As you age, one of the things you will notice is the slow but steady “hollowing” of the area directly below your eyes. This occurs when the fat deposits under your eyes shift in position. While this will inevitably happen, there are certain factors that could accelerate it including genetics, overexposure to the sun, smoking, and stress. Surgery to reposition the fat back to its original location used to be the procedure done to address this hollowness. This surgery was effective and quite permanent, but was both invasive and expensive. Nowadays, there is a safer albeit less permanent procedure to address this issue. People now use fillers to fill out the hollowing.
Before deciding to undergo hollow eye treatment through the use of an under eye filler at a New York City Clinic, you will need to consider two things:
Types of filler material
There are several types of materials that can be used as fillers to address hollow eye, but these two are determined to be the safest.
1. Hyaluronic Acid – Marketed under different brand names, and also known as hyaluronan, hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body and, therefore, easily accepted without any rejection issues. The effects, however, are relatively short (6 to 8 months), which means that treatment must be repeated every so often.
2. Your own fat – This is obviously the safest filler that can be used for you. Under this procedure, fat is extracted from an area of your body where you have excess (usually the outer thigh) and injected into your lower eye area. This filler lasts for years and results into a more natural look. The only downside to this material is its unpredictability, as sometimes the results vary.
The one who will administer the filler
If done improperly, the injection of filler material could result to an uneven or unnatural look. At its worst, it could cause blindness. It is critical to choose a doctor with the skill, expertise, and experience who can administer the filler. The procedure is non-invasive. Consult with the right physician to help you decide on which treatment or filler is best for you.
In considering under eye filler treatment, take some time to consider your options. Consult your physician and look at the materials that would fit you. Choose well and make yourself happy with the results.
