Many cosmetic surgeons around the U.S. are now using dermal fillers known as Hyaluronic Acid to revitalize eyes without resorting to a more surgically intensive eye lift procedure. Through research and clinical trials, plastic surgeons believe HA fillers are a suitable alternative for improving the eye that’s long lasting.
HA fillers, similar to fat injections, are inserted in both the upper and lower eye region. Doing so adds volume and minimizes the appearance of tired, sunken eyes.
Surgeons use a local anesthetic for this procedure and it takes about an hour to complete.
Research has also showed HA fillers can last around 2 years and are completely reversible…they also only cause mild side effects such as light swelling or bruising.
Commenting on HA fillers helping patients rejuvenate their eyes, Dr. Val Lambros explains “The addition of volume may provide a better-looking result than traditional surgical procedures, and in some cases, filling in the brow expands the lid skin sufficiently to smooth wrinkles.”
