More Wrinkles After Filler
One possibility if your skin looks looser under the eyes is that the Botox migrated from the crow's feet area down below the eye and caused some muscle weakness. If this is the case, the issue should resolve within a month or so.
Finally, 1 CC of Belotero is a fairly small amount and usually does not have a large impact on the type of wrinkles you have. You may need more product.

Botox and Filler treatment
The Botox treatment for crow feet lines and fillers in tear trough areas may some time cause appearance of 'Eyebags' in lower eyelids. In your case, Botox treatment seems to be less effective in lower one third. If wrinkles are bothering you, you can have more botox in lower one third of Crow feet lines ( although total 25-30 units for both sides are generally adequate in cases like yours). If you have swelling in lower eyelids area, avoid more botox and let filler settle down in nest 10-15 days.

The photos are difficult to assess the problem. If the Botox can fillers created a worse problem I suggest you return to your treating physician and have them dissolved. The Botox injections may have been placed too low to your under eye area. Those effects can last two more months. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Belotero and other facial fillers.
When Botox and Filler Aren't Enough
Under eye wrinkles
If you are bothered by under eye wrinkles which were not improved by Botox and Fillers, I recommend either laser tightening or radiofrequency tightening. Chemical peels are riskier in darker skin types for giving discoloration, whereas a fractionated laser 1550nm or radiofrequency heating will improve the wrinkles with very little risk.
