Bruising and swelling after juvederm
Use PICA for Bruising and Swelling after Filler Treatments
While certain techniques help to prevent bruising and swelling, fillers such as Juvederm often stimulate swelling for several days after a treatment. When this happens, I recommend:
Patience: Try not to worry. After 3-7 days, the tissue often settles and appears more even. If it doesn't, please check in with your provider.
Ice: Ice can help reduce swelling
Compression: Apply direct pressure to areas that appear asymmetrically swollen
Arnica and anti-histamines: To expedite healing, take oral arnica supplements and an anti-histamine such as Zyrtec daily for 5 days
Juvederm 3 days post
You will know the answer 7-10 days after the injection whether it is bruising and swelling or overfilled. If it is overfilled, then a hyaluronidase injection can be used to dissolve it, such as Vitrase or Hylenex.
To be sure, return to see your injector or see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
