Restylane in Tear Troughs
It's hard to tell from the pictures. You might have Tyndall effect or you might have discoloration from bruising. I inject the tear trough very frequently with gratifying results. I prefer to use a cannula most of the time. If needed, Restylane can be dissolved. Go back to see your injector or get another opinion from another specialist.
See oculoplastic specialist for complicated tear trough problem
It is difficult to tell from the photos. It is best to you see an oculoplastic specialist in person. Options for tear trough hollowness include filler injection, filler injection, and/or tear trough implant. Each has pros and cons.
Tear trough after filler
What went wrong is that you should not inject the tear troughs with a filler; otherwise you get what you are observing, often called Tyndall effect; What you need is a lower blepharoplasty.

You were overcorrected--too much was injected and it is too superficial. Have it removed with hyaluronidase and then start over. are you sure you saw a plastic surgeon and not a so-called cosmetic surgeon?
Unfortunate Complication--Darkening and lumps after Restylane
This can be a complication with a specific technique. You can have it reversed with hyaluronidase and try a different technique next time. I recommend injections with cannulas to limit complications. See an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
