Bruising after Juvederm in the tear troughs

Bruising is a common problem with injections in this area. Have you tried Arnica montana? Warm compresses can help also. As to the lack of improvement in the eye bags, you may need either more filler or a blepharoplasty to remove/reposition the lid fat if the fat deposits are generous.

Bruising after juvederm

Bruising from injections along the tear trough region is very common and unfortunately difficult to avoid completely.  It should improve over a few days.

Juvederm can certainly cause bruising

Juvederm can certainly cause bruising particularly if it’s several days after the procedure. And, bruising can take up to a month to completely go away. But, usually it will completely go away and have a nice result. However, there are times when further treatment may be necessary. If there’s too much Juvederm in a certain area your physician can dissolve the Juvederm away. But temporary swelling and bruising after Juvederm is not uncommon. Keep in mind that it is important not to get sunlight on the area. Always use a sun block and do not tan over a bruise.

Bruising after any eyelid injection

The skin of the eyelid area is thin and has many blood vessels that are not seen. Injections of Botox or fillers, can penetrate the vessel easily, at no fault of the doctor, and a bruise can occur immediately or delayed, even three to four days after.  bruises can take two and a half weeks to disappear. They may go away more readily with the help of warm compresses for a minute a few times per day (not too hot to burn yourself), vitamin K cream, Arnica montana and bromelain (the latter are found in the health food stores or pharmacy, but do not require a prescription).

Bruising after fillers under the eyes

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are commonly used to fill hollows under the eyes.  Bruising is a very common side effect because of the large number of small vessels in this area.  if is possible to get bruising on one side and not the other.  A bruise can take up to 2 weeks to heal up.   If you are concerned about the bruising, you should speak to your doctor.  There are some lasers, such as the V-Beam, which can be used to help bruises heal up faster.
