Swelling/Lumps After Fillers Such as Juvederm or Restylane -- Reverse With Hyaluronidase

This can be reversed with hyaluronidase injections or steroids/5fu. I suggest you see an expert for treatment options.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Juvederm problems

I can't see anything wrong in the pictures. This needs to be evaluated in person. Hyaluronidase does not damage skin. Often times more than one injection is needed. Juvederm is not the right filler for the eye area and I don't like it for cheeks either. There is no permanent damage with Juvedem or hyaluronidase.

Needs evaluation

An evaluation will help. The darkness under the eyes can be treated with Retin A or lasers.  Tyndall effect is a bluish color. The lumps will need to be evaluated by your doctor.
