The skin around the eyes can be one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. If you feel your eyes are showing the effects of aging with lack of volume and sagging or wrinkled skin, there are solutions which can successfully counteract this. Dermal fillers under the eyes are a quick and minimally invasive way to reverse the signs of aging in this area. With our dermal fillers we are able to re-introduce lost volume, rejuvenating the look and feel of the areas around your eyes.
The skin under the eyes is especially thin, so the dermal filler injections must be handled with care and precision to achieve the best possible results. When performed properly, these fillers can eliminate fine lines, creases and bags under the eyes almost instantly. Results from dermal fillers under the eye appear immediately and will generally last anywhere from 6 months to a year, depending on the filler used. The treatment can be repeated regularly to maintain attractive results.
It is very important that patients have realistic expectations of what dermal fillers can achieve. The truth is that every patient is different. No two people will have the exact same results from an eye dermal filler procedure. The type of filler, the amount of filler and the location of the injections will be determined based on each person’s unique anatomy and the conditions being addressed. Side effects from dermal fillers are similar to that of BOTOX. Some common injection-related reactions such as swelling, bruising, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site may occur.
