How Long Do Under Eye Fillers Last
Have you looked in the mirror and noticed tired, droopy eyes? Eye fillers may be a good solution. However, you may have some questions. Like what are under eye fillers? How much does it cost and how long do under eye fillers last? Here’s a quick guide to get you started!
Under Eye Fillers
Under eye fillers are used to lighten the tear trough and make the area appear plumper and brighter. Reducing these dark shadows can make you look well rested and younger. There are many types of fillers. These include:
Pros and Cons of Under Eye Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is one of the popular choices. It is transparent and easy for the practitioner to smooth during treatment. HA gives natural looking results. But it produces the shortest results of any filler.
Poly-L-lactic acid creates a drastic increase in collagen production, and it dissipates within days, but results last longer than HA fillers. One disadvantage is that it is thicker than HA and might cause lumps under the skin in some cases.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is thicker than other fillers and harder to smooth out but creates longer lasting results than other fillers. Some providers feel that this filler gives a too-white appearance.
How Long Do Under Eye Fillers Last?
Your body absorbs fillers over time, so your results won’t be permanent. Hyaluronic acid filler typically lasts between 9-12 months. Calcium hydroxylapatite lasts between 12-18 months and Poly-L-lactic acid fillers can last up to two years.
How Much Does It Cost?
Under eye filler is considered a cosmetic procedure, so it is not usually covered by any health insurance. Costs will vary widely depending on several factors like where you are located, which filler you choose, and how much you require. Typically, undereye filler ranges between $600-$1,600 per syringe for a cost of up to $3,000 for both eyes.
