Filler Injection (Eyelid And Face) — Dark Circles, Sunken Eyes
EYELID FILLER INJECTION (“Non-Surgical 3D EYELIFT”)
Facial Filler Injection (“Liquid Facelift”)One of the main factors that contributes to aging of the eyes and face is loss of volume (fat) from the face and around the eyes. The eye area becomes affected early and prominently during this aging process, creating hollow sunken eyes, hollow upper eyelids with “loose upper eyelid skin,” and hollow under eye area with under eye “bags” or “dark circles” or “tear trough deformity.” Fat loss from around the eye area (temples, brows, cheeks) further exacerbates the problem, contributing to the fall of the eyebrows and cheeks.
Think of this analogy: Imagine a balloon full of air (similar to a young person with a full face). When you let the air out of the balloon, the balloon sags with wrinkles and folds. The same thing happens with the face and the eyes. As one ages, the loss of fat contributes to a saggy fallen face with wrinkles, skin folds, hollow sunken eyes, eye bags, droopy brows, etc, thus creating a more skeletonized, tired, older eye and facial appearance.
It is true that the skin quality also changes for the worse but true excess stretched skin is not a large factor in eye and facial aging until perhaps after menopause or age 50 in males. This all means cutting/removing skin (surgery) is not the best solution to the problems stated above, especially before age 50 years old and even after that age as the sole treatment. Rather, restoring volume to the eyes and face will create a NATURAL, YOUTHFUL appearance to the eyes and face.
Eyelid filler injection is done in the office setting with the patient in a sitting position, with or without numbing cream. It takes 10-15 minutes to fill hollow upper eyelids, which also stretches and “removes” “loose” upper eyelid skin along with 3D brow lifting, in natural youthful manner (aka “nonsurgical 3D upper eyelid lift”). The same holds true for filler injection in hollow under eye area, thereby eliminating or improving “dark circles” and “tear trough deformity” and “eyelid bags.”
(Please note that if there is true excess lower eyelid bags (fat prolapse), then the best treatment might be lower blepharoplasty with fat removal/repositioning.) The effect of first time eyelid filler (hyaluronic acid gel types) injection lasts about 2 years, while subsequent injections can last even longer. Recovery after the procedure is painless, but there is some swelling/bruising that lasts 1 week on average. Patients in Beverly Hills are free to continue on with their day with little to no discomfort and return to their normal life activities.
