Every time you look in the mirror, dark circles are staring back at you. You’ve tried everything, from getting more sleep to using creams and ointments. Nothing works. It makes you look tired all of the time and takes away from your appearance. Fortunately, you do have a non-surgical alternative. Dermal fillers are a popular solution that can correct dark circles under the eyes, making you look refreshed and rested.
What Causes Dark Circles that Don’t Go Away?
While it is common to get those dark smudges under your eyes after a few sleepless nights, permanent dark circles often come with aging. As you get older, you begin to lose volume in your face due to a decrease in collagen production. Hollows under the eyes in what is known as the tear trough are common. You see dark circles because the skin becomes thinner and the muscle beneath the skin becomes visible. In addition to shadows under your eyes, you may also be plagued with bags as the tissues under your eyes begin to protrude. These signs of aging are unwelcome, but restoring volume in the face is key.
Dermal Fillers Can Help
Dermal fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm® can erase your dark shadows and rejuvenate your appearance. You’ll look healthy, well-rested, and more youthful once volume has been restored beneath your eyes. These types of dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in all living things.
Eventually, the hyaluronic acid is absorbed into the body and rarely causes side effects. Great care must be taken for the best results as fillers are injected in a sensitive area beneath your eyes. A local anesthetic is used to ensure you will not feel pain during this outpatient procedure. Afterward, you will be able to return to your regular activities. Dermal fillers may cause some redness, swelling, or bruising under your eyes, but recovery takes place in a matter of days.
Are You a Candidate for Dermal Fillers to Correct Dark Circles Under Your Eyes?
Dermal fillers could be an effective alternative for you if you are tired of looking at dark circles every day. If you are prone to scarring, have a skin condition, a bleeding condition, or you have severe allergies, you may need to consider other options.
You’ll be able to enjoy an immediate difference as volume is restored to your face, creating a more youthful, refreshed appearance. You don’t have to accept dark shadows underneath your eyes.
