One tell-tale sign of aging is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles in the facial area. Additionally, the eyes, known as the “windows to the soul,” can also contribute to not only an aged appearance but a tired one. This is often due to the formation of dark circles under the eyes from volume loss. At the practice of Dr. Edmund Kwan in New York City, patients can combat these imperfections without the need for surgical interventions. Instead, patients have the ability to improve their appearance with the use of dermal fillers under the eyes. NYC patients can use these injections for natural-looking and affordable results.
How do dermal fillers improve undereye volume loss?
With eye rejuvenation injections from Dr. Edmund Kwan, many patients may choose a less invasive and less expensive alternative such as dermal fillers. Dr. Edmund Kwan is well-versed in assisting patients in finding the most conservative solution for their cosmetic needs. With dermal fillers for under eyes, the idea is to soften the hollow by adding volume where it is needed. Below are the steps involved in using under eye dermal fillers:
- Diagnosis – first, patients schedule a consultation visit during which Dr. Edmund Kwan will evaluate the patient and determine if they are a good candidate for under-eye dermal fillers. Patients with more severe volume loss may still benefit more from surgery.
- Administration – Dr. Edmund Kwan then injects the hyaluronic acid dermal filler into the hollows of the eyes to achieve the desired results. The hyaluronic acid fillers add volume to smooth the area in a natural yet effective manner.
- Maintenance – facial fillers last several months before patients might need to have reinjections performed to continue to enjoy the benefits. Patients will want to schedule another appointment anywhere from four to six months after their initial injections to keep their newly refreshed appearance.
