Dark, sagging under eye circles can dramatically impact the overall appearance of your face, often making you appear older than you really are or prompting people to comment on how tired you look. Here at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, our board-certified dermatologists are expert injectors who have an array of injectable treatment options for minimizing the appearance of under eye circles.
Facial Fillers for Under Eye Circles
Our faces naturally lose volume as we age often causing dark hollow areas such as those underneath the eyes. Through the use of facial fillers, our dermatologists can add volume back where it has been lost, thus brightening up the under eye appearance and restoring a youthful-looking vibrancy to the face. It is crucial that anyone seeking dermal filler treatment for dark under eye circles visits an injectable expert. The skin under the eyes is very thin and an expert injector can ensure natural looking results.
For instance, Juvéderm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid gel fillers that are commonly used to add volume back to the under eye. Juvéderm and Restylane are injected into the desired area using a very small needle. The quick procedure fills in the hollow under the eye, giving the patient a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Juvederm and Restylane results generally last between 6 and 12 months!
Belotero is another dermal filler frequently used to help fix visible signs of aging around the eyes and San Diego Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is one of the few practices in the area offering it. Also a hyaluronic acid gel filler, Belotero is a soft, cohesive gel that, thanks to a unique manufacturing process, offers a natural-looking smooth result. Belotero provides even, subtle results that blend into your face’s tissue to make you look refreshed, not “worked on.” It is a great injectable for treating even the finest lines and creases under the eyes. Belotero results can last up to 6 months or longer.
Injectables for Under Eye Circles FAQ
The San Diego injectable specialists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology have answered some questions here that they are frequently asked about injectables for treating under eye circles.
Q: What causes dark under eye circles?
A: The area under the eyes can appear dark when the thin skin coupled with volume loss causes blood vessels to be closer to the surface of the skin and shadows to fall in a manner that gives the area a dark appearance.
Q: Do injectable treatments hurt?
A: The expert injectors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology use very fine needles and their years of experience to minimize the pain or discomfort of the injection. Pain should be minimal, but if you would like, the dermatologist can apply a topical anesthetic prior to the procedure.
Q: Can Botox be used to treat under eye circles?
A: Botox is not typically used for treating under eye circles. Facial fillers are best as the cause of the dark circle is usually a loss of volume. Botox relaxes the muscle underneath a wrinkle, whereas facial fillers add volume to fill in hollows or creases.
Q: How much does a Juvederm treatment cost?
A: The cost of Juvederm will vary depending on your individual condition, your desired outcome, and the treatment plan recommended by the doctor. During your initial consultation with one of our injectable specialists, you will discuss your concerns, what you would like treated, and the doctor will put together a plan. Cost of your unique plan can then be determined.
Q: How is Belotero different from other fillers?
A: Belotero is very similar to other hyaluronic acid gel fillers, but the results tend to be smoother. Also, it is uncommon for people to be able to feel the Belotero after it has been injected, whereas it is more common with other facial fillers. The results of Belotero are very natural.
Q: Who should perform injectable treatments?
A: It is important that you see a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in injectables for your treatment. With an experienced dermatologist performing the procedure, side effects are rare and you are more likely to get the exact result you are looking for. The dermatologists at San Diego Cosmetic Laser Dermatologist are renowned for their skin care expertise and have years of injectable experience and countless satisfied patients.
