Post Juvederm massage 3 x a day for 3 days or don't? Mixed messages need help (Photos)

Juvederm should only be massaged by your injector
Massage could aggravate the situation so you need to stop massaging it. At this point ice will probably not help but your bruising may dissipate faster if you take arnica montana and also see if your physician can use vbeam on the bruising. This helps it go away faster, but usually its best done the first 2 days after treatment.

Typically Juvederm does not require any massage post injection. Arnica can be taken daily in order to try and speed up the bruising and swelling. The worst of the swelling generally reduces within the first 48 hours, but you can have some residual swelling for 2 weeks. The bruising will get better day to day, but can also take a week or so to completely resolve.
Post juvederm swelling and bruising
Congrats on your engagement!
I would not massage. Pleas ice and use arnica pills. If the swelling continues you may want to ask your physician for a medrol dose pack. The swelling and bruising may last up to two weeks.
Icing and numbing prior to your next procedure and arnica tablets may help bruising like this in the future.
Best of luck,

The bruising may take a week or so to dissipate. The swelling usually subsides within a few days. Best of luck.
Bruising and swelling after Juvederm
Massaging will not help bruising. I use an Excel V laser to help that as well as arnica. I don't have my patients massage after injections. It can reduce the longevity of the filler in my opinion. Discuss with your physician.
