Under-eye Filler Treatment

The volume beneath the skin beneath the eyes may be reduced as we age. The hollows can make the patient appear tired even if they are well-rested. The skin may appear crepey, or wrinkles around the eyes may appear more prominent. Also, the skin may appear discolored, especially if there are visible veins beneath the skin.

Dermal fillers may be a good option for restoring the youthful appearance of the under-eye area. Under-eye filler is a non-surgical procedure. The injected fluid typically contains a hyaluronic acid base and is injected directly into the under-eye area.

Those considering getting under eye fillers should have realistic expectations and understand that fillers are not a permanent solution. If they want to keep their new look, they must have follow-up procedures every 6-18 months.

The benefits of under-eye filler

• Instantly restores volume under the eyes

• Helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines around the eyes.

• Removes dark circles under the eyes

• Helps balance the face

• Makes you look younger

The under-eye filler procedure

The procedure is straightforward, including prep and recovery time.
The most important thing to do once the procedure is scheduled is to stop taking blood thinners. Over-the-counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as supplements like fish oil and Vitamin E, fall into this category.

Some patients may wish to have numbing cream applied prior to the injections. If so, wait for the numbing cream to take effect before beginning the procedure. Small amounts of hyaluronic acid filler will be injected into the depressed area under each of the eyes. The procedure should only take a few minutes.

It is critical to allow 48 hours for recovery after the procedure, as there may be some mild bruising and swelling. Furthermore, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons advises avoiding strenuous physical activity for 24 to 48 hours after receiving any type of filler. Aside from that, normal activity can be resumed immediately.

Although getting filler is not a surgical procedure, it is still a procedure with risks. Although you should expect only minor bruising and swelling following the procedure, you should be aware of other filler risks such as infection, bleeding, redness, and rash.
