Do Under-Eye Fillers Have Long-Term Effects?

Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers are generally considered to have a low risk of long-term side effects. However, there have been reports of adverse outcomes ranging from chronic lymphoplasmacytic inflammatory reactions to classic granulomatous foreign body-type reactions. Hyaluronidase injections remain an important option for treating unwanted facial filler product in the lower eyelids. Infections from temporary fillers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) are rare, but can cause damage to the skin and subcutaneous fat.

It is important to note that the skin of the eyelid and surrounding areas of the face are some of the most sensitive areas of the body, and tear rejuvenation may not be suitable for everyone. All HA facial filler products are not created equal. Fillers under the eyes can treat wrinkles and fine lines, and can even out the sunken appearance of the under-eye area. The drug that dissolves these facial fillers is called hyaluronidase, which works as an enzyme to break down these products.

Blindness is caused by a condition called retinal artery occlusion (ARO), which occurs when a blood clot or blockage of an artery prevents blood from reaching the eye. If dark circles are caused by a darker pigment on the skin, the filler will only accentuate them. In this case, a retinol cream may be more effective in treating dark circles and fine lines that form in the under-eye area. There are long-term solutions available to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are safer and longer lasting.

In some cases, surgical rejuvenation of the lower eyelids may be necessary to achieve the best possible cosmetic result. The pain associated with facial filler injections under the eyes is minimal and lasts only a few seconds, so it is important to stay calm during the procedure. The most common complication is prolonged swelling that can create an unnatural or “exaggerated” appearance.Fillers have been around since the 1970s, but have become increasingly popular in recent years. The lacrimal canal and hollows of the lower eyelid have some of the thinnest skin on the body.
