Eye fillers: A Non-Surgical Alternative To Eye Rejuvenation
As we age, we begin to lose volume on our faces. Volume loss occurs as a natural process of aging due to the appearance of the fat present in our faces. We experience loss both superficially and at a deeper level as we age.
When we age, our bodies no longer produce collagen as quickly as compared to when we were young. Our skin loses the collagen and elastin, the supportive connective tissue in the skin, responsible for making us look youthful will no longer be as strong. In addition, facial muscles will weaken with age and cause our skin to sag further down.
Aging Starts From The Eyes
Many women notice the first signs of aging in their late 20s, when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear around the eyes.
When collagen and elastin levels start to decrease in our late 20s, it first becomes apparent around the eyes because the skin around the eyes are very delicate and thin. Our skin around the eyes doesn’t produce oil like the rest of your skin. This leads to dehydration and results in formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
We mistreat our eyes more than we like to admit. Other than hereditary factors, several social factors and lifestyle patterns can make your age faster than normal. Smoking, consuming high amount of salt and alcohol are contributing factors to early onset of aging. Leaving residual makeup on our faces and using facial cleanser with harsh chemicals are also bad for your skin.
When we constantly touch and rub our eyes and have repetitive facial motions such as laughing and squinting, your muscles get activated more often and your skin gets worn out.
Our eyes are also the most frequently exposed area of our body. Environmental reasons, such as extreme weather conditions and pollutions can expedite the aging process. Because of the very thin and delicate skin around the eyes, you may also get dark eye circles, puffiness, discolouration or even volume loss around the eyes.
Eye Fillers: Non-Invasive Option for Eye Rejuvenation
Our skin contains hyaluronic acid. The amount of hyaluronic acid decreases as we age, leading to formation of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes.
Juvederm and Restylane are common brands of hyaluronic acid fillers that doctors use to reverse signs of aging. These fillers are made of hyaluronic acid gel that mimics the body’s own hyaluronic acid. Both Juvederm and Restylane are FDA-approved for restoring volume to the face. Fillers smoothen out the skin and add volume to deficient areas reduce the signs of aging.
What Problems Can Eye Fillers Treat?
The versatility of the hyaluronic acid fillers is wondrous. Combining a specific choice of filler of suitable hardness and the doctor’s injection skill and techniques, you can be assured of a pair of beautiful, yet natural-looking eyes.
DARK EYE CIRCLES are caused by hollow spaces under your eyes due to the loss of volume as we age. For many of us, the dark eye circles can be further accentuated by the appearance of the blood vessels and muscles under the eyes because of the delicate skin. Dark eye circles can also be caused by droopy cheeks which may lead to a week support structure for the undereyes.
Using eye fillers, the doctor injects hyaluronic acid of varying viscosity to plump up the skin and restore loss volume in the undereye area. Using a blunt tip needle, the hollows under the eyes are filled for a smooth, natural result. It also reduces the chances of possible bruising. Appearance of dark eye circles will be reduced by hydrating the area and stretching the skin to remove fine lines.
EYE BAGS are mild swelling or puffiness under the eyes. Eye bags become more visible as we age. The tissue around the eyes, including the muscles that support your eyelids, weaken over time. Fluid may also accumulate under the eyes, adding to the swelling. Although eye bags are rarely a sign of a serious medical condition, they can be persistent or bothersome.
Using a blunt needle tip, the doctor carefully introduces a soft eye filler just above the orbital bone. Using multiple puncture technique by precisely introducing the fillers into specific areas, the doctor builds up the filler around the eye bags to reduce its appearance. This 10-minute procedure is almost painless and you can see the result almost immediately.
How Long Can The Results Last?
The results will usually last anywhere between 12 to 18 months. It may last longer in some cases. With repeated treatment, the results can be even longer-lasting.
Is Eye Filler Safe?
Since Restylane launched in 1996, it is estimated that over 9 million treatments have been administered in over 70 countries.
Restylane and Juvederm are biocompatible and biodegradable. Hyaluronic acid, the main compound in the fillers, are also naturally-occurring in our bodies. The advantage of these hyaluronic acid fillers is that they are non-permanent.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Side effects from the treatment are limited to injection-related problems such as mild redness, possible bruising, and swelling. Any side effect you get should resolve on its own in a matter of a few hours or up to 2 days.
What Are The Advantages of Undergoing Eye Filler Treatment Over Surgery?
There are several risks associated with surgery such as:
- Adverse reaction to anaesthesia
- Long downtime
- Excessive bleeding
Opting eye filler treatment with an experienced doctor allows you to get a natural result immediately. Eye fillers procedure is administered precisely with a blunt needle tip, to deficient areas to plump and reduce wrinkles and fine lines immediately – with minimal downtime.
