Restylane Silk under eyes
Hi ~ Great question. Restylane Silk will cause swelling which can take up to two months to resolve. Your swelling is improving which is changing your result. This filler is great for the lips and under the eyes but leads to significant swelling. It is fine for you to get a touch up at this point but make sure you go to an experienced injector. Good luck!
Resty Silk Under the Eyes
Any of the HA fillers - Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero - love to attract water. They're "hydrophilic". As the initial swelling subsides, so too can the fill. Better to under correct than over correct initially. Adding filler is a more controlled process than dissolving it. Some additional fill at this time would be an appropriate idea. I hope it works out well.

How come Restylane Silk didn't last long enough under my eyes?
Restylane Silk is a great product that is very smooth and can be injected essentially anywhere. Because it is so thin, it has the least risk of creating any lumps or contour irregularities. The drawback is that it tends to go away the quickest. I prefer to use Restylane for the tear trough because it lasts longer. As far as getting a touch up, you certainly can if you want to maintain your result. You can also have a touch up with a different product like Restylane if you want a longer result.
I hope this helps and good luck.
