Subcision blue/purple bruising normal?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I got aggressive subcision + HA filler 4 days ago and the swelling is progressively going down. The cheek isn't tender or red but the bruising on one cheek is a purplish/blue colour with the surrounding area being yellow. I just wanted to check whether this was normal as I want to be proactive just in case this sound like signs of an infection. Does anyone know if this is normal?

Typically, swelling and bruising can last up to 2 weeks. If you're overly concerned about this, you can apply ice and/or take ibuprofen to reduce inflammation.
