A hollowness and saggy are common results of the face’s natural aging process. This can cause an impression of constant tiredness. The fat pouch under the eye moves, leaving a sunken in appearance. However, in some cases, genetic bone structure may leave under the eye hollowness as well. Dermal fillers may be used in order to smooth and fill in the area, decreasing the appearance of dark under eye circles.
Restylane is a natural cosmetic filler Dr. Rokhsar uses to smooth wrinkles and folds. This is a natural approach to restoring fullness to the areas around the eye. The filler requires virtually no downtime because it is made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid which is a natural sugar in the body that holds in moisture while plumping up the treated area. Restylane can last up to twice as long as collagen injections, which is about six to nine months.
Juvéderm is another hyaluronic acid based filler, ensuring it is a natural approach to enhancing appearance in sensitive areas such as the eyes. Almost 90 percent of all study volunteers who were treated with both Juvéderm injectable gel and competitor dermal filler preferred Juvéderm. The results will last up to a year and results can be appreciated immediately after injection. The treatment only lasts a few minutes, making the whole sessions a lunch-break procedure.
Both fillers are very effective in restoring fullness to the face in order to create a healthier appearance and restore confidence in the eye area. Botox® can also be used in conjunction with fillers in order to create smoother, longer lasting and more dramatic results and has proven most effective in achieving optimal results when used with Restylane.
