When Juvederm is injected too superficially under the eyes will it be absorbed by the body quicker than if it had been (correctly) placed under the muscle? I am hoping this situation doesn't last a whole year.
I had Juvederm injected 3 months ago for some hollowing underneath my eyes. Unfortunately, the dermatologist used a "superficial" technique leaving me with a Tyndall effect. I also had prolonged swelling for over six weeks because of the trauma to the thin skin in this area. I had severe bruising as well.
Because I have a extremely sensitive skin a second opinion from a PS office recommended not to use the enzyme to dissolve the juvederm since I would likely have an adverse reaction to that and a possible case of prolonged swelling again.
So.... I have spent more than the cost of the juvederm having custom make up to cover the blue....also wearing that much concealer has caused new wrinkles that I did not have before in this area.
This was a bad decision for me, which I regret. However, if the dermatologist had injected under the muscle I do think I would have gotten the results I was seeking.
Anyway, I am saddened by my current appearance, hiding my eyes behind glasses and feeling very self conscious. I hope that the only caveat in this situation would be maybe that the juvederm being more superficial would be absorbed more quickly by the body since it's getting a lot of movement from facial expressions and massage, etc.
