When I first heard about under eye filler, I was eager to try it out. But after doing some research, I found that many people have experienced negative side effects such as swelling, lumps, and rashes. Additionally, many doctors are against the procedure. The skin under the eyes is very thin, so you are more likely to experience migration and discoloration.
After considering all of this, I decided that the risks were too great and opted not to get the filler. I have dark circles under my eyes and a solid skincare routine, but I still couldn't get rid of my panda eyes. If I do decide to get the filler, I want it to be in the lower area only and not close to my real under eye area. I have deep holes under my eyes and discoloration around them, so the filler helps with light reflection and makes them look less sunken.
If you're still unhappy with your results after getting the filler, you could consider a subtle cheek filler or facial fat transfer. It's important to know the name of the filler used, the name of the procedure, and any associated risks before getting it done. Additionally, make sure you go to a board-certified plastic surgeon. After getting the filler done, it may not look as nice as it did in the first two weeks.
This is because all fillers migrate and it's impossible for a doctor to remove all of it as it spreads. If you're worried about having to do it annually, you could get a fat transfer for your lower eyes which is more expensive in the short term but more controlled in my opinion. Ultimately, I decided that under eye filler wasn't worth the risk for me.
