I had Dysport injected around my eyebrows. I had some bruising at the injection site that turned into a very dark bruise. It was noticeable for 8 days after the injection. I know that bruising can occur but I never expected it to be so bad. Do you think that could be a sign of something gone wrong?
No. There are some very large blood vessels around the eyes. If the needle hits one of these blood vessels, a bruise can occur. Sometimes the bruise may last for 3 days. Sometimes it may last for 3 weeks. It depends on each patient. But good injection technique with a light touch and awareness for where most of these blood vessels tend to be is also important.
