We use q-switched lasers to remove the dark coloration and at the link below you can see before and after photos of a similar case for our Orange County patient.
Brown patches under the eyes after fat transfer
- If bruising persists past 2 weeks, some of the iron from the red blood cells can leak out causing this discoloration
- It can take time for it to improve (6 months)
- You may want to try a vitamin K cream to help
- I also agree that the HQ cream probably will not help
