Juvederm - Will Side Effects Cause Permanent Damage to my Eyes?

I had Juvederm injected in my tear trough region because of the slight hollowness I was experiencing. The injection created a ridge and made my eyes look worse. It's been over a year and the swelling (that's what it looks like) still hasn't gone away.

What should I do? I thought Juvederm was supposed to naturally deteriorate over time.

You can have juvederm or restylane removed if you dont like it

You can have the Juvederm dissolved by injecting an enzyme to dissolve it. The Juvederm will go away almost instantly, or you can inject just a little and smooth it out.

Around the eyes, I have seen hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane last for more than 3 years. But if you want, it can be removed in a matter of minutes.

I recommend that you return to physician that did your injections so that he or she can evaluate you and possibly inject hyaluronidase to dissolve any remaining filler that you do not like. I have also seen filler in this area last a few years.
