Severe bruising-Juvaderm Ultra cannula technique- Should I be concerned? (photos)
Doctor Answers 5
Bruising and haematoma
You will need to see your injector for advice, as each one has their own protocols. It will take up to 7-10 days to settle down. Early bruising can be treated with V BEAM vascular laser to reduce the duration of bruise, however it will not treat the 'lump'.

Hope this helps,

Hematoma from injections
It looks like the injector may have caused some trauma to one of the many blood vessels around the mouth. This trauma leads to a hematoma, which is the "lump" you are referring to. It is a collection of blood or a big bruise under the skin. The lips are very vascular and this can happen to anyone. It will take some time for the discomfort and bruising to go away. You can try some warm compresses and Tylenol for discomfort. Good luck with recovery.

If you have severe pain with the bruising I would definitely consult with my treating physician for examination and treatment. I don't rely on cannulas since they are not precise in where the product goes and I have much better results with a small needle directly placed into the location that needs the filler.
