Hi SC. In cases like yours where the Tyndall effect is present, we use Vitrase (Hyaluronidase) for the Restylane reversal.
For an example of before and after pictures of Restylane reversal for a Los Angeles a patient in a similar situation, click on the link below.
This can easily be reversed. Without photos it is hard to tell if this is truly what you have or if there is something else going on. Please come into the office this week, we can help. You want someone who is an expert filler injector when treating this area. I typically use cannulas so there is little risk of bruising or tyndall. I think your best best is to get a formal evaluation, a different filler with a different injection techinque may be needed. But do not worry, it can be fixed! Best, Dr. Emer.
Tyndall effect can be resolved with hyaluronidase
I don't know what filler was used but it sounds like an HA. This can be reversed with hyaluronidase. I use cannulas for this too. It might need 2 treatments if this is Juvederm. Don't dispair.
Blue Discoloration After Restylane
When restylane is injected too superficially in the hollows under the eyes, it can lead to a blue discoloration of the skin known as the tyndall effect. When this happens, a medication called hyaluronidase can be injected to dissolve the restylane. You should see the injecting physician to be evaluated as it is still possible that you are experiencing bruising or swelling from your treatment that could be contributing to what you are seeing in the mirror.
