Hi, I had prevelle silk injected into the tear trough areas under my eyes, and it has only been two days since, the doctor said that I would have some brusing, but I feel like the brusing just keeps getting worse. The immediate results looked really good, but now I feel like a zombie because under my eyes is SO much darker now, the tear trough does look better but I'm wondering how I can tell if this is just brusing because of the injection or am I getting the tyndall effect?
Brusing After Prevelle or Tyndall Effect?

Bruising after Prevelle
Certainly, this could be bruising from the procedure itself. Or it could be a Tyndall effect, just as you considered. I think it will be hard for a trained professional, even with a Woods' light to be sure. Just give it a week or so and then you will have a better idea.

Darkness under eyes after fillers
Darkness under your eyes might not be the Tyndall effect. it can be bruising or hyperpigmentation. A dermatologist might be able to use a Wood's light to help ascertain of which origin is your darkness.Vitamin K creams can help bruising fade quicker, lightening creams can help pigmentation and hyaluronidase can diminish the filler and the Tyndall effect.
