Under Eye Fillers

As we age, our facial tissues start losing elasticity, resulting in sunken or hollow eyes, dark spots around the eyes, and a dull look of the eyes. However, there’s no need to worry when under-eye fillers are available to rejuvenate and revive your past glory. 

What is Under-Eye Filler Treatment? 

Under-eye filler treatment is a minimally invasive treatment that uses dermal fillers to promote eye rejuvenation. This treatment mainly helps to eliminate under-eye bags, dark circles, or an undesired hollowing look caused by collagen loss or fat dissipation. Different filler solutions are used in this treatment to plump up and brighten the under-eye area, adding youthfulness to your face.

What are the Types of Under Eye Fillers? 

Mainly, four types of filler solutions are used to rejuvenate the under-eye area.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is one of the natural building blocks of skin tissues. Its deficiency can lead to dull-appearing or aged skin, particularly in the under-eye region. Therefore, hyaluronic acid-based fillers can offer a viable solution to this problem. Although this filler is a synthetic gel-like substance, it resembles hyaluronic acid found naturally in our skin. Companies well-known for producing this filler are Belotero, Restylane, and Juvederm.

Poly-L-lactic Acid

This synthetic but highly biocompatible material is injected under the eyes to stimulate collagen production.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite

This dermal filler solution is prepared using calcium and phosphate. This filler is known for boosting collagen production and supporting connective tissues. As a result, much-needed volume is added to the treated skin area.

Fat Transfer

Sometimes, the loss of fat under the eye can cause a tear trough in the area where the lower lid and cheek meet. This aesthetic concern can be addressed using tear-through fillers made from the body’s own fat. The aesthetic surgeon extracts fat from one body area, processes it, and injects it into the under-eye region. The fat is generally extracted from the hip, abdomen, thigh, or buttocks.

What are the Benefits of Under Eye Fillers?

You will relish the following benefits with under-eye fillers.

  • Immediate restoration of volume under the eyes
  • A noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, restoring the youthful skin appearance
  • Reduced under-eye darkness
  • A more balanced facial appearance
  • An overall younger and more rejuvenated look

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Under Eye Fillers Treatment?

Under-eye fillers treatment is suitable for anyone as it is not age or gender-specific treatment. Nevertheless, there are candidacy criteria that one needs to meet to get the most from the treatment. In general, an ideal candidate for this treatment has:

  • Sunken eyes that cast a shadow in the under-eye region
  • Loss of fat causing the under-eye area and cheek to look separated
  • Having that said, the candidacy criteria of this treatment tend to be different for every individual. For example, smoking and vaping can hinder healing after receiving under-eye fillers. So, you may need to have a word with your doctor before this treatment if you are a smoker.

How Do I Prepare for the Procedure? 

First and the most important step is finding a board-certified and well-experienced dermatologist to provide you with the required guidelines and treatment plan. Similarly, during the initial consultation, they will discuss your expectations from the treatment and the dos and don’ts of the procedure. 


The procedure of administering under-eye fillers usually involves the following steps.

  • The injection area will be marked and then sterilised using a cleansing solution.
  • The aesthetician will then apply local anesthesia to the targeted area and wait for it to come into effect.
  • After that, they will puncture the skin using a needle and then insert a cannula containing the filler solution into the under-eye region through that puncture. In some instances, the doctors inject the filler solution through the same needle that they used to puncture the skin.
  • The treatment area is small in this scenario. So, only one or two injections are required in one session.
  • The surgeon will smooth the area once the filler is injected.

Recovery and Results

The recovery after under-eye fillers varies from patient to patient. This is mainly because of different healing speeds among patients. 

It generally takes 2-3 weeks for the injected filler solution to achieve hydration balance and come into effect. 

How Long Does the Results of the Treatment Last?

The longevity of this treatment’s results mainly depends on the type of filler solution used. The hyaluronic acid fillers improve the appearance of your under-eyes for 9-12 months.

Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers usually last 12-18 months.

Poly-L-lactic acid fillers deliver a rejuvenated under-eye appearance for two years, depending on how prudent you are in taking care of it.

  • Bruising

Under-eye filler treatment is only minimally painful. This discomfort mainly originates from bruising caused by injections and is usually manageable.
