Bruising After Botox
Although not common, bruising can occur after BOTOX® injections.
Bruising occurs when a Botox needle ruptures a blood vessel.
Blood vessels are difficult to see and everyone’s anatomy is different. Good Botox Injectors use a very fine needle and special techniques to minimize the risk of bruising. However if a blood vessel is ruptured, blood leaks into the surrounding tissue underneath the skin.
The blood has no where to go – and a red or purple mark is left behind. This is what we know as a ‘bruise’. The bruise slowly turns to yellow and green and other shades of color as the body heals itself.
Eventually, the body completely re-absorbs the blood and the skin returns to it’s normal color.
