Which Filler Is Best For Under Eyes?

Do dark circles and bags under your eyes give you a tired, elderly appearance? Without surgery, dermal fillers can restore volume to that delicate area of the face, giving you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Why Do Bags and Dark Circles Appear?

There are a variety of reasons why those pesky bags and circles beneath the eyes appear. Sun damage, tobacco use, sleep troubles, and a lack of adherence to a regular skincare regimen are all concerns, but the natural aging process also plays a role. The tissues in our face weaken as we age, and the fat that once supported the eye area begins to sink. Many individuals also develop hollows under their eyes as a result of age-related bone loss in the ocular area.

How Dermal Fillers Can Assist

Fillers assist restore contour beneath the eyes and in the upper cheeks by plumping up sunken areas and plumping up the sunken areas. These injectable gels also encourage the development of collagen in the skin, which helps to fill and smooth the face over time. These fillers can be used all over the face to restore volume, smooth lines and wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. Hyaluronic acid is used in many of the most popular fillers, including Restylane, Juvederm, and Versa.

Hyaluronic acid links moisture molecules together, giving skin a hydrated, young appearance. When hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it expands like a sponge to fill in wrinkles and support parts of the face that have lost volume. Another advantage of a hyaluronic filler is that it can be dissolved or diminished using hyaluronidase injections if you don’t like the filler’s appearance or want a less pronounced appearance.

Which Dermal Filler is Best for Under Eyes?

Because each patient’s facial structure and concerns regarding their eye area are unique, the ideal filler for one patient may not be the greatest solution for another. Restylane, Juvederm, and Versa are three fillers that we recommend for patients with under-eye issues.

Restylane

Restylane is a well-known hyaluronic acid injectable that is noted for giving patients modest, natural-looking results. It is, in fact, the hyaluronic filler with the longest history. Restylane also contains lidocaine, which helps to reduce pain throughout the procedure. This injection is commonly used to plump the cheeks or other parts of the face that have lost fat and to smooth medium-depth creases. It’s very good for the creases around the nose and cheeks, and it’s also used to refresh the hands on occasion. Restylane can be utilized to augment the lips in a different way.

Restylane Dermal Fillers for Under Eyes: How Do They Work?

Hollows and dark circles under the eyes can be successfully eliminated with a restyle. Once injected, each dermal filler acts differently, and Restylane has precisely the appropriate amount of stiffness and elasticity for the under-eye area. Restylane’s delicate approach also makes it a suitable choice for under-eye rejuvenation, where a little goes a long way.

How Long Do You Think It’ll Last?

Restylane injections take less than an hour to administer, and you’ll notice results in just a few days. Results usually last around 10 months for most individuals, and you can schedule a follow-up injection to keep your results. In 2003, the FDA approved Restylane. It was the first time that a hyaluronic injection had been approved.

Juvederm

Another common hyaluronic injection is Juvederm, which is used to treat a variety of age-related facial problems. It can plump the lips, ease facial folds, smooth wrinkles, and add volume to the cheekbones and beneath the eyes. Restylane uses a less concentrated type of hyaluronic acid, whereas Juvederm uses a more concentrated version. Lidocaine is also present, which makes the injections more comfortable.

What are the Benefits of Juvederm Dermal Fillers for Under Eyes?

Juvederm is a filler that successfully addresses bags and dark circles beneath the eyes. It produces more obvious results, making it a viable option for people who have deeper hollows beneath their eyes. Juvederm is also preferred by some people because it contains a higher quantity of hyaluronic acid.

How Long Do You Think It’ll Last?

A Juvederm injection, like other dermal fillers, will take less than an hour to complete. The time it takes for Juvederm to work varies from patient to patient, but it usually does. Juvederm also lasts a little longer than Restylane, with some patients reporting a year or more of satisfaction. Once the effects of the first injection have worn off, you can arrange a second injection. Juvederm was approved by the FDA in 2006 and has since been widely and safely used.

Versa

Versa efficiently repairs lines and wrinkles while also adding volume to the face, despite the fact that it hasn’t been around as long and is less well recognized than some other dermal fillers. It can be used on the cheekbones, lips, beneath the eyes, and in facial wrinkles, just like other fillers. This hyaluronic injection has even been utilized to define the bridge of the nose in some cases.

How Versa Works Under the Eyes Versa can be used to address under-eye bags, hollows, and dark circles. One of the benefits of Versa is that it causes less swelling and so allows for more precise injections, which is beneficial when treating the area under the eyes. Versa also provides both smoothness and volume, making it an excellent choice for delicate and high-profile regions like as the skin around the eyes. After Versa has been injected, some people report it feels more natural.

Who Is a Good Filler Candidate?

Candidates for fillers should be at least 21 years old and looking to reduce indications of aging under the eyes or elsewhere on the face. At the time of injection, candidates should not be pregnant or nursing. They should also not be suffering from any severe or serious medical problems.
