Juvaderm and bruising. Could this be some type of adverse reaction?
Thank you so much for your question and photographs. Bruising is a very common occurrence after the injection of any filler and does not represent a complication, per se.
If your injection was fairly deep in the nasolabial folds then it can take a few days for the bruising to show up at the skin surface. Icing at this time will not be very helpful but many patients have achieved good results with Arnica Montana supplements. Another technique that we find useful is treating the bruises with "Broad-Based Light" therapy or "Intense Pulsed Light". -these energy based modalities seem to "break-up" the bruise and aid in resolution. Check back with your injector to make sure that all is resolving as expected. Best wishes.
Juvederm injections and bruising
- The discoloration you are seeing is almost certainly bleeding from the injection that has now come to the surface.
- It will fat in time.
- Let the doctor who injected you know - so future injection techniques can minimize your bruising.
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.
Juvederm Injections and Bruising
Juvederm is a fantastic product for facial injections. Like any facial injection, the most common side effect is bruising. To prevent facial bruising I always recommend Arnica before and after the procedure. In advance of the procedure I always recommend stopping aspirin, vitamins, motrin, fish oils or any blood thinners which can contribute to bruising. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Juvederm and facial injections.

I would contact the office where you had your injections to schedule a follow-up to put your mind at ease.
In the future, you can take the natural homeopathic remedy, "arnica Montana" to help decrease the risk of bruising and/ or swelling.
