Juvederm is a popular choice for those looking to rejuvenate the area under their eyes. It is a hyaluronic acid (HA) gel filler that can be used to fill in deep gaps and give the area a smoother appearance. There are many different varieties of HA gel fillers, including the Restylane family, the Juvederm family, and Belotero. Voluma is a common choice for those with deep gaps in the under-eye area.
By correcting the volume loss of half of the face, Voluma can indirectly improve the hollows under the eyes. However, it does not provide a great lift if there is a deep tear. Volbella and Vollure (also known as Volift) are newer fillers within the Juvderm family. They are softer than other Juvederm products and cause less swelling, making them good choices for superficial (Volbella) and deeper (Vollure) injections under the eyes.
However, there have been reports of inflammatory nodules (bumps) after 4 months with Volbella. Refyne is a different type of cross-linking than regular Restylane, making it more “flexible” and beneficial in areas with a lot of facial movement (especially around the mouth). However, there has been no benefit demonstrated over regular Restylane for the under-eye area. Restylane is thinner and softer than other fillers, but it also has the highest swelling capacity.
This makes it not the best option when it comes to thin skin under the eyes, which doesn't cope well with significant swelling. When given to the eye area, Volbella may last longer than expected. Many patients saw an improved appearance in the area for a year or more. The most common types of hyaluronic acid fillers include Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero.
They are especially beneficial if this is your first time putting fillers under your eyes, as they can be reversed if you are not satisfied with the results or experience a complication. Juvederm offers more pronounced results than other fillers and has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. It also lasts a little longer than Restylane, with some patients enjoying their results for a year or longer. The choice of Juvederm filler depends on the degree of voids under the eyes in the tear canal area and the laxity of the skin.
Depending on the patient's needs, 1-2 Juvederm syringes will be needed in the tear canal area to complete the treatment. Juvederm injection under the eyes usually lasts between nine months and a full year, although results vary from patient to patient. It is an advanced injection technique and proper patient selection and technique are critical to its success. If you're looking for an under eye solution, consider Juvederm injections as they offer many benefits over other fillers.
Juvederm is considered a tear filler and is suitable for any patient 21 and older who wants to rejuvenate their eyes.
