Sophisticated Filler Injectors No Longer "Chase Lines," But Instead Shape & Recontour
Without a photo I can only comment in general terms. First, filling lines, sometimes referred to as "chasing lines and wrinkles" with fillers is actually considered an unsophisticated approach these days. Nowadays we use fillers and volumzing fillers to skillfully reshape and recontour the face to create projection, reduce shadows, etc.
In the areas close to the eyes, Juvederm (because of its ability to attract tissue fluid and cause puffiness) would not be my first choice for a product to be used on the high upper cheek near the eyes. Restylane Silk and Belotero Balance in my experience make far better choices.
If the swelling does not subside within a week or so, it would be wise to see your injecting physician. You might need the material dissolved with hyaluronidase. Afterward, I would suggest a consultation with a physician with particular experience and expertise in treating the periorbital region and make sure to ask him/her to show you before and after pictures before proceeding.

I am sorry you are unhappy with your results. However, you will need to wait two weeks to evaluate the results properly. There may be swelling and bruising that make it impossible to tell the full results. I bring every patient back after two weeks to evaluate their results. Best, Dr. Green
