Do you see tired-looking eyes staring back at you when you look in the mirror? What you may be noticing is a hollowness just below your eyes in an area called the tear trough. Some people are born with under-eye bags and hollows, while others develop these dark areas as they age. In either case, these changes can be addressed and reversed with under-eye filler in Troy.
Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell can listen to your concerns and aesthetic goals to determine whether under-eye filler is the best injectable treatment for you. She can answer all your questions about our range of surgical and non-surgical treatments to help you make an informed decision about your cosmetic transformation.
Two things contribute to darkness under your eyes: shadowing caused by the sinking of the tear trough area as well as natural skin pigmentation. Under-eye filler can help get rid of the sunken or irregular area causing shadows, but it will not lighten skin color.
The under-eye region is very delicate, so only softer hyaluronic acid facial fillers can be used to help lift and fill this area. The ideal filler should also allow for movement to maintain natural-looking facial expressions. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will suggest an ideal hyaluronic acid filler.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in your body, so these fillers are hypoallergenic and will be safely broken down by your body over time. Different companies use special technology to make their under-eye filler gels, but our Troy team can help you determine which is best for your situation.
We provide under-eye filler at our Troy location, meaning no trips to the operating room. The procedure itself only takes a few minutes, so your appointment can easily fit into your busy schedule.
Dr. DeLuca-Pytell always prioritizes your comfort and can provide extra relief using the Pro-Nox anesthesia system. This system uses a carefully controlled amount of nitrous oxide gas (also called laughing gas) to help alleviate pain and anxiety. You manage your own anesthesia by inhaling doses when needed. The nitrous oxide takes effect within seconds. Once the procedure is complete, the effects of Pro-Nox should quickly subside.
You may have puffiness, swelling, and/or bruising after the procedure. Careful use of cold packs can help alleviate these side effects. You should avoid strenuous activity, exposure to extreme hot or cold temperatures, and rubbing or massaging the area for at least six hours post-treatment.
You will notice improvement almost immediately. Over the following weeks, the swelling subsides, and the results become more natural.
Under-eye fillers are not permanent, but they can last from six to more than 12 months. The amount of time your results will last depends on how rapidly your body breaks down the hyaluronic acid. You may decide to have touch-up appointments to maintain your new look.
You have options for addressing tired, sunken eyes. Adding volume to the under-eye area can create natural-looking changes that help you achieve a more youthful look. Call Dr. DeLuca-Pytell for an appointment to discuss under-eye filler in Troy and how it can help you.
