If you're looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive way to rejuvenate your under eye area, under eye filler could be the answer. It can help restore volume in the tear trough, which helps reduce puffiness and hollowing of the eyes.

But before you set up your first appointment, it's important to understand what under eye filler can do and how it works. We spoke to a few experts to learn more.


Restylane is an effective under eye filler, providing a temporary and minimally invasive solution for patients who wish to reduce the appearance of dark circles or hollows beneath their eyes. It is also an ideal treatment for clients who want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and nose, adding volume and definition to the face.

It is also the perfect product for reducing the pronounced ridge that forms at the junction of your nose and cheeks, known as the tear trough. This is an extremely versatile product and can be used to correct fine lines and wrinkles in any area of the face.

While dermal fillers offer excellent results, they also pose some risks and side effects that should be carefully considered. For example, if hyaluronic acid fillers are injected too close to the skin’s surface with too much pressure, serious vascular complications can develop, including permanent blindness in very rare cases.


Juvederm is an injectable dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA). It helps skin stay hydrated and plump, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and increasing skin volume.

It also stimulates collagen production, a natural protein that renews the appearance of skin over time. This makes Juvederm a great choice for people who want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles but don’t have the time or money to undergo surgical procedures.

In addition to being safe and effective, Juvederm has one of the longest lasting results. Depending on the filler you choose, your anti-aging results can last for between six and nine months, which is much longer than many other injectable treatments.

The procedure for this treatment is quick and easy, and it usually takes less than an hour. Afterwards, you can return to work or other commitments as soon as you’re ready. It’s a fast, convenient way to get the rejuvenation you need without taking too long away from your busy schedule.


Radiesse is an FDA-approved dermal filler that works to smooth and plump your skin. It also stimulates your body’s natural collagen production.

It is made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a gel. Its unique composition is ideal for correcting wrinkles and creases, including the under eye area.

The gel is injected through a fine needle into the targeted areas, which allows it to instantly add volume and eliminate the appearance of deep wrinkles and creases. It is a safe and effective alternative to surgical procedures such as facelifts or eyelid lifts.

This treatment is best for patients who want instant results and minimal downtime. It is most commonly used to reduce severe scarring from the cheekbones, diminish profound folds between the nose and the upper lip, and give a more youthful appearance to a small or drooping chin.

Fat Transfer

If you want to plump up hollows, bags and dark circles under your eyes with a dermal filler that’s more natural than synthetic wrinkle fillers, consider under eye fat transfer. This treatment is a popular choice among Los Angeles facial cosmetic surgeons because it helps improve the area’s overall condition and makes the face look rejuvenated, healthier and more youthful.

For this procedure, a patient’s own fat is harvested with a'micro liposuction' surgical procedure from areas like the hips, thighs and abdomen. The fat is purified to separate the healthy cells from those that are damaged or inflamed.

Once the fat is purified, it’s injected into the desired areas of your face using a small syringe. Unlike injectable dermal fillers, fat transfer is not a single procedure and can be repeated if necessary.

The recovery for under eye fat grafting is relatively fast and easy, with bruising and swelling typically subsiding in seven days. However, it’s important to note that not all the transferred fat cells survive, so a "touch up" may be needed in some cases.
