Undereye Fillers: Get Rid of Dark Circles, Sunken Eyes & Bags!
The area under the eyes is one of the first places where signs of aging begin to appear. Many people start to notice dark circles, sunken eyes, and under-eye bags as the years pass, which can make them look tired and older than they actually are.
Most people with undereye dark circles and bags have wasted money on numerous creams and serums without results. And while concealers can camouflage dark circles a little bit, they invariably show through. This is because the problem is that the skin beneath the eyes is extremely thin and delicate, allowing blood vessels to show through.
Concealers also do nothing to minimize bags under the eyes because they are typically caused by a buildup of fat and fluid in the area, which creates a puffy or swollen appearance.
Fortunately, undereye fillers AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI available at can be an effective way to treat dark circles, sunken eyes, and under-eye bags and restore a more youthful appearance to the face.
What Undereye Fillers Are Best?
Undereye fillers are injected into the area under the eyes to add volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles, sunken areas, and bags. The most commonly used dermal fillers for this purpose are those made of hyaluronic acid, including Juvéderm and Restylane.
Juvéderm Undereye Fillers
Juvéderm offers several formulas that can be used for undereye fillers, but the most commonly used under the eyes are Juvéderm Ultra and Juvéderm Volbella.
Juvéderm Ultra is a smooth, hyaluronic acid-based filler that can be used to add volume to hollow areas under the eyes. It is a good option for patients with mild to moderate undereye hollows, and can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the area.
Juvéderm Volbella is a newer addition to the Juvéderm family, and is a smooth, thinner formula originally designed for use in the lips and around the mouth. However, it is now being used for undereye hollows, as it is a softer, more pliable filler that can provide subtle volume without looking overdone. Additionally, Volbella contains a small amount of lidocaine, which can help make the injection process more comfortable for patients.
Ultimately, the choice between Juvéderm Ultra and Volbella will depend on the individual patient’s needs and the level of correction required for their undereye area.

Restylane Undereye Fillers
Restylane is another line of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are commonly used for under-eye rejuvenation. There are two specific Restylane formulas that are recommended for undereye fillers: Restylane-L and Restylane Lyft.
Restylane-L is specifically designed for fine lines and wrinkles, making it a popular choice for treating the delicate under-eye area. Its small particle size allows for precise placement, creating a natural-looking result. While it is currently FDA-approved for use in the nasolabial folds and it is often used for under-eye rejuvenation.
Restylane Lyft, on the other hand, is a more robust formula that is commonly used for deeper folds and wrinkles. It contains larger particles and is FDA-approved for use in the midface, making it an ideal choice for addressing the volume loss and hollowing that can occur beneath the eyes.
Both Restylane-L and Restylane Lyft are FDA-approved for use in the United States, but they are often used off-label for undereye rejuvenation. Dr. Ali and the certified and experienced nurse injectors at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI will assess your specific concerns and make recommendations based on your unique anatomy and appearance goals.
Can Scupltra be used as Undereye Filler?
In some case, Sculptra can also be used as an undereye filler, although it is not FDA-approved specifically for this purpose. Sculptra works differently from hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane. Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production and can be used to add volume to areas of the face that have lost collagen, including the undereye area.
Because Sculptra helps the body build its own collagen to plump and thicken skin naturally, the results are longer lasting than HA fillers. Sculptra is typically used for more significant volume loss.
It is important to note that the effects of Sculptra are not as immediate as hyaluronic acid fillers, and it may take multiple treatments to achieve the desired results. Additionally, Sculptra injections require more skill and experience to inject than HA fillers, as it is a thicker formula and as such it must be carefully placed and massaged to avoid lumpiness or nodules. Therefore, it is important to choose an experienced and skilled injector like Dr. Ali and the certified nurse injectors at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI if considering Sculptra for undereye filling.
Undereye Filler Procedure
During the undereye filler procedure, the filler is injected under the skin using a very fine needle. The injection site is numbed with a topical anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort during the procedure. The amount of filler used will depend on the extent of the issue being addressed and the desired outcome.
One of the most significant benefits of hyaluronic acid undereye fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane is the immediate results. Patients can see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of sunken eyes, dark circles, and under-eye bags almost immediately after the procedure. The effects of the filler typically last for 6 to 12 months, depending on the specific formulation and how the patient’s body reacts to the treatment.
Another benefit of undereye fillers is that they are a non-surgical treatment option. This means that patients can avoid the risks and complications associated with surgical procedures, such as anesthesia, scarring, and lengthy recovery times. The procedure typically takes less than an hour, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
There can be some bruising, swelling, redness, and sensitivity at the injection site, which can be covered with concealer and will resolve in a few days. More serious complications such as infection or allergic reactions or extremely rare when the undereye fillers are administered by an experienced and skilled injector like Dr. Ali and the certified nurse injectors at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI.
