Expectations One Week Post Belotero
It is not unusual to still see swelling one week after filler injections in lower eyelid area, given the high propensity of swelling with any manipulation of this fragile area. Allow another 2 weeks or so for swelling to resolve. I typically see my post-op filler patients at 2 weeks after procedure. That is a good time for your clinician to intervene.
All injectables can result in swelling. The skin around the eye is very thin and therefore will show the swelling and bruising more prominently than thicker skin of the cheeks and around the mouth. Be patient. If it does not resolve after several weeks, return to your physician for hyaluronidase injections to dissolve the filler.
It is not uncommon to have swelling under the eyes after belotero. This can take sometimes 2-3 weeks to completely resolve. I would suggest waiting and then going back to your provider so he/she can further evaluate you. Good Luck.
Hello and thanks for your question. Swelling after Belotero injections under the eyes can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks. I would give it some time to see if it gets better. Either way, you should definitely follow up with the person that did your injections so he/she can evaluate you. Worse comes to worse, if you are not happy with your results you can have the Belotero dissolved using Hyaluronidase. Good luck to you!

Thank you for posting the pictures.
It is not clear if both products were injected at the same time.
I agree that the before pictures are much better and that you had better features before product placement.
Wait 3 weeks before you consider dissolution with Vitrase.
