Want a few tips for getting rid of the hollows under your eyes?
Many women find that as they age their face becomes less full. Our cheeks may droop and hollow out as skin becomes looser. This can add years to our face and make us look constantly tired, even when we’re full of energy. There is a solution however… a little strategically-placed filler can work wonders!
From my personal experience, I recommend most people use a cannula – not a syringe – on their tear troughs to firm and plump up the skin. A cannula is a micro-syringe with a blunt tip, meaning it will not damage nerves or blood vessels.
Occasional cannula injections of a few drops of hyaluronic acid (HA) filler (with names like Juvederm, Belotero, or Restylane) along the tear trough will take years off your face. HA is a sugar that occurs naturally in our own skin, and has been shown to stimulate increased collagen production when injected.
This procedure will definitely make your face look fuller and younger, and it can also be helpful for enhancing your facial features like your eyes, cheeks, and lips.
You may find that after a treatment small bumps may form, which can easily be smoothed away by your cosmetic injector. You may also have some minor bruising or swelling, but this should disappear within a short time.
To minimize the chances of any negative side effects, make sure you trust your practitioner. Do your research, and find someone who specializes in anti-aging treatments.
If you’re not comfortable with injections, a daily eye cream or gel can work wonders too. One of my favorites is Skinbetter’s InterFuse Eye Cream. It is very hydrating and soft. It also contains Vitamin-C, which provides antioxidant and skin brightening benefits.
Interfuse relieves the look of under-eye puffiness through a blend of caffeine and a highly specialized yeast derivative and diminishes dryness and locks in moisture with a blend of humectants. I absolutely LOVE this product!
