Curing Dark Undereye Circles With Restylane Injections

Get Rid of Dark Undereye Circles Quickly and Easily

Are you tired of trying to cover up those dark circles under your eyes and want a more permanent solution?

Black smudges under your eyes make you look tired and old and covering them up with makeup may not always be possible. If you’re one of the people who have fought them for years, chances are good that you’ve wasted hundreds of dollars on products that promise to get rid of them but don’t. Now you have another option that will get rid of your dark undereye circles for up to a year.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is basically an injection of hyaluronic acid that’s FDA-approved for use as a treatment for facial wrinkles. Though the doctor in the video is using Restylane, he also states that Juvaderm, another injectable filler, may be used. To learn about the differences in these products, check out our article, Restylane Vs. Juvaderm.

The Procedure

There are many things that cause dark shadows or smudges under your eyes, including hyperpigmentation, thin skin, or allergies. Makeup is typically the easiest way to cover dark circles, but its a temporary band-aid that you’ll need to fix throughout the day. Another cause of dark undereye circles is underdeveloped tissue under and around your eye. In this case, simply injecting some filler may “fluff out” your tissue and fill in that hollow spot.

The doctor will inject a filler into your tear trough area right along and on top of your orbital bone. It will take several small, bone-deep injections but the Restylane contains the anesthetic lidocaine, so after the first couple of pokes, the discomfort should be greatly reduced or eliminated. In order to get the correct effect, the doctor says that the injections must be right on top of the bone and injected away from your eye. He should smooth them with his fingers as he goes.

Side Effects

Because your eye area has a large amount of veins, you may experience a little more bleeding and/or bruising when you get injections for your dark undereye circles than when you get it in other areas. It won’t be much though, and some people may not have any bleeding or bruising.

How Long Will Restylane Last?

The beauty of this particular procedure is that, unlike around your mouth or in other super-mobile areas, this procedure lasts for up to a year before you’ll need to get another treatment. Another good thing is that Restylane tends to actually last longer each time that you get it because it’s hyaluronic acid instead of toxin that gets slowly absorbed.

If you’re lucky, you may not have to look at those bags under your eyes for a full year or more, unlesd you’re having so much fun looking young and refreshed that you start losing sleep!

This is an easy procedure that can be done without missing work, unless you have some bruising. Even in that case, it will most likely be so slight that you can just cover it up with makeup. At any rate, your dark undereye circles will be gone and you can enjoy looking young and refreshed again without piling on the makeup to cover up those smudges. That sounds WAY worth a few hundred bucks to me.

    I stupidly had this treatment done twice. Pretty awful results – lumpy skin under eye which took about 8 weeks to subside by which time I was back to square one. A few v dark bruises – 3-4 weeks to go. Looked like I’d been on the wrong end of a fight. It is said that matters have improved but I suggest you check carefully exactly what under-eye problem fillers are said to be able to assist with and if your issue is not specified then avoid. And avoid in any case!! When I had sculptra the injections got fairly close to orbital bone and created a vivid line of broken veins on raised flesh which is still there 10 years later. No surgeon knows what it is nor how to get rid of it. Perhaps I should go to places where they know what the hell they’re doing!!
