At this point, the lumps and bumps are not due to Restylane. You may have a low grade infection or inflammatory reaction. You need an evaluation but you may benefit from antibiotics or injections with anti-inflammatory medication in the area.
I hope this helps.
Tear trough injections with hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvederm) very risky.

The fact that it won't diminish and is painful suggests a biofilm. This is a type of infection associated with fillers.
You need to see a dermatologist. These are often difficult to eradicate.
Restylane and Tear Trough Injections
Restylane product can generally last up to one year when injected in the tear trough area. I have not seen lumps 15 months later from product injected. Please consult a board certified dermatologist to assess if this is allergy or product and what the proper treatment would be. We use a lot of Belotero in my practice for the tear trough area since it is a finer injection and if you have a very superficial area it can be filled best with Belotero.
