Brown Patches Under Eyes After Juvaderm

I got Juvaderm in October of 2011. I bruised on both sides of my eyes where the crows feet area is. I noticed after the bruising was gone it turned light brown. It is now 6 months later and the brown spots have turned into patches. They are large and very noticeable in the sun. I have used lightning cream and it has not been very effective. I haven't contacted the office I got it done because it was 6 months ago. I dont know what to do and its getting worse!!

Dark spots after injections


It is possible that this is post inflammatory hyper pigmentation but it might also be hemosiderin(from blood in skin). I would have your dermatologist look at it as they can give you a bleaching agent if hyper pigmentation.

Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from fillers


Although it is rare, some people will experience post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from fillers. I would actually recommend you see the doctor that did your injections, or another one, but this can happen. You may need a prescription skin lightening agent (like hydroquinone) to use for a bit, and apply a good sunscreen every single day.
