Unfortunately, blood from the bruising can permanently stain your skin.  I'm not certain that anything but concealer can help much.  You might try consulting a cosmetic dermatologist.

Scratch my above response.  I've found an effective treatment for this problem.  The brownish staining from the bruising I got following multiple surgeries on my right eye was completely removed by a single treatment with a Q-switched laser.  This is the same laser used to remove tattoos.

I had previously been told that the problem was untreatable, since no cream could penetrate that deeply.  But I recently found an article on the Candelalaser website describing the use of a Q-switched laser to treat blood staining on the legs and calves.  I was referred to Dr. Amy Derick in suburban Barrington, Illinois, by the laser manufacturer.  The treatment took only a few minutes and wasn't painful.  Afterwards, the staining had risen to the surface of my skin, and it flaked off over the next few days.  So I could finally toss my Dermablend concealer.

Memo to the search engines:  There is an effective treatment for a "permanent" black eye.

Mnrd, I hope you haven't changed your email address since you posted your question.
