        How can cosmetic treatments help eye rejuvenation?

        Volumizers are invaluable in eye rejuvenation, especially for more mature skin. The right volumizing treatment used beneath the eyes can instantly provide natural facial rejuvenation. Volumizers can reduce unsightly, sunken, or dark circles caused by loss of volume in the undereye area. This helps correct the appearance of “tired eyes”.

        Volumizers around the eyes can also provide structural support to the lid cheek junction, & create smooth transitions from the temple, eyebrow to the lower eyelid. 

        Who are candidates for tear trough volumizers?

        Volumizing treatments can be the correct treatment if you meet certain criteria-

        • Mild to moderate laxity under the eyes
        • Moderate to thick dermis 
        • Volume deficiency under the eyes
        • Realistic expectations of what fillers can achieve

        For those who aren’t candidates for this treatment, there are other options to address the under-eye area, such as laser treatments or surgery.

        How do I know if I am a candidate for volumizers?

        The best approach is a personalized & custom-tailored one.

        What are tear trough volumizers?

        Tear trough fillers are injectable gels that are precisely placed under the skin to provide volume & smooth away dark circles, shadows & wrinkles. The filler is made of hyaluronic acid which is a gel-like substance that naturally exists in your body. 


        Hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin, giving the skin a youthful, healthy look. When injected into the under-eye areas, hyaluronic acid-based volumizers increase fullness, correct volume loss & minimize shadows.

        What types of volumizers do we use?

        Cutis Dermatology has a curated variety of volumizers from several different companies. This ensures we have the best selection of hyaluronic acid volumizing agents from each company, as they all have different properties. 


        Based on hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body, a volumizer is a clear gel that is injected into the facial area for the purpose of smoothing the appearance of wrinkles, replacing volume loss & reducing the appearance of shadows. 


        Our dermatologists also perform complex cases of eye treatments including the use of collagen stimulating calcium hydroxyapatite.

        What are the side effects of volumizers in this area?

        Yes, volumizers are very safe: The gel injected into your skin is biodegradable, allowing it to break down and become absorbed into the skin naturally. Complications can arise, these are rare and will be discussed with you prior to the procedure. In the eye area the most common side effects include-

        • Bruising
        • Lumpy uneven areas
        • Tyndall or blueing of area

        Dermal fillers can markedly improve the periocular area, replenishing loss volume & collagen. Our specialists have over 15 years experience in the use of both hyaluronic acid as well as collagen stimulating dermal fillers. 

        Can volumizers get rid of dark circles?

        Volumizerscan help treat some cases. Most cases of dark circles are multifactorial including changes in volume, pigmentation, vascularity & more. Volumizers only address one aspect, namely volume. 


        The most common treatment we use is hyaluronic acid, however for complex cases of thin skin & dark circles our dermatologists use a special dilution of collagen stimulating treatments known as calcium hydroxyapatite.

        What’s the recovery following under eye volumizing?

        The brilliant thing about treatments with volumizers & tear trough cosmetic treatments is that there is no downtime afterwards. With our technique using blunt-tipped micro cannulas, you will not likely have any bruising—however, the following morning you will experience swelling under and around the eyes.

        How long do dermal volumizers last?

        Hyaluronic acid volumizers around the eye last a long time, well beyond the 12 months advertised by clinics & cosmetic companies.


        MRI scans show that volumizers can last 3 to 5 years & often beyond. On this basis we encourage under correction of the eye area. Read more to understand.

        What is the concept of under filling the eye area, & why is this important?

        Specialists know that under eye volumizers last well beyond their advertised lifespan. We know this because we have been filling since 2006, & we deal with cosmetic treatment complications from all around Queensland. Volumizers are visible on MRI scans many years later. 


        We underfill the eye area because we know that over time, volumizers can migrate, & or take up more water to the area. This means in some cases; your filler looks better 2-3 years down the road.

        Do lasers melt volumizers under the eye?

        No, lasers & energy devices do not melt dermal fillers. This is because fillers are stable at temperatures exceeding 100 degrees for many minutes. Hence if we refer you for lasers, you can be assured that your under-eye filler is stable. 

        What to consider when considering fillers in the under-eye area?

        It’s a big investment that you want to get right- from the start. Consider-



        • Experience of your injector. Is filling the correct thing for your concerns?
        • The filler types. What selection, & why?
        • Your expectations. Do you want & immediate results or prefer slower results over time?

        It’s more than the undereye area. Consider brows, temples, mid cheek & transitions. This provides the most natural result.
