Why Did Juvaderm Ultra Plus and Restylane Make my Eyes Look Even More Wrinkly?

I had upper/lower bleph in Aoril - I then got restylane and juvaderm ultra plus put in in June to plump the hollow tear trough and cheek bone area - my face shape looks great but the wrinkling under my eyes and along the top of my cheeks is horrid - I look like I'm a 100!!! I'm freaking out because I'm off to a very important engagement to meet my boyfriend first time face to face and I'm worried that if I put in more filler it will look worse

Did fillers make your eyes look worse?

Without a photo it's impossible to know exactly what you are describing or what the best solution is.. The best advice at this point, is to follow up with your Doctor and discuss your concerns with him or her.

It would really help if we could see a photo and one at rest as well as one smiling would be best. It is unusual to see this happen but there are some situations where I can imagine that things might get "shifted" in a way that does not please you. Please send photos

It would really help us if you posted a photo or two to let us see the exact problem. Placing the Restylane or Juvederm too superficially will make coutour irregularities visible. There is an enzyme to remove the product which your surgeon/injector should have.

An as a general rule, I would not perform a cosmetic procedure within a couple of weeks of an important engagment.

Juvederm and Restylane and Under Eye Wrinkles

Without seeing a photo it is very difficult to tell exactly where the problem lies.  If the area under your eyes and cheeks is excessively wrinkled, the material may be too superficial, and you may be seeing the actual material itself.  Both Juvederm and Restylane can be dissolved with Hyaluronidase.  This is a very simple procedure which usually works in a day or so.  Do not add more filler at this time.
