It looks like bruising
Best, Dr McNeill
Not Tyndall effect
To minimize bruising, I have patients avoid supplements and medications that can cause bruising (there is a very long list), use blunt-tipped cannulas, mix a little epinephrine into the fillers, use ice packs both immediately during/after the injections as well as at home, recommend arnica gel and tabs, vitamin K cream, and prescription Biafine, and inject small amounts of filler at a time, very slowly. After the fact, vitamin K cream and Biafine can be helpful, and I laser any bruises with GentleLase, which is dramatically effective in most patients.
it will resolve. Using a yellow cream (Clinique or Physician's formula) under a setting powder snd an opaque foundation will cover them fairly well.
