Frequently Asked Questions
Is Under Eye Filler Safe?
Under eye filler is largely considered safe when seeing a qualified and trained provider. Like all filler injections, under eye filler comes with associated risks. The biggest risk includes those to the eye which is why hyaluronic acid fillers are preferred because they can quickly be reversed and limit the risk of complications.
A typical under eye filler injection is just as safe as any other filler procedure. If you have certain medical conditions or situations that may put you at higher risk, your provider may recommend an alternative treatment.
Are There Alternatives To Filler For The Under Eyes?
Depending on the concerns you have and several other factors, there are alternatives to under eye filler. Some of the most popular options include:
The right treatment is decided based upon your needs, anatomy, age, medical history, and countless other factors. Your provider can discuss all of your options with you to help you determine the best one.
Does Filler Under The Eyes Hurt?
There may be some slight discomfort or pain associated with tear trough filler. However, numbing cream is used to numb the skin and most hyaluronic acid fillers have lidocaine to help minimize pain. Patients often tolerate under eye injections without too much pain.
What Is The Tyndall Effect?
The Tyndall Effect is a harmless condition where the filler is visible under the skin and causes a blueish tint. It can occur anywhere filler is injected, but due to the especially thin skin under the eyes, the Tyndall Effect is most common there. If it happens, your injector will likely dissolve the filler and reinject deeper to prevent it.
Will I Bruise After Tear Trough Fillers?
Bruising is a possible side effect of under eye filler. Not every patient will experience bruising, but if you do, it should go away within two weeks. Dr. Sessa takes precautions to avoid bruising, but sometimes it still occurs.
If you know that you are prone to bruising after injections, avoid caffeine the day of your injections, limit or cease the use of blood thinning medications or supplements, and follow your aftercare instructions.
How Much Is Under Eye Filler?
The exact cost of under eye filler will depend on how many syringes of filler your provider uses and the type of filler used. You find the starting price for our fillers on our price list.
