What Is a Non-Surgical Under Eye Lift with Filler?
Dermal fillers are safe, effective, and versatile. In addition to filling in areas of volume loss, smoothing out wrinkles, and contouring the face, fillers can now be used to rejuvenate the eye area as well.
It’s only natural that the area under your eyes may begin to sag with age. Depending on your genetics and the level of stress placed on your skin over the years, some rejuvenation may be needed.
Sagging under the eyes is partially due to the thinning of the skin and collagen loss that comes with age. On top of this thinning, your skin starts to lose the oil and sweat glands that ensure hydration. Skin that isn’t adequately hydrated tends to break down and lose its elasticity.
Dark circles can be a product of fat loss in the area under the eye. The supporting structure below the skin deteriorates and the darkening of the area can cause a sickly appearance. You may not be ill but dark circles will make you look exhausted and unwell.
A non-surgical under eye lift addresses the wrinkles, dark circles, and fine lines that affect the area. A specialist injects a safe, biocompatible dermal filler under the skin, typically made from hyaluronic acid. The filler reduces bags and promotes a youthful appearance that previously was only possible through surgery.
About the Procedure
Your specific treatment will vary slightly, depending on the goals you and your doctor have discussed, but the process itself is straightforward. The specialist will administer a topical anesthetic to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. The filler is then injected into the area, taking care to create a natural, refreshed appearance.
Benefits of a Non-Surgical Under Eye Lift with Filler
Avoiding surgery is a major benefit for people with busy lives or for those who have a fear of invasive procedures. Despite plastic surgery being a safe way to improve one’s appearance when performed by an expert surgeon, it’s comforting to know that there is a great non-surgical option as well.
If you elect to have a non-surgical under eye lift with filler treatment, you’ll also gain the benefit of minimal downtime.
Good Candidates for a Non-Surgical Under Eye Lift
Good candidates for a non-surgical eye lift with filler are those who have experienced volume loss below the eyes. Some people may have puffiness under their eyes and might be better off getting a surgical blepharoplasty. A qualified plastic surgeon will assess your candidacy during a consultation and provide a recommendation based on your goals.
Safety of a Non-Surgical Under Eye Lift With Filler
Dermal filler procedures are performed in the millions worldwide. The safety record of dermal filler use in aesthetic procedures is impeccable. There are a few pre-existing medical conditions that may prevent a prospective patient from undergoing the treatment. If you don’t fall under any of these, fillers are generally safe and pose only minimal side effects and downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions About Non-Surgical Under Eye Lifts With Filler
Your doctor will apply a topical anesthetic which may take a few minutes to take effect. Once the numbing effect takes hold, only a few minutes will be necessary for the injections. Depending on the exact nature of the treatment, you may find that it takes under 30 minutes from start to finish.
Dermal fillers can last up to a year. Depending on the rate at which your body absorbs the filler and how well you take care of your skin, results will vary within that range.
Long-lasting results will depend on you taking care of your skin. Limiting your sun exposure will play a big part in extending your results. If you enjoy sunbathing, make sure to wear protective eyewear and use appropriate sunscreen. You’ll need to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays.
Additionally, you’ll want to use high-quality skincare products to make sure your skin remains moisturized. A lack of hydration contributes to the problem of dark circles and bags. If you hydrate properly, you might add weeks or months to the duration of your non-surgical under eye lift.
Having a non-surgical under eye lift means not having to wait endlessly for your return to your everyday life. However, your doctor may recommend that you take two to three days off before returning to work. This is mainly due to minor swelling or bruising that may occur.
For those anxious not to lose time from their job, scheduling a treatment on a Friday may allow them to return to work on Monday. Three-day holiday weekends may be perfect for those that want to recover fully before heading back to work. In general, though, you will find that you won’t be missing a step.
Since the doctor will be applying a topical anesthetic, there shouldn’t be any pain during the treatment itself. Some discomfort may occur afterward, as you will be receiving injections. However, any discomfort will be minor and very temporary.
