What’s the Best Under Eye Filler?

If you suffer from dark circles, bags, and volume loss under your eyes, dermal fillers can offer a safe, effective, and nonsurgical solution.

But with an ever-increasing number of fillers to choose from, many patients aren’t sure which product is ideal for this delicate part of the face. As a result, they often ask: What’s the best under eye filler?

To learn which type of filler works best for tear trough correction and the benefits of specific products, read on.

What’s the Best Under Eye Filler?

The best under eye filler is one whose main ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in skin and joints and readily attracts water to fill in tear troughs.

Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero are among the top hyaluronic acid fillers for dark circles and under eye bags. So, what makes each of these products ideal for injection under the eyes?

Restylane is an excellent option for tear trough correction thanks to its smooth application, durability, and low propensity for swelling.

Juvederm is another injectable to consider if you are interested in rejuvenating your eyes. While Volbella has a softer composition that’s best-suited to more shallow tear trough injections, Vollure performs well for deeper injections.

Belotero is another hyaluronic acid injectable that’s often injected under the eyes. In fact, many providers appreciate its forgiving nature and note that it’s unlikely to clump or cause discoloration.

Is Under Eye Filler Reversible?

When it comes to choosing the best under eye filler, hyaluronic acid based products are especially popular because they can be removed.

In fact, an enzyme called hyaluronidase can be injected to fully or partially dissolve a HA filler in the event of unforeseen lumps, bumps, or discoloration.

Which Fillers Are Not Recommended Under the Eyes?

Most injectors refrain from using permanent and semi-permanent filler under the eyes. These include Sculptra, Bellafill, and Radiesse.
