First Time Getting Fillers: Tear Trough W/ Belotero (Plus Botox) - Carlsbad, CA

I just got Belotero yesterday in my tear trough area. I am a bruiser so expected to bruise and I did (Dr also warned that I would most likely leave bruised & swollen). The left eye (my right) looked amazing immediately but it is hard to tell on the right side (my left) as there was a lot of swelling & bruising. Right now it looks like I will need more Belotero on the right side since it looks... READ MORE

I iced the area pretty good the day of. I haven't massaged really because it looks so tender but am going to give it a try now. I started using Arnica last night...a little late but worth a try! =) READ COMMENT
