What is Restylane Under the Eyes? A Comprehensive Guide

Restylane-L is the best under-eye filler on the market, offering FDA-approved results that subtly change the way you look. Age-related volume loss in the tear canal area can create shadows under the eyes, and Restylane is able to create fullness in and around the injection site to reduce the appearance of gaps or darkness. To achieve total rejuvenation of the eye area, many patients combine under-eye rejuvenation with volume restoration of the cheeks or midface with Restylane Lyft. Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that is an optimal fit for treating and correcting dark circles and gaps under the eyes.

It offers a minimally invasive temporary option to restore youthful volume and softness to the skin around the eyes. This treatment produces an effective and cost-effective alternative for patients with aversion to surgery. At LidLift, world-renowned surgeon Dr. offers the best Restylane treatments.

Patients may experience 30-40 hours of mild swelling after treatment, but this can usually be hidden with camouflage makeup. The incidence of bruising is around 20%, and a black eye is around 2%. It may take 2 to 3 weeks for black eyes to fully resolve. There are many different varieties of HA gel fillers on the market, including Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero.

Restylane is popular for under the eyes because it is very forgiving for the injector, but it does not provide a great lift if there is a deep tear. Juvederm Volbella and Vollure (also known as Volift outside the United States) are newer fillers within the Juvderm family that cause less swelling than previous varieties, making them good choices for superficial (Volbella) and deeper (Vollure) injections under the eyes. Refyne has not demonstrated any benefit over normal Restylane for the area under the eyes. At Pure Bliss Med Spa, Restylane is the filling of choice due to its effectiveness at adding volume under the eye area with minimal swelling and bruising compared to other fillers.

It is also less viscous than some fillers, so the possibility of lumps and irregularities decreases. Restylane is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that draws water into the area, filling it naturally and allowing it to bond to surrounding tissue for a soft, natural look and feel. After completing a Restylane treatment, patients can enjoy results for six to nine months. It is important to note that Restylane fillers contain lidocaine for convenience, so patients with specific allergies may be better adapted to other options.
