      Like any bruising, about 2 weeks is normal. Any discolouration can take longer.
      There is nothing you can do to speed this up. It’s just the way bruises go, like anywhere else on your body too.

        It took about a month for mine to go down after having all four of mine cut out. I alternated heat and ice on my cheeks.
