Will I get hemosiderin staining under my eye after juvederm?

Is it common for bruising after juvederm to turn into hemosiderin staining under your eyes? I have bruising now. It isn’t too severe and doesn’t look that bad, but I’m reading other people who claim that they developed bad hemosiderin staining after the bruising dissipated.

it's possible but very very uncommon in my experience

Hemosiderin staining under the eyes is very rare, but I have seen it associated with a large bruise.  We often see hemosiderin staining after sclerotherapy of veins on the legs.

I have some success using IPL or Q-switch laser treatments to improve the staining.
