Dermal fillers for the eye area

Every day of our lives, we express ourselves in so many ways – and over time, these expressions leave a lasting impression on our face. One area affected is our eyes. Dermal fillers can help keep your eye area looking bright and refreshed, without appearing ‘over-done’.

OUR EYE AREA VISIBLY CHANGES OVER TIME

53 %

of women worry about how ageing affects their eyes, so you’re not alone.

Both our environment and the natural ageing process take a toll on our skin. Some factors, such as smoking and sun exposure, can be managed, but others, like how our skin and underlying anatomy physically change, are out of our control.

Loss of volume in the eye area, as well as reduced moisture levels and elasticity in the skin, contribute to wrinkles and lines as we age. Because the skin around our eyes is thinnest, it’s these lines and wrinkles we tend to notice first. Crow’s feet (the lines that fork off from the outside corners of our eyes), forehead lines (the horizontal lines caused by raising our eyebrows) and frown lines (the vertical ‘glabellar’ lines between the eyebrows) appear because of repeated small muscle contractions over time.

WHERE DID THE VOLUME GO?

Over time, the fat that keeps our skin supple and firm in areas such as the forehead, temples and eye sockets is reduced, which compromises the firmness and elasticity in these areas. The facial skeleton also changes, with the eye sockets where our eyes are situated increasing in area, which can give the appearance of sunken eyes.

As skin fullness is lost, eyebrows may also start to droop and thinning skin under the eyes can cause both dark circles and bags to appear. Of course, topical creams may temporarily restore moisture, and cleverly applied make-up can disguise dark circles, but if you’re looking for a solution that won’t wash off, dermal fillers could be for you.

DERMAL FILLERS FOR EYE area

Placing dermal fillers under the skin helps restore volume and significantly reduces the visibility of dark circles and bags. They can also minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the forehead. Likewise, adding subtle volume above the eyes helps provide a more wide-awake look. And adding a little more volume to hollow temples can reduce or remove their shadowy effect.

If you want to target crow’s feet, your doctor can also apply filler directly into these lines and wrinkles to smooth them out. All these techniques work together to brighten and rejuvenate the eye area. Your doctor may also recommend anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles in these areas.
