Blue and puffy after #Restylane under eyes
Vitrase should resolve the problem this time. next time, your physician may consider #Beletero and placing the filler deeper to avoid both swelling and the Tyndall effect.
This is called the Tyndall Effect and does not last permanently. It will gradually fade with time. You can consider hyaluronidase if you don’t want to wait.
Blue under eye after Restylane
The Tyndall effect occurs when light strikes filler that is too superficially placed through the skin. It is easily corrected with hyaluronidase, which can be injected to dissolve the filler that is showing through. It can be avoided with proper injection technique or with the use of Belotero, which can be injected superficially without concern for the Tyndall effect. Be sure your physician is an experienced "core" injector (facial
plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, dermatologist, or occuloplastic
surgeon). This is because we all have a keen understanding of facial
anatomy and the effects of injecting fillers in different
regions of the face. I wish you well!
Tyndall effect is when the filler is very close to the skin, and is seen through the skin as the bluish color you describe. Speak to your doctor about possibly dissolving the filler for you.
Injection of fillers under eyes
Fillers are great for improving the framework around the eyes and the results can be dramatic and impressive when performed by a skilled and qualified injector. Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, can result in a Tyndall effect, when injected too superficially. This is when the filler material is visible through the skin if it is placed too superficially. This can be corrected with dissolving the filler with hyaluronidase or will naturally correct itself as the filler wears off.
Blue under eyes after Restylane
The Tyndall effect occurs from fillers when they are placed too superficially in the skin and thus, the product shows through. Usually it happens more with Juvederm in this area than Restylane, but if your injector put it too shallow there it can certainly occur. It's not permanent and can be immediately resolved by having hyaluronidase injected to remove the Restylane. Remember that dissolving filler is just as much an art as putting it in to begin with, so make sure you seek an expert injector!

This Tyndall effect is a common occurrence when injecting superficially. You need to discuss options with your cosmetic surgeon.
Vitrase for correcting the Tyndall Effect Under the Eyes
Hi SC. By all means, this is not permanent. The problem in your situation is that the product was injected superficially (too close to the surface of the skin). When the filler is injected in this manner light reflects through the filler causing the bluish tint you are seeing.
A better and more experienced injector would place the product deep in this area, under the muscle. This not only makes the area smoother, avoids any lumpiness and will never create the Tyndall effect.
Vitrase (Hyaluronidase) is a product we use often for patients that have the same issue as you and are unhappy with their previous injections. To see an example of exactly the same type of case as yours (bad injections under the eyes with Juvederm), click the link below.
Blue bags under eyes after Restylane - Remove with hyaluronidase
This looks like a poorly performed injection. Was this by a specialist? It is too superficial leading to the Tyndall effect - blue and too much was placed. Please have this removed with hyaluronidase and go to a specialist for this. This is the hardest area to treat and you need to go to a "Pro" for tear trough injections.

Restylane , Blue Tint Under Eyes
I would recommend you following up with your provider. They can dissolve the product in the office with an injection of Vitrase. If you are unsatisfied, you do not have to live with it.
Hope this helps.
