Learn About Eye Fillers (Tear Trough)

If you think your eyes look tired and worn out, even when you’re well rested, eye fillers may be an option for you.

Eye fillers are most effective for people who have dark under-eye hollows caused by genetics or aging, as opposed to lifestyle factors. Some people naturally have sunken eyes to varying degrees, which cast shadows underneath the lid. Eye fillers can help relieve this issue in some people, although others may find surgery to be a more effective solution. Aging can also cause sunken eyes and a dark, hollow look. As people age, the pockets of fat under the eye may dissipate or drop, causing a hollowed-out look and a deep separation between the under-eye area and the cheek.

Deciding whether or not you should have an eye filler procedure is a big decision. You’ll need to consider things such as:

  • cost

  • type of filler

  • choice of professional to do the procedure

  • recovery time

  • potential side effects

  • Eye fillers can work wonders, but they’re not a miracle solution. For example, they’re not permanent, and they won’t address some concerns, such as crow’s feet.

Everyone deserves to feel confident about their looks. If having eye fillers is something you’re thinking about, this blog article will fill you in on the procedure and what you can expect in terms of results.

What are eye fillers?

Eye fillers are used to lighten the tear trough, or under-eye area. They make that area look plumper and brighter. And reducing under-eye shadows can make you look well rested.

It’s important to note that no filler is currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the under-eye area.

There are several different types of eye filler treatments.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by the body. Hyaluronic acid fillers are made from a synthetic gel that mimics the body’s natural substance. Hyaluronic acid fillers have been shown to support collagen production in the skin. Lidocaine, an anesthetic that helps numb the area, is an ingredient added to some types of hyaluronic fillers.

Popular brand names include:

  • Restylane

  • Belotero

  • Juvederm

Who’s a good candidate?

Darkness in the tear trough area is often genetic, but a number of other issues can also cause it, such as:

  • aging

  • poor sleep patterns

  • dehydration

  • too much pigment

  • visible blood vessels
