Wake Up Your Eyes

Undereye Filler at RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in New York

Do you struggle with tired-looking eyes that make you look older than you feel? Many people experience hollowness, dark circles, and puffiness under their eyes as they age. The good news is that Undereye Filler treatments at RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn, New York City, can help. Dr. Renata Khelemsky, a double board-certified facial cosmetic surgeon, can restore volume loss and smooth wrinkles in the undereye area, creating a refreshed and more youthful appearance.

Beyond Concealer

What is Undereye Filler?

Undereye Filler is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses hyaluronic acid (HA) to restore volume loss and smooth wrinkles in the undereye area. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that attracts hydration, plumping the skin and creating a more youthful look.

What type of Undereye Filler is available at RENATA?

You've Got Options

At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a variety of Undereye Filler options, all of which are hyaluronic acid (HA)-based. This ensures compatibility with the delicate undereye area and minimizes the risk of hyper-sensitivity issues. NYC Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Khelemsky, will recommend the most suitable product based on your individual anatomy and desired outcome, prioritizing safety and natural-looking results. We do not recommend the use of biostimulatory fillers for the undereye region due to their potential to cause delayed hypersensitivity, nodules, or undesired visibility issues in this delicate area.

Juvéderm

While several fillers in the Juvederm collection have been used for undereye treatments, Juvederm Volbella™ stands out. Recently FDA-approved specifically for correcting undereye hollowing, Volbella offers a smooth, cohesive gel consistency ideal for precise injection into delicate undereye tissues. With a lower HA concentration compared to other Juvederm products, Volbella minimizes swelling and provides subtle yet noticeable improvements in volume and texture, enhancing the overall appearance of the undereye region.

Restylane

Restylane offers a variety of hyaluronic acid-based filler products known for their efficacy in clinical settings, particularly in addressing mild to moderate undereye concerns with subtle volume restoration and wrinkle smoothing. Restylane Eyelight™ has recently received FDA approval specifically for the treatment of undereye hollowing. Leveraging the properties of hyaluronic acid, Restylane products demonstrate exceptional versatility and a proven safety record, making them popular choices not only for undereye concerns but also for enhancing the cheek and midface regions.

Undereye Filler Benefits

Undereye Fillers offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Reduced hollowness and undereye circles
  • Smoother, more youthful undereye appearance
  • Improved dark undereye circles
  • Enhanced cheekbone definition
  • Non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime

From Sleepy to Stunning

Undereye Filler Candidates

Ideal candidates for Undereye Filler are individuals who are bothered by the following:

Hollow Undereye Areas

As we age, we naturally lose volume in our faces, including the undereye area. This volume loss can create a sunken appearance that makes us look tired. Undereye Fillers can effectively restore volume, filling out hollowness and creating a smoother, more youthful undereye contour.

Dark Circles Caused by Volume Loss

Dark circles under the eyes can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, a dense network of veins, as well as UV-light induced hyperpigmentation. However, in some cases, dark circles are simply due to the shadow cast by hollowness in the undereye area. Undereye Filler treatment can help address this type of darkness by plumping up the undereye tissue and reducing the shadow effect. Dr. Khelemsky can assess your individual situation and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles Around the Eyes

Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes result from natural aging, leading to collagen and elastin loss and the repetitive contraction of facial muscles. Neuromodulators like Botox or Xeomin address dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing these muscles. Combining neuromodulators with Undereye Filler treatment provides a comprehensive solution, softening dynamic lines and restoring volume for a refreshed appearance.

Puffiness or Bags Under the Eyes

Puffiness or bags under the eyes can result from aging, excess skin, fluid retention, allergies, or genetics. While Undereye Fillers can improve mild puffiness by adding volume and structure, they may not be suitable for excess skin or hypersensitive bags. Dr. Renata may recommend a combination of treatments, like Undereye Fillers and laser skin resurfacing, for optimal results. Surgery is often the preferred option for moderate to severe cases of lower eyelid puffiness, providing predictable, safe, and natural-looking outcomes.

Consultation and Preparation

Dr. Renata listens to your concerns and goals for Undereye Filler treatment during your consultation.

