“I don’t want to look tired,” is the number one complaint that most patients express in consultation. The filling of the lower periocular area or filling of dark circles is one of the best treatments to solve this tired aspect. Dr. Sergiu Vieru explains how to use the procedure to illuminate and erase the signs of fatigue and reveals who can expect the best results.
Who is a good candidate for dark circles?
The pronounced groove and dark coloration under the eyes may appear for several reasons. The first thing is to determine if dark circles are caused by pigments or vascular problems, it is both cases the filling will not magically erase them. In contrast, the filling of dark circles with hyaluronic acid is a great option for people who lack volume under the eyes. With age, as the fat compartments on the face disappear, the area under the eyes separates from the cheek, giving a hollow appearance. This also occurs in some young people due to the genetics and the natural shape of the face. Fillers can be used to create a smooth transition between the area under the eyes and the upper cheek.
What dark circles fill product is the most suitable?
Because the hyaluronic acid fillers are soft and mixed with the surrounding skin they create the most natural effect under the eyes. Other forms of padding have a higher risk of agglomerating after repeated flickering or of being visible across the surface. In conclusion, hyaluronic acid is the best product for this area, in Derma Clinic Spain Dr. Sergiu Vieru works with Restylane Skinbooster of Galderma, one of the highest quality and recognized laboratories in the field of aesthetic medicine and dermatology.
Will the application hurt and / or bruises appear?
More than pain some patients have apprehension to have a needle placed so close to the eye, the procedure is relatively quick and painless. For the most sensitive people, anesthetic cream may be applied to the area 30 minutes before the procedure to minimize discomfort.
After application it is likely that there will be subsequent swelling and bruising since this area is particularly prone to bruising, something that makes sense when one thinks how common black eyes are after an accident. The swelling usually subsides a few days after treatment. It is important to avoid anticoagulants, including fish oil and aspirin supplements, for at least one week before treatment.
How long do the results of the hyaluronic acid filler last?
The filling of dark circles with hyaluronic acid usually lasts up to a year although this when you begin to appreciate the loss of volume you can make some tweaks. Too much padding may seem unattractive and natural so it is essential to find the right balance.
