Bruising after Lip Injection
This can be the result of bruising and will improve in a few weeks. My advice is to have this looked at by your treating physician.
Lip filler - now brown, dry skin
Thank you for asking about your lip filller.
- You should contact the doctor who treated you -
- The dry skin may just be from the lip swelling and need only a lip salve.
- But I have seen herpes outbreaks that look identical. This will cause swelling that will not subside until the Herpes with treated.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Bruising and pigmentation after lip augmentation with fillers (juvederm, restylane)
These darkened areas, can be the result of bruising or heme pigments staining the skin, and will typically improve with time. If concerned, contact your injector. Best, Dr. Emer
