I got under eye filler yesterday. One eye I am finding to look puffy and bruised. Is this normal? Will it go away? (Photo)

Early days, Ice, wait a 10 days. - Belotero fillers
Very early days to make a decision. You can ice for the next day or so, 5-10 min on per hour. Swelling is common. A decision can be made at the 10 day mark. Volbella and Belotero are one of the best fillers in this location, however placement must be accurate. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Belotero undereye injection
Bruising and swelling are common after filler injection to the delicate undereye area. At one day post procedure, it is too soon to tell if it is the filler or swelling resulting in the puffiness. I would wait 7-14 days for any bruising and swelling to resolve and then follow with your injector if you still have concerns about the results. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Inferior eyelid swelling
1 day after the procedure is just too early to tell if the swelling is from the filler itself being done poorly, or just a result of injection technique and local tissue trauma. It doesn't hurt to apply cool compresses, elevation to help with the swelling, but I'd recommend giving it at least 1 week before going back in and considering hyaluronidase injection to dissolve the filler. If you try to manipulate or massage it you need to be really careful so as not to displace the filler itself. In my experience the vast majority of patient responses like yours resolve on their own.
