Under eye fillers

Under eye fillers

We used undereye fillers to fill the space under the eye, which is referred to as “tear trough.” The loss of fats around the eyes (periorbital area)  may result in different cosmetic concerns such as dark circles, under-eye bags, or shadowing under your eye. However, undereye fillers injection has limitations and it may get really costly for larger undereye bags. Under-eye large festoons are usually corrected with blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure that we do not offer.
