What Causes Under Eye Bags and How Fillers Can Help

You’re at an impasse. Your medicine cabinet is flooded with empty eye cream containers and every concealer on the market. But your dark undereye circles remain. You drink liters of water every day and sleep your required eight hours—but they’re still there. What you don’t realize is this issue may be more about your skin structure than how much coffee you drink.

Fortunately, there is a treatment to rid yourself of these facial flaws. Plastic surgeons are now turning to minimally invasive fillers to resolve under-eye bags.

Why Dermal Fillers?

The most common cause for under eye circles is volume loss at the tear trough. Administering a precise dosage of filler will lift the delicate eyelid skin from the blood vessels under your eyes. This process may cause temporary redness for a day or two, but your eyes will appear dramatically brighter soon. Many of our patients understand that excess makeup will, at some point, fail to hide those dark circles under the eyes. They find dermal fillers allow them to attend their spin classes or go to the gym without makeup or foundations.

How Temporary Are Fillers?

At Restora Austin, our highly skilled nurse injectors work under the supervision of board-certified plastic surgeons to deliver excellent results that last six months to over a year. Our selection of fillers is excellent for this type of treatment, providing several months of youthful, alert eyes.

Are There Risks?

With dermal fillers trending for aesthetic results, there are many injectors offering treatment with little training or experience. It’s a no brainer that injections around the eyes require extensive training and expertise. At Restora Austin, all of our nurse injectors have remarkable medical backgrounds and are health care professionals. This level of care ensures you of the safest treatments with the best results.

As with all injections, there may be some superficial swelling or bruising. These effects will resolve within a day or two. It’s imperative to seek medical professionals that have the proper expertise to deliver a precise dosage in the exact location necessary for optimal results.

Other Options Available

When under eye shadows are not the result of hollows under your eyes, dermal fillers may not be the right treatment. Dark circles may be caused by dehydration, lack of sleep, excess pigmentation, or blood vessels. Laser treatment or medical-grade topical creams may be the best solution or surgical blepharoplasty. It’s best to consult with a medical specialist to make sure which procedure will work best for you.
