Under Eye Rejuvenation Treatments
Treating the underlying cause of the problem is the key to good outcome e.g. cease aggravating factors that we can control.

Under eye and Cheek lift with dermal filler to correct dark circles, eye bags and hollowness
Volume lost at the junction between the upper cheek and lower eyelid causing worsening tear trough deformity. This is one of the earliest sign of ageing, commonly starts late 20’s but becomes more visible at late 30’s. Therefore, if you have the groove between your lower eyelid and cheek (tear trough), just simple replacement of this lost volume with under eye dermal filler can lead to dramatic improvement. The filler is placed below the skin and soft tissue thereby lifting up these hollow areas, making the tear trough appear shallower. In most patients there is an almost immediate improvement with a reduction in the depth and width of the tear trough itself. Dark circles which are often due to shadowing within the trough itself similarly improve.
Cheek drooping can be due to facial aging or rapid fat lost/ weight lost. Cheek lift using voluminsing dermal filler can effectively give you a smoother transition between your under eye and cheek because your under eyelids will match your cheek height and volume therefore improvement of the under eye bags, puffy appearance and visible veins in the lower eyelid are improved, it will also reduce the dark circle. As a bonus effect from lifting your cheek, not only your eyes will look more awake and bright, you will have more contoured face, nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds) will improve, all these giving you a more refresh and happy face.

In some patients though, there may remain some residual dark circles due to actual longstanding skin pigmentation built up over many years. In these patients they often notice an enhanced effect from using makeup to mask these pigmentation. As we have mentioned above there are many causes of dark circles, for patients that have pigmentation problems, they could apply a prescription only cream to lighten the pigmentation and enhance the overall effect of eye rejuvenation treatment.

Prescription only topical skincare products may be recommended by your doctor to reduce dark circles caused by hyperpigmentation from melasma or sun damage.
