Options For Treting The Tyndall Effect 7 Months Post-Restylane?

Tyndall effect after Restyane
Restylane is a clear gel that when injected too superficially, it can be seen from the surface as a bluish cyst-like area. This typically takes well over 6 months to resolve on its own and can last 1 year or longer. Treatment of this is simple--just make a small nick in the skin with a blade or needle and express the material out. One should return to their physician who can perform this easily within minutes.
If you experienced the Tyndall effect at 7 months post-filler injection, you may want to see your doctor to perhaps remove the superifical product or inject hyaluronidase to dissolve it.
Med-Lite, Vitamin K cream, surgery?
Please, there is no reason for these options, Tyndall effect is caused by hyaluronic acid placed too close to the skin. An injection with hyaluronidase enzyme will immediately removed this material.
