In brief: Color change
Bruises eventually resolve.
If there are many and not caused by trauma or blood thinners see doctor for evaluation.

In brief: Scar tissue
Most bruising does not have after effects.
However, deep bruising can result in permanent scar tissue formation or nerve damage. Rarely, there can be more serious effects both short and long term.
