“You look tired.”
It doesn’t matter if you truly are exhausted—no one wants to hear these words. And if it weren’t for those darn under-eye bags, maybe you wouldn’t have to.
Fortunately, dermal fillers can help revitalize and restore the youthfulness of your face by eliminating the appearance of under-eye bags—without surgery. Dermal fillers are growing in popularity thanks to their quick application and immediate results they provide. They work wonders for wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. If you’re interested in banishing under-eye bags in particular, take a look below at the dermal fillers we offer at Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine in San Diego.
Belotero was designed to temporarily smooth out and fill in moderate-to-severe nasolabial folds, but it works beautifully for under-eye bags as well. Unlike cosmetic treatments that relax the muscles under the skin (like Botox), Belotero is a hyaluronic acid that integrates into the skin tissue, correcting lines and wrinkles and restoring volume to sagging under-eye skin. Results last 6-12 months.
One of the earliest dermal fillers on the market, Juvéderm increases your skin’s capacity to hold water through its unique hyaluronic acid formula. This is a winning strategy considering hyaluronic acid can absorb up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, which adds volume under the surface of sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid also binds with collagen to support skin, and elastin, which transports nutrients to skin, leaving your face looking fresher than ever for 9-12 months.
Juvéderm Voluma is one of the newer products in the Juvéderm family (FDA approved in 2014), with longevity that so far can’t be beat. Unlike most dermal fillers that last anywhere between 6-12 months, Juvéderm Voluma’s results can last up to two years! The long-lasting magic is due to its unique stabilizing structure, which strengthens your skin and produces subtle lifting effects. And while Voluma was designed to add volume to cheeks, it works magic on under-eye bags as well.
Restylane uses a special formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid and works nearly anywhere on the face. Applications include adding volume and contour to lips; diminishing wrinkles and fine lines around the nose, mouth, eyes, and forehead; and filling aging-related “facial hollows” in the cheeks, chin, and of course the “orbital troughs” under and around the eyes (aka under-eye bags). And like most other dermal fillers, results last 6-12 months.
