Hello and welcome to the forum.  Thanks for your question but we're sorry you have had a lengthy period of bruising on your face.  How long have you had it?  Normally after 10 to 14 days, it turns to a slightly different color.  If your bruise is not going away, we advice seeing your doctor.  https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/326260#appearance-on-dark-skin  If you have any of the following, it is recommended to see your doctor:
numbness in the area
loss of function in a nearby joint or muscle
vision impairment
a bruise that keeps growing
a bruise lasting longer than 2 weeks
a bruise near a fractured or sprained bone
a bruise in the abdomen with no known cause
