Under Eye Fillers
If dark circles and hollow, tired-looking eyes are making you appear older than you really are, these common age-related concerns can be drastically improved with injectable fillers, therefore bypassing the need for more invasive cosmetic surgery in some cases. Injectable fillers are a safe and effective way to address these under-eye concerns. Boca Raton based oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Steven Fagien is an expert injector of under-eye fillers to restore a more youthful appearance with minimal side effects.
What Are Under-Eye Fillers?
Under-eye fillers are injectable, non-invasive treatments that improve signs of aging beneath the eyes. Many are comprised of naturally-occurring components of the skin that replenish your skin’s youthful plumpness. Under-eye fillers are generally injected into specific spots based on your individual needs and concerns.
How Do Under-Eye Fillers Work?
Fillers work by adding volume and restoring youthful elasticity to the area under the eyes. With age, your body’s production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid slow down, in turn causing skin to become loose, less elastic and more prone to wrinkles, sagging and thinning. Dr. Steven Fagien uses fillers under the eyes to help to correct these issues. The results may last an average of six months to one year or longer depending on which products are used and how much material is injected. To maintain improvement, Dr. Fagien will advise each individual patient about a follow-up plan and other treatments that can optimize the results achieved with injectable fillers.
What Do Under-Eye Fillers Treat?
Injectable fillers are commonly used to treat a variety of under-eye issues including:
- Wrinkles under or around the eyes
- Crow’s feet and fine lines
- Hollow or sunken eyes
- Under-eye fat bags or muscle rolls
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Prominent tear troughs
Types of Under-Eye Fillers
Under-eye fillers come in a variety of forms. Dr. Fagien uses mainly hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in the body. These treatments are widely considered to be the gold standard for use under the eyelids due to their extensive safety record, minimal complications, and lasting results.
Juvéderm Ultra and Restylane Silk
Comprised of hyaluronic acid, these popular fillers are ideal for fine lines and shallow wrinkles. They are injected near the surface of the skin in areas where the skin is very thin to add volume. Dr. Fagien has extensive experience using hyaluronic acid gel fillers and these are typically his product of choice for use around the eyelid area.
