What is Upper Eyelid Filler and Who is a Candidate?

Subtle changes around the eyes can make a significant difference to your appearance. Upper eyelid filler benefits include improving shape, symmetry and skin above and around the eyes. Eyes look more youthful and well rested as crepey skin is improved and dark circles and hollowness are eliminated. Upper eyelid filler can be used to treat bags under the eyes, dark circles, hollow temples and droopy or sunken skin on the eyelids as natural volume and facial fat decrease with age.

There are different types of eyelid fillers, and while they all contain hyaluronic acid to rehydrate and plump up the skin, they do carry unique and specific properties that make some better than others depending on your needs. Common upper eyelid fillers are Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero and Voluma. Upper eyelid fillers add volume due to gravity, increased skin laxity and fat cell loss between the eyelid crease and the top of the eye. Fillers are temporary but upper eyelid fillers tend to last over a year. 

Although fillers are common, they must be administered by an expert. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon will help you discover if you are a candidate for upper eyelid filler. Patients with a hollowed-look to the upper eyes or wrinkling above the eye due to volume loss are great candidates for upper eyelid filler. Dramatic changes can be made to the upper eyelids without invasive surgery, but results will be determined by the skill of the filler injector. Beautiful and natural results will depend on the type of filler used, the quantity injected and where it is placed. 

If you are looking to rejuvenate sagging eyelids and the brow area without surgical treatment, upper eyelid filler is a great option for you. To learn more, schedule an appointment with David W.
