About 26 hours ago, i had the fine lines around my lips filled in with Silk.

I have been icing. I have a little swelling but no bruising. Will I still bruise?

Bruising Following Filler


Bruising occurs when there is injury to the small capillaries in the tissues. Typically bruising occurs within the first 24 hours following filler injection. There is a small possibility of bruising at this point, though it is quite uncommon.

Bruising after filler...

Thank you for your question.  26 hours out it is unlikely you would bruise at this point.  Regards, Dr. Matt Elias
