Dermal Filler for Under Eyes

Dermal filler or tear trough filler,  is a popular treatment option for dark circles around the eyes. Dermal filler helps fill in under-eye hollows that naturally occur with age, making them appear less prominent. This is an effective treatment that can last up to 18 months and can soften the dark shadows by filling in the lost volume under the eye. However, it is important to note that this type of treatment does come with risks such as bruising and swelling. It is also important to find a qualified doctor or nurse who has experience performing this type of procedure.

How to book in for tear trough fillers:

Commonly called tear drop treatment by patients, this procedure is a quick 15-20 minute outpatient procedure at VIVA. To start your tear trough treatment journey simply click to book here or call our front desk to have a free face to face consultation. We only use Juvederm Volbella for under eye filler to ensure soft natural results that do not cause overfilling in this area to prevent “sausage roll” appearance under the eye from overfilling with fillers.


Hydrafacial For Reducing Pigment

Another popular option for reducing dark circles is the Hydrafacial. This facial uses powerful exfoliation techniques combined with serums containing antioxidants and hydrating ingredients that help reduce pigment around the eyes and strengthen skin elastin. This technique can help lighten dark circles while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It’s an excellent choice if you’re looking for an all-in-one solution for treating your dark circles but do not want to undergo surgery or needles. Hydrafacial can be tailored to your specific needs and is a favorite with our doctors and nurses as a maintance treatment to ward off tired eyes with out going under the needle.



Laser Treatments That Minimise Dark Circles

Laser treatments are another great option for reducing dark circles under your eyes. Lasers can target melanin pigmentation in your skin and break it down, leaving behind a brighter complexion overall. Laser treatments are ideal if you want long-term results without any downtime or discomfort from other procedures like dermal fillers. However, it is important to note that laser treatments for pigment near the eye can be quite complex compared to other options so be sure to consult your doctor first before making any decisions on which treatment might be best for you!



Skin Lightening Skincare To Brighten And Lighten Dark Circles

Finally, skin lightening skincare products are another great way to reduce the appearance of dark circles around your eyes. These products use ingredients such as kojic acid and niacinamide which inhibit melanin production and help brighten dull complexions caused by hyperpigmentation or sun damage. Skin lightening skincare products are a great choice if you’re looking for something more affordable than laser treatments or if you simply want a more natural approach when tackling your dark circles. Obagi medical nu-derm kit is an excellent choice for heavy melasma and pigment with 4% hydroquinone to tackle permanent pigment- this can be used close to the under eyes to help lighten and brighten the eyes.


What Treatment is right for me?

As we’ve seen, there are various treatments available today that can help minimize the appearance of dark circles under your eyes in 2023. From dermal fillers and laser treatments to skin lightening skincare products – there’s an option out there perfect for everyone’s needs and budget! Additionally, it’s important not only to consider medical treatments but also lifestyle factors such as stress levels, lack of sleep, dehydration and diet when trying to prevent and management dark undereye circles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We recommend Juvederm Volbella for under eye filler. The Juvederm range is FDA approved clinically for under the eyes.  Our doctors and nurses specialise in high risk procedures and full face fillers at VIVA.

Unfortunately there is not a 100% effect treatment for dark circles and may need a combination of treatment options to tackle pigment and loss of volume under the eyes such as fillers and medical grade skincare. With combination treatment, results are maximized for best patient outcomes.

We recommend a combination of both, depending on the area of the under eye and the desired look fo the patient. Filler will help with lost volume (hollowing) and Botox will help soften the fine lines and wrinkles as well as opening the eye for a brigher more awake appearance.
