Sculptra Under The Eyes
Sculpture Used for Tear Troughs
There is what is known as off-label usage of drugs and medical products that are not only perfectly legitimate and effective, but also very commonly performed. Sculptra is a product that has unfortunately developed a bad reputation, and many doctors no longer use it. When done properly, Sculptra has many applications, including the tear troughs. Gentle massage for a few minutes a few times per day is very good, and will encourage a smooth, even result.
Sculptra is technically not a filler. It is a crystalline polymer that promotes collagen production, which in turn causes volume increases and wrinkle reduction.

I love Sculptra and use it routinely on the face to build collagen and promote a more youthful appearance. I don't typically use Sculptra under the eyes since Restylane and Belotero work so well. If you are concerned you should consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert in this delicate under eye area. eMatrix also is fabulous at tightening the skin under the eyes.
