How is Under Eye Filler injection Carried out?

The procedure varies slightly depending on the type of filler utilized. Your first step will be to schedule a consultation for pretreatment. You’ll discuss your problem and agree on the best course of action. Additionally, your doctor will take you through the operation and healing process during this time.

The following is a high-level overview of the procedure: Dr. Alhallak, Ph.D. will mark and sterilize the injection site with washing fluid. They’ll administer a numbing lotion to the region and wait a few minutes for it to sink into the skin.
Your doctor will puncture the skin with a tiny needle. In other cases, they will inject the filler directly into the region using a needle. The needle hole will be filled by a blunt-edged cannula containing the filler in other circumstances.

Under Eye Fillers FAQs

The wrinkles are formed due to the loss of fat in the peri-orbital area. Fillers such as Juvederm, when applied correctly fill the hollow area and replace the lost volume.
Each eye will require one or more injections. If linear threading is used, your doctor will gently withdraw the needle from the location, creating a tunnel of filler. The filler will be smoothed into place. You will first have general anesthesia liposuction if you are undergoing a fat transfer. Many patients have minimal discomfort during an eye filler surgery. Certain individuals report experiencing a mild prick. As the filler is administered, there will be a sensation of pressure or inflation. Although the injection needle is not put directly next to the eye, the sensation of a needle coming so close to your eye may be rather unpleasant psychologically. The complete treatment takes between five and twenty minutes.
Generally, the following is what to expect throughout recovery: Your provider will provide you with an ice pack to administer to the region following the treatment. Following the procedure, you may have redness, bruising, or swelling, but these side effects are usually transient. Your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment within a few days to check the region and determine whether more filler injections are necessary. Numerous injections spaced weeks or months apart may be needed. In comparison to synthetic fillers, fat grafting requires a two-week recovery period.
While darkening in the tear trough area is frequently inherited, it can also be caused by a variety of other factors, including age, poor sleep habits, dehydration, excessive pigment, and visible blood vessels. Eye fillers are most successful in those who have dark under-eye hollows as a result of heredity or age rather than lifestyle issues. Certain individuals are born with sunken eyes to varying degrees, which create shadows behind the lid. In some cases, eye fillers can help alleviate this condition, while others may find surgery to be a more effective remedy. Additionally, aging can result in sunken eyes and a gloomy, hollow appearance. As people age, the fat pockets behind the eye may diminish or disappear, creating a hollowed-out appearance and a significant divide between the under-eye region and the cheek. Not everyone is an excellent candidate for eye fillers. If you smoke or use e-cigarettes, your doctor may advise against obtaining eye fillers. Smoking may impede the healing process. Additionally, it may shorten the duration of outcomes.
Notify your physician of any sensitivities you may have to avoid an adverse response to the filler. In most cases, the negative effects of ocular fillers are mild and temporary. They may manifest themselves as redness, puffiness, a little red dot at the injection site(s), or bruising. If the filler is injected too close to the surface of the skin, the region may seem blue or bloated. The Tyndall effect is a term that refers to this side effect. If this occurs, the filler may need to be dissolved. If you used hyaluronic acid as a filler, an injection of hyaluronidase would aid in the filler’s rapid dissolution.
The most critical approach to minimize major side effects is to have this surgery performed by an expert, board-certified dermatologist, or cosmetic surgeon. Inexperienced practitioners might result in dangerous adverse effects, such as uneven filler administration or accidentally piercing a vein or artery. Serious adverse effects may include the following: inconsistent outcomes, such as an absence of symmetry between the eyes and small lumps beneath the skin. We will discuss this with you prior to your surgery.

What are under-eye wrinkles?

Under-eye wrinkles are fine or deep lines that appear due to aging. However, other factors may make them appear faster as a lack of skincare or sleep. They can also appear earlier in that area due to tugging, rubbing and stretching when putting on, or removing makeup. Genetics play an important role in developing bugs or shadow in the tear trough area

What are eye Bags?

As we age, tissue structures surrounding the eyes, including some of the muscles supporting the eyelids, weaken. Applying Fat helps support the eyes to move into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy. The fat may be targeted by fluid which then accumulates in the space below the eyes, adding to the swelling. Note that aging tends to make the skin more translucent, therefore, under-eye bags tend to be more visible than they would have otherwise been.  

Why do we develop bags or shadows beneath our eyes? 

As we age, the depressions behind our eyes deepen, making us appear unkempt and trеd. Shadows аlо саtсh оn thе dерrеоn, resulting in the drеаdеd dark еуе circle.

Under Eye Fillers

Injectable fillers can address eye bags without requiring surgery, but only in cases where the bags are light. This may contradict the advice of some practitioners, who claim that they can use dermal filler in the tear trough to treat almost any type of eye bag. It is crucial to occasionally reposition some of the fat that produces puffy under-eye bags. However, even if thе a surgery was performed with a good contour, the adjacent area may still look hollow. The upper cheeks (eyelid-cheek conjunction) or the orbital margin of the eye socket are examples of adjacent areas. In areas where fat repositioning is not appropriate, and an injectable filler can be utilized to improve the hollowing, whether it is a thicker filler like Juvederm Voluma or Juvederm Ultra Plus at the cheek or a softer filler like Restylane, l The number of filler syringes primarily determines the cost of treating under-eye bags used.

How much does it cost to get rid of under-eye bags?

