HA fillers may cause a bluish hue of lower eyelid skin called the Tyndall Effect.
Hope this helps you.

Revanesse Kiss is a hyaluronic acid filler made in Canada by a smaller firm...
in your case there was probably too much injected too close to the surface of the skin...and more hyaluronidase ought to dramatically improve the situation...in any case you need a return visit to the doctor and a chat about how to proceed...
Tyndall Effect after tear trough injections
The Tyndall effect is a phenomenon that occurs when the Hyaluronic acid based product (Ravenesse) is placed too close to the surface of the skin and light reflects off of the product creating a bluish or greyish hue to the skin.
The solution is to go back to your injector and have them use Vitase (Hyaluronidase) to dissolve the product. It will immediately make the bump go down and should take away the bluish color as well. Good luck.
