Filler’s a pretty common treatment for hollowness under the eyes or even bags under the eye. It makes sense as a solution. After all, these problems tend to crop out when fat volume isn’t evened out between the cheeks and the eyes.

Too much fat in the eyes or too little, both can be noticeable.

Here are some surprising facts that could change the effectiveness of your eye filler treatment.

Believe It or Not, Surgeons May Not Be the Best Option

Surgeon is the first word that comes to mind when we think of the most skilled practitioners, but in the case of eye filler sometimes your Dermatologist may be a better choice.

When it comes to injectables, even a PA who’s performed the procedure hundreds of times will do better than a surgeon whose forte lies with the scalpel.

Cheeks May Be a Better Option Than Directly Going for the Eyes

Filling out hollowed cheeks can make a smoother gradient between your eyes and your cheeks.

For many, especially those who feel they suffer from bags under the eyes, this can give a greater bang for their buck. It’s important to have an in-depth consultation to determine what works for you personally.

The Type of Filler You Use Matters

When it comes to the cheeks, stiffer products with more support tend to be better, while a less stiff product would be used for directly under the eyes. It’s important to find an expert who can determine the best product for your aesthetic needs.

Filler doesn’t last forever, and patients who get filler of any kind have to go in for regular maintenance every six months to a year.
