Under-eye filler is a highly effective procedure for people who lack volume in the under-eye area and for patients with dark circles. Common factors such as the natural aging process, genetics, the unique contours of the face, as well as sun damage can lead to less than ideal fat deposits in the facial skin – including the skin under eyes.
Lack of fat or volume can give the under-eye area a hollow appearance. If you are worried about your dark circles or if a lack of volume is giving you a hollow appearance, then you might want to consider an under-eye filler procedure. Dr. Passaretti can use under eye filler to effectively eliminate dark circles, shadows, and the appearance of hollowness under your eyes. If you are looking for the best under eye filler in Darien, CT., or even if you have questions on getting under eye filler, then schedule a consultation today by contacting us online or calling us at (203) 884-8624 today!
Under-eye filler can be effective in addressing issues such as dark circles around the eyes, or the appearance of shadows or hollowness around the eyes.
Most under eye fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in your skin and joints. If your eyes have lost their volume due to sun damage or because of the natural aging process, or if you suffer from dark circles, then hyaluronic acid-based under-eye fillers can help in giving a more seamless and softer appearance between the eyelids and cheeks.
The skin around the eyelids is the thinnest skin in the body making it a very delicate and sensitive area to treat. Only an expert who is a specialist in facial anatomy can ensure that your treatment is a complete success. With our experience and skill, you can be sure you will get the results only achievable from a highly trained, expert injector.
“Dr. Passaretti performed my eye procedure about two years ago. Family members (who had had eye surgery from other doctors) commented on how great the work was. Going onto three years my eyes look as young as if I were 15 years younger. I am going back to Dr. Passaretti for another procedure soon. I recommend him highly.”
No. The entire procedure is actually quick and relatively painless. If, however, you are more sensitive to pain or apprehensive, then a topical numbing cream can be applied 30 minutes before the procedure to minimize any pain or discomfort.
There is no downtime required with your under-eye filler procedure. Most patients can return to work on the same day.
Typically, you under eye filler procedure will take anywhere from 10 – 20 minutes per treatment.
Typically, the effects of hyaluronic acid-based fillers can last up to a year. Most patients usually require one treatment per year. However, some patients may require a couple of treatments to ensure a lasting result.
You can expect some degree of swelling or puffiness, minor bruising may also occur. Dr. Passaretti takes care to ensure under-eye filler treatments are administered correctly so such effects are minimal when they do occur. Swelling tends to subside within a few days after treatment, and bruising can take longer.
The procedure is absolutely safe if performed by an expert who has an in-depth knowledge of facial anatomy. However, there are a few risks involved because of the contours of the face and also because the skin around the eyes is the most delicate and sensitive.
If the filler is injected incorrectly, or too superficially, it can give the area under the eye a blue discoloration, also known as the Tyndall effect, or it could give you chronic puffy eyes. If this happens, then the fillers easily are dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
