Reverse Sunken Eyes

What are Under Eye Hollows?

The skin under and around the eyes is more fragile and softer than the rest of the face. As a result, this area is more susceptible to a plethora of problems, one of them being under-eye hollows, also commonly referred to as sunken eyes. While the exact appearance may differ from person to person, under-eye hollows tend to have one or several of the following characteristics:

  • an indentation under the eyes
  • frail-looking and translucent skin under the eyes
  • shadow over lower eyelids
  • constant fatigued look on the face
  • Droopy upper eyelid

All these traits o pose a major aesthetic concern for many people, often making them feel self-conscious and unhappy when they look into the mirror.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Causes Sunken Eyes/ Under Eye Hollows?

Here are the most likely causes of sunken eyes:

  • Ageing- Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and plays a role in strengthening the skin. Yet as the body ages, the skin tends to lose collagen. The first place where this loss in collagen is most noticeable is the skin under the eyes. This is because, with the resulting loss in skin volume, the eyes settle back into the eye socket, making them appear sunken.
  • Lifestyle habits such as overexposure to sunlight, smoking, vitamin deficiencies, dehydration and poor sleep degrade the skin's quality and can contribute to the appearance of under eye hollows.
  • Medical conditions- allergies, sinus infections, and trauma to the face are known to cause the eyes to appear sunken. That's why you should keep an eye out for additional symptoms that may signal an underlying health problem. But in most cases, sunken eyes are not related to life-threatening conditions.

Can I Reverse The Appearance of Sunken Eyes?

Sunken eyes resulting from medical conditions can be treated with prescription medicine from your general practitioner. Changes in lifestyle habits such as eating a balanced diet, using sunscreen, maintaining a regular sleep schedule and skincare routine can also help. Though these changes may result in an improvement, they may fail to reverse the sunken eyes' appearance completely.

That's why we also recommend the next treatment option—hyaluronic acid filler treatment. Especially when the under eye hollows are caused by volume loss due to ageing. The filler we use is exceptionally malleable, allowing it to be well accommodated under the super-thin under-eye skin. Often a filler treatment will make the difference between looking exhausted and refreshed in a way no concealer can match.

What Do I Need to Know About the Filler Treatment for Sunken Eyes?

The area under your eyes is incredibly delicate and full of blood vessels, and the treatment should only be carried out by a qualified and experienced aesthetics doctor. The procedure itself involves injecting small amounts of Hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler under the eyes using a very fine micro-cannula. Unlike a typical syringe, a micro-cannula has a blunt end, significantly reducing the risk of injuring the skin. Other than a pricky sensation, this procedure is painless.

However, we do offer the option of using a topical anaesthetic. We appreciate that every patient is unique both in their skin anatomy and expectation. Therefore instead of a cookie-cutter approach, we offer a bespoke treatment plan to each individual patient that walks into our clinic. And not to forget, the procedure only takes 30 minutes! So you can be in and out over a lunch break.

Is Hyaluronic Acid Filler Safe?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body, making it hypoallergenic. It also has a long track record of safety and a low overall incidence of side effects due to long term use. In fact, Hyaluronic acid fillers have been shown to support collagen production in the skin.

Another benefit of using a hyaluronic acid filler is that if the need arises, the procedure can be reversed. The hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved with the enzyme hyaluronidase for complete reversal and safe absorption by the body.
