Still Puffy and bruised after Belotero 2 weeks ago...

I think Belotero is a great product for tear troughs.  It is softer than Restylane and Juvederm so it usually lays a little better and produces less swelling.  Without it photo it is hard to know how swollen or bruised you are. But by two weeks it should be looking pretty good.  If this is not the case, I recommend you see your provider again for a follow up evaluation. Perhaps there is something more they can do to speed up the healing process.

Belotero in Tear Troughs - don't recommend

Something like Restylane and Juvederm are best for the tear troughs until more experience is gained with a new product like Belotero. I would recommend that you see the provider that injected this area.
