Fillers Can Camouglage Malar Bags
Owing to concerns about the unwanted bluish-colored Tyndall Effect, I typically do not inject ordinary fillers in this area, such as plain Restylane, into the delicate, thin tissues under the eyes. In my Upper East Side Manhattan practice, I prefer to use Belotero Balance, which possesses little to no tendency for engendering the Tyndall Effect. In my Israel satellite facility, where a far greater number of regulatory agency approved fillers and volumizers are available, I typically opt for Teosyal Redensity II.
Since the infraorbital area is subject to little mechanical force (even with tight blinking), I have found that fillers injected properly in that region tend to last far, far longer than when the same filler is injected, say in the nasolabial smile lines, which are subjected to a great deal of mechanical stresses from smiling and laughing. Two months is a surprisingly short interval of time for the effects to last.
I would suggest consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with experience and expertise in the nonsurgical rejuvenation of the periorbital area using fillers. Make sure to a ask to see his/her before and after photos.
