Under-eye fillers are an effective way to reduce signs of aging and tiredness in the area. Dermal fillers provide instant results and can last up to two years. An experienced medical provider will ensure that the fillers deliver the desired results while maintaining the patient's natural appearance. Dermal fillers replace the volume loss that occurs to all of us as part of the natural aging process.
The area closest to the lines under the eyes we treated is the “tear canal”, the area shown in the image below. Tear canal treatment is complicated and should only be treated by experienced injectors. Oculoplastic surgeons can treat the immediate area under the eyes with dermal fillers, but this is an expert procedure and not something we perform at Cityskin. Cosmetic fillers can be used for temporary facial contouring, treating recessed areas around the eyes, and filling the lips.
Hyaluronic acid gel fillers are also reversible, giving many first-time filler users peace of mind. In addition, because under-eye fillers are generally injected deeper under the skin compared to fillers elsewhere on the face, they tend to last longer. Dr. Hu explains, where they could inject a different type of filler into the cheek area to try to lower the shadow from that angle instead of, or in addition to, the under-eye filler.
BOTOX and dermal fillers work well together to provide patients with general facial rejuvenation treatment. Fillers that have a thinner consistency are best for treating fine lines, while thicker consistency fillers can fill in deeper wrinkles and lift gaps under the eyes or around the eyelid and brow area. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that naturally breaks down hyaluronic acid in the body and can be injected into the area of filler injection and completely dissolve hyaluronic acid fillers. This gives patients peace of mind knowing that if they don't like their results, they can be reversed. Under-eye fillers are a great way to reduce signs of aging and tiredness in this delicate area. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy your youthful look for up to two years.
