Bruising after Filler in the Tear Trough
Thank you for your question. It is not uncommon to have bruising after injection. Juvederm is not recommend for the tear trough area because the skin is very thin and can lead to persistent swelling. I recommend having the filler dissolved with hyaluronidase, and replaced with Restylane. Please make sure you are seeing an expert injector.
Bruising after filler
Bruising is not uncommon with filler, especially under the eye. The bruise was likely just deeper and surfaced a little later. Additionally, Restylane is a better choice for under the eyes due to ongoing possibility of swelling with the use of Juvederm in that area. If you are still concerned I would recommend following up with your injector.

Bruising can occur with any technique. Although it was seen at 5 days, it was there prior and just surfaced. Using Juvederm for this area is not a good choice and can lead to chronic swelling. I use Restylane here with cannulas. See link.