The most frequent treatment for dark under-eye circles is to cover them up  Covering circles under the eyes with make-up, on the other hand, can often make things worse  Some make-up might dry out or irritate the dеlсаtе region around the eye  So, before you apply concealer generously, be aware that there are advanced non-surgical treatments that are far more effective in treating dark under the eyes  The use of cosmetic fillers to alleviate under-eye bags is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments  Its popularity stems from the fact that eye bags are one of the most common aesthetic issues, and because they are more commonly caused by genetics rather than aging, many young people are dealing with them  The most common complaint of young people about eye bags is that they make them appear more tired, worn-out, and older than they are  Fillers are frequently used to treat eye bags since it is common for it to be the patient’s first cosmetic operation, and it is preferable to having the procedure.

Using a Cannula for Under Eye Fillers

Cannulas are superior for dermal fillers since they eliminate some of the problems that come with hypodermic needles, such as:

  • Bruising, bleeding, and edema are more likely. If sharp-tip needles are used, the skin circles beneath the eyes are highly fragile and significantly softer than other parts of the face, making them prone to bleeding and bruising. Cannulas are less likely to pierce an artery or a blood vessel since they push through the skin.
  • Post-operative care that lasts longer. While some recovery time is usually necessary after injecting dermal filler, employing needles extends the time required for recovery. Because the trauma caused by the needle penetrating through the layers takes time to heal (and even longer if there are several injection sites), cannulas are a great option if the patient wishes to go back to their normal routine immediately away.
  • The placement location has been subjected to a traumatic event. Dermal fillers injected with sharp-tipped needles must always be done on-site. After the initial incision, cannulas only require one entry site and can reach a larger region. This single entrance point reduces stress on the skin’s recovery time and allows physicians to access sensitive regions such as the rings beneath the eyes from other locations.
  • Because tear trough lines are near lots of sensitive skin and organs that might be harmed if a sharp-tip needle is used, these features make the cannula an appropriate instrument to employ on filler regions around the eye. Patients are less likely to express dissatisfaction with the pain, recovery time, and overall injection experience. A blunt cannula also provides more accuracy to the region beneath the eye, making it more effective than needles at removing dark shadows and dark circles.

When Using A Needle To Treat Tear Troughs Is Still The Best Option?

Apart from these considerations, injectors should not always use the cannula when administering other forms of dermal fillers or cosmetic injectables. Botox, for example, will not function if given through cannula, and sharp-tip needles may perform better on specific tiny wrinkles on the face, such as the sides of the lips.

The injector’s knowledge of the patient’s anatomy further limits the usage of cannulas. While the blunt-tip cannula’s design eliminates most difficulties with injection site trauma, the patient may still have a poor experience if the dermatologist is unfamiliar with the equipment.

Most cosmetic clinics utilize both cannulas and needles with dermal filler treatments, switching between them as needed. This provides for more flexibility while filling large portions of the face and reduces the amount of trauma experienced by the patient.

Under Eye Bags Correction

We inject a softer hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane Silk or Juvederm Volbella can be used efficiently. Additionally, new fillers are being developed that may be beneficial. A softer filler is acceptable since the lower eyelid skin is the thinnest in the body at 0.5mm in thickness and may move freely with facial expressions — gentler hyaluronic acid fillers do not influence the look of the eyes in the same way that a thicker filler or face implant does. Additionally, the more flexible filler may be shaped and adjusted to match each individual’s particular area under the eyes. The entire technique, including any necessary touch-ups, takes only a few minutes. Restylane Silk and Juvederm Volbela are injectable cosmetic fillers that generally last between 4-6 months, depending on the patient’s metabolization of the substance. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring gel-like material in the body that is properly digested over time and is hypoallergenic.

Certain hollow under eyes and asymmetry between the left and right sides of the face may be caused by volume insufficiency in the upper cheeks rather than hollow tear troughs. The upper cheeks may have a volume differential due to the inherent asymmetry between the two sides or volume loss associated with age. In such circumstances, volumizing the tear trough with a filler may be ineffective and may cause complications due to the absence of an upper cheek “shelf” to maintain the volume.

Structural Volumizing is a specialist procedure for injecting fillers into the cheeks and other facial regions. Structural volumizing injects long-lasting fillers into the bone to compensate for aging bone loss and provide fundamental volume.
This is in sharp contrast to fillers that are often injected into soft tissue, which may be unable to hold the filler’s weight. As a result, the material weighs the face down or creates a doughy or pillowy look. Structural Volumizing, supported by the bone and maintained in place by the face muscle layer, gives definition and youthful fullness with natural-looking results. Structural Volumizing allows for the insertion of more filler volume than standard filler placement. The bone structure supports the weight, and muscle preserves its form considerably more effectively than fat or soft tissue.


Under-eye bag treatment with cosmetic fillers

Without requiring surgery, eye bags can be repaired with injectable fillers, but only in cases where the eye bags are mild. This may contradict the recommendations of some physicians, who may state that almost any type of eye bag can be treated with filler. Filler саn add vоlumе раrаdоxсаllу tо thе uрреr еуе аrеа whеrе fat аlrеаdу саuе a lаrgе еуе bаg, о an attempt to mask the puffiness often mаkе the situation worse.

This is one of the most often requested cosmetic treatments. Its popularity is due to еуе bаgs being one of the most common аеthеtс uses, since they are most frequently used due to gеnеtс, not aging, and therefore many young people are dealing with under-eye bags. The most common complaint of young people about eye bags is that they make them appear more tired, worn out, and older than they are. Fillers are frequently used to treat eye bags since it is very common for them to be their first-ever cosmetic procedure and is preferable to undergoing surgery.

As you can see, the treatment reduces puffiness under the eyes and reduces eye puffiness and fat pad appearance under the eyes. We use only thin hyaluronic acid filler to compensate for the volume loss in the eye orbital and add volume to make the skin surface more even and fix the light reflection.
