have had dardk circles all my life. reddish brwn,restylane works. used hyaluronidase 2 times because dr used juvederm oncer (tyndall). took me five rounds to get it out. my derm was away, so i used my ps. it hurt and swelled (never does) and where he broke a vessel i healed in a few days, but i noticed what i had dreaded from day one: a straight dark line of filler. it looks brown, but i know it is filler not a deep bruise. A dr today insisted it is a bruise butvi know tyndal look on me can appaer brown

brownish discoloration under the eyes can be due to "healing bruise" or could be due to filler itself. if you feel strongly about that then you should have it dissolved. give it a few days to resolve and then have it re-injected.
