:) hi JILL61 I'M also olive skin colored and i had horrible (want to die) discoloration from co2 undereye. i look like a racoon with red under eye 9 mon. later. people have asked if i'm doing drugs. i don't know what to believe if it is our skin coloring. but even if that is what it is . shouldn't out doctor warn us about this crazy side effect.

i think i read somewhere that you had lots of problems with under eye fillers.. can you tell me where your posts are.

ps. funny how i was given education video with all pinky creamy white skinned girls.

thanks something in common.

I also got the discoloration when I had my nasolabial lines plumped with Resty. One side was worse than the other. On that particular side, the injector added more at the very end and I don't think it was placed deep enough. I've also read that the discoloration comes from too shallow injection. It was at its worse during the 1st 2 weeks. It gradually improved, but was distressing while there. I still had to use concealer to cover the discoloration. The discoloration almost looked worse than the line shadow itself! That was my 1st experience with Resty or fillers in general. I am now worried about getting it again.

belleeve,

The eye filler problems must have benn posted by jasieteves, as I never had filler except in n/l folds. My PS said lasers are very risky for those with olive or darker complexions. There is one that can be used forthose of us with darker skin, but I can't remember the name of it. He said b/c we produce more melanin we are at risk for darkening with lasers.

It sounds like classic tissue necrosis to me. Its only of the worst complications you can get when injectinging in the lips or the frown lines. Its generally not fixable, it basically dead tissue.

In all the training Ive recieved, once you see a blanch after the injection, the injector is supposed to vigorously massage the area to the blach goes away. This usually happens when the injections are placed too long in the lips, near the labial artery.

Its a rare complication, it usually happend with inexperienced injectors.

its like my left eye with the Radiesse. My doc has admitted to pricking a blood capilarry and that is the bruise and discoloration I have for the last 12 weeks. Yours sound the exact same thing except its in the lip area. Good uck it does take a very long time to go away. I'am living this nightmare as we speak. Jasie

Hi, I just saw this stream of posts. I'm worried too that I have a grayish/blue discoloration. For those of you that had this a while ago and had discoloration, did it go away for you? I'm so upset over this. It definitely isn't a bruise but a slight discoloration. I am never doing this stuff again. It has been so awful.

I spent 1200 for resty under my eye Nov 2005.It did not help my problem, only surgery helped.It left a slight blue discoloration under each eye that has never gone away.I have been told that was due to resty not being injected deeply enough.I feel I really got ripped off and damaged,of course there was nothing I could do! Beware!

hello. do you know how many syringes (or cc's) were used? If you had more than one syringe (1 CC), do you think that may have contributed to the discoloration? I've read other posts with complaints and those posters happen to have more than one syringe.


If you only got one syringe, was $1,200 the going rate in your area for this procedure?

Thank you for sharing your information!

I still have the discoloration after over 2 yrs ago. I didn't even use 1 syringe. I had a very experienced injector - a PS who usually does excellent work. When he contacted the company that maked Resty (forgot the name) and sent in my photos they did admit this was a side effect. At that time, Jan 2005, they said it was rare, but after reading this and other boards I would not classify it as a rare side effect. They may have changed their literature since then to include this as a side effect, but I don't know. I paid $425 for one syring and my PS still charges that amount (though I'LL never get near the stuff again!) $1200 sounds outrageously high!

Hi, I'm 2.5 years after Restylane and I still have gray discolouration under one eye. I'm depressed and looking for some hope out there. Did yours eventually go away? I'm hoping some of you are still active and willing to report on how it turned out 12 years later. I'm devastated and terrified that this is permanent!!! Already had 1 shot of hyaluronidase but I don't think it took it all off.
