Common Questions and Answers about Lip collagen before after

lip

Avatar n tn As part of my nightly routine, I've always put on lip balm before bed. However, late last year, my lips started to get more dry and chapped than usual, even itchy. They felt like sand paper and often developed tiny bumps. If rubbed hard enough, the bumps would produce a clear liquid. The edges of my lips also sometimes felt very raw and red. These symptoms would last around a week. At the time, I had been using just plain Burt's Bees Lip Balm for many weeks.
Avatar m tn Hello, This bump after injury to the lip can be due to hypertrophic scar of the lip. Hypertrophic scars are red bump like scars but do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound and they often improve in appearance after a few years. Treatment options include silicon gel sheeting, steroid injections, dermabrasion, collagen injections and laser resurfacing. You can discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a beauty therapist, and have been operating for 10 years, and in all this time i have never seen a case qiute like it. I have been waxing a lady for years on her chin and lip, and only recently she has experienced a red sore area develop on her chin,1 hour after waxing, which is stingy, and sore. which then scabs over and 2 days later peels away. I know this is not a burn, as my wax i use is tested before application, niether did my client say it was too hot.
Avatar n tn about 1-2 days after that, my gums started swelling and i got a blister on the top, very center of my tongue, a day after that, raised bumps on my lip started to appear..only on my upper lip. the most i've had are about 3 bumps at a time. It looks as if my lip was swollen, even the the actual bumps were hard..no pus, but blood underneath them. and it's only on the upper right side of my lip. somewhat looking like bad collagen injections.
Avatar f tn I had an angioma (red spot) removed from above my upper lip. They used a needle to cauterize the spot which was supposed to make it go away. It took a number of injections over several visits before the redness seemed to respond and fade a bit. But in it's place, I now have a triangular shaped divet about the size of the head of a pin where the skin is missing and no longer flush with the rest of my skin above my top lip.
Avatar f tn Because of the suddenness of the wrinkling, the placemnet of it (being where the electrolysis treatment was done) and the timing of it (during the healing process), I can't bring myself to believe that this could be caused by aging (which I thought happens gradually and in the form of crows feet and brackets before anything else).
Avatar n tn If the indented scar is fairly shallow, then dermabrasion or an ablative laser treatment might reduce the edges of the crater to produce less shadowing. Attempting to fill the area with collagen or a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane or Juvederm) might help a little, but would require repeated injections. To completely eliminate the depression, assuming the scar is small enough, then complete surgical resection of the depressed area would be appropriate.
Avatar n tn I went to the ER within a half hour and received 7 stitches on the skin above my upper lip vertically down to 1/2 way into upper lip. The stitches were taken out 4 days later. A week after the stitches were out I started using Mederma gel (recommended by a nurse) and it stung a little bit so I didn't use it on the part of my skin that was sensitive (I used neosporin on the upper lip and the skin just above the upper lip). Also noted I cannot wear sunscreen it hurts my skin.
Avatar n tn Leukemia, Lupus, Scleroderma, Multiple Myeloma or Collagen Vascular Disease. I'm presently beening evaluated for MS but starting to think that since the symptoms of these disease are similiar maybe MS isn't the culprit. The only change in my symptoms since Feb 24th have been easy bruising only on my forearms and thighs. These bruises appear out of nowhere (about the size of an m&m) and then they disappear as mysteriously as they appeared.
338416 tn?1420049302 The funny thing is that my dog managed to give me a swollen lip last night - jumped up and banged my lower lip. Right now it looks like I just got a collagen injection in my lower lip only. So at least I don't have to put up with my leg cramping and my lip swollen.
Avatar n tn Is the cortisone only a temp solution until something more permanent can take over? I'm also taking antibiotics. So far no results after a week. What will bring this sucker down permanently, aside from removing it surgically?
Avatar f tn There is a short vertical line on one side of my upper lip extending right down to the lip. I also have one pock mark under my nose. The skin texture looks dry and parched with many fine lines that don't extend all the way down to my lip. All of this is on the area that was worked on where the skin is also pigmented. The moisturizer, as you suggested, stops the itchyness.
Avatar f tn Hello , Last Oct 2010, i was diagnosed as having Chronic Hives. After blood work was done, It was found that my ANA was positive and TPO 1000. I have always known my ANA to be positive due to a blood test i took a few years back with a Hemotologist. I was going then for symptoms of Mild Depression/and Anxiety attacks that I was experiencing. I had been put on Lexapro and stayed on it for a year. About a year later, i came off of it, and was fine.
Avatar n tn I thought this because my partner, a female, has a history of cold sores, while I do not. She performed oral sex on me 6 days after having a cold sore. Issues (ALWAYS occuring on the right hand side) have occurred ever since. Over the past year, I get what feels like a cut/lesion/fissure on the right side inside my rectum. The cut is pre-ceding by itching, and sometimes local discomfort on the outside of my rectum (soreness).
Avatar n tn ) dont feel bad many people have scars the older you get the more it fades away as well.
