Why You Need Under Eye Dermal Filler Treatments

Injectable dermal fillers are safe and effective for filling lines and wrinkles and restoring volume without having to undergo surgery. Dermal fillers are usually hyaluronic acid fillers (HA filler) containing hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in the body, and is a key component of most dermal fillers. In addition to filling lines and wrinkles, HA also adds volume to the face by binding to the water in the skin.

These injectable treatments are also used for the under eye area (i.e, tear trough area) to reduce the appearance of bags, fine lines, and wrinkles. The dark circles and volume loss in the tear trough area may be attributed to a couple of factors such as age, lifestyle, and sleep patterns.

Dermal fillers are a suitable eye treatment solution to lighten and smoothen the skin around the tear trough area. In addition to correcting tear trough deformity, dermal fillers also remove eye bags under the eyes. With tear trough fillers, you'll definitely look energized and well-rested after the procedure.

Kinds of Dermal Under Eye Fillers

There are 2 kinds of dermal fillers used for the under eyes: Restylane and Juvederm. These 2 fillers differ in terms of texture. Restylane lyft tends to be less smoother than Juvederm Ultra and other Juvederm product lines, which is why the latter is used more often to volumize and tighten skin.

Here at Back To 30, we offer Juvederm dermal filler treatments. The Juvederm product that specifically targets the under eyes are Juvederm Vollure XC, which fills and hydrates the sunken under eye area.

If you’re worried about any pain that you’d likely feel once these injectable fillers come into contact with your skin, Juvederm has an anesthetic ingredient called Lidocaine. This anesthetic component allows the reduction of any forms of discomfort during the dermal filler treatment.

How Long Under Eye Dermal Fillers Last

Dermal eye fillers aren’t permanent, and it can last up to 2 years. However, the lasting effect of under eye dermal filler injection treatment depends on a variety of factors such as the following:

  • Metabolism of dermal fillers. Metabolic rate is one factor that affects how long eye fillers last. The components of the injectable fillers are broken down by the body into digestible sizes for it to have an effect, so it will eventually be fully-consumed and excreted by the body. The rate to which this happens depends on your metabolism.
  • Type of under eye filler applied. Dermal fillers generally don’t produce permanent results, but they can be long-lasting. Back To 30 offers Juvederm Vollure XC for the under eye, which can last from 9 months up to 2 years.
  • How much filler was applied under the eye. Dermal filler injection or syringes are usually filled with regulated amounts of filler depending on the treatment plan recommended by your provider. The treatment plan usually depends on your established goals and medical history, so full disclosure of both is essential. In addition, the amount of filler is crucial to produce lasting results, however, this can also produce a distorted appearance so it would be best to stick to your treatment plan.
  • How the filler was placed in the tear trough area. Injectors are usually trained to acquire the required skills to identify the right injection sites and avoid adverse effects. The way that the fillers are placed in the under eye area is a factor in its longevity. When fillers are placed closer to the skin surface, they tend to be more noticeable for a longer time. However, shallow fillers may be a factor causing the Tyndall effect.

The effects of eye fillers typically wear off after 9 to 12 months, which means it's time for a touch-up. As fillers injected for touch-ups usually last longer than those injected for the first treatment, people who return for a second treatment often wait a longer time between treatments.

Youthful Glow, Hydrated Skin, and Amazing Under Eye Filler Results

Dermal fillers work by stimulating new collagen production underneath the skin layers when injected, giving patients a natural-looking volumized and renewed skin. It may take months for dermal fillers to settle in the skin and produce the desired results, but it’s the best option if you’re looking for something more subtle yet effective.

If your dark circles are caused by factors such as genetics, skin disease, and lifestyle habits, then other eye rejuvenation treatments may be more effective for you. Tear trough fillers aren’t recommended for the cases mentioned as it may not improve them. In some instances, tear trough fillers can even worsen dark under eyes that are caused by the said factors.

Consequently, you may also experience disappointing results if you use under eye fillers for loose skin in the tear trough area. Dermal fillers for tear trough rejuvenation correct the color and hollowness of the under eye by stimulating collagen. If you have excessive skin in the under eye, you may want to consider other eye rejuvenation options or plastic surgery to eliminate it first.

FAQs on Under Eye Dermal Filler Treatments

Q: Who can have dermal fillers for the tear trough area?

A: Anybody who would like to enhance their under eye can have dermal fillers for the tear trough area. However, there are certain conditions that must be met to be an eligible candidate for under eye fillers, such as the following:

  • Your skin should be sufficiently thick and elastic
  • You don’t have tear troughs that are extremely deep
  • You have skin infection in the tear trough area
  • You have loose and excessive skin in the under eye area
  • You’re physically healthy
  • Dark circles aren’t caused by genetics, skin disease, and lifestyle habits
  • Under eye sagging is only mild to moderate

Undergoing the procedure despite not being eligible for it may obtain disappointing results. Consult with a plastic surgeon or a qualified medical aesthetic provider to ensure the effectiveness and safety of under eye dermal filler treatments.

Q: What should I do if fillers fade within 2 weeks after the procedure?

A: There are cases like this because of swelling that occurred in your under eye as the fillers were injected. So once the swelling subsides, the under eyes also seem to return to their hollow state. This is why aesthetic providers usually overfill the tear trough area. When under eye fillers fade less than its projected lasting effect, schedule a touch-up session with your provider to achieve your desired effect.

Q: Why do you need to regularly touch-up your under eye dermal fillers?

A: Results from dermal fillers aren’t permanent. Eventually, your body will fully metabolize and consume the fillers so your under eye would return to its normal state. Maintenance treatments or touch-ups help sustain the effect by helping the skin store extra collagen. If you’re worried about the frequency of touch-up treatments, the succeeding dermal fillers injected into the skin usually last longer compared to those injected during the first treatment session.

Q: How often should you have maintenance treatments for under eye fillers?

A: Regular touch-ups are recommended to be done way before the effects of the prior session fade. This is usually done every 3 to 6 months after the projected lasting effect of your under eye dermal fillers. However, it’s still best to consult your aesthetic provider when it comes to the frequency and timing of maintenance treatments.

Q: What are some expected side effects after under eye filler treatments?

A: Dermal filler treatments such as Juvederm Vollure XC are usually safe with minimal downtime and side effects. The adverse effects from this procedure are merely temporary reactions that occur at the injection site, and can last up to a week or less. Consult with your provider if the side effects last for more than a week. Some expected side effects include:

  • Pain
  • Itching
  • Swelling and lumps
  • Firmness and tenderness
  • Bruising, redness or discoloration

Additionally, this procedure can also result in a rare side effect called Tyndall effect, which is described as a visible discoloration in the tear trough area. Consultations must always be done especially since some patients have thin under eye skin and are more prone to this side effect.
