Juvederm filler in cheeks. Puffiness under one eye. Is this a permanent problem? Should I wait longer for it to resolve?

Juvederm in cheeks and tear trough - now problems
It is a recurring issue seen on Realself. Juvederm is not a great filler for the cheeks and eye area. It leads to swelling that is hard to fix. I would try more hyaluronidase and possible seek another opinion. If not improving, consider 5FU with Kenalog. I'm sorry this has happened to you but it is a combination of a poor choice of filler and not the best injection. I use Restylane and blunt cannulas for this injection.
Puffiness from Juvederm
It is possible that you are having an allergic reaction and still require more Vitrase to dissolve the product. I prefer Belotero in this delicate under eye area. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
