Help for under-eye circles

By: Dr. John Curry, May 22, 2014
  Question

I have circles under my eyes; is there anything that I can do to hide them? They make me look tired.

To reverse the signs of these aging processes we need to address the loss of volume and improve the thinning of the skin below the eye.

I would need to see you first to determine if your eye circles are treatable; however, generally this concern can be treated.

There are a couple of processes that determine the likelihood of under-eye circles.  As we age, the fat pad beneath the eye descends, the skin in that area thins, and the eye socket enlarges as we loose density in the bone of the skull.  Hence, a sunken, tired look to the eye is reflected.

To reverse the signs of these aging processes; we need to address the loss of volume and improve the thinning of the skin below the eye. However, there are a couple of factors we have to keep in mind; a filler to replace the volume loss would need to be thin and easily injected into this area so as not to over-correct.  Also, we need to inject with an instrument that will not injure the eye ball; hence, I use a cannula.

The filler product I use in this area is Redensity ii as I find this product is cross linked fine enough so as not to overfill.  Also, Redensity has a dermo-restructuring complex of aminoacids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to improve the texture and tone of the under-eye skin.

The results are very effective and can last for approximately twelve months.
