What Can Fillers Do to Help My Under-Eye Area?

The under-eye area, often referred to as the “tear trough”, is not notorious for revealing signs of aging, stress, and puffiness can leave us looking tired and older than we feel. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic treatment offer a non-surgical solution: under-eye fillers.

Under eye fillers, also known as tear trough fillers, are injectable treatments designed to restore volume and smoothness to the under-eye area. They typically consist of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps maintain hydration and elasticity in the skin. When injected strategically, fillers can:

  1. Reduce Dark Circles: Dark circles are often caused by a combination of factors, including genetics, thin skin, and loss of volume. Under eye fillers can help camouflage dark circles by adding volume to hollow areas, reducing the appearance of shadowing.
  2. Diminish Hollows: As we age, the fat pads under our eyes may diminish, leading to hollows or sunken areas. Under eye fillers can restore lost volume, plumping up the skin and creating a smoother, more youthful appearance.
  3. Minimize Puffiness: Under eye bags or puffiness can be caused by fluid retention or fat protrusion. Fillers can help smooth out the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek, reducing the appearance of puffiness and creating a more refreshed look.
  4. Improve Skin Texture: In addition to adding volume, under eye fillers can also improve skin texture by stimulating collagen production. Over time, this can lead to firmer, more resilient skin in the under-eye area.

The Treatment Process

Under eye filler injections are performed by Beautologie's Registered Nurse, Physician's Assistant, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. The procedure is quick, usually lasting around 30 minutes, and involves minimal discomfort. A topical numbing cream may be applied beforehand to ensure a comfortable experience.

During the treatment, the filler is carefully injected into targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula. The injector will assess your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals to determine the most appropriate injection technique and filler type for you.

What to Expect After Treatment

After receiving under eye filler injections, you may experience some minor swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. These side effects are usually mild and temporary, resolving within a few days to a week.

You should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area and refrain from strenuous exercise for the first 24 to 48 hours following treatment. Additionally, it’s important to protect your skin from sun exposure and avoid excessive heat or cold until any swelling has subsided.

Longevity and Maintenance

The results of under eye fillers typically last between 6 months to 1 year, depending on factors such as the type of filler used, your metabolism, and lifestyle factors. To maintain your results, you may choose to undergo touch-up treatments as needed.

Under eye filler offer a safe and effective solution for addressing common concerns such as dark circles, hollows, and puffiness in the under-eye area. With minimal downtime and natural-looking results, it’s no wonder why this treatment has become increasingly popular among those seeking to rejuvenate their appearance.
