The main reason to get under-eye filler is to fill hollowness under the eye called the “tear trough”. This in turn can help correct hollowness and dark under eye circles. Tear trough deformity is a major concern for some individuals as it can give them a fatigued and aged look. It’s the result of heredity and the natural ageing process where you have a breakdown of fat pads, collagen and elastin as well as bone loss.
It’s important to determine if the dark circles are due to volume loss due to ageing or genetics or hyperpigmentation, prior to injecting filler. Dermal filler doesn’t help if it’s hyperpigmentation.
Contraindications to Under-eye Dermal filler treatment:
- large under eye bags
