#Beletero for tear troughs
Because of its rheologic characteristics, Beletero is the filler I use the most in the tear trough area. Some of the characteristics that differentiate HA fillers include their degree of crosslinking, their concentrations, gel hardness, viscosity and cohesivity. Belotero Balance, which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2011, is a monophasic double-crosslinked HA gel based on Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) technology that creates a low-viscosity gel product with variable densities of crosslinking in one cohesive structure. The variable zones of crosslinking allow for the product to integrate nicely into nooks and crannies in the dermis and the subcutaneous layer, resulting in smooth, natural-looking augmentation outcomes. The very elastic and cohesive properties of Belotero allow for the gel to be injected evenly and spread homogeneously across the targeted area and into the surrounding tissues. it will not create a bluish hue. In my experience, it can last easily for a year or more in this area.
Restylane can provide wonderful results under the eyes as well, especially when there are deep hollows that need to be filled and lifted. If Restylane is placed too superfically it can create a bluish hue via the Tyndall effect whereby when light passes through it, red and yellow hues are absorbed but blue wavelengths are reflected back.
Studies have indicated that the longevity of Beletero, Juvederm and Restylane are the same, and, in this area, that has been my experience, although Beletero does not last as long when injected in fine lines,as it does in deeper tissues, and may not last as long in the lips as would some other fillers.
I hope this helps.
All the best,

Tear Trough Correction
Many physicians are comfortable injecting Hyaluronic Acid fillers under the eyes and in the tear troughs. However, when reviewing the patient complaints, many are complaining of the lumps and bumps that they see. The truth is that almost all HA fillers are too cohesive to get a smooth natural result and for those that are happy, the volume replacement is small.
The best treatment for tear troughs is fat injections. Fat is replacing fat that was lost to gravity and age.
Now with microcannulas the results are less traumatic and more predictable.

Belotero Under Eyes
Belotero is a really wonderful under eye filler and especially created for the delicate under eye area. It is the only filler that does not produce the Tyndall effect which could potentially leave a bluish hue under the eyes in the injection site. Best, Dr. Green
