Under Eye Fillers

Do you have tired and worn-out-looking eyes even if you had a good night’s sleep? You have probably used every brightening eye cream out there to get rid of dark circles, fine lines, eye bags, and still no desirable results. This is where a good under eye filler can help. It is one of the treatments that can help change the appearance of not only your eyes but your face as well.

Deciding whether you would get an eye filler or not is a big decision. You would need to know what the procedure is and what you expect from the treatment. So, before anything else, here are a few things that you should consider:

  • Cost of the treatment
  • The type of filler to use
  • How to find the right physician to perform the procedure
  • How long is the recovery time
  • The possible side effects of dermal fillers on your face and body

Eye fillers do a fantastic job in the overall appearance of the face especially the eye area. However, the fillers under the eyes are not a miracle solution, and it is not a permanent answer to other issues such as crow’s feet.

Every person deserves to look and feel beautiful. If having dermal fillers is something you think would enhance your appearance, then check out this guide.

Under Eye Fillers Melbourne

What are eye fillers?

Do you notice the hollowness under your eyes? Melbourne Under Eye Fillers are primarily used to help lighten the under eye area or tear trough. Fillers are administered to “fill in” the area making it look brighter and plumper. It also reduces the shadows under the eye, giving you a fresh and well-rested look.

There are several types of tear trough filler treatments, and these include the following:

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body. Hyaluronic eye fillers come from a synthetic gel that copies our body’s natural substance. It is the best filler treatment in the market today. Hyaluronic acid has been known to enhance the collagen production of our skin. An added ingredient, Lidocaine, an anesthetic, helps ease the pain and make the patients comfortable during the procedure. Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common type of fillers. It is transparent, easy to smooth out under the eye, and less likely to thicken and clump.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is also known as fat grafting, autologous fat transfer, or micro lip injection. This procedure is done if you have a deep tear trough, which can be found in the section where your lower lid and cheek meet. Your doctor would recommend using your own fat as a tear trough filler to fill in the tear trough area. The fat used for the injection is taken from the abdomen, buttocks, hip, and thigh.

Poly-L-lactic acid

Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic, biocompatible material that is injected using the process called linear threading. A great advantage when using this substance is that it significantly revitalises your body’s own collagen production.

Calcium hydroxylapatite

Calcium hydroxylapatite is a biocompatible dermal filler that is made from calcium and phosphate. Its strong point is that it stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. It helps support and sustain the connective tissue, which adds volume to the area. However, some practitioners avoid using this type of tear trough filler as one of its side effects is the treatment area becomes overly white. Some are concerned that nodules would form in the tear troughs.

Pros and cons of each filler type

There are advantages and disadvantages to every filler type. One can be a potential solution to your problem. That is why it is best to consult with a doctor who has expertise and experience in performing these procedures. Having a trusted physician guide you through the potential solution to your problem can help greatly ease any anxiety you might have about getting fillers under your eyes.

Procedure

The procedure would depend on what under eye fillers you and your doctor have decided on. This is where an in-depth consultation is essential before any procedure is done. During this time, your doctor will guide you through the treatment and recovery process.

Breakdown of a Tear Trough Treatment

Your doctor would first assess where the injected will be administered. The area would then be sterilized.

A topical anesthetic would then be applied in and around the tear trough area.

A small needle would then be used to pierce through the skin. In some cases, a blunt edge cannula containing the trough filler is used. While in other instances, the filler will be directly injected through the needle without the aid of a cannula.

In almost all dermal filler types, there will be more than one injection done under the eye. In linear threading, your doctor would inject a tunnel of trough filler into the treatment area as the needle is gradually pulled out.

The process would be different if you choose the fat transfer, you would first need to undergo liposuction which will be done under general anesthesia. In all types of dermal filler procedures, most patients do not feel any pain as most are done with anesthetics. Others might feel a slight prick or tingle but nothing major. Some have reported feeling pressure in the area where the dermal filler is injected. Even if the filler is not injected next to the eye, it can be uncomfortable and leaves the patient feeling as of the needle might be coming near your eye. Most procedures last from five minutes to an hour.

Recovery Process

Generally, this is what you can expect after each procedure:

  • An ice pack would be applied to the area after each procedure.
  • There might be some redness, swelling, and bruising around the site, which is expected and nothing to worry about as it is usually short-lived.
  • A follow-up appointment is needed after a few days to determine if additional injections are required.
  • Your doctor might recommend several fillers under eye injections spread over a period of several weeks or months.
  • Though, for fat grafting, expect a downtime of at least two weeks, unlike dermal fillers, which have little to no downtime.

After the Procedure

Your body absorbs fillers over a period of time. This section also answers the question, how do you get rid of under eye fillers?

Fillers are not permanent solutions. You do need to have follow-up treatments and proper aftercare to maintain your fresh-looking face.

Here is a rundown of how long a typical dermal filler would last:

  • For Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, this type of filler would typically last around up to 9 to 12 months.
  • Calcium hydroxyapatite, around 12 to 18 months.
  • For Poly-L-lactic acid, this one lasts for as long as two years.
  • And lastly, the most invasive dermal filler procedure, fat transfer dermal fillers, would last for up to three years.

Who is the Ideal Candidate?

Eye bags or dark circles in the tear trough eye area is often caused by genetics, but other issues can also cause it such as:

  • Not getting enough water
  • Visible blood cells
  • Too much pigmentation
  • Aging
  • Lack of sleep

Fillers are perfect for those who have eye bags or dark circles in the tear trough area caused by genetics or aging instead of a lifestyle.

Unfortunately for some people, they naturally have tear troughs that cast shadows underneath the lid. Dermal fillers can help relieve the volume loss. However, others may find invasive solutions to be more effective.

Keep in mind that not everybody is the right candidate for these procedures. If you are a smoker or do vape, doctors might not recommend any procedure done in your face, especially the tear trough area. Smoking can impede healing, and it also hampers the efficacy of the results.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women are also not allowed to have these treatments. There is not enough research or clinical trials done to make sure it is safe for them.

What are the possible side effects?

All procedures, even if it is minimally invasive, have some form of side effects. Make sure you inform your doctor if you have any allergies that might give you an allergic reaction, In most cases, the side effects are minimal and usually do not last long. They are mostly the following:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Small red dots on the injection site
  • The skin might take on a blue appearance, otherwise known as the Tyndall effect.

In some cases, the dermal fillers would need to be dissolved.

Minimising the Side Effects

The most important way to make sure that you are going to get the best treatment possible is to choose an experienced, board-certified medical dermatologist or plastic surgeon to perform the procedure. Choosing an incompetent, less qualified practitioner is a gamble and can cause severe side effects like piercing a vein. Serious side effects caused by an experienced hand include the following:

  • Lack of symmetry between each eye
  • Scarring in the tear troughs
  • Tiny bumps
  • Nerve paralysis
  • Blindness
  • Uneven results can give an off appearance.

How much does it cost?

Fillers for tear troughs is a cosmetic procedure and not covered by insurance. Costs can vary depending on where you live and what procedure needs to be done on your face. Typically, you may need to shell out around $600 to $1,600 per syringe or treatment.

Key Takeaways

Many procedures can help alleviate darkness in the tear troughs. However, it would help if you are extra careful as there are filler materials used that have not been FDA-approved. You might be pressured or convinced to try on a new product and end up being the guinea pig, which can be dangerous. If the offer is too good to be true, then it probably is. It can be quite confusing and overwhelming as to which type of solution to use. So take your time. Do not rush. But no matter what kind of filler you decide on, selecting a highly experienced medical professional is the most important decision you will ever make.
