Can under eyes Restylane injection cause permanent marks and bruising? (photo)

There are multiple reasons for dark circles under the eyes. An expert can solve your problem!
Bruising after under eye Restylane injections
There are definitely some patients where bruising can last longer than 2 weeks. In a very small number of patients (much less than 1 in 100) who have severe bruising after the procedure, pigment from the blood called hemosiderin can "stain" the skin and lead to skin darkness which can last as long as 6-12 months. This does resolve over time but progress can be very slow.
Dissolving the filler can cause additional bruising and will hot help with hemosiderin staining, so if you think the darkness is getting better over time, I would probably recommend waiting it out. Hopefully you will get the results you were looking for as the darkness subsides.
Bruising Under the Eyes
It looks like the injector hit a blood vessel like injecting your Restylane. Time should make the bruise go away. To help the bruising dissipate faster I suggest you take Arnica and you can have the V-Beam laser performed on the area.
