The tear trough area is an increasingly popular location for dermal fillers because it can improve the appearance of dark circles and bags. However, many popular fillers like Sculptra and Radiesse are not suitable for under eyes. So, which fillers work best for filling in the tear troughs?
Restylane products like Restylane-L can provide fullness and brightness to the under eye area. These fillers are malleable and work well in the tear troughs. Depending on the Restylane product you choose, you can expect to enjoy your results for between 6 and 18 months. Restylane-L remains one of the most popular under eye fillers.
Juvederm’s family of fillers offer a range of fillers that can work to fill in dark circles. These gel fillers offer great results that can leave you looking less tired. Like with Restylane products, you can expect to need to refresh your results in about 6-24 months, depending on your choice of filler.
Restylane and Juvederm belong to a larger class of fillers known as hyaluronic acid fillers. They are temporary dermal fillers which will eventually absorb back into the body. However, because hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the skin, these fillers are safe and make a wonderful tool for filling in facial hollows.
