Know the Basics of Under-Eye Fillers

Under-eye hollowness and dark circles are major contributors to a weary, aged appearance. They often develop from the gradual loss of under-eye fat and collagen, which causes the skin and tissue to sag and look hollow. These shifts are typically associated with becoming older or being a product of your genes.

Many opt for concealers as a quick cure to hide unattractive features. However, advances in the beauty business have led to products with longer-lasting effects. Getting a filler for the hollows of your eyes is one option.

Technically, What Are Under-Eye Fillers?

Dermal fillers, often known as under-eye fillers, are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin. Fillers’ active components stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin, which plump out the skin and make it look and feel younger.

Different dermal fillers have different main active ingredients; hence their effects will be different on the skin. Hyaluronic acid, poly-l-lactic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite are dermal fillers’ most frequently used active components.

Their main variants and features are outlined below:

Calcium Hydroxylapatite

Calcium hydroxylapatite is a synthetic substance that significantly increases collagen production, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and adds volume to the skin. Since it could cause lumps and pigmentation disorders, it is rarely utilized in that location, which is right beneath the eyes.

Nasolabial folds are a common target for this filler. Radiesse is the most widely used brand of calcium hydroxylapatite fillers.

Fat Transfer

If a patient needs a lot of volumes replaced around their eyes, dermal fillers might not be the best option. To perform this operation, a medical professional will harvest fat from a different location of the patient’s body and then inject it into the problem region.

Results from a fat transfer can be more long-lasting than those from other procedures—sometimes even up to three years. However, liposuction, the removal of fat from another portion of the body, makes this treatment more invasive than dermal fillers.

Hyaluronic Acid

The under-eye dermal filler most commonly used is hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid are generally well-tolerated because our bodies manufacture this substance naturally, and there is little risk of adverse responses like allergies or lumps. Juvéderm and Restylene are the two most well-known hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler products now available.

Dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid (HA) have the distinct benefit of being reversibly degraded by the naturally occurring enzyme hyaluronidase. When the patient is dissatisfied with the outcome, this is helpful.

Poly-L-Lactic Acid

Synthetic poly-l-lactic acid filler helps restore collagen. The results are slower in coming, but they persist far longer than those of other fillers.

The wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and chin are the most common targets for fillers made of poly-l-lactic acid. Sculptra is by far the best-known brand of poly-L-lactic acid filler.

Who Benefits Most from Under-Eye Fillers?

If you’ve noticed a decrease in volume behind your eyes due to age or heredity, dermal fillers may be able to help. Dermal fillers are not effective for treating dark circles under the eyes caused by hyperpigmentation or poor lifestyle choices.

Sometimes, the operation may not be safe for nursing or expectant mothers. People who smoke should avoid it as well because it can slow down the healing process.

Is the Method Safe?

When administered by trained, certified dermatologists, fillers under the eyes are completely risk-free. Although fillers have yet to receive official FDA approval for use in under-eye cosmetic operations, they are commonly utilized for this purpose instead.

The use of blood thinners should be discontinued in the pre-operation period as directed by your doctor to guarantee the safety of the procedure. You can reduce the likelihood of bruising and swelling by not drinking alcohol.

The skin surrounding your eyes is very thin and full of tiny blood vessels, so it’s essential to find a qualified doctor to work on it. Only a trained professional with expert understanding will know how to inject the filler properly, preventing any harm from occurring.

Is It Uncomfortable?

Patient experiences during under-eye filler injections often consist of a minor pricking sensation or pressure. Some people get nervous because the needle is so close to their eye. Thanks to the numbing cream, there will be very little pain during the treatment.

And there you have it!

Overall, it is important to know the basics of under-eye fillers before getting them done. There are different types of fillers available, and each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. It is thus crucial to consult with a qualified physician to determine which type of filler is best suited for you.
