A Lot of Bruising from Local Injected Around Eyes Before Pixel C02 Laser. Is This Normal? (photo)

Went to a qualified plastic surgeon here in Buenos Aires. Used numbing cream pre Pixel C02 laser, then he injected local anesthesia around my eyes and mouth (PAINFUL!). It immediately bruised my eyes. Looks as if I was punched in the face. Today is day 2 and my eyes are VERY swollen. Is it due to injections or laser done on my eyelids. A doctor's opinion about this please. Is that standard protocol in the States and is the bruising normal? I'm adding pictures for your reference.(adding photos)
