Maiman says under-eye fillers are great if you need to fill the lost volume, which means you have noticeable tears and physical gaps under your eyes, but they're not necessarily an instant solution to all dark circles. I have under my eyes very dark and deep with many small folds. It's definitely what makes me feel the most insecure, I've been intimidated by it and I feel like it ruins my whole appearance. I think your eyes look beautiful and expressive and your eyebrows are beautiful.
I also have dark circles under my eyes and ultimately, after researching it, I decided that filling is not something I want to take a risk on. I use a good concealer and concealer (Becca and Nars). I think if it bothers you, there are makeup techniques you can use that will be flattering to you. I like to put a little highlighter on the inner corner of my eye to brighten it, and sometimes I curl my eyelashes and extend the eyeliner a little to create a lifted, more open look.
Sometimes even a good lipstick or shine diverts attention away from the eyes and leads them to the lips. That said, I think that nowadays with TikTok and filters, people put too much pressure on themselves to look “perfect”, but the truth is that it's our little flaws and differences that make us unique, interesting and beautiful. Dark circles don't make you less wonderful. Hollow under the eyes runs in my family too.
My mother actually grafted fat under her eyes instead of injections because it lasts longer and looks pretty good. Of course, she didn't look for someone who specializes in it specifically. I tried the injections once and had no side effects, but they dissolved in 2 months for me. I didn't realize that the rate of dissolution differs from person to person, and that under the eyes is one of the fastest to dissolve.
Ultimately, for me, it wasn't worth the cost or the time of redoing it every 2-3 months, even though I loved the result. And I wouldn't make a filling that doesn't dissolve naturally because of the side effects. Khetarpal says that this procedure is good for anyone who can notice bags under the eyes between the ages of 20 and 60, not everyone is a good candidate for fillers. Sometimes, the body may not respond in the right way.
You may experience any number of risks, or your eyes may swell when subjected to liquids. In a nutshell, adding volume under the eye for anyone who has bags or areas of extra skin and swelling can accentuate the problem rather than address it. However, people with hyperpigmentary dark circles or dark circles under the eyes due to thin skin may receive some benefits by putting a filler under the eyes. I can make it look 60-70 percent better, says Dr.
So how does an injectable under-eye filler work? Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are injected into areas where volume has been lost due to aging or other factors such as sun damage or genetics. The HA filler works by filling in wrinkles or hollows in areas such as around the eyes or cheeks. However high the price may seem, many people believe that fillers under the eyes are worth it. After all, unlike some facials that take time to install, the benefits of under-eye filler are noticeable as soon as it is injected (however, Moran warns that there may be swelling or bruising).
Hollows under the eyes and tear canals are best treated with softer hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm Ultra, often combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve discoloration and thickness of the eyelid skin. There are several different types of HA-based fillers that are used depending on the area of the face being injected and the overall facial structure. The loss of volume under the eyes is what the filler works best for, says Liotta, but it can also be used in some cases to treat puffy bags (known as pseudohernia of orbital fat). In that case, the best thing to do is to try a retinol cream which can help with dark circles and fine lines that form in the area under the eyes, Dr.
This eye serum is packed with retinol and ferulic acid; two ingredients that work together to brighten and soften the under-eye area. After years of asking dermatologists and plastic surgeons what could be done for my tired eyes, I realized that my most effective option was to use a filler under the eyes (or as it is sometimes called; a tear filler) to level things out and diffuse dark shadows. Similarly; if darkness is being caused by an emptying of your bone (which only comes with age), fillers can fill that back. Dermal fillers have been approved by the FDA for use only on cheeks; lips; nasolabial folds; and hands; but doctors often use off-label injectables.
I could schedule an appointment with my doctor anyway and see what they recommend; but unless I'm sure the fillers won't migrate and make my face look lumpy; I won't have the procedure. The Tyndall effect may occur in some patients who have been injected with hyaluronic acid facial fillers into an area. While dermal filler is not technically approved by FDA for use under eyes; dermatologists extend its use near and far (which is designed for cheeks; lips; and hands) thanks to its ability to completely reverse dark circles and bags. For example; if you're interested in treating wrinkles; gaps; or dark circles around your eyes; you might be curious if under-eye fillers can help.
An acquaintance received something called “fat grafts” where instead of a synthetic filler; they graft their own fat (usually from hips or butt) under eye. However; hyaluronic acid is completely soluble; so if this happens; your healthcare provider may dissolve filler by injecting watery substance that removes it from your system.
