Cosmetic Filler for Dark Circles

Did you know that dark under-eye circles can effectively be treated with cosmetic fillers?

Studio Esthetique has been successfully and safely helping patients to reduce and eliminate their dark circles and under-eye bags for over 18 years. Using some of the industry’s leading dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, Radiesse and Sculptra, our expert clinicians have achieved spectacular results that take years off of your face.

If you have noticed under eye wrinkles, eye bags, puffiness, skin discoloration or skin darkening under your eyes (i.e., in the tear trough area), you may feel that they make you look older. Young and old alike can suffer from dark circles. Young people mostly have these features due to the anatomy of their eyes and face. With older patients, dark circles are caused due to skin aging and loss of facial volume. The good news is that these unsightly flaws can effectively be treated with a quick and safe in-office treatment using cosmetic dermal filler. The filler is gently injected in the tear trough areas, instantaneously correcting the depression, re-volumizing the skin and making you look 10 years younger immediately.

This safe and effective dark circle treatment can be performed on your lunch break with dramatic results that last for a few months to a few years.

What Causes Dark Circles and Under-Eye Wrinkles?

The skin around the eyes is among the thinnest found on the human body, and this thin tissue covers bone, fat pads, blood vessels and muscle. Some people are born with deep set eyes, which makes dark circles rather prominent from an early age. Others are genetically predisposed to under-eye circles because their skin is thin, because there is more pigment beneath their eyes or because the veins under the skin are too visible making the area look darker. Then, there is aging, which is associated with loss of bone, fat and muscle, making the face and the eyes in particular look tired and saggy. Weight loss , skin allergies, dehydration, skin irritation, injury and some medical conditions are a few other factors that cause dark circles and under-eye bags.

Here are few other factors that can cause dark circles:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Eczema
  • Stress
  • Allergies
  • UV exposure
  • Iron deficiency
  • Minor trauma1
  • Alcohol use
  • Dehydration
  • Aging
The Revolutionary Science behind Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

Leading injectable like Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero have been safely used to reverse age and physiology-related volume loss for decades. The most common treatment areas are smile lines, cheeks and lips. Correction of under-eye hollowness and dark circles requires expert knowledge and extensive experience that Studio Esthetique clinicians have refined over decades of performing such procedures. They have innovated the tear trough correction technique, performed thousands of treatments and pass on their expertise to other clinicians in our unique best practices workshops. 

What are Cosmetic Fillers?

The most popular cosmetic fillers used to correct under-eye dark circles are Restylane, Restylane Silk, Juvederm and Belotero. All of them are made from hyaluronic acid which is actually a sugar naturally found in your skin that plays a critical role in keeping your skin plump and hydrated. Research has shown that hyaluronic acid can soak up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an ideal component for under eye fillers.2

In addition to water retention and volumizing, hyaluronic acid also stimulates the production of collagen, a protein essential for skin firmness and elasticity. Studies show that men and women who have filler injections have fewer lines and wrinkles, making them look and feel younger.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

Leading dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Belotero, Radiesse, Revance and Sculptra are all FDA-approved and have been exhaustively tested across the widest array of clinical situations. More importantly, millions of people receive these quick, no-downtime treatments every year and love the results.

What Happens during a Treatment?

We always start with a Free Consultation. This is an opportunity for you to express your concerns and for Studio Esthetique expert clinicians to evaluate your skin and develop a customized treatment plan that will best correct your dark circles. Then you and your clinician decide which fillers will work best for you. In most cases, the treatment takes only 15-20 minutes and can be performed immediately after the consultation. Most of the tear trough or under-eye filler injections at Studio Esthetique and by other expert injectors are performed using a blunt cannula which is a special device that significantly reduces the patient’s chances of bruising and swelling while enhancing safety and efficacy. Using an ultra-fine cannula your clinician deposits small amount of filler into the tissue in the de-volumized and surrounding area. The filler instantaneously lifts and volumizes the skin. Most patients describe the procedure as painless or only mildly uncomfortable.

Immediate Results that Can Last Months

Cosmetic filler treatments are so popular because they offer immediate results. You can walk in and walk out in 30 minutes looking 10 years younger and continue with your normal daily activities. Some patients may have minor swelling or bruising that should subside in a couple of days. The results can last from 6 months up to a year, at which point, you can repeat the procedure with similar or even better results.

How Much Does It Cost?

Dermal filler treatments for under eye dark circles are exceedingly affordable. Restylane, which is considered the industry’s gold standard, starts at $600 per syringe.
