Anytime you get an injection procedure there is a risk of bruising (even when it has not occurred in the past). In the first few hours after injection, continue to apply an ice pack. If bruising occurs it will subside in a few days – you can conceal with make-up.
Sometimes bruising can be associated from an injection if a small blood vessel has been nicked from the needle. There are thousands of tiny vessels that are not seen with the visible eye when injections are given so it can happen on occasion.
As we age the delicate skin under the eye becomes lax and the cheek fat descends into the middle of the face leaving semi-circular creases and depressions known as tear troughs. These depressions make the eyes look ‘sunken’ and produce the illusion of darkening around the eyes resulting in ‘dark circles’ or ‘tired eyes’.
