Blue Discolouration Nose Area Teosyal?

L.S. I had Teosyal injected in my nasal folds today and other than immediate bruising I now have severe blue discolouration on and around my nose. I look like I've been punched in the face. In addition, a small part of my lip still has not fully regained sensation. Can you tell me how long the blue discolouration will take? Make-up does not cover it and if it takes a few days, I will have to take time off work. Thanks in advance, Anna

Swelling and bruising are common side effects of injections.

Swelling and bruising are common side effects of injections. Swelling and bruising can take up to 2 weeks to fully resolve. Apply traumeel cream to the area to decrease bruising - bought at any natural health food store.

If it does not clear up visit your injector after 2 weeks and discuss treatment options.

Hope this Helps.

Discoloration with Teosyal

It maybe just some bruising. It may take a few days. It is unlikely to be a Tyndall effect which is a blue color to the skin. If it was put superficial it might be a Tyndall effect but very unlikely
