Artefill or Bellafill for Under the Eyes or Tear Trough Area
As a tear trough filler, Bellafill or Artefill is terrific. There are many patients who have wonderful results and who do not have to keep going back on a regular basis to get refilled. If a micro-cannula is used, Bellafill can be very precisely placed and the bruising and swelling is minimal as compared to a needle technique. You can get swelling a bruising under the eye that in certain patients can last a lot longer than one would expect but invariably this will go away.
I have added a safety video for you and a link to many before and after photos of Bellafill used under the eyes.
I hope that helps.
All the best.

Bellafill for Tear Troughs
Use of bellafill for tear tough correction is considered an off label use of the product. Injection of the tear troughs with any dermal filler is a challenging and should only be done by expert injectors. We have successfully and safely injected many patients with bellafill into the tear trough area. Bellafill is a great product for the tear troughs because of it's softness and natural feel as well as the fact that it is not visible under the skin. I would recommend, as we do in our practice, only having your tear troughs injected with the canula technique.
Our clients who have had bellafill placed into their tear troughs have been very pleased and had great results, even correcting inherited tear troughs that people feel are not fixable. The nice thing about bellafill is it is a long-term filler so you don't have to keep refilling the same area. Because it stimulates collagen production, it also has the added effects to thicken and improve the overlying skin appearance as well.
Eye hollows/tear troughs
Treatment of eye hollows is considered an off-label use of Bellafill. Given the physical properties of this filler, I would not recommend using it under the eyes. Most importantly, if you do choose to have filler injected into the tear troughs, be sure you go to a physician with a lot of experience injecting this area as it is a very difficult area to inject.
Bellafill for under the eye and tear tough is amazing! There are many patients who have wonderful results and who do not have to keep going back on a regular basis to get refilled. Bellafill is smooth and has a natural look!
Bellafill can be very precisely placed and the bruising and swelling is minimal. Icing the area will help with the bruising. Suggested amount of syringes can be determined based on age, collagen loss, and texture of the skin.
I hope this helps you on your journey!:)
BELLAFILL UNDER THE EYES / TEAR TROUGH REGION
Due to the thickness and other properties of Bellafill, I do not recommend its use in the tear troughs/under eye area. I also prefer to use other fillers or implants for enhancement of the perioral (around mouth) or lip regions of the face.
Best of luck!!
