Belotero and swelling at 4 days after injection
It is too early (at 4 days) to determine if the swelling is from having had 'too much product" or from swelling and bruising related to the injection.
It is a good practice to be judicious in limiting the volume of filler injected under the eye, especially if it is the first time for a patient.
I would wait 2-3 weeks before you decide if you want "excessive product dissolved with Vitrase.
The injection of fillers is often associated with bruising
and swelling in the treatment area. The extent of the bruising is related to
the technique used, the location of the filler, and each person’s specific
anatomy. Swelling initially occurs due to the trauma of injection and
subsequently occurs as the product attracts water to the surrounding tissues.
The swelling is often worse in the morning and improves throughout the day. The
swelling often lasts for few days to a few weeks. If the swelling persists, however,
improvement may be achieved by removing some of the filler using hylaronidase.
A detailed examination will help delineate the best option. A formal
consultation with a plastic surgeon is the next best step.
Swelling after Belotero Injections
Belotero is a great injection designed for the area under the eyes. Some localized swelling and bruising are all normal after the procedure. If after two weeks you still have this swelling you should return to your treated physician for evaluation. If there is still swelling from too much product it can be reversed with Hyaluronidase. For the best results please consult aboard certified dermatologist with experience with Belotero and other cosmetic facial injections.
Swelling after Belotero injection
Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear you have eyelid swelling following Belotero injection. This can be a frequent problem and may take several weeks to resolve. The product can be reversed with Vitrase ( a brand of Hyaluronidase ) injection. You should discuss this with the doctor that did your injection. Good luck.
Hi Rach. This could be either swelling or too much filler. It is too early to tell at this point. Any swelling should completely settle down around 2 weeks or so. I suggest you follow up with your injector in 2 weeks. If there is still significant puffiness then it is likely too much filler and will need to be addressed. Hope this helps answer your question.
Lower eyelids swelling after Belotero.
Your provided photo is too far away to analyze your eyelids up close, but any dermal filler to the eyelids can cause some eyelid swelling. If it persists or becomes painful then I would check with your injector. There is an enzyme "hyaluronidase" that can reduce the filler effects if this becomes necessary. I would recommend doing some cool compresses 5-10 minutes a few times a day for a few days. I think Belotero has been an outstanding product for the lower eyelids, but issues can occur. Best regards.
Puffiness after tear trough injection
Injecting in the tear trough area with ANY product is difficult and requires much skill. You may still be experiencing some swelling from the procedure itself. It's always best to evaluate the results of fillers and relaxers about 2 weeks after the treatment. In the interim, try Arnica Montana, which comes in ointment and tablet form. It's over-the-counter and acts as a natural bruise reducer and anti-inflammatory. If at 2 weeks, you still have the "bags", you can ask your doctor to dissolve the Belotero with hyaluronidase, which will start working within hours. Patience is difficult when your face is involved, but give it another 10 days. I wish you well!
