Bruising after Voluma injection
It will take 2 - 3 weeks for bruising to subside.
You can wear make-up.
You can say something like you had all allergic reaction.
Have the doctor check you - the swelling may also be Voluma that moved out of place.
This may need to be dissolve with an enzyme injection. Best wishes.
Swelling and Bruising After Voluma
Bruising can unfortunately occur with any filler. Injection technique can lower the likelihood of a bruise, but it is not possible for an experienced injector to not bruise any patients. Management of a bruise may require use of antibruising gel pads, herbal medications such as Arnica, and use of lasers to expedite the bruising.
Swelling after Voluma can be a result of the following factors
-Deep bruise- Not all bruises are at the surface and this localized swelling can take weeks to dissipate
-Injection technique- Injections of the product can create depositions which can create lumps if not properly transitioned. Since Voluma is not hydrophilic (does not tend to absorb water), Voluma tends to be a what you see is what you get type of filler.
Consult your treating physician for the best course of action.

Please consult your physician and apply cold compresses intermittently for ten minutes at a time until your appointment.
Swelling and Bruising Depends On The Person
The swelling is typically gone within 24-48 hours. If you experience bruising, it typically will be gone in approximately 5-7 days. We recommend applying makeup to conceal the treated area.
Bruising and swelling usually lasts up to two weeks
Bruising - duration depends on how big the bruise is
There are some things that you can do to minimize bruising:
1) Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil for 1 week prior to procedure (Note: I don't ask patients who are on aspirin or blood thinners for a medical reason to stop their medication for fillers)
2) Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before/after the procedure
3) Avoid getting overheated with exercise/sauna/spicy food for 24 hours after the procedure
4) Take an anti-bruising medication - arnica, excipial, etc
5) Icing after the procedure
6) sleeping with your head elevated for a few days after the procedure
There are some things that I can do to minimize bruising:
1) where appropriate, I can use a cannula (blunt-tipped needle)
2) If I see bruising, I can immediately apply pressure - this helps to keep the bruise small
3) We can use light/laser to hasten the resolution of bruising
