Does the skin below your eyes differ in colour and texture from the rest of your face? More often than not, the eyes get strained regularly due to UV exposure from gadgets, and the sun if you’re stepping out. Hence, the under eye area becomes dark and hollow, making it tricky to treat. Moreover, as you age, lines and wrinkles start to follow worsening the appearance of this region.
If you’ve consulted friends, family or even a Bodycraft Clinic near you, you might have come across a common suggestion – the under eye filler.
About Under Eye Fillers
Also known as tear-trough filler, this under eye filler procedure helps to lighten the under-eye area, making it bright and plump. With the benefits of under eye fillers, you can look your natural, youthful self in just a few sessions.
Gel-like fillers are injected into the demarcated areas under your eyes to diffuse your dark circles. Additionally, the hollow tear troughs are restored making them appear more lively than before. This gives the appearance of even-toned under eyes in no time.

Types Of Under Eye Fillers
Your aesthetician will be able to determine which type of fillers for dark circles will be most suitable for you. The under eye treatment consists of the below-mentioned filler types-
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers:
While hyaluronic acid is naturally made by the body, fillers of the same substance mimic the composition via a synthetic gel. They help in boosting the collagen production in the skin and are a quick way of making your tear troughs look radiant.
- They are transparent and easy to apply by an aesthetician.
- They look natural and can easily be removed in case of irritation.
They do not last long.
Poly-L Lactic Acid Fillers:
This filler is usually biocompactic and synthetic, applied through a linear threading procedure into the tear troughs or hollows of the under eye region.
- It boosts collagen production in the skin rapidly.
- It lasts longer than hyaluronic acid fillers.
- It is thicker than hyaluronic acid.
- It might cause lumping under the skin.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers:
This filler is made from a mixture of phosphate and calcium. It boosts collagen production under the skin making the under eye region look more shapely.
- It boosts collagen production almost instantly.
- It lasts longer than hyaluronic acid.
- It might cause lumping in a few instances.
If you have a very deep tear trough almost connecting to your cheek, your aesthetician might be prompted to utilise fat cells from your hips, buttocks or abdomen to fill the under eye region.
- This filler-type lasts the longest.
- It doesn’t cause any chemical reactions since it’s a simple fat transfer and is hence not harmful to the face and body.
- It requires liposuction and a longer downtime.
- For smokers and alcoholics, this type of filler is not recommended.

Factors To Keep In Mind Before Getting An Under Eye Filler
While under eye fillers do help in reducing the intensity of your dark circles and hollow tear troughs, they are not suitable for curing every eye issue and may cause under eye filler side effects. While consulting our experts at any Bodycraft clinic, you will be acquainted with the following factors before undergoing the under eye treatment.
#1 Are you a good candidate for an under eye filler?
If your under eye area is darker than the rest of your face, it may be caused due to the following reasons,
- Inadequate sleep
- Poor diet
- Genetic disposition
- Less or more pigment in the area
While ageing appears to be more common in men and women, most people who fit in the above-mentioned criteria can undergo this treatment. However, if your hollow troughs are a result of excessive smoking or vaping, your Bodycraft cosmetologist might caution you about the under eye filler side effects.
