Swelling under the eyes after Belotero injection
Belotero is composed of hyaluronic acid which has a high affinity to bind water. Additionally, the injection process of a needle contacting your skin will also release small quantities of a substance called histamine, which can lead to temporary swelling of the skin. All together, it is common for the first few days to weeks to experience swelling following Belotero or any injectable hyaluronic acid. Sleeping on 2 pillows at night and cool compresses can assist with the swelling. I would recommend contacting your treating physician if there is any persistent swelling over two weeks, in order for you to receive the appropriate evaluation.

Swelling is very common after having fillers injected, give it a full two weeks to settle before seeing your final result.
