Remove Shadows under the Eyes
Dermal facial fillers can be used for improving deformity and volume deficiency in the lower eyelids. It can reduce the amount of visible herniated fat that people may acquire with age. Under eye fillers can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation that is another concern in such cases.
Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides dermal filler injections for the reduction or removal of the shadow of the lower eyelids to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Advantages of Soft Tissue Fillers for Under-Eye Rejuvenation
The overall aim of soft tissue injectables in the under-eye area is for improving thinning under-eye skin and rhytids (wrinkles). Thinning skin can cause sagging. Dermal fillers can also be used for decreasing bulging fat under the eyes as well as tear trough depression.
Fat is used by plastic surgeons for filling tear trough depression. This can result in swelling that may last weeks. There are the occasional issues of lump formation as well. Juvederm and Restylane results can be reversed or altered if patients are unhappy with them. The enzyme hyaluronidase can be used for dissolving and degrading hyaluronic acid products.
Soft tissue fillers can be used for thickening the anterior lamella or the orbicularis muscle and lower eyelid skin. It can be used for adding volume to the tear trough depression. Dermal fillers can also be used for hiding underlying signs of aging.
How Successful are Lower Eyelid Filler Injections?
Dermal filler injectable procedure is highly technique dependent. Tear trough deformities in young patients is generally not because of thinning skin. A 20-year-old with a nice thick dermis may suffer under-eye concerns because of a volume problem. The treatment provider in this case may use a significantly deep injection technique.
The physician may make use of the sandwich technique if you have thinning soft tissues and severe tear trough deformities. This involves placing a thin, large, superficial sheet on top of the orbicularis oculi muscle. This muscle is responsible for closing the eye. A similar sheet will be placed below the orbicularis oculi as well.
The medical spa technique allows for insertion of more gel in the area. It helps in making the soft tissues thick that allows for camouflaging of the underlying aging problems across the lower orbit.
Ideal Candidates for Lower Eyelid Dermal Fillers
- You are not a suitable candidate if you have significant lower eyelid fat. You should consider getting a lower-lid blepharoplasty instead.
- Dermal fillers are appropriate when you have had a previous lower lid surgery and have volume concerns. Fillers can be used for restoring volume in the area.
- You should understand that dermal fillers cannot help with skin-lightening. They are not recommended for dark circles. However, they can help with light shadowing that contributes to dark circles under the eyes.
- Dermal filler results are temporary or semi-permanent. You may be an ideal candidate for autologous fat transfer or blepharoplasty if you are looking for results that are permanent in nature.
