Does Prevelle work good for dark circles? How long does it last in that area? I heard it's a great option because its soft and doesn''t create lumps.
Prevelle for Dark Circles?
Doctor Answers (2)
Not all causes of dark circles are treated with HA fillers
In my opinion, there are 4 things that cause dark undereye circles:
(1) hypertrophy or thickening of the orbicularis muscle
(2) hyperpigmentation or darkening of the undereye skin
(3) hollowing or concavity in the "tear trough" area - This is treated with fillers.
(4) small viens in the area showing through
It is best to be evaluated by a physician in order to figure out which of these causes is your issue. Although Prevelle can be injected in the tear trough, I find that Restylane is the best product for this area.
Fillers are not really effective for dark circles.
