Under eye dermal fillers can reduce the appearance of hollowing, dark circles, slight bags, and deep tear troughs that develop under the eyes to fill out the area, making the skin appear to be more supple and smooth, allowing patients to no longer appear tired daily. The minimally-invasive procedure will only take a few minutes and requires no downtime, making it an effective and convenient option for those who are unhappy with the appearance of their under eye area. Though only a microneedle is used for the treatment, most patients find the procedure to be entirely pain-free, it is also possible to receive a numbing agent beforehand so that there is no sensation of the filler being injected for the procedure.
Your dermal filler specialist will be able to provide you with an extensive list of instructions to ensure that you can get the most out of your treatment, but below are a few tips to keep in mind to maintain the results from your under eye fillers for as long as possible:
– Avoid touching the treated area, any pressure applied to the freshly treated area can result in the filler displacing, so it is important to not rub the area for at least 48 hours.
– Avoid applying makeup or topical creams to the under eyes for at least 4 hours following the appointment.
– Keep your head elevated while you sleep, if possible, for the next two nights to reduce swelling of the area.
– Avoid consuming alcohol and foods that contain high quantities of salt to prevent further swelling.
– Any strenuous activity such as working out should be avoided for at least 24 hours.
– Avoid excessive heat or cold for two weeks, such as using saunas or tanning.
– Ensure that the treated area is well protected against sun damage for at least 72 hours, though proper sun protection is always recommended.
The ideal candidate for receiving under eye filler will be patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their under eye area due to a lack of volume in the skin, appearing hollow, and who wish to treat mild to moderate sagging of the skin under the eyes. A good candidate will also have sufficient thickness and elasticity of the skin and be of general good health. The patients that will be considered to undergo this treatment will also have realistic expectations of the procedure and will understand that the results are temporary, so they may wish to proceed with maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months if they are pleased with the results.
Under eye fillers are about as safe as all other fillers, meaning they are considered to be a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that is not without risks, but these risks are rare. Since the under eye area is more sensitive and contains a higher quantity of blood vessels, the chances of slight bruising and swelling are increased. As with all injectable treatments, and especially dermal fillers, finding an experienced, high-quality injection specialist will be worth the extra money as you will be able to achieve much better results with far fewer risks. Especially for such a sensitive area, this procedure should only be performed by a cosmetic surgeon or board-certified dermatologist. Any skilled and qualified dermal filler provider will ensure that all of their patients are aware of all possible risks and side effects and that the proper precautions are in place to make the procedure as low-risk as possible.
The type of filler that is most commonly used for tear troughs consists of hyaluronic acid, which can provide long-lasting, natural results. Dermal fillers with a base of hyaluronic acid tend to be longer lasting than most other options available, with patients only needing touch-ups or maintenance sessions every 6 to 12 months, depending on the rate at which your body naturally dissolves the ingredients. Most patients can expect their under eye fillers to last closer to the one-year mark though, especially if they take special care to follow all provided after-care instructions and tips from their dermal filler.
