Eye Area Facial Contouring with Derma Fillers
Fine lines, loss of skin volume, and hollows below the eyes can make a person appear tired or older than their actual age. Many people are keen to find aesthetic solutions to restore a more youthful appearance of the area around the eyes, but not everyone may be ready to undergo cosmetic surgery. In such cases, the surgeon may recommend injectable dermal filler treatment to rejuvenate the eye area.
Eyes are the most delicate part of the face, which makes it pertinent that eye area facial contouring must ideally be performed by a qualified and trained oculoplastic surgeon. These specialists have a detailed understanding of the eye anatomy and extensive training to produce safe and optimal results in any eye related aesthetic procedure.

Benefits of Filler Treatment
Dermal filler treatment for the eye area is much simpler as compared to an eyelid surgery procedure. All the typical risks that are usually associated with a surgery will be avoided with this injectable treatment. The duration of the treatment is shorter, and cosmetic filler injections will involve minimal pain and discomfort as compared to surgery. The treatment is more suited for busy moms and working people who want eye rejuvenation solutions that do not entail much downtime.
Restylane and Juvederm Facial Fillers
Restylane and Juvederm are two of the most popular and highly compatible cosmetic fillers that may be used for treatment under the eyes. Both fillers are FDA approved for certain areas, but specifically for the eye area, no injectable filler has received FDA approval. However, an experienced eye surgeon may perform the filler treatment with completely safe and successful results as an off label procedure.
Restylane is the only aesthetic soft tissue filler that has been approved by the FDA for lip enhancement. Lips are a very delicate area, and Restylane is the most suitable choice. For the same reasons, Restylane is also preferred by eye surgeons for facial contouring in the eye area. When the Restylane injectable treatment is carried out properly, the results will generally last longer as compared to other areas of the face.
Both Restylane and Juvederm are hyaluronic acid based fillers, which is a bio-degradable product that closely resembles the natural skin tissue. Controlled delivery of the hyaluronic gel at the correct depths and within the anatomical safety boundaries will lead to safe and highly desirable results. HA gels do not require prior allergy tests in most cases, and can be dissolved quite easily if the patient is unhappy with the final outcome.
