Swelling/Bruising (early) from Fillers
I always tell my patients to not love their filler injections for 2 weeks. Swelling is very common and sometimes immediate. It can last 3-7 days and a good idea is to use cold compresses. Cold compresses may be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area but gentle massage might be necessary. Get Arnica gel if you can find some and apply a few times a day as well to help treat any swelling. Avoid any blood thinners. Bruising can also last 1-2 weeks. I don't recommend hyaluronidase this early and wait a few weeks until the swelling has resolved. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up a follow up appointment with your dermatologist.
Looks like bruising
Bruising can occur with any lip filler and yours will take time to resolve.
Prevention with avoiding aspirin or blood thinners is important.
Volbella and bruising.
This is common, as there are lots of blood vessels surrounding the area. V BEAM can certainly reduce the bruising by up to 3-4 days, however it may take up to 8-10 days before it completely disappears. Al the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
