Would Juvederm used for cheek enhancement act as a barrier and cause puffiness under eye?

Juvederm and Belotero and side effects
Juvederm Voluma is a fabulous product for injecting the mid-face area. It gives an immediate lift to the cheeks and the results last for approximately one year. Belotero is fabulous for the under eye area and fills in the tear trough area effectively. Any filler can cause some puffiness which should resolve within two weeks. If there is any puffiness after that time it is possible that either too much product was injected or done too superficially in which case Vitrase can be injected to dissolve the product. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with facial cosmetic injections.

Belotero in The Tear Trough Area is a Good Choice
Juvederm in the cheeks — what kind of Juvederm as there are several – including the new Voluma brand. These are injected into the mid cheeks and if not done by someone skilled in how this is supposed to be done, one can see puffiness under the eyes. This may go down in the next several days but if it does not, please go back to your provider and see what is going on and whether you will need some hyaluronidase to make some of the material go away.
These injections need to be given in an office of a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon — they know these materials the best and the associated anatomy of the areas you are wanting injected — good luck.
