The pictures did not upload. Bruising and swelling can be reduced with technique and the use of Bruise Balm from Plato's Medicinals a day before and for 4 days after injection.

Bruising and swelling can happen after the injections.  The photos are not showing your face so I would suggest you post with new photos.  Please contact your physician to discuss the concerns.  Best, Dr. Green

I am unable to view the photos and cannot review your concerns.  It is normal to have swelling and/or bruising after any injectable filler.  It is always best to follow up with the provider who performed the injections to confirm that the side effects are normal for the injection that was done.

Swelling and Bruising After Belotero and Voluma

Unfortunately, your photos did not upload properly.  In general, there is minimal swelling with Voluma and mild to moderate swelling with Belotero.  With any of the injectable products, your dermatologist or plastic surgeon may disrupt a blood vessel leading to bruising.  I recommend calling and following up with your physician.  In many offices including mine, we offer a complimentary laser to treat a bruise which makes it disappear in 24 to 48 hours. 

Best set of luck,
