Orange-brown staining

Treated the under eye area may cause orange brand staining under the eye. Although it is temporary, it may take several months for it to completely disappear. 


Patients with darker skin types may experience bruising which may cause hyperpigmentation. This may last for a very long time. 


The under eye does not need much filler substance, therefore, there is a possibility of over correction. Over correction is characterized by puffiness. 


Infection of the treated are rare but may be a possibility. If infection does occur, the prescribing director will typically treat with antibiotics.

The Tyndall effect

If the filler is not injected deep enough, there may be a bluish tint to the skin. This is dues to the blue light spectrum that is being scattered.


The skin around the eye is typically thin and nodules may occur. Massage may be done carefully, however, a substance to blend the filler may be used to reduce the appearance and filling of nodules. 


Blindness is an extremely rare complication, however, patients should be aware regardless of how rare. This happens due to the filler migrating into a local artery.
