Does Juvederm cause puffiness in the hollow tear troughs?

Puffiness in the hollow tear troughs is a potential complication following injection of either Juvederm or Restylane. We minimize this risk by injecting a small amount of filler material within the tear trough. In doing so, we are able to improve the hollowness while significantly decreasing the puffy appearance. If you do experience puffiness following injection of hyaluronic acid in the hollow tear troughs, this is easily corrected with hyaluronidase.
