I had some done on my face two weeks ago. I sustained massive bruising and it still has not gone away. How long will this bruising last? Is there a chance that the filler has solidified with the blood?
Bruises tend to leave in one to two weeks. The swelling and discolouration that occurs with bruising goes in this time also. It would be extremely unusual for there to be so much bleeding that the blood ‘solidifies’ with the filler. In my experience of thousands of filler treatments, I have not seen this before.
