Tear Trough Treatment By Juvederm Or Belotero HA Filler
The under eye area may have a hollowed look due to genetics, volume loss due to aging, or from environmental and health factors such as excessive sun exposure, or habits such as cigarette smoking that can affect the skin internally and externally. Hollowness can affect the whole under eye area all the way to the upper cheeks, or just the small area directly below the eyes called the tear trough.
Hollow eyes can be effectively treated with a softer hyaluronic acid filler such as Belotero Balance or Juvederm Vobella to add volume. A softer filler is appropriate as lower eyelid skin is the thinnest in the body at 0.5mm of thickness, and can move flexibly with facial expressions – softer hyaluronic acid fillers don’t affect the appearance of the eyes like thicker filler or facial implant. The more malleable filler is also more easily molded and customized to fit an individual’s unique space under the eyes. The whole procedure, and any additional touch-ups can be performed in just a few minutes. Injectable cosmetic fillers like Belotero Balance or Juvederm typically last about 12 months, depending on how individual patients metabolize the material. Hyaluronic acid, the primary material most commonly used in modern cosmetic fillers, occurs naturally in the body, is safely metabolized with time, and is hypoallergenic.
A particular benefit of using a hyaluronic acid filler is that if the need arises, the procedure can be reversed. The hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase for complete reversal and safe absorption by the body.
Fillers for Under Eye Bags
Cosmetic fillers to treat under eye bags is one of the most sought treatments in cosmetic medicine. Its popularity is due to eye bags being one of the most common aesthetic issues since it is most frequently due to genetics, not aging, so many young people are dealing with under eye bags. The most common complaints of young people about eye bags are they make them seem more tired, weary, and older than they actually are. Fillers are most often sought to treat eye bags because it is quite typical to be their first ever cosmetic procedure, and is preferable to undergoing surgery.
Slight cases of eye bags can be treated by blending a comparatively hollow area of the under eye region called the tear trough with the adjacent puffiness under the eyes. A hollow tear trough can make eye bags appear larger. Think of the hollow tear trough as valley, while the eye bags are a mountain next to the valley – by filling the depth of the valley with a filler, the mountain next to it won’t appear so large. However, with larger eye bags, attempting to add filler to camouflage it can make the under eye area look more voluminous, and will likely make the eye bags appear even larger than prior to treatment.
Ultherapy is a FDA-approved non-invasive and non-surgical facelift that uses focused ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin by stimulating collagen production. This process is called neocollagenesis and it triggers the production of fresh, new collagen to naturally lift and improves elasticity of the the skin.
