Under-Eye Fillers – Delivered by Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai, Leading Oculoplastic Surgeon

Under-eye fillers are an effective way of restoring volume to the eye area – reducing the appearance of hollow eyes, puffy eyes and dark circles. Fillers also hydrate the skin from the inside, leading to improvements in skin quality and collagen production.

Dr Shah-Desai has over 20 years of experience in facial aesthetic treatments. As a leading oculoplastic surgeon, she is a specialist in eye rejuvenation treatments that give patients a younger, less tired-looking appearance.

Eye Filler Review
I wanted to get filler in my upper eyelid area, but there are very, very few doctors who will do it. Knowing that it is a very tricky area to fill, I searched specifically for an oculoplastic surgeon--an eye expert. I would not trust anyone else to put filler around my eye area. I found Dr. Sabrina Shah-Desai and decided to go to her as she had so many great reviews on Real Self.I'm especially happy that I was able to find a competent filler who could fix my upper eyes. I had really bad asymmetry in the upper eye area that I thought could never be improved--it was only recently that I discovered that fillers in the upper eye could address this. My asymmetry is greatly improved and I will definitely be going back for more when needed--which is not for a while as filler tends to last a while in this area. TL;DR-- Restylane is awesome! But don't go for some Groupon deal or to a high-street ``health spa``, go to a doctor who is proficient in using fillers!

Under-Eye Fillers for Treating Dark Circles, Puffy Eyes, Superior Sulcus and Temple Hollows

Most patients presenting with a lower eye-bag, dark circle or a loss of volume in the area below the eye, have an unmasking of the “tear trough”. Dr Shah-Desai carefully layers Restylane and Emervel products to successfully improve the problem. She has pioneered a filler treatment (Eye-Boost), to rejuvenate the thin lower eyelid skin, which can worsen the illusion of under-eye shadows.

Dr Shah-Desai also treats superior sulcus, forehead/eyebrow and temple hollows, to rejuvenate the periorbital area.

Perfect for under-eye dark circles, puffy eyes and cheek hollows, this is popular among actors, actresses, and “yummy mummies”.

What are the different fillers?

Fillers can be permanent non autologous (eg Sculptra, Aquamid, Ellanse) or autologous (eg fat) or temporary (eg Restylane,  Juverderm, Belotero, Teosyal).

Restylane is the number one selling hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler and the most-studied cosmetic filler in the world. Restylane, Juverderm, Belotero are FDA approved, whilst Teosyal & Emervel are CE marked.

I prefer using hyaluronic acid fillers, as they are relatively safe, with immediate results and almost no downtime. These fillers are not of animal or human origin, therefore a skin test is not needed and you can have the HA treatments performed immediately. HA fillers are biodegradable which means that they are gradually absorbed as the gel breaks down and water takes its place. When totally absorbed, the HA gel disappears unnoticed from the body. How long a HA filler treatment holds its effect is very individual but can last from 6-18 months. This depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, lifestyle, and muscle activity, as well as on product injected.

Eye Fillers. What to expect…

The injections are usually painless and invisible. When treating wrinkles the filler is injected under the skin, for volume loss it can be injected on the bone or deep in soft tissue, in tiny aliquots, with a very thin needle or cannula.

HA fillers are biodegradable which means that they will gradually be absorbed as the gel breaks down, water takes its place. When totally absorbed, the HA gel disappears unnoticed from the body. These injections give natural volume and a typical treatment takes about 10-15 minutes and the results can be seen immediately

There can be associated swelling and bruising, which settles in a few days.

Men vs Women

Men usually prefer to retain their craggy facial appearance and tend to require less volumization but deeper lifting, specially concentrating on their cheeks and under-eye area.

Most women like to have a more smooth volumized appearance and prefer focussing on eyes and lips with gentle pan facial rejuvenation.
