I am in my early twenties but i have hollow looking eyes. A year ago i lost a lot of weight from my face. Now my eyes look dark and sunken in. People are always telling me i look tired or unwell when i'm not. this has made me self concious and so i decided to find treatment. I heard about dermal fillers and think this would be a good solution. I would like them injected just under my eyebrow, upper-eyelid, so it covers my eyelid as it used to, and underneath the eye. is this safe? can you recommend?

The NHS these days recommends the use of these dermal fillers. So instead of trying out some private service go to a good hospital and try out some good doctor who can advice you which could be the best dermal filler treatment because the eyes are a very delicate part you cannot risk them for some advised experiment.
If I may ask, what is the usual Dermal Fillers Cost? I'm from australia by the way.
Hi Choco,

The cost of dermal fillers varies depending on the filler and the area treated. In general, a syringe of filler may cost $500-$800. Most importantly, choose your injecting physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.

Hi Rich, Restylane is the only filler that I feel comfortable injecting around the most delicate and unforgiving peri-ocular (eye) area. The results are immmediate and impressive. The filler is very safe, what is not very safe are some of the practioners who are wantonly injecting around this area. Choose your injecting experienced physician most carefully and stick to Restylane to minimize complications. Good luck and be well.

Hi Rich,

There are lots of fillers on the market but only some of them are appropriate for use under the eyes.

This doctor Q&A page may help: Which filler is best for under eyes (tear trough)?

The most important issue when you're researching fillers is to know that each filler has a different particle density. A thicker filler (like Radiesse) is generally not recommended for under the eyes because of this. Restylane and Juvederm are more common.

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!
