An Under-eye light filler is a medical aesthetic procedure to treat the appearance of bags under the eyes, tired eyes, the look of bruising and dark circles occur under the eyes. The non-surgical procedure is a method used in cases caused by genetic and structural conditions, as well as unhealthy and unbalanced nutrition, irregular sleep, smoking, alcohol and substance use, and stress. The eye area is surrounded by what is called the orbital septum. This tissue, which acts as a barrier, loosens and weakens over time as a result of genetics and aging; in time it cannot provide sufficient support to the fat pads. With the protrusion of fatty tissue under the eyes, ‘under-eye bags’ condition start to occur.

Furthermore, in time, the bone structure around the eye also starts to collapse and create a hollow effect. This causes further problems like prominent bruised looking and dark circles under the eyes. Loosening of the muscle and connective tissue (Smass) layer and sagging and deterioration of the skin tissue can also cause an unpleasant appearance in the eye area. With the decrease in the amount of hyaluronic acid produced by the body, especially from the age of 30 plus and the slowing down of the skin’s regeneration process, darkening, collapsing and bruising, can be prevented with an under-eye light filler treatment.

Who Is Suitable For An Under Eye Light Filler Treatment?

The filler can be applied to all men and women aged 18 and over, and  in the following cases;

  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Bags under the eye
  • Hollowness under the eyes
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Visible signs of aging 

Although an Under-eye light filling treatment can be considered at around 30 and above, under eye hollowness and effects of aging can be seen earlier on. If the under-eye bag condition is not too severe, the procedure may be applied. It is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women as clinical studies are not sufficient.

How Is An Under Eye Light Filler Procedure Performed?

An Under-eye light filler is the process of injecting fillers under the eye. Prior to the treatment, a physical examination is performed by a specialist doctor. An Anesthetic cream is then applied to the area to be treated. Once the cream has taken effect, the filler is applied on the bone. The amount of filler to be injected is decided during the procedure. The total duration of the procedure is about 30 minutes. The procedure should be performed slowly and carefully. Anesthetic cream applied before the application helps the person to get through the procedure more comfortably. In some cases, edema may occur, but will subside in a short time. No pain is felt after the procedure. After the procedure, moisture balance is restored around the eyes and the area gains vitality and brightness.

What Is Recovery Like After A Filler Procedure?

An under eye light filler treatment is a fairly short and comfortable procedure where patients can return to their daily life immediately after the procedure. The permanence of the filler does vary from person to person, however it is usually between 12 and 15 months.

The factors that affect the permanence are genetics, the condition and the collapse level of the fat layer under the lower part of the eye, and the amount of filler applied during the procedure. The effects of the procedure, however, can be seen in a short time. 

The longevity of the end results increases as the filling procedure is repeated. There may be a small amount of bruising and edema around the area where the procedure was performed for a few days after the application. Patients may also experience slight redness in the area where the filler is injected, however this is temporary and should only last for about 1-2 weeks.

After an under-eye light filler procedure, patients should not apply any heat or cold contact with the eye area. Extreme physical activity and sports should be avoided after the application.

Advantages Of An Under Eye Light Filler Procedure

As an under-eye light filler is a procedure that does not require surgery, it is a great option for patients who want to avoid surgery. Patients also don’t feel any pain due to the topical anesthetic cream before the procedure as well as the lidacoin substance used in the filler.

The procedure is also quick and allows patients to return to their daily routine right after the treatment is done. With repeated sessions, the results can be long-lasting.

Generally hyaluronic acid fillers are the procedure. Light fillers on the other hand, contain hyaluronic acid, vitamins, minerals and antioxidant substances too. These fillers protect the skin around the eyes against external factors. As a result, a more rejuvenated, younger and natural skin appearance is achieved.
