Under-eye fillers indications

Under-eye fillers are most commonly used to treat two conditions: dark circles and hollow eyes. Dark circles occur when the colour of the skin under the eyes becomes darker than the surrounding skin. This can happen for a number of reasons, including genetics, aging, sun exposure, and allergies. Hollow eyes, on the other hand, occur when there is a loss of volume in the area around the eyes. This can happen as a result of aging, weight loss, or other factors. Under-eye fillers are injected into the skin in order to correct these conditions. The results are usually immediate and can last for six months to a year.


Under-eye Filler Procedure

Under eye fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure that can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles. The procedure is relatively simple and can be performed in a short office visit. First, the area is numbed with a topical anesthetic. Then, Dr. Alhallak uses only a blunt cannula to inject the filler material beneath the skin. The filler will immediately plump up the area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and hollows. The results of the treatment can last for several months, and there is no recovery period required. Under eye fillers are a safe and effective way to achieve a more youthful appearance.

Tear Trough fillers with blunt cannula

When it comes to treating the under-eye area, we recommend using blunt cannula techniques. This approach offers several key benefits compared to traditional needle injections. For one thing, blunt cannula techniques result in less pain and discomfort for patients, making them a preferred option for those with sensitive skin. In addition, blunt cannulas are much more precise than needles, allowing Dr. Alhallak to deliver fillers precisely where they are needed. Finally, using blunt cannulas allows us to minimize the risk of bruising and swelling. Overall, then, when it comes to reliably and effectively treating the under-eye area, blunt cannula techniques offer many clear benefits over traditional needle

How long does the filler under the eye last?

The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the type of filler used and the individual anatomy of the area being treated. Typically, dermal fillers are designed to last for 6-12 months before needing to be reapplied. However, factors such as age, stress levels, and overall health can impact how long a filler will last in your specific case. In general, treatment of the under eye area tends to require more frequent touchups than other areas of the face as this is a very delicate and sensitive region with limited tissue volume. Ultimately, when it comes to determining how long a filler under eye treatment will last, it is best to consult with an experienced cosmetic physician who can tailor a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs.


Under-eye Filler Side Effects

One potential side effect of eyelid filler injections is called Tyndall effect. This occurs when the filler material accumulates in small areas under the skin, causing a bluish tinge. Tyndall effect is more common with thick hyaluronic acid-based fillers, such as  Juvederm Ultra, than with other thinner fillers. In most cases, Tyndall effect is mild and can be resolved with massage or other simple treatments. However, in rare cases, we would need to dissolve the fillers user the hyaluronidase enzyme. To avoid this complication, we make sure to choose the right fillers such as Belotero soft Soft and inject the filler deep.

Another potential side effect of eyelid fillers is temporary bruising and swelling. This is usually mild and will resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more serious side effects can occur, such as infection, and allergic reactions.
