Under Eye Filler
What is an under eye filler procedure?
An under eye filler procedure is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure to reduce the appearance of aging eyes, tired eyes, dark circles, and under eye bags. Injectable hyaluronic acid-based fillers, like Restylane® and Juvederm®, are injected through the tear trough to rejuvenate the under eye and restore a youthful, radiant appearance. Neurotoxin injections (like Botox®), topical retinoids, and laser treatments can also improve eye appearance.
Where to Use Neurotoxin vs. Filler
Common eye aesthetic concerns include:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Due to aging, use, and dehydration (which worsens with age). Commonly treated with topicals, laser treatments, and Botox®. For longer lasting results candidates may consider hyaluronic acid based fillers
- Dark Circles: Caused by poor sleep, allergies, and salty foods. Can be treated with steroids, laser therapies, or hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Restylane®
- Puffiness: Attributed to genetics and fluid collections in the thin skin under the eye. Steroids, laser treatments, and hyaluronic acid based fillers can help to alleviate the puffy appearance.
What cosmetic concerns does an under eye filler procedure treat?
- Aging & Tired Eyes: The appearance of the tear trough or thin skin and low fat area under the eye due to volume loss, contributes to an aging/tired appearance. Injections of hyaluronic acid based fillers into the tear trough can create the illusion of a thicker fat pad for natural results and under eye rejuvenation.
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles: Lines and wrinkles around the eye — due to aging, use, and dehydration may consider hyaluronic acid-based fillers for rejuvenation.
Who is the ideal candidate for an under eye filler procedure?
The ideal candidate for an under eye filler procedure has darkening, hollowing, and/or puffiness of the tear trough area (thin, low fat area under the eye). Under eye fillers are not recommended in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What is the average recovery associated with an under eye filler procedure?
MInimal swelling and redness may be present for the first 24 hours. Cool compresses can help to alleviate swelling. Patients should not touch the under eye area and sleep elevated for the first night. Limitations on strenuous physical activity are recommended for the first day.
What are the potential side effects of an under eye filler procedure?
Common, temporary side effects from an under eye filler procedure include redness and swelling. Less common side effects include pain, bruising, asymmetry, and nodule formation. A rare but serious complication is skin necrosis due to intravascular (blood vessel) injection.
What can someone expect from the results of an under eye filler procedure?
The results of an under eye filler procedure are immediate and temporary. For some individuals, multiple initial treatments may be needed to produce the desired results. Results last six months to one year, and then maintenance treatments will be needed.
What is the average cost of an under eye filler procedure?
The average cost of an under eye filler procedure is $800 to $5,000. The actual cost of the procedure will vary by procedure, location, plastic surgeon, and candidate.
