Without pictures it's difficult to give you a complete answer. However, belotero in the hands of an expert injector would be a good choice for you if you would like to avoid any tyndall effect.

Belotero and Tyndall Effect
The Tyndall effect is due to refraction of light through different media of tissue and can result from any type of product that is injected under the very thin skin of the lower eyelids near the tear trough. However, Belotero is the "thinnest" of the hyaluronic acid based products and the refraction coefficient is not very different and less likley than the other products to cause this effect. Technique is VERY important here and the principles of optical physics apply to the Tyndall effect.
