Dark skin (Tyndall Effect) following Juvederm
Juvederm in tear troughs. Any suggestions?
If you noticed the darkness coming on over a day or so after your treatment and it is slowly getting better, then it is likely bruising. If you noticed it look worse immediately, then it is more likely the Tyndall effect. If it is the latter then you may consider injecting hyaluronidase to dissolve it and start the process over. I also prefer to use Restylane in the tear trough. Juvederm is great in other areas but it tends to cause more swelling which is not ideal for the tear trough's thin skin.
I hope this helps and good luck.
Juvederm under the Ey
It is very difficult to tell from the photo if this is the Tyndall effect or bruising. It looks like it is most likely the Tyndall effect from the filler. I prefer Belotero for the under eye area in such cases as there is no Tyndall effect. Best, Dr. Green
