Do you often find yourself looking tired and worn out, even when you’ve had a good night’s sleep? Dark circles and eye bags, including the tear-trough area, can make us look constantly fatigued, which can affect our confidence and self-esteem. Not only that, but the prominence of blood vessels under the eyes can also contribute to this tired appearance. Fortunately, there is a solution that can help improve the appearance of these under-eye concerns – tear trough fillers. In this article, we will discuss how under-eye fillers can address eye bags.

What are Eye Bags?

Eye bags, also known as periorbital puffiness or swelling, are characterised by mild swelling or sagging of the skin under the eyes. This can create a tired or aged appearance. Eye bags can be caused by various factors, including genetics, ageing, fluid retention, lack of sleep, lifestyle habits, and the presence of blood vessels. As we age, the fat pads around the eyes shrink, leading to puffiness or swelling. The weakening of collagen and elastin fibres in our skin also contributes to the loss of elasticity, allowing fats to protrude under the eyes. Additionally, volume loss and thinning skin play a role in the formation of eye bags. Factors such as lack of sleep, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits can further worsen their appearance.

What is Under Eye Filler?

Under-eye fillers, also known as tear trough fillers, are dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid. These non-surgical fillers are injected into the hollowed under-eye areas. They work by restoring volume to the sunken eyes, which reduces the appearance of eye bags. The hyaluronic acid fillers plump the area, diminishing the hollows and reducing the visibility of dark circles. The procedure also improves the skin’s texture by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing the overall appearance of the eye areas. This procedure is minimally invasive and requires little downtime.

How can under-eye (tear trough) fillers improve the appearance of dark eye circles and eye bags?

Under-eye fillers offer a variety of benefits that can significantly improve the appearance of dark eye circles and eye bags. Firstly, the hyaluronic acid used in these fillers is a natural substance found in our bodies, making it safe for most individuals. It also attracts and retains moisture, providing long-lasting hydration to the under-eye area. This can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making the skin look smoother and more youthful. Additionally, the fillers add volume to hollow areas, reducing the visibility of eye bags and dark circles. The procedure is also precise, allowing for targeted treatment that can be tailored to individual needs.

It is important to know that both alcohol consumption and lifestyle choices can contribute to the development of eye bags and dark circles under the eyes. Nasal allergies can also cause the blood vessels in the tear trough area to dilate, resulting in a dark purplish appearance. This phenomenon occurs due to an allergic reaction and can affect the overall aesthetic of the area.

Eye bags can also form due to age and loss of collagen. As we age, the tissues around the eyes weaken, and fat deposits can accumulate under our eyes leading to puffiness. At this point, it becomes difficult for the skin to bounce back as quickly as it used to. Hence, our doctor at Cienna Aesthetics may recommend combining the tear trough filler with skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy, Skinboosters or Thermage.

How do I know if under-eye filler is the best option for me?

The treatment option for your eye bags depends on how they are formed:

  1. If you have sunken eyes or a tear trough with deep fine static lines that appear without movement, then dermal fillers would be the most appropriate solution.
  2. If you’re experiencing sagging skin under your eyes, collagen-stimulating treatments like Thermage, Fotona SmoothEye Laser, or Ultherapy might be better suited for you.

However, it is essential to consult with a qualified and experienced doctor like Dr. Tan from Cienna Aesthetics to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. The doctor will assess your medical history, skin condition, and expectations before recommending an appropriate treatment plan.

What is the Tear Trough?

The tear trough is the area between the lower eyelid and cheekbone. It is susceptible to volume loss, resulting in a hollow or sunken appearance. This can cause dark circles and eye bags to appear more prominent. Tear trough fillers are used to restore volume in this area, improving the overall appearance of the under-eye region.

How is Under Eye (Tear Trough) Filler performed?

During the eye filler treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the area to ensure a comfortable experience. The filler is then skillfully injected into the targeted areas using a blunt tip needle for accuracy, minimising the risk of bruising. Mild redness or swelling may occur after the treatment, but it typically subsides within a few days. The treatment usually takes only 20 to 30 minutes and the results are visible immediately, lasting up to a year. 

Considerations and Side Effects of Under Eye Filler:

The suitability of under-eye fillers depends on factors such as skin type, volume loss, and the severity of eye bags. A qualified and experienced practitioner will assess your unique needs to create a tailored treatment plan.

Side effects are generally minimal, but as with any cosmetic procedure, there may be slight bruising, swelling, or redness that resolves quickly. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment.

In Conclusion

Under-eye fillers can significantly improve the appearance of dark circles and eye bags by restoring volume, improving skin quality, and targeting specific concerns. This minimally invasive treatment offers a safe and effective solution for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of under-eye ageing signs without undergoing surgery.

Remember to maintain healthy lifestyle habits, such as getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and protecting your skin from sun exposure, to help prevent the formation of eye bags and dark circles in the future. Let under-eye fillers be the final touch in enhancing your natural beauty.
