A finance expert has spoken about the potential side effects of injectable under eye fillers after she was left with a black eye.
Victoria Devine, from Melbourne, said this was the first time she had tried tear trough filler, which is used to enhance the volume beneath the eyelids.
The host of the She’s On The Money podcast shared a video on Instagram and was left with a dark purple bruise under her right eye because the injectable ‘hit a capillary’.
‘I’m not in any pain, I just look bada** for a few days!’ she wrote.

Victoria said this was the first time she had tried tear trough filler – which is used to enhance the volume beneath the eyelids
‘This is in no way the injector’s fault, she’s been doing it for years and years, and I trust her endlessly – just something that can happen to that one in a million, and it was me!’ Victoria wrote.
The podcast host believes it’s important to talk about the possible side effects of potential injectable treatments and be ‘honest about this side of beauty’.
Injectables such as filler and botox often make you look ‘permanently photoshopped’, but Victoria joked that her experience differs somewhat because of the bruise.
Bruising caused by filler injectables often lasts between five to seven days, according to Dr Face.
While some often deter from admitting to having injectable filler, Victoria seemed comfortable about openly speaking about her experience and admitting she gets the treatments done.
Other social media users admired her honesty and some related to the incident.
‘It can happen to the best of us,’ one woman wrote, another added: ‘I love how transparent you are you lovely human.’
‘Yes I can totally relate. I had two Black eyes for 3 weeks. I heal very slow!’ a third wrote.
It’s always best to speak to a health professional before getting injectables.
