It is best to return to your injector for an examination. It needs to be determined if the bump is truly a pimple or something else. The treatment will vary based on the diagnosis. Until then keep the area clean using mild soap and water. The bruising from the injections will fade over the next few days. You can use arnica to aid in that effort if you wish.
Bruises and painful bump after filler
The bump around the lip is a bit concerning. I could be a cold sore. It needs to be looked at. Bruising can be improved with arnica or if the doc has a vascular laser or IPL. I also use a patch called Ocumend, which is highly concentrated arnica in a patch. I prefer cannulas which makes bruising less of an issue.
Painful Bump after Filler
I would suggest you return to your treating physician for examination. You need t find out if the bump is from too much filler or an infection in that area. The treatment would be completely different. Please keep us posted. Best, Dr. Green
After Voluma and Juvederm two days ago, I got bruises and one pimple like bump in upper lip area that is slightly painful.
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your post-filler issues. The first thing that needs to be done is to diagnose the painful bump. Is this a pimple, or could it be a deposit of filler that has not softened yet. In the former situation maintaining the area clean until the pimple resolves should be sufficient. If the lump is residual filler material this should be massaged by your injector in the hopes it smooths away over the next 2-4 weeks. If the lump is a large collection of filler occasionally a medication is needed to dissolve the filler material. Best to see your injector.
I would have the bump evaluated by your injector. The bump could be an acne lesion or possibly a cold sore. If it is a cold sore, an antiviral medication will help it resolve faster. I do not think antibiotic ointment will be helpful and I don't often recommend using antibiotic ointments. I hope this helps.
Some patients do get bruising with filler placement. It just happens and often is not the technique of the doctor. Those bruises will go away and the filler will settle into your skin.
Regarding the bump. I'm not sure what that is nor can be without actually examining it. I would suggest you use hot compresses to bring it down. I'm not a big fan of antibiotic ointment as they have a high percentage of people who become allergic to them.
Bruising after voluma can happen on occasion.
Voluma is a great product but like any filler, may cause some bruising from time to time. This can be lessened through the use of icing immediately after placement. Although a pimple would not be a worry, you want to make sure that you are not developing a cold sore that can be common after filler to the face (more commonly to the lips). You might want to have your provider take a quick look at you.
