Many physician use Restylane for tear trough filling.  Since Belotero was introduced many physicians have replaced using Restylane with Belotero because it is a thinner injection and attracts less water.  In addition, Belotero has much less chance of leaving the treated area with a "bluish" tint. It is most important to find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in cosmetic dermatology for the best results.

Less is more

Just keep in mind when treating your tear troughs, less is more!  Restylane attracts fluid especially in thin skinned areas, this can last a long time.  Start with very small amounts.

So good to see someone doing some research before deciding on a surgeon. You're homework on the front-end will pay huge dividends on the back-end.

My recommendation is to start by locating a Plastic Surgeon, Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This should not be difficult to find in your town. Visit the "American Society of Plastic Surgeons" (ASPS) website and click on the "find a board certified plastic surgeon" tab. You'll get an updated list of those surgeons in your area.

From there, make some calls and ask around. Ask the office staff on the phone whether or not the doc does a lot of these procedures, infrequently....a few each week...each month? You'd be surprised what you can find out from a simple phone call.

Ask your friends, people you know from the gym or work. Good results travel fast, so a recommendation from someone you know is a great start. You'll be surprised how many people you know have been to a plastic surgeon, but they don't talk about it.....until asked.

Best of luck!
