UNDER EYE FILLERS
By. Dr Stephen Bracci
Under Eye Bag Fillers Are Non-Permanent Cosmetic Materials, Such As Hyaluronic Acid And Calcium Hydroxylapatite, That Are Used In Aesthetic Medical Practices To Restore The Shape Of The Under Eye Area And Reduce The Appearance Of Eye Bags And Dark Circles.
What are the most common types of under eye fillers?
Hyaluronic acid fillers, or ‘soft’ fillers, are commonly used to treat the tear trough area or the under eye hollows. These hyaluronic acid fillers are used in small amounts in the under eye area as they hold water and can easily make the under eye area appear puffy and distorted when misused. The EyeRise technique takes into account the entire area beneath the eyes and seeks to avoid this puffiness by also applying firmer fillers that do not hold water. A combination of soft fillers and firm fillers for under the eyes and the midface provides support needed to achieve and natural-looking results.
Why Do Under Eye Fillers Often Result In A Puffy, Unnatural Look?
The most common reason is the lack of experience of the injector and the shortcuts they may take. All too often, cosmetic injectors rely only on the soft hyaluronic type fillers because they are generally easier to inject.
This short cut approach often results in puffiness and an unnatural appearance due to the fact that one filler-type alone typically cannot treat the entire area without causing puffiness. The best results usually require more than just filling the tear trough with soft hyaluronic fillers.
Why Do We Get Under Eye Bags And Dark Circles?
We lose the foundation under our skin as we age because we lose bone, muscle and fat, which ultimately results in sagging skin. To learn more about how we develop (eye bags and dark circles.) By adding back a support system under our skin with cosmetic fillers, we can restore the natural, younger shape of the under eye area. The key to this treatment is to apply the right combination of fillers and to make it appear natural.
What Is The Recovery Time For Under Eye Filler Treatments?
Everyone is different, so results and recovery time depend on the individual. The EyeRise procedure, developed by Dr. Stephen Bracci at Verve Medical Cosmetics in NYC and NJ, strives to provide the least amount of downtime for each patient treated for under eye bags and dark circles. Unlike a surgical blepharoplasty, the EyeRise treatment does not involve cutting or stretching of the skin, meaning there is no surgical recovery downtime.
What Is The Most Advanced Treatment Technique For Under Eye Fillers And How Do I Know I Am Getting The Most Optimal Results For The Price?
The key to selecting the best center to treat the under eye area is to select a provider who not only performs injectable procedures on a full time basis, but one who has considerable experience with the under eye area. A large portfolio of before and after photos is a good starting place to view this experience. An advanced provider will also have expertise with, and use, a cannula instead of a sharp needle to perform the treatment. Your physician provider should also discuss the full treatment that combines the right soft filler for under the eye and firmer fillers for support in the mid-face below the eyes. In most cases, tear trough only treatments that are sometimes advertised at low prices, are not the best treatment solution. In addition, there is no one size fits all filler. For example, many physicians select Belotero as the hyaluronic filler of choice for under eye area to avoid the Tyndall effect. An experienced physician will know how to inject the “right” amount of hyaluronic acid and avoid over-fill and puffiness.
