Under Eyes Filler
If the area around your eyes is dark, the thought of injecting the gel may have occurred to you. We do not blame you. Eye filler is a very popular injection for facial rejuvenation. But the question is:
Is it effective? And more than that, is it safe?
What is a filler under the eyes?
An under-eye filler - also known as a skin filler or soft tissue filler - is a hyaluronic acid used to improve the appearance of sunken areas or discoloration under the eyes.
Thanks to the small area under the eyes, this rejuvenation method does not require much injection.
Benefits of under eye filler:
Lightening of the area under the eyes
Highlighting the area under the eyes
Make your face look fresher
Under eye filler vs. Botox
Most people who are unfamiliar with the world of facial rejuvenation consider eye filler and Botox to be one. However, consulting a dermatologist can help you choose between the two.
Fillers show an increase in volume under the eyes, but Botox reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
How to prepare for gel injection under the eyes
Like many facial injections, the most important thing is to stop taking blood thinners. The most common side effects are bruising and swelling. To minimize the risk of bruising, we urge patients to refrain from taking medications and supplements that can dilute the blood, such as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, vitamin E, and fish oil, 7 days before the visit. Alcohol can have the same blood-thinning effect.
The gel injection under the eye begins with a local anesthetic. The injection is given when the anesthetic remains on your skin for about 15 minutes. In total, the whole operation takes between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the exact needs of the patient's eye.
Swelling and bruising: Swelling lasts about 1-2 days. Patients should avoid low-lying positions or exercises for 24 hours, which help reduce swelling and bruising.
Bruising: For some people, it may take up to 10 days for the bruising to go away completely.
After injecting the gel under the eyes, it is best to avoid anything or any substance that may cause bleeding and bruising. In addition, applying a cold compress to the area several times a day and holding the head up can help speed recovery.
