PDL and Plato's Bruise Balm for Voluma bruising
Our office specializes in Voluma injections. For the bruising, use warm packs and apply Plato's Medicinals Bruise Balm to help with the swelling and bruising. PDL laser may also help.
Bruising 2 weeks post Voluma
Hard to say without photos. Some folks will bruise with placement of Voluma. This is especially true of patients who have consumed aspirin, ibuprofen, St. John's wart, gingko, Vit. E, and/or a host of other things known to promote bruising. It sounds by history that you may have a bruise that is still resolving itself. Our office likes arnica, (an herbal supplement). Please tell your experienced injector your concerns.
Bad bruises two weeks after Voluma
You can post photos so we can help more. But bruising and swelling are the two most common "side effects" from any fillers. While bruising is less common with Voluma, it can still occur in some people, especially if you took (or are taking) aspirin or similar meds, fish oils, etc. Arnica will sometimes help with bruising and swelling. You can always return to your injector for advice too. Sometimes we treat people with Laser Genesis for bruising and that helps break up the blood there and helps bruises go away faster. But really, with some people it's just a matter of time and patience.

I had voluma 2 weeks ago, and still have bruises, like old blog inside. What can I do?
This completely depends on the patient and the details of the injection. If a patient is on any sort of blood thinner including NSAIDS, Aspirin or some over the counter herbal vitamins they will bruise easier than other patients. Also, volume requires a deeper injection with sometimes aggressive molding of the product which can lead to some trauma in the area where it is injected. I don't know if your particular situation is normal since you did not post any photos, but you should see your PS and make sure that everything is okay.
Post Voluma Bruising, what Do I Do?
I suggest posting photos to see if we can give proper advice. It is not normal to have "bruises" two weeks after fillers. Best, Dr. Emer.
Voluma and bruising
Voluma is a fabulous product and usually has little or no bruising. I would return to the physician who injected me if there was still bruising. Please return there. Perhaps the physician can V-Beam the area if it is just bruised. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Voluma and facial cosmetic injections.
