Typically the swelling and bruising from Juvederm injections under the eye should dissipate with in the first week. I have my patients stop any regular routine of aspirin or vitamins that may interfere with this process and cause prolonged bruising. You should see improvement daily. I also recommend arnica gel or sublingual tablets for those who have high bleeding tendencies. I hope this is helpful to you and wishing you a quick recovery!
Generally, bruising and swelling resolves within a week for most patients. Rarely, it can take up to two weeks to fully resolve. In the meantime, you can use arnica to help with the bruising and ice the area to help with swelling. Ask if your dermatologist has a pulsed dye laser at his or her office. Resolution of bruising can be expedited by using this laser.
The rate at which bruising and swelling subsides varies a great deal from patient to patient after facial shaping with fillers like Juvederm, Perlane and others marketed here in the US. Ice therapy and Arnica 12-C are recommended to our filler patients as ways to speed this process along.
If all goes as planned, swelling typically resolves by 1 week and bruising within 10 days. Arnica can help with bruising; you may also consider a cover-up/makeup for camouflage.
If you continue to have significant swelling at 2 weeks, I would advise you to consult your treating physician.
This will be worse in the morning than at night.
Manual lymphatic drainage, Ice compresses and arnica ointment and arnica tablets may be helpful.
Typically this resolves within 7 days. Extensive bruising may last longer.
You may experience temporary swelling, mild discomfort/tenderness of the injected area/s, redness, lumps, mild bruising, and possible itching. Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and are short lasting.
Thank you for your question. Some patients will
experience mild swelling and bruising for up to 7 to 10 days, which is considered absolutely
normal. To minimize bruising, a homeopathic remedy such as Arnica, which is available at most drug
stores, can be
applied topically. Ice can also help. If within a few days you are still concerned, you
may wish to follow up with the injector. Although individual
results will vary and nothing can
guarantee that you will have no bruising after a filler injection,
before your next treatment, avoid anti-inflammatory drugs (Motrin,
Advil, Ibuprofen, etc.), aspirin, vitamin E, ginseng, and ginkgo biloba
week prior to your appointment.
Swelling is very common for fillers such as Juvederm. The under eye area is sensitive and quite susceptible to bruising and swelling. Both should diminish within a week.
It’s unusual for patients to develop significant bruising
and swelling following the use of injectable fillers. Never the less this
complication may occasionally occur following these injections. Bleeding,
bruising and swelling aren’t usually related to the filler material, but
instead are related to the injection technique and the patients’ clotting
this situation arises bruising and swelling usually resolve in 7 to 10 days but
may takes as long as three weeks to completely resolve. Under these
circumstances anything that minimize the inflammatory response might speed the
process. Ice and steroid treatments might be helpful for this reason.
you’ve developed significant swelling and bruising following this procedure,
consultation with your surgeon is appropriate. Your surgeon should be able to
formulate a plan that addresses these concerns.
The area under the eyes is delicate, and generally swelling and puffiness can last a little longer than other areas. Give it a good two weeks before you judge your results. You should avoid St. John's Wort, gingko bilboa, aspirin and ibuprofen. Don't touch the area that you've had treated and keep your head slightly elevated while sleeping, as well as try arnica supplements. A cold compress can also help.
