Question: After my Restylane injection last week my lips were heavily bruised. Is there any way to prevent this from happening the next time I get an injection?
Answer: Some patients use homeopathic remedies postop to try to decrease the bruising. Also, at the time of the injection, it is very important to make sure that injections are not done directly into vessels of the lip. Some people like to use ice to the lip prior to injection. This helps to constrict the vessel and decrease the bruising.
