Only One Eye Was Incorrectly Injected with Juvederm Causing Tyndall Effect. How To Dissolve?

One eye was injected correctly under the muscle and the other was injected superficially and caused tyndall effect. Is it easier to dissolve HA that is injected superficially or below the muscle? Or are both instances equally difficult?

One Eye Incorrectly Injected with Juvederm Causing Tyndall Effect. How To Dissolve?

The area all around the eyes is very thin,so even if product was injected correctly The Tyndall effect can develop.  You should call the Doctor or Nurse that injected it and ask them to dissolve it with a tiny injection of Hyluronidase.  That is the beauty of using Hyluronic Acids as fillers because things can easily be corrected.
Don't stress since the solution to your problem is very simple.

Juvederm and Tyndall effect

Even injection under the muscle can cause Tyndall effect if the tissue is thin and relatively large amounts is injected. Dissolving Juvederm in either location is not difficult.

One of the nice things about Juvederm or Restylane injections is that if it isn't exactly correct it can be dissolved

Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid fillers. Since they are gels that are injected under the skin and in the case of the lower eyelid under the muscle, sometimes it clumps up or ends up in a slightly different area or depth than originally intended. If that occurs, then the gel can be dissolved by injecting an enzyme called hyauronidase.

Correcting A Tyndall Effect from Dermal Filler Injections

The Tyndall Effect refers to bluidsh discoloration of the skin that arises when dermal fillers such as Juvederm are injected too superficially. Bascially, light picks up the the superficial filler and makes it look blue. This is easily corrected by using a medication called hyaluronidase. This medicine can be injected into the blue area and dissolve the filler, making the discoloration go away. My recommendation, as with any outcome you have questions about, is to see the physician who performed the procedure. Experienced injectors should be very familair with this technique.

Juvederm and Tyndall effect

Juvederm isn't injected under muscles, just deeper in the skin. So you can't possibly have it under your muscle. The superficial Juvederm can easily be removed by an experienced injector with hyaluronidase. As well, the deeper Juvederm can also be dissolved if you want. Neither location is difficult to remove as long as you see an experienced injector.
