Don't Get Restylane for Eye Bags! - Michigan, MI

I got Restylane injected into my under eye bags...

I got Restylane injected into my under eye bags hoping for it to help smooth out the lines. It has been 4 months now and when ever my eyes swell due to allergies it made my eye bags twice as big. I also have tenderness all around my eyes as I did when I first got the injections 4 months ago.

I had to go to work for 3 weeks looking like a monster with swollen black and blue eyes with everyone asking what happened.

I would not recommend restylane under the eyes at all. I write this sitting here with an ice pack on my eyes tonight after 4 months.

I did get it in the nasal folds and I had no problem with it there. I also had a little put above my lip for wrinkles and that was fine. I don't know if I just have such thin skin around my eyes but it hurt really bad and I can still see right where the Dr. injected it.

Hi Mickie,

I'm so sorry about your eyes, that sounds miserable. You might want to check out the answers to these two questions from our doctor Q&A they might help.
