What is Under-Eye Filler?

Are you tired of looking tired? Many patients suffer from hollowed-under eyes or bags as a result of genetics, aging and other causes. This gives an appearance of looking tired.  Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) has been the go-to solution to this concern, but some younger patients often find their concerns are not dramatic enough to require surgery.

Fortunately, under-eye filler is a revolutionary non-invasive solution specifically designed for this very reason. If you’ve been searching for a means to improve your under-eye appearance, at Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists we provide safe and effective under-eye filler treatments to rejuvenate, restore, and refresh your look.

Under-eye filler, or tear trough filler, is a minimally invasive cosmetic injection that addresses hollows or contour deformity at the eyelid cheek junction. The active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a formulated gel substance that provides fullness to the under eye and restores volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the eye and joints and utilizing it in cosmetic practice can significantly improve volume loss and skin laxity.

Generally, patients for under-eye filler must meet the following criteria:

  • Do not have large under-eye fatty deposits (“eye bags”).
  • Do not have significant dark circles.
  • Do have sunken or hollowed under eyes.
  • Do have realistic expectations.
  • Are in good health.
  • Have only mild skin laxity.

The following individuals are not good candidates for under-eye fillers.

  • History of allergies.
  • Chronic under-eye or cheek swelling (festoons).
  • History of thyroid eye disease
  • Significant skin laxity.
  • History of adverse reaction to fillers.
  • Large herniated fat pads (“eye bags”).

The Under Eye Filler Process

At Arizona Oculoplastic Specialists, our team of skilled medical professionals begin every cosmetic treatment with a consultation during which we will get an understanding of your concerns and tailor your treatment plan accordingly. The actual procedure is less than 30 minutes long. First, a topical numbing cream is applied. Ice is also applied to the area to help with any discomfort and reduce bruising. Typically, a blunt cannula is used to meticulously place small amounts of the filler in the pre-marked areas. Aftercare instructions will be given.
