Juvederm and hyperpigmentation

I am not sure if it is hyper pigmentation, or dark circles were accentuated after Juvederm. This is common as the refraction of the skin changes after Juvederm injections. If its dark circles HQ cream will not work. If indeed, it is hyper pigmentation, it can be treated with a higher concentration of HQ. Obagi only does the 4%, but a prescription with a higher concentration can be special ordered through a compounding pharmacy.
