Restylane injection under eyes. How long for bruising and bags to clear up? 12/17/2013--1/3/2014

1. Bruising from restylane in the lower eyelid region usually persists for about 10 days.
2. Bags are supposed to be treated with restylane or at least masked. This may be the result of excess restylane injection, I would suggest to re-consult with your injector.
All the Best!

I advise my patients to wait a full two weeks for the product to completely settle and bruising eliminate before seeing their final result, I suggest you follow up with your provider if the bags or bruising have still not healed
Under eye injections should be done with blunt cannulas and expert injector

Bruising and swelling usually goes away in 10-14 days. You could have "bags" from the actual filler placement itself which will not resolve until the product dissipates or is dissolved. I might suggest you return to your injector at this point for an evaluation.

There is also a condition called hemosidering staining which results from bruising that can look like a long term bruise. If you have this type of hyperpigmentation, it can also last quite some time.
