Restylane Didn't Help Dark Circles - Houston, TX

- 28 Sep 2011
This was my first and possibly last foray into cosmetic procedures. Had 3 syringes of Restylane injected for dark circles under the eyes, but the improvement was minimal. Plastic surgeon tried to suggest I have skin hyperpigmentation, but the circles clearly result from visible blood supply and/or arcus marginalis. If anything, the filler elevated the tissue & made the circles more obvious.
After 2 months, I also have persistent swelling in one cheek & superficial lumps of filler which have to be squashed down daily. Would any of you out there with dark circles care to weigh in on whether fillers really addressed your problem? My PS is now suggesting a lower bleph, which scares me.
