Bruising after lip filler
Although this is quite a significant bruise, it can happen, and like all bruises will pass in typically 5-10 days. Icing the first day is useful, as is sleeping on an extra pillow, ideally on your back. Avoid exercise, alcohol, aspirin, and NSAIDs the first 2-3 days in your case, as well as saunas, jacuzzi, steamrooms.
Bruising post lip injection
This can occur and is not uncommon.Usually I tell patients ice and keep your head elevated.It will pass.
I tell my patients that bruising after fillers is typically the rule and not the exception. You may want to try arnica and ice to help reduce the bruising. Also, I tell all my patients to use Kat Von D concealer...her makeup line has some of the best concealers out there! Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Although we would all love to guarantee fillers without bruising, it does happen. If you choose to have Restylane again, avoid all NSAIDS, vitamin E, fish oil, green tea etc. the week before to minimize your chance for bruising.
Is this bruising normal after restylane lip fillers?
50% get some form of ecchymosis. Use ice and gentle massages. If not resolved in 2 weeks than see your injecting doctor...
Bruising after lip fillers
Bruising is an unfortunate but totally common side effect from all fillers. Yours is very dark but not something to be concerned about. It's just unfortunate and will be there for a few weeks most likely as it goes away and lightens.
