Just had lip dermal fillers with teosyal 5 days ago.
Top lip at both sides feel hard and bottom lip sides feel hard, right side of bottom lip thicker than the left side. Also top lip broke out in cold sores, and lips tingling. Wish I hadnt bothered.
Teosyal is not a brand we use at The Victorian Cosmetic Institute. It is a hyaluronic acid based product. The irregularities that you are experiencing however are most likely to be a result of bruising/swelling and injector technique. It is still early days for you yet, and things may improve with time, or you may require a touch up. For those with cold sores (herpes simplex virus) we do recommend a dose of anti-viral medication on the day of the procedure to reduce the chance of this.
