I’m 35 and interested in a lower eyelid lift. I read somewhere that some types of Injectables can be used as a sort of non-surgical lower eyelid lift. Is this true? I think it was Restylane that I saw used. How effective is this?
You read correctly. When patients begin to show signs of aging in the lower eyelids, they can sometimes be treated with facial fillers. The eye is located in a socket, which houses the eye. There is orbital fat that surrounds the eye and protects it from it actually hitting the bony socket. With time, the fat begins to bulge out underneath the eye. This is seen as “bags” underneath the eye. Initially, when the “bags” begin to develop, fillers can be used to “camouflage” the “bags.” The filler is placed through the skin and placed on the orbital bone. The procedure takes about 10 minutes to perform and most patients are very happy with the result. I prefer to use Restylane in this area. The results last approximately 7 months.
