Puffy and Redness After Juvederm Dissolved

How long before the puffiness under the eye (which looks like a ball) and redness to go away. It is so depressing to see this red ball under my eye, I was injected on Tuesday and Thursday to remove Juvederm.

Swelling after hyaluronidase lasts just a week or so

It sounds like you had hyaluronidase injected to dissolve misplaced filler.  We do see swelling after hyaluronidase is injected but it works like a charm and the swelling will resolve.

Did you have hyaluronidase injected to dissolve the Juvederm? You might have a bruise and need two to three weeks for it to go away.

Generally speaking, it may take 3 weeks for the fullness to resolve. However, it is best to discuss this with the physician who administered the treatment.
