Sunken eyes and dark circles afflict many individuals as they age, although many young people suffer from dark circles, as well. These maladies can make an individual look tired, sickly and unhealthy, even when they are in good health. This condition can affect an individual’s interpersonal relationships, business opportunities, and self esteem.
There are two basic options to correct these conditions. The first is a surgical procedure known as a blepharoplasty. In 2007, 241,000 Americans underwent a
blepharoplasty.1 Blepharoplasty is the third most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in America. For some individuals, blepharoplasty surgery might be the only solution. For others, specific dermal fillers and BOTOX®, precisely placed, is a non-surgical alternative.
FDA-approved advanced dermal fillers are used by thousands of medical practitioners to successfully contour facial features, non-surgically. Healthcare professionals
treat these conditions using advanced dermal fillers, such as Juvederm® Ultra, Juvederm® Ultra Plus, Radiesse®, Restylane®, Perlane®, and Sculptra®.
The advanced dermal fillers are generally placed in an area below the lower rim of the eye or in the area of the cheeks to treat sunken eyes and dark circles. Each of the dermal fillers works differently to achieve the look you desire. In general, they each provide some combination of filling the sunken area with a natural substance found in the body and stimulate your body to produce more collagen. Results can be astonishing and well worth the investment.
For best results, it is suggested that you go to a healthcare professional who is experienced in treatment of dark circles and sunken eyes, as well as other treatments near the eyes. A medical practitioner who is more experienced in these procedures will be far more likely to achieve better, more pleasing and enduring results, which means you are getting more for your money.
It is advisable to select a healthcare professional who has performed at least hundreds of dermal filler procedures because techniques are often refined over time. Experienced practitioners will be more likely to optimize your results and give you more natural, appealing results.
