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.
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.
