Bruising After Jevederm - Denver, CO
I am a 58 year old caucasian woman and I wanted to...
It has been two weeks and one day since my appointment. I am very happy with the results, and I will do it again, but I want to share my experience with bruising from the jevederm. I had so much bruising around my mouth and, although it gradually faded a little every day, it lasted until this morning! I made a commitment to myself that I was going to post my experience with bruising on this website after it was all gone, so that I can be a source of comfort and education to others who might be freaking out over the excessive bruising that they were having from juvederm. I had no idea it would be so bad, and the truth is, I do bruise very easily on other parts of my body, so maybe this was to be expected. I had been researching online to see if other people experienced this type of reaction to jevederm, and to an extent, it was comforting to know that this was a common side effect. I guess I just want to tell other people that it DOES go away! During these two weeks, I had serious concerns that the bruises would never fade and I'd be one of the unfortunate ones with bad results. My nurse was compassionate over my concerns and she showed my phone photos to the doctor and they both said, don't worry, it looks great, you'll be gorgeous. So, two weeks and one day after the procedure, my bruises are finally all gone. I want to reassure others that it is not all that uncommon for bruises to take this long to go away, and to just be patient, and not freak out as I did. I hope my message will help others not worry so much! I love the results now and I would do it again, but next time I will plan my appointment with expected down time for bruising afterwards.
