It has been said that the eyes are the window to the soul. Unfortunately, sometimes the reflection of our own eyes in that window can show tired, sagging and puffy eyes. The good news is that signs of aging can be reversed with fillers under the eyes. From tired to refreshed in less than 30 minutes, under eye filler, also known as dermal filler or soft tissue filler, is a hyaluronic acid injection used to improve the appearance of hollow or discolored under-eye areas. Common brand names of this hyaluronic acid are Restylane and Juvederm. Fillers under the eyes are most effective for those who have varying degrees of sunken eyes that are casting shadows under the eyelid. These effects are usually due to age and genetics versus lifestyle options.  

Fillers under the eyes can build up the deep indentation areas and fade dark circles without the need for surgery. Tear trough fillers are generally safe and less invasive than surgery which would involve fat grafting and fat repositioning. Because the surface of skin under the eyes is a small, thin area, most patients only require one to two syringes of filler per session. Syringe costs vary but average around $1,000 each. Fillers under the eyes are not permanent but last anywhere between 6-18 months. 

Benefits of fillers under the eyes include brighter under eye area, plumper skin, more youthful look, less need for under eye concealer and makeup, and best of all, immediate results. Dermal fillers build collagen and elastin, smoothing the overall complexion and adding volume. Fillers under the eyes provide a natural effect and easily blend softy into surrounding skin while erasing the signs of fatigue. Although fillers under the eyes are generally administered in the thin layer of skin right under the eyes, combining dermal fillers can transform the appearance of the face. For example, research has shown that dermal fillers that are injected into the elevator muscle of the chin are not only effective for lifting the lower lip but can also provide a refreshing look to the cheeks and eyebrows.
