When it comes to dealing with dark circles and eye bags, many women are willing to try every concealer and eye cream available. There are also those who will try to get enough sleep, reduce sodium intake and drink plenty of water, hoping that it will help to get rid of dark circles and sunken eyes.
While using concealers, drinking water, and getting enough sleep are standard beauty recommendations, they have their limitations as dark eye circles and eye bags are also caused by loss of volume due to aging.
If you have tried a lot of products available but see little to no improvements, it’s time to consult an experienced aesthetic doctor in Singapore and consider facial fillers for eye bags and dark eye circles. These safe and FDA-cleared injectable treatments can minimize the appearance of dark circles and eye bags instantly by restoring volume in the tear trough.
At Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, we offer different types of dermal fillers that will not just help restore your skin’s elasticity and youthfulness, but also reduce the appearance of dark circles and eye bags.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Filler
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in the body, which is responsible for the skin’s firmness and suppleness. Fillers made from HA can help restore lost skin volume and structure.
Juvederm® is a FDA-cleared HA dermal filler that is safely used to improve eye bags, as well as fine lines and nasolabial folds. It can also be used to restore volume to sunken cheeks, fill the lips and increase the height of the nose bridge without going under the knife. The best part is, you can immediately notice that the skin looks firm and restored.
Juvederm family of fillers include Volite, the latest, 3rd Generation range of collagen skin boosters that has just been released. It is an innovative product designed to improve skin quality and nourish skin from inside out for up to 9-12 months.
Besides from being an effective skin booster, Volite filler can also be used to treat the under eye bags or tear trough as it molds very well and it gives a very natural look.
These fillers are similar to the calcium minerals naturally present in the body, eliminating the need for allergy testing. It leaves only natural collagen behind, as the body absorbs the filler microspheres and gel over time.
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is one type of filler made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in water-based gel. It plumps and restores volume loss to give you a refreshed look. Radiesse can also be used to fill in fine lines and nasolabial folds as well as add volume to the cheeks and lower face, with results that can be seen immediately and can last for at least 12 months.
How Fillers Work?
Fillers are injected in the skin to restore loss volume due to aging. One specialized technique is called “Liquid Lift”, which is used for injecting advanced fillers, leading to a natural gentle lift of the overall facial feature. It can improve eye bags, reduce lines and wrinkles, and restore a natural facial contour to give you a rested and youthful appearance.
In Cutis Laser Clinics in Singapore, Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, recommends to start with cheek fillers first as this is the main foundation of the face. Once the cheeks are filled in, it will result in an improvement in your under eye area. Rest assured that Dr. Sylvia is a conservative filler injector with many years of experience in providing natural results for every patients.
Depending on the amount of fillers needed and the number of areas to be treated, the treatment can take between 30 to 90 minutes. As the procedure is non-surgical, there is no recovery required and you can see the results immediately.
In order to lessen the risk of bruising, avoid taking aspirin or fish oil supplements at least 2 weeks before and after your filler treatment. Among the common post-effects of filler include redness and some swelling of the treated area which will resolve in a few days. If bruising is present, it can last for at least 10 days. To reduce swelling, cold compress can be applied.
