Which Undereye Filler Is Best for Eye Rejuvenation?

Woman Looking at Face New York NY

If you look tired all the time due to dark circles, hollows or bags under your eyes, fillers can give you a rejuvenated appearance. Adding volume under the skin can hide dark shadows and smooth the transition between the undereye area and the upper cheek for a youthful appearance. There are many different options for undereye filler – which is the best option for your eye rejuvenation?

Types of Undereye Fillers

There are different options in filler material to add volume under the skin. There are synthetic substances like hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite, as well as biological fat transfers. Each has its benefits for replacing lost fat and tissue within the lower eyelid area, but each also has some drawbacks.

  • Hyaluronic acid. Facial filler brands like Juvederm® and Restylane® use hyaluronic acid to add volume with quick injections. The results look natural and can be reversed if needed. The drawback is that results usually last less than a year.
  • Poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra® is a filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid to add volume and stimulate collagen production. The results can last two years, but take longer to appear, and nodules can form.
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite. Radiesse® uses calcium hydroxylapatite, which can provide volume for up to 18 months. The downside is it can have a white appearance and may create nodules.
  • Fat transfer. There are a few different fat transfer options that offer the longest lasting results. Autologous fat transfer requires a separate procedure to harvest the fat, while nano fat transfers may not provide enough volume.

All undereye fillers can provide a more youthful appearance, hiding dark circles, bags and hollows. Dermal filler injections are the quickest and least invasive options, but the results last less time than a fat transfer procedure. Many patients try a facial filler injection first to see the difference added volume makes before opting for a fat transfer or other cosmetic procedures like blepharoplasty.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
