If you are looking for a more permanent under eye circles treatment than the range of creams, serums and gels on the market, you may want to consider Restylane under eyes.
Restylane is a filler that is often used as an alternative to collagen to enhance other parts of the face, such as the lips and around the mouth.
A facial filler plumps up the part of the face it is injected into, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and leading to a more smooth, youthful appearance.
Restylane was approved by the FDA in 2003 as a facial treatment, and many doctors now offer it as an under eye circles treatment. It is made of a biodegradable hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance present in all living organisms. The clear gel substance is injected directly under the surface of the skin. Although this is a more permanent remedy compared to topical treatments, it is not completely permanent because it is slowly degraded by the body. This does not cause any harm to the individual, as it completely dissolves without any residue, however it does mean that the treatment needs to be carried out every six months or so. Results vary between individuals, and depend on the condition of the skin, the person’s lifestyle and the severity of the under eye circles.
More Research Needed For Use Of Restylane Under Eyes
It is generally agreed that more research needs to be carried out regarding the use of under eye Restylane to treat dark circles. However, this treatment is becoming increasingly popular because it plumps up the hollow area underneath the eye. The dark shadows are caused by the blood vessels under the skin, which become more obvious as a person ages and the skin under the eye grows thinner and loses elasticity. However many doctors will not recommend this treatment for use on the area beneath the eyes, so make sure you are aware of the potential risks before you proceed.
An alternative to treatment using Restylane under eyes is fat grafting. This involves removing intact pieces of fat from another part of the body, such as the buttocks or thighs, and placing them into an area under direct vision, via a small incision.
This should not be confused with fat injections, where a fat solution is injected with a needle directly under the surface of the skin. Again, this procedure involves fat loss from another area of the body.
