What's "enough" filler for under eye hollowing?
But a syringe of any filler is not much in terms of volume. A single syringe equals just a tiny bit more than one-fifth of a teaspoon.
As the physicians who answered previously suggested, it is likely you did not receive enough. (Though this is a much better option than getting too much and many physicians will take a step approach and add more filler after a couple of weeks if needed).
Barring the not enough explanation, some people simply have a higher level of natural enzymes that break down hyaluronic gel fillers and there is no way to know this beforehand.
Depending on the thickness of your skin, you may be a candidate for Perlane, which is a more robust formula of Restylane with a little more staying power.
You had considerable bruising. It's not always possible to avoid completely, but ask about filler placement with microcannula and also ask your physician for a list of supplements and over the counter medications like ibuprofen to avoid prior to injections. Both will make a big difference in how much you bruise - or if you bruise at all.
