REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT A BRUISE FROM DERMAL FILLER

Postby fefiona » Thu Dec 04, 2008 2:19 pm

Hi i posted a post the other day. I really need some suggestions. I had a dermal filler for a cheek lift one side did not bruise but the other did it left a brown reddish mark that was 2 days ago how long will it take to heal no swelling or lumps just this mark i am so concerned it won't go is there any tablets or cream i can get as i have a wedding coming up this weekend. I have tried to cover it up but looks like a big shadow under the cheek.

Go to the health food store or Whole Foods and buy some Arnica gel. It may help. I've heard VitK can help too with bruises, but not sure.

I'm sure you're wanting someone besides me to respond, so hopefully other will.

Good luck.

I've had filler injections to my undereyes twice now, and each time I got a very dark and nasty bruise, always in the outer corner of my left eye. It took about a week to 10 days to go. And I did take arnica tabs before the tx. In the meantime I covered it very effectively with Colortration concealer. I'm sure it'll be fine.

bruise

Try not to get too upset..........It will fade, but might take 10 days. You could try alternating ice and heat........heat is supposed to break up the bruise, but it just seems to take whatever time it needs to go away. Colortration is a good coverup, but I have not found anything that works to cover totally. For me best remedy is to hide for a week. Good luck!

thanks to all the replys i just have had great stairs from people and when i told them what happen they just look and can imagine what they are thinking. The bruise has moved all the way up the cheek and i have this wedding freaking out. I tried to cover it but it seems to just make it look worse and more noticeable not that it would take much to look any worse than it is. To be honest i think i will keep to the botox for the eyelift no problems with that and love the effect. My cheeks can stay how they are

I've bruised from injections before and recently got Arnica cream AND the oral tabs. It seems to be the best solution. I've also bought the yellow cover-up foundation and if too much is applied or doesn't dry before normal foundation... yuck! Start all over! Also, fluorescent lighting will make bruises show more than say... yellow lighting. Keep in mind Yellow is the opposite of Blue and Green is the opposite of Red work your make-up in opposites. Good Luck!

:shock: Uplifting, do not do this, do not alternate heat & ice. Sorry Lily37! All other advice here is great!

It was Lily37 who wrote about ice and heat, not uplifting, but I think you caught it! lol! Can you elaborate on why it's not a good idea for ice and heat though? I've heard warm compresses are good to do on a bruise.

Bruising

Postby Lily37 » Fri Dec 05, 2008 7:19 pm

I was told to do ice for the first 24-48 hours and then warm compresses to help break up the bruises. It seemed to work for me, but nothing works really quickly once the bruise sets in. Once the injector hits a vessel, the bleeding under the skin sets in and the damage is done, but the ice will help to constrict the vessel and stop the bleeding from spreading to a larger bruise.
However:
"After about 48 hours, some doctors say treating the bruise with a warm compress 3-4 times a day will help get rid of the bruise. By now your capillaries should be starting to heal and the blood flow should have stopped. A warm cloth spread over the bruise will help open up the healthy capillaries to increase blood flow so that your body can get rid of the bruise with it's natural cleaning processes. Repeat this process 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times per day for as long as the bruise is visible".

Hope this clarifies what I meant., but the best advice is to follow your own doctors instructions.

It shouldn't leave a permanent mark. Try not to worry about it, it should resolve itself. I get them every time.

Green is a good sign! Then comes the yellow... and you're home free! I think the most potent "cure" is time... it's true once the damage is done it's done and it takes time to heal. Of course it seems like forever because it's right on our faces! It's never easy...

Lily,

I posted this in an earlier post. The first time I got fillers, the PS massaged the juve/resty in. I was terribly bruised for three weeks. :( I had taken arnica maybe a day before.

The second time, she did no massaging and I had some bruising but it lasted maybe two weeks. I also took arnica three days before and sinnec according to directions.

You make it sound as if the bruising simply depends on where the needle goes. Am I right? I need to be bruise free in two weeks or I can't do it. Your thoughts, please.

Re: REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT A BRUISE FROM DERMAL FILLER

tear trough fillers and bruises:
I was warned by a plastic surgeon that if I wanted a tear trough filler that I should have a fat graft ( lipoconstruction). But I went to a dermatologist and she was more than willing to have hyauronic acid injection. She totally dismissed my comment when I told her that I was warned I might develop a bluish hue that is worse that the hollowness itself. Indeed I got a bluish to dark red hue at the site of the paths of the needles. They have not gone a way in 2 months. They are not pronounced, but surely, I now have darker circles around my eyes, and only mildly increased fullness. Anyone had that experience? I have olive skin, and the plastic surgeon was confident when he warned me about that.
