When you lose volume under the eyes, it can make you look old and tired. The tear troughs can become pronounced, and hollows can appear under the eyes. It is normal for skin to become thinner and fat loss to occur in the face as you get older. To combat the effects under the eyes, there are non-surgical treatments available. At Uptown Body Contouring in NYC, we offer under eye filler treatment to smooth tear troughs and hide hollows for a more youthful appearance.
Hyaluronic acid, collagen, elastin and fat all play roles in maintaining youthful skin and facial firmness. All of these components dissipate with age, and it is especially noticeable under the eyes. The eyelid skin is delicate and thin even in youth, so it is vulnerable to the aging process. Lines and wrinkles can form around the eyes as the skin loses elasticity. Plus, loss of fat and tissue deepen tear troughs and the eye hollows with age. The result is eyes that look tired and older with dark circles, bags and wrinkles.
Non-Surgical Under Eye Rejuvenation
While plastic surgery can tighten the lower eyelid, in the early stages, there are non-surgical treatments to refresh under the eye. Facial fillers can make a tremendous difference for under eye rejuvenation. Hyaluronic acid can provide under eye filler treatment, adding volume under the skin and in the hollows around the eyes. The effects are almost immediate, plumping lines and wrinkles while filling in tear troughs to eliminate the dark shadows under the eyes.
Facial filler injections are minimally-invasive and do not require downtime. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio can perform under eye filler treatment in about a half an hour at our clinic in Uptown Manhattan. The most common side effects are bruising or swelling at the injection site, but these are mild and go away in a few days. The filler effects can last for a year or longer, depending on the product used.
If you have hollows or wrinkles under your eyes, come see us at Uptown Body Contouring. We offer under eye and tear trough filler injections at our clinic in New York City. Contact our practice today to book a consultation or treatment with Dr. Del Vecchio to refresh your under eye area.
