Bruising from an injury can disappear slowly, but usually takes 1-3 weeks depending on how severe the injury is.
If the appearance of a bruise is not accompanied by a history of previous physical trauma, it does not necessarily mean that there is a serious health problem, bruising that appears without injury is often known as "licked by the devil" when in fact the condition occurs small blood vessels in the area are fragile so that they can rupture by itself although it does not experience collisions or what is known in the medical world as purpura simplex, this can also be influenced by hormonal balance.
