Slight Bruising Under the Skin After Juvederm

Bruising after fillers
Bruising can happen as a side effect of filler injection, It is impossible to completely avoid it. it should improve in a few days.
Bruising after Juvederm is possible
Bruising after Juvederm is possible. Usually ice at the injection site immediately after treatment will help minimize bruising. But, if you experience bruising, it may take a few days to go away.
Juvederm "Bruising" may NOT be bruising but a superficial Injection
Hyaluronic acid fillers (Juvederm, Restylane etc) should NOT be placed too superficially because they give off a bluish reflection (Tyndall effect) resembling bruising. This is very disturbing to some especially when placed in the thin area of the lower lid / Tear Trough.
The Juvederm can be dissolved with an enzyme (Hyaluronidase) which would probably solve the bluish / bruised discoloration.

Bluish color from Juvederm
The lump and bluish color you describe is from the Juvederm being placed too superficially. This is known as the Tyndall effect. The misplaced Juvederm can be dissolved and you will be good as new.
