So, what is a bruise? A bruise is a collection of blood that occurs when a blood vessel is sheared. In plastic surgery, bruising can occur after injections such as botox and dermal fillers as well as surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty and facelifting. This can be most unpleasant for those known as 'bad bruisers" - those who bruise like a peach and find that even a slight bump leads to a blue mark.
In case of a muscle relaxing treatment - Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin – bruising is uncommon, but it is still good to follow these suggestions. However, dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra are slightly more invasive and following these instructions will help to reduce bruises quicker or prevent them all together.
