens if you stop getting the injections?
In case you make a decision to stop getting lip injections, the lips are likely to return to their original shape. Most people believe that when you stop getting lip injections, the lips are likely to turn into saggy bags or shapeless skin riddled with wrinkles. That is not true at all, however, it is likely that the HA that has been infused into your lips will trigger more production of HA, causing your lips to naturally maintain the effects of your last injection and retain the large shape of your lips.
20. Understand the Risks

You need to consider various risk factors and side-effects, primarily vascular occlusion, before you take the final leap of faith on undergoing this procedure.
