Fine wrinkles around the eye are caused by age, sun and repetitive muscle movement (squinting). Botox, laser resurfacing and bulk heating (radiofrequency) are the most effective treatments to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you are hollow under the eye then a filler can also be helpful. Fillers act to expand the overlying skin and thereby diminish lines. My experience is that Restylane and Belotero are more reliable fillers under the eye because they bind less water than Juvederm. Juvederm is more likley to result in a puffy appearance under the eye due to its hydrophilic (water loving) nature.
Can I use Juvederm under the eyes for small lines/ wrinkles to look more fresh and at the chic bones?

Juvederm and other Dermal Fillers Can Be Used Under the Eyes
Fillers can be injected in this area — most use Belotero or Restylane here — but in the right skilled person, Juvederm can surely be used. One of the neurotoxins — Botox, Dysport or Xeomin — can all be used here, again by skilled injectors. And lasers and radiofrequency devices, many kinds can be used to make a positive difference.
As important as the above are, skin care is equally important, as is sunscreen. Your dermatologist can best guide you here.

Juvederm and where to place?
Juvederm is a great long lasting filler for areas of the cheeks, chin, and nasolabial area. I prefer Belotero and Botox for fine lines under and around the eyes. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience in cosmetic facial injections.

Treatments for small lines and wrinkles
In my practice, we wouldn't use a filler for fine lines and wrinkles on the eyelids themselves- the skin is too thin and delicate. A resurfacing procedure would be much better in my opinion. We would use fillers (usually Restylane or Belotero) to camouflage hollowing under the eyes, but I wouldn't use them in the skin of the lid. Good luck! I hope this helps!
