Restylane is great under the eyes, especially if the injector is good

I really really like the procedure treating the tear troughs with Restylane.  It's fantastic and patients are frequently pleasantly surprised at how much nicer they look with the fillers.

Look for someone you can visit who specializes in fillers under the eyes as it is highly technique-dependent!


Good luck in your search for information!

Tear trough filler

An evaluation in person is best to assess if you need filler for the tear trough region.  Make sure you go to an experienced doctor.

Restylane and treatment

It's difficult to determine true volume loss without seeing you in person, however, that area is very commonly treated with dermal fillers. Visit/consult with a reputable and well-trained injector for your best options.

Volumizing Fillers and Fillers Work Well For Hollows, Tear Troughs, and Dark Circles Under The Eyes

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hollows under the eyes respond very nicely to the injection of small amounts of volumizing fillers, such as Perlane L or Juvederm UltraPlus XC, injected into the upper cheek area directly below the hollows themselves. From this location, the volumizing agent can be massaged into place within the hollow area--raising it up.

If the tear troughs are prominent, tiny droplets of of Juvederm Ultra XC, can be injected along the length of the trough through a very fine needle to raise the depression and blend it with the cheek below and create a fine gentle grade between the upper cheek and the region directly below the lashes.

When dark circles are troublesome, a small amount of Radiesse (a whitish calcium-based agent) can be mixed with the Juvederm Ultra XC to lighten the overlying skin.

Restylane Tear Trough Injection Is a Want and Not a Need

From your photos you appear to have very nice eyelid symmetry.  A complete examination and review of different angles are necessary to make a final decision.  You certainly do not NEED a lower eyelid injection but if your desire is to improve the lower eyelid junction to the cheek you should have a complete consultation. Restylane may be of benefit to improve the tear trough.
