Had Restylane Lyft this morning. Is this a normal bruise or Vascular Occlusion?

Is this a bruise?
Thank for posting your problem and photo. It appears to be a bruise. If you are experiencing pain, see your doctor. Good luck,
Bruise or occlusion?
Thank you for asking this question. It's probably a bruise, but vascular occlusion is a serious complication and if you have become concerned about this possibility you must be examined by your injector ASAP. Best, Dr. ALDO
Most likely this is a bruise and not vascular occlusion. You should contact the physician who performed the injection and discuss this with the physician. It may be best to have the physician examine you as a photograph on the web only allows for a limited evaluation.

Hello, and thanks for your question and photos. This looks most like a bruise and should resolve over the next few weeks. If you are having increasing pain or other color change to the area I suggest following up with your physician. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
Filler and bruise
Some numbness is common because the filler has numbing medication in it. In the photo, it looks like a bruise. Occlusion is commonly associated with acute pain and the tissue appearing whitish.
Bruise after Lyft
This is simply a bruise and not vascular occlusion. It may take up to 10 days to resolve. I use an Excel V laser to make the bruise duration last only 2-3 days. Arnica will also help.
Bruising after Injection
Thank you for your question. It appears to be normal bruising - which may last approximately 5-7 days, and may be worsened if you are on any type of blood thinners (NSAIDs, like Motrin or Aleeve; or an aspirin). Signs of vascular occlusion are typically pain, blanching of the skin, and even crusting of the skin. If you are not in severe pain at that site, chances are it's normal bruising. Of course, nothing takes the place of an in-person examination. I would recommend calling and speaking with the person who injected you, just so you can give him or her all of your symptoms and your concerns can be adequately addressed.
Bruising after Restylane
From the photos, it appears to be a bruise and not intravascular. This should resolve within a few days.

Bruising After Restylane Lyft/Cheeks/Corners of Mouth--Normal Side Effects after Fillers, Add skin tightening, lasers
It appears to be normal bruising, but I would consult your Dr. if you're concerned. Combination treatments always work best for these areas. I recommend adding Sculptra for collagen building with lasers and skin tightening treatments to get the best results on your cheeks and bottom mouth corners. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
