Aesthetic Options to Refresh Tired Appearing Under Eyes

Are you dealing with tired looking under eyes? Dark circles, hollows, and puffiness under the eyes can add years to your appearance and leave you feeling less than refreshed. Fortunately, modern aesthetic medicine offers a range of effective treatments to rejuvenate the under-eye area, helping you regain a youthful, vibrant look. At PRISM Aesthetics, we understand the importance of tailored solutions for each individual's unique concerns. Let's explore some of the options available to revitalize your under eyes.

1. Tear Trough Filler:

Tear trough filler is a popular non-surgical treatment designed to address under-eye hollows. As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes can lose volume, leading to a sunken appearance. Tear trough filler, composed of hyaluronic acid, is injected beneath the eyes to replenish lost volume and smooth out hollows, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated look. This quick and minimally invasive procedure can provide immediate results with a downtime of about a week. It is important to note that the undereye area is very complex and delicate, with many lymphatics in the region that can be disturbed by dermal filler. A consultation is required before we schedule a tear trough filler appointment to review your medical history and assess the undereye region to see if you are a true candidate for this treatment. Often times, other options like PRF injections (explained below) are better for the delicate undereye region. We are proud to offer ultrasound guided injections at PRISM to make tear trough filler safer and give us the ability to map out important blood vessels to avoid when injecting. 

2. Cheek Filler:

Believe it or not, enhancing the cheeks can have a significant impact on the appearance of the under-eye area. Cheek filler injections can restore volume to the midface, lifting and supporting the tissues around the eyes. By addressing volume loss in the cheeks, this treatment can reduce the appearance of under-eye hollows and improve overall facial harmony. At PRISM Aesthetics, our experienced practitioners carefully assess each patient's facial anatomy to determine the most suitable approach for achieving natural-looking results. Typically, we recommend cheek filler before tear trough filler, to provide support to the face and give more natural looking results.

3. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF):

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy harnesses the regenerative power of your body's own platelets to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. When applied to the under-eye area, PRF can improve skin texture, tone, and elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles. Unlike traditional PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), PRF contains a higher concentration of platelets and growth factors, enhancing its regenerative effects. This holistic approach to skin rejuvenation promotes long-term improvements in skin quality, helping you achieve a radiant and youthful complexion. We typically recommend three treatments spread out every 4-6 weeks for maximal results. There is moderate to severe swelling to the undereye region for 2-5 days after these injections, so many people receiving these injections plan to do it around a time when they are ok with downtime such as the weekend. This treatment is the most effective treatment we offer for dark circles in the undereye region.

4. Radio Frequency Microneedling:

Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling combines the benefits of microneedling with the skin-tightening effects of radio frequency energy. This innovative treatment delivers controlled thermal energy deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and remodeling the underlying tissue. RF microneedling is highly effective for improving skin laxity, reducing wrinkles, and rejuvenating the under-eye area. At PRISM, we offer both Morpheus 8 and Sylfirm X as radiofrequency microneedling options. By promoting collagen synthesis, this advanced therapy can gradually enhance skin texture and firmness, diminishing the appearance of tired-looking eyes.
