Under-Eye Filler

Home | Treatments | Under-Eye Rejuvenation

The loss of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin from the midface region due to age leads to the formation of sunken tear troughs under the eyes. However, hyaluronic acid-based tear trough fillers restore volume to the under-eye region, making you look rested and youthful.

What is Under-Eye Rejuvenation?

Under-eye rejuvenation is a non-surgical procedure wherein dermal fillers are used to restore youthfulness to the under-eye region. Dermal fillers add hyaluronic acid underneath the skin or encourage collagen production to reverse the age-related loss of volume from the under-eye region. This makes your eyes look well-rested, youthful, and alert with our under-eye filler in Miami.

What Does Under-Eye Rejuvenation Treat?

Under-eye rejuvenation treats tear troughs and fine lines around the eyes. Tear troughs occur due to the loss of collagen and elastin from the under-eye region, which, in turn, leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Under-eye rejuvenation adds volume and fills out the fine lines.

How Does Under-Eye Rejuvenation Work?

Dr. Fernandez performs under-eye rejuvenation with dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Versa, and Belotero. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that makes your skin look smooth, soft, and voluminous. Each filler has a unique consistency suitable for different treatment areas and goals. Dr. Fernandez ensures natural results for your tear trough fillers in Miami.

You’re the Ideal Candidate for Under-Eye Rejuvenation if You:

  • Are at least 21 years of age
  • Are in generally good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the treatment
  • Are not pregnant
  • Don’t have a history of severe allergies
  • Don’t have underlying medical conditions that preclude this treatment
  • Have moderate-to-severe tear troughs and dark circles under the eyes

What Happens During Under-Eye Rejuvenation?

Dr. Fernandez carefully examines your under-eye region, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history. Based on his thorough evaluation, he selects the ideal dermal fillers for your specific needs. A topical anesthesia is applied to your skin under the eye to ensure comfort. Finally, Dr. Fernandez injects the chosen fillers into the area under your lower eyelids using ultrafine needles. The treatment concludes in 15 to 20 minutes.

What Are the Side Effects of Under-Eye Rejuvenation?

Under-eye rejuvenation is a safe procedure with minimal side effects that dissipate within a few days. You may experience redness, swelling, discomfort, and tenderness, but you can resume your daily activities and work immediately. You can reduce the swelling with ice or cold compresses.

What Are the Results Like?

Under-eye rejuvenation provides instant results — your tear troughs will look filled, soft, and smooth. The results will gradually improve as the side effects dissipate. The final results last for several months, depending on the chosen filler, following which you’ll need maintenance treatments.

Undereye Filler FAQs

Is under-eye filler a painful procedure?

Under-eye filler procedures are generally well-tolerated, with mild discomfort. Most dermal fillers contain a numbing agent called lidocaine, so the treatment causes minimal discomfort. Furthermore, we can also apply a numbing gel before treatment for additional comfort. Most individuals find the procedure manageable and worth the minimal discomfort.

Can I combine under-eye filler with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, under-eye fillers can be combined with other cosmetic treatments like Botox or dermal fillers in different areas. Please consult our qualified practitioners to discuss your goals and create a personalized treatment plan.

Does under-eye filler require any anesthesia?

Topical numbing creams are typically used to minimize discomfort during under-eye filler injections. In some cases, a local anesthetic may be used for added comfort, but general anesthesia is not required.

How much downtime can I expect after under-eye filler treatment?

Most individuals can return to normal activities — barring strenuous workouts — immediately after under-eye filler treatment. Some swelling or bruising may occur, but it typically resolves within a few days, and makeup can be used to conceal any temporary discoloration.

Can I have multiple sessions of under-eye filler, and if so, how soon can I schedule them?

Yes, multiple sessions can be scheduled, depending on your desired results. It’s common to have touch-up sessions every 6-12 months, but you can also opt for additional sessions before that period to enhance your results. You should generally wait a few weeks between sessions to give the filler enough time to settle into your tissues. Please consult our providers to discuss your goals and receive a personalized recommendation.
