Swelling, bruising, and cold sores after Juvederm
Thank you for your question Roxie50. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Juvederm is a product used to enhance various facial features. After any injectable treatment there are risks of swelling and bruising, such effects can be minimized by application of cold compresses such as ice packs. Bruises can be treated with lasers, which we routinely do in the office. Some people are susceptible to cold sores, especially around the mouth. This can be treated with valacyclovir (Valtrex). If this happens to my patients I recommend taking prophylactic valacyclovir before and after future treatments to prevent outbreaks. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Bruising After Juvederm
Looks like a localized bruise. Since it isn't painful, it is unlikely to be a cold sore which sometimes can occur in patient prone to cold sores. I would wait until follow up and most likely it will resolve
I recommend following up with your injector. Bruising and swelling are common after filler injection and can last 7-14 days. Patients who are susceptible to cold sores (fever blisters) can develop one after lips injections. This can be treated with Valtrex (valacyclovir).
