Dark circles and under-eye hollowness can make even the most rested person look tired. These unflattering shadows are usually hereditary and do not respond to brightening serums or 8+ hours of sleep. The good news is that many patients see tremendous improvements with under-eye filler-- a treatment offered at Dallas Dermatology Partners.
Some people are born with minimal fatty tissue beneath the eyes, making the tear toughs more prominent. Dermal fillers are a safe, non-surgical way to improve under-eye hollowness with the added benefit of building elastin and collagen.
The beauty of under-eye filler treatment is that patients look refreshed within a few hours of their appointment. Soft tissue filler smooths out the uneven contours beneath the eyes, meaning less need for concealer and a brighter, more refreshed look.
Under-eye filler is a gel-like substance primarily composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar molecule in the body that binds to water. Our dermatologists generally prefer Juvederm Volbella XC or Restylane to even out deep tear troughs or orbital hollowing.

The longevity of dermal filler for under-eye circles and hollows depends on the patient’s age, metabolism, and lifestyle. Most of our patients return for a touch-up after 8-12 months.
Under-eye fillers for dark circles may sound a little intimidating, but the treatment is much easier than you think. Most hyaluronic acid fillers contain lidocaine, which numbs the area. Each under-eye injection is carefully administered with a tiny needle or a small, blunt-tipped cannula.
You may experience a feeling of pressure, but the process itself is not painful. Our dermatologists are very conservative when injecting this delicate area since overfilling can yield a poor aesthetic outcome. We ask patients to return in two weeks for any necessary touch-ups. From start to finish, under-eye filler takes less than 25 minutes.
How to Prepare for Under-Eye Fillers for Wrinkles
As with other cosmetic injectables, the most important thing is to stop taking blood-thinning medications five days before treatment. In addition, your risk of bruising will be reduced if you don’t take naproxen, fish oil supplements, aspirin, and ibuprofen.
Eye Trough Filler Aftercare Tips
Tear trough correction with dermal filler is a minimally invasive procedure with zero downtime. Some patients experience minor swelling or lumps at the injection site, but this should resolve in a few days and can be helped with cold compresses. Bruising is common below the eyes and is easily camouflaged with makeup. Avoid any heavy pressure to the treatment area for one month post-procedure.