Avatar n tn With me I have no EBV or other virus like many as I have read on medical forums such as this - although as a child I had viral meningitis. Surgical implant? Possibly the collagen used in a lip augmentation I had, and an implant my daughter has as well? Vaccinations? How to begin there? Medicines? Possible. Lack of {iodine}? Environmental would be difficult (- I have mercury fillings but my daughter does not. Killed that theory).
Avatar f tn I asked my dermotologist and she said not to worry- it will go back to normal after treatment is done. Can these wrinkles really go away? Are they reversible? I am scared stiff! I can't believe how this has changed my face. Please someone advise! Need another professionals advise or someone who has experienced this?
Avatar n tn I will also add that I originally saw a new doctor in my GP's office and she thought they were warts after examining me and wanted to prescribe Aldara, which after researching, I decided not to because of the cost and lack of effect most people claimed after using. Then I went to the Dermatologist and his diagnosis was NOT warts, but the pearly penile papules. I saw another Dermatologist(a PA this time) and he confirmed what the first Dermatologist's(an MD) diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Still, I think in this case, it's because of his severe lack of growth hormone, due to it's affect on collagen and connective tissue. Maybe they will want to wait until after he starts growth hormone shots to test for a genetic defect. I know Nick grew a lot in a very short span of time, and I know rapid growth can deplete cortisol very fast. Casey may need to up his Dexamethasone dose when he starts the shots.
Avatar f tn About two months ago I was listening to music with earbuds and noticed shortly after that I had slight ringing in my ears. I panicked after reading about tinnitus and how there is no cure. Went to a wedding later on and realized everything sounded way too loud. My ears hurt when people talked too loud and the music seemed terrible! I stayed out of the room a lot that night, feeling isolated and scared.
Avatar n tn I still after being off them for almost a month have burning pains all over my body. When they first started they were located under my bra strap. I thought that I was getting shingles. Then the next day they started everywhere, so then I knew it couldn't be shingles. I had a brain MRI last April, it was normal. C-spine showed bulging disk Lumbar MRI normal. My neuro doesn't want to do the LP because of my MRI were all normal, and feels that its not conclusive.
667923 tn?1421466324 I was told by my Endocrinologist to see why my face has so much numbness over the top lip, tongue and forehead. It is mostly all located on the left side of my face. When I get upset or fret @ something...my temple will hurt and pain will shoot through it. Usually, the left one hurts all the time, but the right one has had pain as well. I will look into a Pituitary center...
281565 tn?1295986283 I've had left shoulder problems for a very long time which also has never been figured out but I have one spot all the time that is the culprit and it will start to hurt to the touch and then I know the spasms will flare in my shoulder and neck shortly after. It can get very uncomfortable and at times very painful and last from anywhere from a few days to a couple of months and then just disappear only to show up again a few months later.
Avatar f tn I had the same exact thing for 8-9 months before I realized what it was. Cleared up after just 4 days of over the counter clotrimazole 1% cream.Turns out I also have tinea corporis with the typical rings that were really really faint in color so i didn't recognize it. I'd been really itchy all over my torso since about the time these painful boils started popping up over my face. The funny thing is that the boils didn't really itch.
Avatar n tn It has spread since the initial very sore red lump on the upper chin under my lip. This cleared after months and now is in three spots of the chin that are painful and hard to hide. I describe it as `tiny shards of glass`. Using a mirror outside in the sun once to look at them I literally saw a prism-like spectrum of colors on a tiny piece of this whatever it is.
Avatar f tn About 6 months ago I started getting small red bite-like bumps that would itch like crazy. They seemed to appear in the morning after sleeping. My first thought was bed bugs or some other creepy crawlie and we did a sweep of our home and found nothing. I share a bed with my fiance and our son sleeps in his own room. Neither of them have been getting the spots. The itchies would last about a week and when they're gone the skin pigment is slightly darker.
Avatar n tn who knows what was wrong with my poor eyes....so after seeing the eye doc. i got that weird prescription filled and never used it...i kept washing my eyelids with the baby soap morning and night, changed my pillowcases ALL THE TIME and changed my contact cleanser to the clear care solution (the kind that bubbles up) ----since then my red swollen eyes have gone back to normal (thank goodness!!!) but now i have fine lines alllllll around my eyes where they had swelled so bad in the weeks before...
Avatar n tn My mother doesn't remember me having chicken pox but with 4 children back to back..I guess you can lose track. I looked up Herpetic whitlow and my fingers do not look exactly like that. Mine do not blister up with fluid. They are not as raised or infected looking. You really don't even notice them on my fingers unless you are really looking and run your hand along them and press. When you press down across them they hurt like a sticker is in them.
Avatar m tn She did quite a lot of work, as I want to get it all done before starting tx. I bit myself in the lip, without it feeling it. It is looking quite nasty and I keep on putting stevia on it. It stings like hell the first few times, but I can already see that it is starting to help. Maybe the powder is tastier, I have never used it. I have used the pulverised dry leaves and the black liquid. I also got some clear drops from my sister in Paris, but I didn't like that too much.
