Hi Hyouko!!! welcome to the forum.
Viewing additional after pics would definitely help to make an assessment.
If it was bruising (which should be almost healed after a week or two in most cases), there should not be a depression. I know you said there is no discoloration, but if Hyaluronic Acid is not injected deep enough you will get a black and blue like appearance. Sometimes swelling, slight bruising (if the patient is very fair skinned or has particular medical issues), or slight puffiness is present, but after 19 days, almost optimal results should be clearly visible, if not at a month's time, they should be clearly evident.
Significant puffiness and a depressed area?!?! I have not seen this in the past in anyone who has gotten Hyaluronic Acid injections.
When is the last time you spoke with your doctor? Did you go to an accredited surgeon, a skin specialist, or a general clinic? You should contact them asap.
