More than any other area of the face, the eyes are attention-catching. Plus, making eye contact is a key way that people connect with one another, so it’s not surprising that signs of aging in the eye area is a common cosmetic concern among patients. Under-eye circles, crow’s feet, and hollowness around the eyes can make the face appear older and less rested.
Dermal fillers provide a minimally-invasive treatment solution for aging eyes. By lifting, smoothing, and restoring lost volume in the skin, dermal fillers can effectively rejuvenate the eye area.
Types of Dermal Fillers for the Eye Area
A broad range of dermal fillers is available to patients today, each one providing a unique formulation for various facial concerns. Many dermal fillers are appropriate for the delicate eye area. These include:
Juvederm comes in many different formulations. Juvederm Vollure XC and Juvederm XC are both excellent options to give the eyes a youthful appearance.
Juvederm Ultra XC
Juvederm Ultra XC contains a smooth hyaluronic formula, adding a natural-looking boost of volume to the skin. It can be used as a solution to hollowness in the eyes, as well as lines around the eyes. Results from Juvederm Ultra XC last for around nine months.
Juvederm Vollure XC
Juvederm Vollure XC contains hyaluronic acid to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It’s an effective solution for under-eye circles and tear troughs. What sets Juvederm Vollure XC apart from other Juvederm formulations is the inclusion of Vycross technology. This combines high and low molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, allowing for more natural molding to the sunken skin in the eye area. This also makes Juvederm Vollure XC one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers available, with results lasting 18 months or longer.
Restylane and Restylane Lyft are dermal fillers that can be used to restore a youthful appearance around the eyes. Both fillers contain hyaluronic acid to smooth and plump the skin, working with the skin’s natural collagen to rejuvenate the treatment area.
The main difference between these two Restylane formulations is the size of the hyaluronic gel particles. With larger particles in Restylane Lyft, it’s possible to plump treatment areas requiring fillers with greater density. Additionally, Restylane typically lasts for 6 to 9 months, while Restylane Lyft may last for 9 to 12 months.
