Behind under eye hollows

Under eye hollows create a dark, sunken-in appearance under the eyes. They appear regardless of the amount of sleep you get and make you look tired (even when you’re not!) Many people have a genetic predisposition to under eye hollows (often also referred to as dark circles). Some individuals will notice under eye hollows start to appear with age, as the skin experiences a loss of volume underneath the eyes.

Regardless of the reason, we have several treatment options available at our clinic that will reduce the appearance of under eye bags by restoring volume in the depleted areas.

Everything you need to know about under eye fillers

An under eye filler is a dermal filler used specifically for the hollows directly underneath your eyes. A dermal filler contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring sugar found in the body. When used correctly, an under eye filler can help smooth away wrinkles and restore volume, for an overall softer and more rejuvenated appearance.

During treatment, the dermal filler is injected via a tiny needle into the under eye hollows. Injecting the filler into the targeted area only takes a minute; topical anaesthesia is often applied to the targeted area prior to treatment to help ease any discomfort. Once injected into the skin, volume lost over time is restored in the depleted area.

Depending on the amount of dermal filler needed and the size of the area, an appointment typically takes between 15-30 minutes. Dermal filler treatment requires zero downtime, meaning patients can go back to their normal routine immediately following treatment.

Under eye filler treatments aren’t meant to be painful. Topical anaesthesia is usually applied to the targeted area to avoid feeling any discomfort. Most under eye fillers also come formulated with lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to ease any pain.

Some individuals might experience mild discomfort as the needle is being injected but the feeling is temporary and eases up as soon as the procedure is complete.

Dermal fillers have been approved by the FDA as a safe cosmetic treatment option. An under eye dermal filler is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a natural component found in the body. Because of this, side effects are rare.

Typical side effects include minor swelling, redness and bruising that usually subside within a week.

Dermal fillers are a long lasting solution to diminishing under eye hollows. Depending on the exact filler formulation and the area of concern, under eye fillers typically last between 6 months to a year.

The effects of an injectable filler fade gradually over time, over the course of several months. In the event that a patient is dissatisfied with their results, the dermal filler can easily be dissolved with a natural enzyme. This removes all dermal filler from underneath the eyes.

The cost of a dermal filler will vary depending on how many units are used and the complexity of the under eye bags. For a detailed discussion with one of our registered physicians, fill out our contact form or speak to us directly to set up a complimentary appointment.
