Bumps after Belotero
Belotero is a very light hyaluronic based filler. It is placed very superficially in fine lines. Usually it will smooth out on its own. In your case, it did not smooth out. Your physician can massage it and often smooth the lumps and bumps away. If that does not work, it can be dissolved with hyaluronidase of hylenex.
Bumps persisting after 3 weeks post fillers
Dear Suz1422,If in fact it has been 3 weeks since your belotero injection, it's unlikely that the bumps are from swollen tissue. Most likely it's the filler that's visible. Belotero is a hyaluronic acid based product and can easily be reversed or at least decreased in volume by using a reversal enzyme called hyaluronidase (Hylenex). Best, Dr. Soleiman.

It appears that the lumps are from the Belotero and I would suggest you have it dissolved with Vitrase. Please consult an expert since more Botox would probably have been better for you. Best, Dr. Green
Belotero in forehead wrinkles
Based on your photos it does seem that there is an obvious ridge or line where the filler was placed. Thin fillers like Restylane Silk and Belotero diffuse into the surrounding skin very well, but since this has persisted 3 weeks in your case I would most likely suggest that you consider hyaluronidase injections to dissolve the filler then reassess after a week or two to see if you feel that trying filler once again in that same spot would be worth it.

Please make sure you are seeing an expert injector for treatment in this area. The anatomy is more complex with numerous blood vessels which can be affected with improper injections.
Best of luck,
