Your eyes don’t lie. No matter what you’re feeling it appears clearly on your face, whether you’re fatigued, stressed, or even dehydrated. Many people deal with dark under-eye circles and feel as though they are stuck with them, however, that is not the case.
Countless celebrities undergo various treatments to balance out the dark circles under their eyes and give their skin a refreshing and youthful glow. One of the most common of these procedures is under-eye filler. This procedure is tempting as it provides quick and great results almost instantly. If you are just hearing about under-eye filler or are curious about the procedure, this guide will help you make an informed decision about if under-eye filler is right for you.
What Is Under-Eye Filler?
Under-eye filler is a non-surgical treatment where hyaluronic acid is injected just below the eyes to fill out the area and ease discoloration. Hyaluronic acid is used to stimulate excess collagen production and make the eyes fuller and more youthful. Some brands of under-eye filler that you may have heard of include Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero.
This procedure should only be done by a licensed professional. Attempting to do this procedure without one can result in serious damage and health issues like, uneven skin, permanent scarring, and possibly blindness.

How Do Dark Under-Eyes Occur?
There are many factors that may contribute to dark under-eyes. Most often, this is a genetic trait passed down from one or both of your parents. However, poor sleeping habits, dehydration, excessive stress, and aging all have negative effects on your dark circles.
How Does The Procedure Work?
During this treatment, the filler is injected below your muscle and above your bone. As the filler makes its way into your face it will slowly settle in the upper cheek and eye area, leaving you with results that make you look healthy and rejuvenated.
What to Expect During the Procedure
Before the filler is administered, your eye area will be cleansed and a licensed professional will apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to numb the area. After the numbing cream takes full effect, a professional will precisely inject the filler under your eyes using a thin needle.
After the filler is in your skin, it will be gently adjusted to the areas that you want it. This process generally takes around 15 minutes with clear results that can be seen immediately after.
After The Procedure
If you are prone to redness or swelling, a doctor will provide you with an ice pack to apply to the area. These effects will wear off relatively quickly, so there’s no cause for concern. A few days after your procedure, you will go in for a check-up to make sure that everything is going smoothly and to see if you need any additional filler added.
How Long Will It Last?
Under-eye filler typically lasts anywhere from 9-12 months. You won’t have to worry about constantly coming back for touch-ups because this treatment stimulates your collagen production and allows your body to replenish its dwindling supply.
Is Under-Eye Filler For Everyone?
Not all people are good candidates for under-eye filler. Those who smoke are at high risk for procedures and are discouraged from undergoing this one, in particular. Smoking causes blood clots and can delay healing or, in some cases, cause the skin in an area to die by cutting off proper blood flow.
