Frequently Asked Questions About Under Eye Fillers
How are under eye injections done?
An experienced injection specialist oversees under eye filler treatments to ensure your safety and comfort. Similar to Botox, the injections are given after treatment areas are cleansed. The procedure is done as patients lay on an exam table in a slightly raised position or sit upright.
The length of each procedure depends on the patient’s desired outcomes and the condition of treatment areas.
Will receiving the injection hurt?
Because your eyes are more sensitive, it is normal to feel some pain (typically a pinching sensation) as the needle enters you skin. Our injection specialists will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment areas in advance, and all the dermal fillers we use contain lidocaine, a medication used to numb the tissue.
Should you feel any excessive pain, tell the injection specialist.
Are there risks associated with under eye injections and fillers?
Under eye injections can cause some minor side effects including swelling, itchiness, bruising, and mild pain. Conditions should subside within the first two weeks (often within the first few days).
