Thank you for your question. Due to its thin formulation, Volbella is an ideal product for shaping the lips as well as adding some volume. For more voluminous lips, you may need another filler. It is important to find a provider who is highly experienced in lip fillers in order to get the optimal results.
The bruising is common after any injection, especially on thin surfaces such as your lips. It typically subsides within 10 days.
Is this normal bruising after Volbella ?
Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Due to the thin tissues of the upper and lower lip any injections pose the risk of bruising. Yours are not uncommon for the amount injected and you should see them disappear within a week to 10 days. Hope this helps.
Bruising after Volbella injections into the lips are not uncommon. The bruising normally subsides within a week. Best wishes.
Swelling/Bruising/Lumpiness (early) from Fillers
I always tell my patients to not love their filler
injections for 2 weeks. Swelling is very common and sometimes immediate. It can
last 3-7 days and a good idea is to use cold compresses. Cold compresses may be
used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling only if needed. This may be
applied for 3 minutes, 3 times per day, for up to 3 days. This is best done
with a bag of peas in a zip lock bag. Only apply light pressure to the area but
gentle massage might be necessary if the bump is from the filler material
itself. Get Arnica gel if you can find some and apply a few times a day as well
to help treat any swelling. Avoid any blood thinners. Bruising can also last
1-2 weeks. I don't recommend hyaluronidase this early and wait a few weeks until
the swelling has resolved. If it is persistent or you are worried, set up a
follow up appointment with your dermatologist.
Bruising and swelling common after Volbella
Volbella,( Juvederm), Restylane, and other HA fillers injected into certain areas like the lips inevitable will cause swelling, and possibly bruising. I tell all my patients that it may take up to 10 days for thing to 'settle in' so hang tight for the final result.
All the best

Bruising After Lip Filler (Vobella)
Thank you sharing your photo. It is always possible to have bruising after lip filler with any hyaluronic acid agent such as #Vobella. The bruises may last 4 to 14 days on average. In cases with large bruises, the remnants of the bruise may last as long as 3 to 4 weeks. Some suggestions to minimize bruising is to avoid alcohol, anti inflammatory medications, and Vitamin E tablets for 3 to 7 days before your injections. Immediately following injection, ice the area and avoid strenuous exercise for 2 to 3 days.
