Juvederm and Side Effect
It is difficult to tell from the photo but I would be concerned that it is a vascular occlusion event and I would return immediately to your treating physician for examination and possible Vitrase to dissolve the product. Best, Dr. Green
It appears that you may be having a vascular occlusion event. It is very important that you are seen immediately by your doctor to have the filler dissolved.

I can't tell for certain, but this looks like a bruise. With a careful physical evaluation, it can be determined if this is vascular occlusion or not. I don't usually have patients complain of pain a day. later. That's why another evaluation is needed. Bruising can last 10 days after the procedure unless a laser is used to break up the bruise.
Please follow up with your physician
Please follow up with your physician for an in person exam and evaluation. It looks like a hematoma, but difficult to access from a photo.

Thank you for your question. It is difficult to determine if this a bruise or vascular occlusion. If this is bruising it can take up to 2 weeks to resolve. I recommend having this evaluated in person by your treating physician.
