Had injection 10month ago, but I still feel lump and pain at the injection site, also feel pulling down my leg. Pls what can I do?

Hematoma: The lump could be a hardened blood clot under the skin as some bleeding might have occurred at the time of the injection. This is not a dangerous type of blood clot but if it has hardened it may not completely dissolve. It shouldn't cause any other symptoms, however. See your physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

I have undergone an extraction for my lower, first pre-molar. An inferior alveolar nerve block was given to me but since, there's pain at the injection site and reduced mouth opening. What should I do?

Not uncommon: Occasionally, for this type of injection, the muscles may go into spasm and there is also some local inflammation which produces the symptoms that you describe. Take some otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve (naproxen) or what you normally take for a headache. Warm rinses and external moist heat may help as well. This should pass shortly. Call your own dentist if still concerned. ...Read more

Injection trauma: The needles we use are extremely sharp and fine, but as they penetrate the tissue they may injure muscles, blood vessels or other tissues. This almost always quickly subsides (1-3 days) although I cannot give you a definite time frame. You can use warm salt water rinses and OTC pain medication such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve (naproxen) or what you would normally take for a headache. ...Read more

Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .

Does juvederm migrate? I've heard that juvederm can move from the injection site if you're not careful. Is that true? .

Not Far.: Juvederm can move a bit from the injection site, but not far. If you put pressure on the area you can displace it to the sides a bit and smooth it out (this can be helpful if you have lumps or bumps afterward). It does not move to other areas of the face or body because of connective tissues under the skin.
