What is this line on my face after Juvederm Voluma? Dr said he's never seen anything like it. (Photo)

Discoloration and hyperpigmentation of the face can be reduced with Melarase AM and PM creams
Melarase creams and q switch laser for Voluma facial staining
Looks to me that the bluish color is a result of bruising. It does not appear to be from a tyndall effect.
Sometimes bruising can last up to 2 weeks. Do you take vitamin supplements, fish oil, or other herbal supplements? If so, bruising can be slightly worse after injectable procedures.
I hope this helps.

Voluma is a fabulous injection for the mid face. The line appears to be bruising or hemosiderin from the injection itself. I suggest you take Arnica to see if it goes away faster. This side effect should go away with time. I suggest you consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Voluma and facial injections for the best cosmetic results.
Pigment after Voluma.
All the best,
