After 3 weeks the swelling and bruising should all be resolved. Some people develop fullness under the eye from restylane which is does not go away until the product is removed. I would consider having the restylane removed with an injection of vitrase. This should solve the problem.
Swelling and bruising are common side effects of under eye injections and can take approx. 2 weeks to resolve.
Swelling and bruising are common side effects of under eye injections and can take approx. 2 weeks to resolve. A small population of people take 3 weeks to heal from swelling and bruising. Some people have increased swelling with under eye injections - you may want to schedule another follow up with your injector and have the product dissolved.
Best of Luck.
Swelling/bruising 3 weeks post treatment
It is rare for swelling to persist for this duration. If you trust your injector, then heed his or her advice. You may want to consider reversing the effects of the restylane with hyaluronidase. Request to see your injector again, and ask about this possibility.
3 weeks later and still with bruising from filler under eyes
This is likely something called Tyndall effect and is due from superficial placement and swelling from the filler in that area. I suggest getting another evaluation, and having the enzyme hyaluronidase injected to reverse the filler. Most often I have found this resolves the issue in just a few hours. If you are to get injections again, you will need much deeper placement of the filler. At best, it may just be swelling/bruising but that is typically resolved by 3 weeks. Best, Dr. Emer.
Swelling under eyes after fillers-be patient
Swelling can last for weeks when fillers done under the eyes. Sometimes this is simply bruising and sometimes some fluid collects in the area. If swelling is worse in morning sleep with your head elevated. There are some fillers that will cause long term purple sheen under the eyes because of the way they reflect light when injected superficially but I do no usually see this with Restylane
