There is a blue tinge to the skin where I have had dermal filler injected

Potential complication of dermal filler injections

If dermal filler is injected too superficially under the skin then there is a chance that you may notice a blue-ish discolouration of the area injected. This is known as the ‘Tyndall effect’.

 

What is the Tyndall effect?

The Tyndall effect can occur when light shines on the filler which has been injected too superficially. When the light hits dermal filler the blue light is scattered more readily than any other colour. This is seen by the eye as a blue tinge to the skin.

 

How to correct the superficial dermal filler placement

This problem can be rectified by dissolving the dermal filler using an enzyme injected under the skin.
