Options for complications with Restylane for under eyes

Excellent feedback from Dr. Rostan.  Your physician's quick intervention was appropriate, and we assume he/she will continue tight management of your condition.  If your are progresssing as hoped, hyaluronidase may be avoided.  If not, please follow the recommendations as your treatment can always be repeated once the condition is corrected.

Restylane complication

Vascular injection of restylane can be very serious and lead to loss of structure and function in the skin and face. I suspect and hope that your case is not this serious or hyaluronidase should have been injected immediately. Your doctor did exactly the correct protocol with the nitro paste and heat (to increase blood flow and dilate the vessels). If there are no ongoing issues then you can probably avoid the hyaluronidase injection.
