What You Need to Know About Filling Under the Eyes

When it comes to reducing the appearance of tiredness under the eyes and enhancing the sunken effect that occurs as we age, hyaluronic acid fillers are a much less invasive and time-consuming option than surgery. These fillers come in pre-filled syringes and there are several different brands and types available. However, it is important to note that tear canals are a complex area to treat and should only be administered by experienced injectors. When done correctly, dermal filling in the tear canal can be very effective.

But it is important to understand that the area under the eyes is incredibly delicate and full of blood vessels, making it especially prone to bruising and swelling - two of the most common side effects of eye fillers. These problems should be resolved within a week, but if they persist, it may be necessary to seek surgical rejuvenation of the lower eyelids. Another potential side effect of hyaluronic acid fillers is a bluish tint on the skin that covers the treated area. This is caused by facial filler particles of hyaluronic acid that are placed too close to the surface of the skin, causing light incident on the area to scatter.

Although HA fillers are generally known to last on other areas of the face for shorter periods of time, from six months to a year, it is common for HA fillers to last in the area under the eyes for much longer periods of time. The tip of the cannula used for injection can slide between layers of tissue without causing any potential nerve damage near the eyes. It is important to understand that eyelid skin and surrounding areas of the face are some of the most sensitive areas of the body and, unfortunately, lacrimal rejuvenation may not be ideal for each individual patient. Once your condition is under better control, you will be able to get a much better long-term result from any cosmetic rejuvenation procedure for the lower eyelids.
