Fillers for Eyes

 

 

What eye conditions can fillers treat?

 
Fillers can effectively treat dark undereye circles, hollowed eye sockets and wrinkles around the eyes.

 

What causes undereye circles to form?

 
Periorbital dark circles can develop for many reasons, including lack of sleep, sun exposure, allergies, genes and aging. The darkness develops when blood vessels (and the blood they contain) show through the very thin skin under the eyes. At about .5mm thick, undereye skin is some of the thinnest on the entire body. (Most skin is about 2mm thick in comparison.) That’s why it’s common for people who have never struggled with dark undereye circles to develop them as they age as the skin starts to thin and lose elasticity. To compound the problem, undereye bags (which also result from the aging process) can cause dark circles to appear darker due to shadows cast in certain light. The result is a tired, sunken look that gets increasingly difficult to hide with makeup.
 

How can fillers be used to treat undereye circles?

 
Undereye circles often present two problems: the darker color on your complexion as well as noticeable hollowed areas where the circles meet the cheeks. Hyaluronic acid fillers help to fill out the hollows and depressions in the tear trough area, thereby restoring fullness to the undereye area. This softens the hard angles into more youthful sloping contours and reduces the dark colors that show through the skin.

 

How can fillers be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes?

 
Fillers, such as Restylane and Belotero, can be injected into the skin around the eyes to soften and minimize wrinkles and folds. The effect is subtle but visible: you look as if you have had a good night’s sleep or just returned from a well-rested holiday. This treatment can be very effective when combined with Botox around the eyes.
 

What happens during a treatment?

 
First, local anesthetic cream is applied under each eye. Then, the fillers are gently injected into the hollowed area under the eyes. This injection process takes about 15 minutes.
 

Are treatments painful?

 
The pain level is low. Most clients are fairly comfortable.

 

When will I seen results?

 
Results are immediate. Dark circles appear lighter, and fine lines are minimized.

 

Is there any healing time involved?

 
There may be slight swelling and minimal bruising which typically subsides in 3 to 5 days. A Gentlewaves LED treatment and arnica homeopathic tablets are included in the treatment to prevent swelling and bruising and to aid the healing process. Makeup may be applied immediately after, if desired. Most clients walk out of the clinic looking fine and are able to resume their usual activities.

 

Do I need to take any precautions?

 
You should avoid heavy exercise (running, hot yoga, weight lifting) for 48 hours. Light exercise (walking, stretching) is perfectly fine.
 

How many treatments do I need?

 
One. Results last for 6 months to 1 year, depending on how fast your body metabolizes the filler.
