There are non-surgical options for tear troughs, dark circles, wrinkles, and eye bags beneath the eyes.Fillers for the face are used to enhance volume beneath the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is the most often used dermal filler, and it comes in a variety of brands and formulas to treat creases, wrinkles, and lost facial volume. Filler can be used to replace lost fat under the eyes, which can cause wrinkles, eye bags, tear troughs, and sunken eyes. The area under the eyes can be rejuvenated and lifted by adding volume under the skin for a more young and energetic appearance.
A hyaluronic acid (also known as Restylane and Juvederm) injection used to improve the appearance of sunken or discolored under-eye areas is known as under-eye filler, also known as dermal filler or soft tissue filler. While dermal filler is not FDA-approved for use under the eyes, dermatologists all over the world use it because of its ability to fully reverse dark circles and bags (it's designed for cheeks, lips, and hands)."Many people have dark circles under their eyes, which are shadows caused by bulging fat directly beneath the lower lid or by depression of soft tissue over the bone beneath the eye," says Moran."Soft tissue filler can be placed into the darkened area in both circumstances to decrease the shadow."

The duration of the outcomes varies from patient to patient depending on numerous factors such as the type of dermal filler utilized.

Swelling and redness at the injection site normally go away in less than an hour. Bruising is unpredictable and can persist up to a week.

They usually last between 6 and 18 months, depending on the individual and how quickly they are metabolized. Some people have more, while others have less. People who exercise more are thought to metabolize it faster (though this isn't necessarily a reason to skip the gym), and this can vary based on factors such as skin type and age.
Many patients who have deep depressions under their eyes can benefit from this procedure. However, you should schedule an appointment with a medically skilled practitioner ahead of time because the under-eye area is complicated, and knowing the source of dark circles or puffiness is critical before treating it.
Individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or attempting to conceive, as well as those who have a lidocaine allergy, should avoid using under-eye filler.

This treatment should also be avoided if you are prone to blood clotting or have keloid scarring.

Tell your doctor about any ailments you have and any supplements or medications you're taking so they can see whether the fillers will influence your health.
Despite accomplishing two very distinct things, filler and Botox are frequently confused. Botox treats and prevents face wrinkles by freezing muscles. Fillers replenish lost volume. Furthermore, unlike Botox might take up to two weeks to take effect, filler provides immediate effects. "Nothing, outside of surgery, can improve the under-eye area and the centre of the face like fillers," explains Speed. "While a good eye cream and daily SPF are crucial, HA fillers provide immediate, visible benefits that skincare cannot."
If your filler is going beneath your eye, your dermatologist will almost certainly use a hyaluronic acid filler like Restylane, Belotero, or Juvederm, which can be used in other areas of the face. Because hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance, it is unlikely to induce adverse responses. However, it degrades with time, so your fillers are just temporary.
