Can You Benefit From Under Eye Fillers? (Before and After Photos)

The delicate skin around the eyes often betrays signs of aging and hereditary traits that can cause you to look fatigued. Fine lines, dark under-eye shadows, and pronounced hollows or tear troughs are common concerns that lead both women and men to seek cosmetic treatments at our practice.

While concealers and creams can provide temporary relief by masking shadows, under eye fillers offer a more durable and natural-looking solution. Many of our patients, having explored various at-home remedies without satisfactory results, are often surprised to learn about the rejuvenating potential of fillers for the under eye area.

Should You Get Dermal Fillers Under the Eyes?

Our patients get under eye fillers primarily to minimize tear troughs, the hollows under the eyes that cause dark circles or shadowing. Combining fillers with laser skin resurfacing can further enhance the results.

Before you schedule an appointment to get under eye fillers, it’s important to distinguish between the conditions you see under your eyes and what’s causing them. Do you have dark circles, puffiness, or under eye bags?

Dark circles: Genetics and natural skin tone are the most significant contributors to dark under eye circles. You might notice the area is bluish or gray because veins show through the thin skin. Your facial anatomy can also exaggerate the appearance of dark circles if you have deeper tear troughs. Fillers such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane® add volume to plump up the hollow under eye area.

Puffy or swollen eyes: If you’re concerned about puffiness, you probably don’t need fillers. Swollen or puffy eyes are often caused by allergies or consuming too much salt, which results in dehydration and water retention. Puffiness is usually worse in the morning if you don’t get enough sleep.

Under eye bags: Small pouches under the eyes are genetic and caused by herniated fat and skin laxity as you age. They often become noticeable in your late 20s or early 30s, making you appear older than you are. Injecting fillers for under eye bags elevates the skin to make them less noticeable.

How Long Do Under Eye Fillers Last?

Depending on the product used, dermal fillers typically last 6 months to a year. Under eye fillers, however, tend to last longer—often up to 18 months. This is because the area under the eyes is less mobile than other areas of the face, which leaves the fillers undisturbed. Additionally, under eye fillers are injected deeper under the skin than fillers in other parts of the face.

What Are Under Eye Fillers Side Effects?

The most common side effects following under eye filler injections are minor swelling and bruising, which you can minimize by applying ice packs and sleeping with your head slightly elevated for a day or 2 after the treatment.

Preparing for Your Treatment

Avoid taking blood thinners such as anti-inflammatories, fish oil, and alcohol for a few days before the appointment. Make sure to eat a normal breakfast or lunch on the day of your treatment so you don’t arrive with low blood sugar levels.
