What are Undereye Fillers?
Undereye “Tear Trough” fillers are an injectable gel that can help fill in lines, reduce dark circles and fill in hollow areas.
Are there different types of Undereye fillers?
Yes, there are different types and brands of filler products. The majority of ‘fillers’ are made up of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, this is just an artificial form of it. There are also non-hyaluronic acid and semi-hyaluronic types of fillers as well such that instead of filling, they help with the texture of the skin.
How long do Undereye fillers last?
There are several factors that affect how long fillers last. The products are made to last anywhere from 6-18 months. However, if you have a fast metabolism or an active lifestyle, you are going to metabolize the product faster. Also, product will last longer in some areas verses others. For example, fillers in your cheeks will last longer than fillers in your lips because you use your lip muscles all the time.
What can I expect after my treatment with Undereye fillers?
You can expect greatly improved wrinkles, softer creases as well as lesser undereye hollowing. We also offer injectables that can lighten dark undereye circles.
