Incorrect filling placement If the injections are too shallow on the skin, the filler product can create unnatural looking results. In some cases, the filler can create a blue discoloration of the skin known as the Tyndall effect. It can also cause irregular lumps and swelling. It is completely normal for a patient to experience a reaction after the procedure to the filler treatment under the eyes in the form of edema or periorbital swelling.
The skin of the lacrimal canal is so thin that periorbital edema, erythema (redness), and bruising are likely to occur. This should be clearly explained to patients to avoid anxiety after treatment. Swelling will occur, but it will only become a problem for you and your patient if it persists or appears suddenly after some delay. Extreme pain, loss of vision, or the presence of floaters at the time of injection are signs that something might be wrong.
Sometimes, hyaluronic acid can be accidentally injected into a blood vessel and this could cause temporary vision problems. However, hyaluronic acid is completely soluble, so if this happens, your healthcare provider may dissolve the filler by injecting a watery substance that removes it from your system. When the procedure is reversed, there have been few reports of permanent damage. Facial fillers that are derived from hyaluronic acids (HA) are generally considered to be the safest options for treating the sensitive area under the eyes.
When done correctly, tear treatment can achieve a smoother, younger and rejuvenated appearance, with a noticeable reduction of bags under the eyes and deep lines. Conversely, a needle can be used to place the product deeper, down into the periosteum or bone surface, which means that the filling will be below the fat, pushing it up and propping up the lacrimal canal area. Khetarpal says that this procedure is good for anyone who can notice bags under the eyes between the ages of 20 and 60, not everyone is a good candidate for fillers.

Tim uses to control edema after tear filling by massage? Tear filling is used to make the canal less pronounced, which can make the face look more awake. The lacrimal canal is a complex area to treat, since the tissues are much thinner here than in other areas of the face, which makes any kind of problem much more obvious. The drug that dissolves these facial fillers is called hyaluronidase and works as an enzyme to break down these products. Some patients react to fillers and may need emergency steroids and hyaluronidase, but avoid making this their first diagnosis.
When considering a revision procedure after an unsatisfactory result of facial filler injections under the eyes (non-surgical rejuvenation), it is very important that you do your homework with regard to the education, background, training and experience of a qualified surgeon. Facial filler particles of hyaluronic acid that are placed too close to the surface of the skin can cause light incident on the area to scatter in such a way that it can create a bluish tint on the skin that covers the treated area. This procedure has become increasingly popular in recent times, and patients are looking for a quick and painless solution to the problem of tear hollows and bags under the eyes, a natural result of the aging process in which the skin loses volume and becomes more lax.
