There is no recovery time with this procedure, you can go about your daily busy as normal. However, you may experience some side effects, including swelling, redness and bruising. These are generally minimal and will subside in 1-2 days.
For the most part, after the procedure, you'll start to notice results right away. “You're going to see results instantly,” Dr. Gonzalez says, “and then they only get better over the next two weeks.”
Common, temporary side effects from an under eye filler procedure include redness and swelling. Less common side effects include pain, bruising, asymmetry, and nodule formation. A rare but serious complication is skin necrosis due to intravascular (blood vessel) injection.
Dr. Maiman says that under-eye fillers are great if you need to fill up lost volume—meaning you have noticeable tear troughs and physical hollows beneath your eyes—but they aren't necessarily an instant fix for all dark circles. “Filler won't help pigmentation.
Since they're transparent, easy to smooth, and less likely to clump, hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common filler type used in the under-eye area. Hyaluronic acid provides the shortest result of all the fillers but is considered by some practitioners to provide the most natural look.
Undereye filler can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
According to Kitsos, undereye filler lasts anywhere from six months to a year, or possibly even longer.
The Results Improve Over Time
Because these injections stimulate your body's production of collagen and elastin, the final results of treatment won't be seen for several weeks. Even as the hyaluronic acid is processed by your body, healthy collagen and elastin grow at a more significant rate.
Although rare, complications from dermal fillers can be devastating. The most serious complications are vascular. Vascular occlusions can lead to necrosis (tissue death), scarring and, even more seriously, blindness. Indeed, dermal fillers have already led to 98 reported cases of blindness (Beleznay et al, 2015).
In certain cases, such as prominent eye bags, malar oedema or festoons, fillers can accentuate the problem and cause the appearance of a swollen under-eye. Extremely rarely, fillers can be injected into a blood vessel which can cause tissue necrosis or even blindness.
The tear trough which is lower on the eyelid skin adjacent to the beginning of the top of the cheek, can be filled below the muscle and gives a more natural appearance. It won't freeze your face when you smile because you should not get such a large volume that it interferes with your smile or lumps up.
No, under eye filler will not alter the shape of your eyes. There are many things you can do to treat under eye hollows and dark circles. A surgical option to remove skin and/or fat will be the best long term.
Fillers can be used for the cheeks and under the eyes to give a lift as well as smooth facial contours.
Fillers are a great option for patients seeking a softer, more youthful look. However, if used improperly or over used, fillers can have negative long term consequences. In fact, patients who do not properly use filler could actually speed up their skin's aging process, resulting in older looking skin.
The data and experience suggests that not only is there NOT a worsening of the look of the face, in fact most people look better than had they never had the filler prior.
Following filler injection, you can keep swelling to a minimum with warm compresses and light massage and by sleeping with your head elevated. Puffiness that is not the result of normal swelling can typically be reversed.
That said, these injectable treatments take some time to integrate into your tissues, and it's normal for your dermal filler to take up to two weeks to fully settle into your face.
Generally, any lumps or bumps that appear after fillers will disappear on their own within one to two weeks. Give the treatment a couple of weeks to improve, applying ice regularly.
The filler can take several weeks to soften and settle into your skin. This means that patients won't see the ultimate results of their treatment immediately. Although individual results will vary, many people achieve the full effect within two weeks after receiving their injections.
Lumps are actually a common side effect after a dermal filler or lip filler treatment. Often they are a short-term problem, but if not, they are correctable by an aesthetic medical professional.
Answer: Under Eye Fillers
The area under the eye is very delicate and needs to be handled with care and precision. Most patients need about 1-2 syringes of dermal filler to achieve the desired result, but this could vary per individual.
Issues in this area are often associated with looking tired. Non-surgically, tear troughs can be treated with dermal fillers injection in the mid-cheek to support the lower eyelid. Patients generally require 0.5ml to 1ml of tear trough filler to get a fresh-faced look.
You may not be an ideal candidate for tear trough filler if you have: Very thin skin. Dark circles caused by lifestyle habits or genetics. Medical conditions that add a risk of complications.
Although extremely rare, dermal fillers are able to migrate within the skin if consistent and adequate pressure is applied to them. For this reason, we advise patients not to get a facial, massage (on the treated skin), or microdermabrasion for the first two weeks following their filler injections.
