Under Eye Fillers

by Dr. Stephen P. Bracci

Under eye bag fillers are non-permanent cosmetic materials, such as hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite. Cosmetic fillers 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, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are commonly used to treat the tear trough area or the under eye hollows. These hyaluronic acid fillers should only be 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. The EyeRise technique takes into account the entire area beneath the eyes and avoids this puffiness by also applying firmer fillers, such as Radiesse, that do not hold water. A combination of soft fillers for under the eyes and firm fillers for the midface provides support and natural-looking results.

Why do under eye fillers often result in a puffy, unnatural look?
The most common reason is the experience of the injector and shortcuts. All too often, cosmetic injectors rely on only the soft hyaluronic type fillers because they are generally easier to inject. The short cut approach often leaves puffiness and an unnatural appearance because 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 in turn causes our skin to sag. 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 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 injectables 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. The cannula is a flexible micro-injection instrument which is more precise and provides the best contour in addition to reducing or eliminating bruising. Not all physicians are expert or even skilled with the cannula device for under eye bags and dark circles therefore you may want to take some time to find one. Your physician provider should also discuss the full treatment that combines the right soft filler for under the eye and firmer fillers such as Radiesse 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. There is no one size fits all filler– Belotero is 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.

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 use cutting or stretching of the skin so there is no surgical recovery downtime.

Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are commonly used to treat the tear trough or the under eye hollows.

The EyeRise technique takes into account the entire area beneath the eyes, and avoids this puffiness by also applying firmer fillers such as Radiesse that does not hold water. The EyeRise is considered for optimal results due to the fact that soft hyaluronic fillers such Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero and Voluma have a tendency to hold water if too much is applied. A combination of soft fillers for under the eyes and firm fillers for the midface provides support and natural-looking results.
