black eye

hi, i've had fillers put under my eyes 2 weeks ago and one of my eyes is still quite darkened underneath.  it's definitely not a black eye anymore but the bruising seems to be taking longer to go away than expected.  i've never had a black eye or any kind of eye bruising so i'm wondering if you know how long it will take for my bruising to go away?  thank you.

What do you mean by "fillers"?

oh sorry.  it's called radiesse.  it's an under eye filler to reduce the appearance of under eye bags.

Sorry no experience with that. Ask the person that treated you.

I got a black eye as a result of the local anesthesia used during retinal surgery.  When the darkness hadn't faded after a few weeks, I consulted a dermatologist.  I was told that sometimes blood can cause staining deep in the skin--too deep for topical creams to penetrate.  The only solution is to use a concealer (makeup) until the staining slowly fades.  It's been two years since my retinal surgery, and the darker pigment under my eye has almost entirely disappeared.
