Under-eye wrinkles make your face look tired even after a good night’s sleep, usually causing friends to mutter the words no woman wants to hear – “You look tired”. 

Before, the only way to get rid of eyebags is to undergo surgery. Surgeries are costly, risky, and take a lot of time before full recovery.

Fortunately, recent developments on cosmetic technology has brought us a non-surgical approach to under-eye wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid Filler is a quick fix for temporarily treating under eye wrinkles. 

How does under-eye wrinkles filler work?

The fillers most widely used are made of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid (HA) particles. When injected into wrinkles, they replenish the hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally occurring substance found in the human skin. It has an immediate plumping effect under the eyes.

Fillers specifically developed for thin and delicate skin like the lower eyelid are very soft, lightweight, and liquid enough to not cause bumps or lumps. 

However, for those who worried about issues with undesirable side effects such as bumpiness, lumpiness, or the risk of vascular complication from hyaluronic acid fillers, the non–cross-linked hyaluronic acid is a good alternative.

What is non-cross-linked HA?

Non–cross-linked HA is thinner than fillers. As the name implies, it has no links, which allows it to flow much more smoothly and disperse and distribute HA evenly in the skin without the risk of forming bumps or lumps. 

This makes it perfect for sensitive areas such as the lower eyelid as it can significantly decrease the risk of vascular occlusion. For best results, a substance like a peptide can be mixed with non-cross-linked HA to increase the activity of collagen production.

How long will the effects last?

Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill hollows, lines, and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 4 months to more than a year.

Many women aren’t looking for drastic changes; we just want a few years taken off our faces. The above procedures can help us achieve under-eye wrinkle-free skin and enhance a youthful look. 

Remember: much like the rest of our skin, our eyes need rejuvenation as well. They don’t say beauty is in the eye of the beholder for nothing. 

Can we minimise the risks of under-eye fillers?

Wrinkle fillers are among the safest cosmetic procedures in use today. However, like other treatments, there may be some risks involved. To minimise these risks as much as possible, it pays to follow these tips:

  • Don’t always depend on the price tag. If you are offered a wrinkle filler treatment that costs far less than the standard pricing, it’s likely some compromises are being made. These compromises either in the skill of the provider or the quality of the product. Never risk making a bargain with your face.
  • All wrinkle fillers should be done in a medical setting. Always choose a licensed clinic where procedures are done by board-certified, experienced doctors. Treatments done in homes, hotels, spas, or resorts are not being done in medical environments, regardless of who is doing them.
  • Use sunscreen daily to help preserve the filler and help protect against post-inflammatory pigment changes due to the needle sticks from injections.

What’s the difference between wrinkle fillers and Anti Wrinkle Injection injections?

Injectable wrinkle fillers, unlike Anti Wrinkle Injection injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. This causes trouble spots nearly disappear.

Wrinkle fillers can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, chins, jawlines, and temples; filling out thin lips, and plumping sagging hands.

What are the risks?

The treatment is fast and easy. However, all wrinkle fillers have a downside, including the risk of allergic reaction and the formation of tiny bumps under the skin. In some cases, those bumps may be permanent. 

In addition, a bluish skin discoloration known as the Tyndall effect happens. The color change can last for several months, but there are treatments available. In very rare cases, skin cells may die if the wrinkle fillers are not used properly. There have also been a few reported cases of blindness, scarring from skin loss, and nerve paralysis. Typically, the wrinkle fillers that last longer are the ones more likely to cause side effects.

Not every wrinkle-filler is right for every type of wrinkle. The least risks and best results come from using the right one correctly. That’s why you should only have fillers injected by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with ongoing, special training.

To minimise the risks, it pays to choose a board-certified cosmetic doctor with many years of experience in these types of treatments. An in-depth conversation about the procedure is also highly recommended so you know what to expect.

At Skin Club, we make sure to have initial consultations with all our patients to ensure alignment of their aesthetic goals to the procedure they’re looking for. This way, expectations are fully met and results are always in line to what they want.
