What Is The Best Injectable Filler For Under Eye Hollows?
Dermal fillers are becoming a trusted and effective solution to managing hollows under the eyes
Bags under the eyes, or eye hollows, can make anyone look older, stressed, and tired. It is no surprise that many people feel very self-conscious when hollows under the eyes appear, and they can start even in the twenties and thirties. The best injectable fillers for this type of procedure are typically Restylane and Juvederm Ultra.

What Are Restylane And Juvederm Ultra?
Restylane and Juvederm Ultra are non-animal derived hyaluronic acid fillers, and the result is a soft and natural looking correction that lasts anywhere from 6 to 9 months, depending on the product and the individual patient.
It is very important to receive a dermal filler treatment from a cosmetic surgeon who understands facial anatomy and the placement of the injectable fillers. This will be safer and result in an overall better look and feel than the alternative.
The Juvederm product now contains lidocaine, which eliminates the need for painful freezing injections and general discomfort. Additional topical numbing agents can also be used for the procedure, but with lidocaine already included, this is usually not necessary. However, it can be added to ensure the comfort of any patient who is worried about pain. The procedure itself takes only 15 to 45 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated, and there is hardly any downtime. This has made Juvederm a popular product for treating bags under the eyes and other signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and the loss of facial volume.
Restylane is known for being very effective for adding volume to the face and filling in fine lines. Restylane is owned by Medicis, a division of Valeant Canada. It has become very well received for its natural look that is retained for the lifespan of the product, which is typically 6 to 9 months. Restylane also contains lidocaine, a numbing agent that will freeze the area and significantly reduce or eliminate the pain.

What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Our dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based. It improves the skin’s appearance and texture, helps retain collagen, and improves elasticity. As we age, we lose the ability to absorb the vitamins and nutrients that keep the skin young and soft. Hyaluronic acid is used in dermal fillers and high end skin serums to support skin health and to retain a youthful appearance.
What Is The Recovery Time?
One of the advantages of using dermal fillers to correct hollows under the eyes is that the downtime is minimal. Patients typically experience some swelling and bruising, but the majority of any side effects are significantly reduced after only a couple of hours. Patients should, however, plan their injectable filler treatment a couple of weeks to 1 month before major social events such as weddings and reunions, especially if an individual is known to heal slower and bruise more than average.
