People with dark circles under their eyes often try to find the quickest and least painful way to get rid of them. This discoloration is a common cosmetic concern; people do not want to look tired.
Getting lower eyelid fillers is the most convenient treatment available to eliminate signs of fatigue and restore a youthful facial appearance. There are various types of fillers, but all involve substances that work by adding volume to the lower eyelid and tightening the skin.
Filler Options Offered by Dr. Maurice Khosh
Belotero®, Juvederm® and Restylane® are hyaluronic acid lower eyelid filler brands that are natural-looking, moldable during treatment, easy to administer and reversible because you can have them dissolve if you are unsatisfied with the results. However, they are the shortest-lasting of all lower eyelid fillers.
On the other hand, fat transfer is the longest-lasting but most complicated of the lower eyelid fillers, because it requires an additional procedure to source the fat from somewhere else in your body.
A nano-fat transfer is the best choice to improve dark eye bags. It is a fantastic skin booster and provides ultra-smooth results. However, it may not add enough volume for specific individuals.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic acid that lasts longer than hyaluronic acid and is an excellent collagen booster. Still, sometimes it can take six months to notice results.
Radiesse® is calcium hydroxylapatite, a white substance that is long-lasting but may appear too white and cause nodules.
Many Things Can Cause Dark Circles, Not Only Fatigue
Dark circles are not just caused by fatigue. Some people get dark circles because their skin loses fat and collagen as they age, which makes the area under their eyes look hollow. These people may always have black circles under their eyes, regardless of how much sleep they get. Additional causes of under-eye darkness include allergies, dehydration, heredity and skin pigmentation problems.
Sometimes, blood vessels close to the skin’s surface are to blame for the darkness. In such cases, a filler may not work. That is why you must consult a doctor experienced with persistent dark circles, like Dr. Khosh, who can help you choose an appropriate treatment strategy for your situation.
