Under dark circles worse after Restylane
If you feel that the darkness is improving, then I would wait as this could represent swelling/bruising. However if the darkness persists, then this may be due to the Restylane being placed too superficially and causing a Tyndall effect. Restylane is a great choice for under eye filler, however if it is placed in an incorrect plane, it may cause discoloration of the overlying skin. You may have the filler melted with hyaluronidase. My suggestion is that you see someone who is experienced in placing fillers under the eyes, specifically an oculoplastic/oculofacial surgeon.
Darkness from Under Eye Injections
Although the hollow is filled with Restylane you may have some Tyndall effect from the product being injected in this delicate area. If you don't like it you may have to have the injections reversed. Next time you can try Belotero which may cause less of a problem. Best, Dr. Green
