Causes of Puffy Eye Bags 8 Months After Juverderm Plus Under Eyes?

I had under eye hollows that were treated with juvederm about 8 months ago. Everything was fine until lately. When I awake, I have puffy bags under my eyes. It takes most of the day to resolve, and makes my eyes look so small, especially when I smile. I thought by now that most of the product would be gone. What and why is this happening?? Many thanks...

Your swelling may not be from Juvederm.  It may be an allergy.

But Juvederm can definitely last a year or more in some people.

So go

  1. back to the doctor who did your injection.
  2. And see your regular doctor or allergist.

There will be an answer and most likely an excellent treatment.
