Dermal Filler for Tear Trough

Dermal Filler for Eye Trough

Several of the hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers we offer can be used for treating under-eye circles caused by a hollow along the tear trough, not caused by dark pigmentation under the eye. And dermal fillers can be used on the upper eye to artistically balance a face to make it more symmetrical.

We’re looking at you, Juvederm Volbella and Vollure, Restylane and Belotero Balance for smooth injectability into the thinner, delicate skin of the eye area as they are water-loving and less viscous than those used for the more robust areas of the face and hands. Though using these fillers for eyes is considered an “off-label use”, it doesn’t mean they are dangerous to use. We use these same products the same way for which they are FDA-approved for other areas of the face; studies have just not been submitted to the FDA yet for their stamp of approval.

These fillers typically last nine to eighteen months, but great news! Fillers in the under eye area tend to last longer than any other place.

We are often consulted by patients who have received over-filling of the eye area and have gained expertise in the corrections needed. It is possible to inject a specific enzyme which can dissolve eye filler, and while that may be comforting to know, it is important to only see experienced injectors for all dermal filler uses, and to have a consultation before committing. After examining your eye area and listening to your goals, our practitioner will recommend which of our HA fillers is best for you. (Poly-L-lactic Acid and Calcium Hydroxylapatite-based fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse should never be used around the eye.)

Precision and artistry is important in your practitioner! The goal is to inject as little of the product as possible to reach the desired results.

At home care and combo therapy can also be recommended. Products can help thicken the dermal layers around the eye. And it’s possible that one of our radio frequency or light treatments could either enhance or replace dermal fillers around the eyes.

We hope you contact us soon for a complimentary consultation.

Excellent service and an overall pleasant experience. Victoria was professional and knowledgeable. She proposed treatments addressing both my anesthetic and medical concerns.. I could not be happier with the results. Also, the Receptionist, Mattie, was pleasant and efficient. I look forward to future treatments.

Hayes Valley is the best! Kate did an incredible job with Dysport removing the wrinkles from my forehead, Sandra gave me great abs and glutes with Emsculpt, and Linda gave me my youthful facial structure back with Sculptra. These women are truly amazing. So glad that I found them!

I love Hayes Valley Medical and Esthetics! I've been coming for a while now for Botox and filler treatments. Linda is AMAZING! She knows just the right amount of product needed in all the right places to bring out my best facial features. I feel more handsome every time!!

The front desk staff are super sweet and helpful. They always ask exactly what I want and I never feel like I'm being 'upsold' or encouraged to do anything other than what I came in for. I would highly recommend HVME to anybody that is on the unsure about trying some of the services they offer. You won't be disappointed. Thank you!!

Sheila and Linda took great care of me and I look younger and vibrant.  I do not trust anyone else for injectables.  Linda is careful, thoughtful, and respectful of one’s budget. I have followed her from Marin into SF and I will continue to follow her where ever she practices.
