Dissolve filler- then see a Board Certified Plastics or Derm
Filler in tear troughs
It looks like either too much filler or too superficial under the skin. Tear trough injections are typically placed just under the muscle along the bony lining. After one year, most of the filler is likely broken down but I would still consider having it dissolved with hyaluronidase. The hyaluronidase will work instantly but I would give the swelling and the skin a few weeks to recover before having this area filled again. I would see someone who is very experienced in filling this area as it can be a tricky area to fill well. Good luck!
Excessive filler under the eyes
Dear Kella, thank you for your question. In my opinion,
the fullness under your eyes that persists after more than 2 months since
the treatment is excessive filler. You need to go back to your provider for a
follow up and ask them to remove the excess amount of filler with hyaluronidase
(the enzyme that breaks down and dissolve the hyaluronic acid filler.) I hope
it helps and good luck!

Don't get fillers in a medspa
First, never go to a medspa for fillers especially around the eyes. Secondly, this has nothing to do with the filler. Belotero is a fabulous filler for fine lines and treatment of the lower lids. The filler was injected into the wrong plane and excentuated the lower lid laxity. The filler should be completely resolved followed by re-evalutation in a week or 2 for retreatment and possible tightening of the lids with c02 laser. Best of luck. In the future, always seek out an expert physician; going cheap often leads to bad results or worse.
