How Do Under Eye Fillers Work?

It is obvious what under eye fillers do—fill in the areas under your eyes that have become thinner and don’t look as plump as they once did. But how exactly do these fillers work? Sometimes, it can seem scary or unnatural to think about placing something foreign into your skin. However, products like Restylane are formulated to act like the body’s naturally produced fillers.

How do under eye fillers work?

What is the Tear Trough?

As we age, our skin becomes thinner and less full due to both internal and external factors. Whether we blame our skin aging on genetics or sun exposure, the skin we once had has changed. This change can be attributed to diminishing hyaluronic acid. A common area on the face that is affected by this aging is the tear trough, otherwise known as the ‘bags’ underneath our eyes.

Hyaluronic Acid: The Key Under Eye Filling Ingredient

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin that helps maintain elasticity and fullness. However, as we age we produce less hyaluronic acid, leaving our skin to develop wrinkles and folds.

The good news is products like Restylane are created with a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. This means the under eye filler is only replenishing your skin’s natural composition.
