I am only 19, however, the area under my eyes is very hollow and the doctor said she would inject along the bone to fill the area. I am not too confident if perlane is the best option. Also, she said it would hurt so to avoid this she would inject adrenaline prior which would 'block' the area??? Could someone please tell me if this is the right way to go? Not too sure ...
Perlane for Under Eye Hollows?
Doctor Answers 20
Injection of filler under the eyes
My personal preference is to use Restylane under the eyes. The skin in this area is very thin on most patients and Restylane is the least likely product to be visible through the skin. Perlane is preferable for areas of the face with thicker skin, as the product is more cross-linked. The under eye injections are quite comfortable and typically patients do not require even topical numbing cream for this procedure.
Perlane under the eyes
I prefer not to use perlane under the eyes in the hollow because it is a fairly thick product. My preference is restylane for this area.
Under Eye Hollows and Fillers
Perlane which is now called Restylane Lyft is much too thick for the under eye area. Restylane and Belotero are much better products for this area which can be easily over-injected and swollen. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert in under eye fillers for the best cosmetic result. Best, Dr. Green

Teosyal Redensity II is great for under-eye hollows
Although Perlane is a great filler, I personally recommend Teosyal Redensity II for the tear trough area. This helps address fine lines, dark circles, and deep hollows under the eyes. My patients have loved the results achieved with Teosyal Redensity II injections, and we find it extremely popular for those not yet ready for blepharoplasty (corrective eye surgery). Normally patients are fine with just a topical anaesthetic at most. I would recommend seeking a second opinion from a certified facial plastic surgeon.
Under eye hollows
Under the eyes, Resty is Besty
as others have said, I also prefer Restylane under the eyes. All Hyaluronic Acid filler (Restylane, Perlane, Juvaderm) absorb water, but it seems that Restylane does so much more predictably than the others. Juvaderm or Perlane under the eyes can theoretically give you intermittent puffiness that can be a bit unpredictable.
As an aside, filler under the eyes can do wonders for patients who have a "hill, valley, hill" problem under the eye- a true tear trough that is a hollowed ridge. It won't help patients with darkened, pigmented areas under the eyes, or eye puffiness alone (in fact, it can make puffiness look worse).
I would also recommend scheduling your injections when you can take a few days off. Injections in this area can cause you some puffiness and bruising for a few days.
Perlane under the eyes
Perlane and Restyane can be used to reduce the hallows under the eyes. They can be used to reduce the appearance of ages under the eyes.
Topical aesthetic can be used, although the procedure is well tolerated especially when the -L product is used, which contains lidocaine.
Perlane to under eye area
Any dermal filler will help provide volume to a "hollow" under eye area. I would recommend having a thorough assessment with a reputable provider for further education and information, and be sure you understand what is being presented and that your expectations are in line with theirs.
Filling under eye hollows
It is difficult to recommend for or against treatment without seeing you but generally speaking I prefer Restylane for the under eye hollows...though very similar, Perlane is thicker and consists of larger particles which can be more difficult to work with in the thin, delicate under eye area. Most patients are surprised how tolerable the injections in this area are. The majority of patients are fine with only topical anesthetic but injectable anesthetic (Lidocaine) can also be used in small amounts at the needle insertion site.

Perlane is too thick to be placed just below the eyes and at 19, I can't imagine what you'd be treating. It is possible for teens to have pre-mature lower eyelid bags but these more often appear during the early 20's. You might consider seeing a facial plastic surgeon, plastic and cosmetic surgeon or a dermatologist for a consultation before proceeding.
