Tear Trough Fillers - Restylane, Belotero, Voluma -- If unhappy, reverse with hyaluronidase!
Swelling due to Restylane usually takes 2-3 weeks to subside. It takes a few weeks to see the final outcome and I suggest you wait to see how it all settles. Swelling and bruising is normal after fillers are injected. If you are concerned please seek an experienced cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer.
Thank you for your question. Swelling around the eyes after injection of filler in tear trough is not unusual. It is hard to judge without your photographs, however, if there is persistent swelling and discoloration in this area please Be evaluated by your injector to rule out possible complications. tear trough injection is an advanced technique, and should be only done by an experienced injector. If the filler is placed too low, and not on the "orbital rim", it can cause an unattractive appearance, or the filler can displace and move to the Adjacent areas. this can be desolved by injection of a small amount of an enzyme called the vitrase. Best of luck!
You may still be experiencing post injection swelling but be sure to contact the injector regarding your concerns. If any redness or warmth is present that is NOT expected and should be reported immediately.

Unusual feelings and swelling around area where Restylane was injected
Thank you for sharing your question. It is not unusual for swelling to develop and pressure sensation for several days after the injection of Restylane into the tear troughs. I prefer the technique of using a needle in the tear troughs. It is a more precise method and when performed by an expert, there is usually almost no bruising.
