Under-Eye Fillers – What You Need To Know
As we age, we lose fat in our faces, causing volume loss. This commonly takes place in the orbital rim (under eyes) causing hollowness and the look of dark circles under the eyes. The thinness of eyelids can also cause the appearance of dark circles. Dermal fillers can be used in the tear troughs area to correct this issue.
What are eye fillers made of?
The best under eye fillers are composed of an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the skin. Hyaluronic acid delivers a dramatic anti-aging effect when placed into the hollow circles under the eyes or the tear troughs.
How long do fillers last?
The effects of fillers for under the eye typically last for 6-9 months after a single treatment although certain fillers last longer.
Are eye fillers safe?
Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane for dark circle correction are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the under eye area.
How Do Fillers Work for Under the Eye Area?
By injecting a dermal filler into the under eye area, you can correct the look of dark shadowing. It’s also possible to treat under eye bags non-surgically with filler. Filler is a great, no-downtime alternative to under eye surgery. “Under-eye fillers are a very common solution,” said Dr. Michele Farber of Schweiger Dermatology Group. “Anyone with dark circles, hollowing or a chronically tired look will benefit from careful plumping with under-eye fillers.”
Are There Side Effects When Using Dermal Fillers?
As with any injection there may be some redness and/or swelling at the injection site, but you can return to normal activities immediately following, as there is zero downtime. An extremely safe procedure, the phenomenal results of the dermal fillers we use can last as long as two years depending on the type and use.