Microcannula Technique

Filler Treatment & Recovery

Undereye Filler results are immediately noticeable. Dr. Renata recommends starting with one syringe of an HA-based dermal filler, evenly split across both sides. Using a small, non-sharp microcannula, filler is placed along the tear trough and nearby hollow areas, with caution to avoid overfilling. The advantages of a microcannula include reduced risk of bleeding, bruising, vascular complications, and discomfort during treatment.

After receiving a treatment of Undereye Filler New York Patients (and those visiting from out of town) can expect mild to moderate swelling and possible bruising, typically resolving within a few days. Predicting post-filler swelling is challenging. Given that swelling can appear to enhance the total correction, a gradual and precise approach is recommended.

Aftercare includes avoiding strenuous activity, gentle massaging, and using sun protection. Occasional temporary swelling due to factors like water retention or salt intake is normal. Patience and follow-up visits are key for optimal results.

Results & Maintenance

Undereye Filler results typically endure for 12 to 18 months or longer, varying based on the specific product used and individual body chemistry. Touch-up treatments every 6 to 12 months help sustain desired results. As filler accommodates to your facial movements, its appearance beneath the delicate undereye skin may occasionally fluctuate. HA-based fillers generally provide flexibility and can be readily adjusted or, in rare instances, reversed with in-office medication injections to ensure a natural and satisfying outcome.

Undereye Filler

Frequently Asked Questions

Undereye Filler results typically last 12 to 24 months and sometimes longer, however several factors can influence this time frame. Different types of filler have varying degrees of hyaluronic acid concentration and particle size, which can affect how long they hold their shape. Also, individual factors like enzyme activity can influence how quickly your body breaks down the filler. Research shows that filler metabolism is not a linear process, making it unpredictable to determine the exact duration of filler results.

Undereye Fillers are generally well-tolerated, but some temporary side effects can occur, including swelling, bruising due to the use of needles, and injection site tenderness for several days after treatment. Over-the-counter pain relievers and occasionally medical-grade creams can be used to alleviate discomfort and bruising. To minimize these side effects, Dr. Khelemsky uses a gentle touch and a microcannula technique to help reduce trauma, bruising, and discomfort during treatment.

Undereye Fillers do not address all causes of undereye dark circles. They are most effective for addressing dark circles caused by volume loss. This type of darkness appears as a shadow cast by hollowness in the undereye area. Fillers can effectively restore volume, reducing the shadow and brightening the undereye zone.

It is important to recognize that "dark circles" often result from hyperpigmentation (increased melanin production) and/or the visibility of vessels due to the thin skin in this area. Fillers are ineffective for addressing these causes of dark circles, and alternative treatments like skin-lightening creams or laser skin resurfacing may be suggested instead.

There are several alternatives to Undereye Fillers for improving the appearance of the undereye area. Dr. Renata's signature approach to the undereye region focuses on addressing various aging elements across the eyelid layers to ensure optimal outcomes. Laser skin resurfacing is one option, targeting issues like sun damage, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. This treatment can rejuvenate the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of aging and fatigue.

Another alternative is eyelid lift surgery, also known as lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This procedure addresses excess skin, undereye bags, fat bulges, and drooping eyelid structures, providing comprehensive and natural-looking results tailored to each patient's specific needs. Combining eyelid lift surgery with laser skin resurfacing is common practice because surgery primarily addresses skin quantity rather than skin quality.

During your Undereye Filler consultation, you'll have the opportunity to openly discuss your concerns and objectives in a relaxed and informative environment. Dr. Renata will attentively listen to your needs before conducting a comprehensive examination of your facial anatomy, focusing on aspects like skin quality, eyelid skin quantity, and the tear trough area. Based on this assessment, Dr. Renata will provide personalized recommendations tailored to address your specific concerns, ensuring the most suitable treatment plan. If Undereye Filler treatment is deemed appropriate for you, you will receive detailed information about the suitable filler type, potential risks, and side effects, with ample opportunity to address any questions or concerns. If Undereye Filler is not a suitable choice based on your examination, Dr. Renata will discuss alternative treatments, providing clear explanations for each option to ensure you're fully informed about your alternatives.
