Eye bag inflammation (edema?) after Belotero filler and blue/dark marks under eyes. Help! (Photo)
Doctor Answers 3
Your injector put too much hyuronic acid filler too close to the surface of your skin, causing Tyndall effect which means that the HA absorbed water and looks blue, just as water looks blue in certain lights. Your option is to wait 3 to 6 months until the HA dissolves on it's own, or you can use hyaluronidase to dissolve some of the more superficial filler from that is causing the puffiness and bluish color of your skin.

Belotero injection to undereyes
Sorry to hear about your experience. At this point, 1 month after your injections, any bruising or swelling should have resolved. Occasionally, malar edema related to improper placement of the filler can last longer than 1 month. The filler has most likely been placed in the wrong position and this has resulted in worsening of the undereye hollows and swelling. The probable solution is to have the filler reversed with hyaluronidase and the tear troughs reinfected with Belotero or Restylane by an experienced injector. I say experienced injector because tear troughs are one of the more advanced filler injection sites and good results require a knowledgeable and skilled injector with a good eye.
