Is Under-Eye Filler Reversible?
An under-eye filler is an injectable treatment intended to eliminate dark circles and add volume to sunken eye bags. This procedure will leave you with a youthful appearance, but like any cosmetic treatment, there are some risks and complications, so this is what to expect if you’re thinking about getting it done.
Most doctors inject hyaluronic acid-based filler, a substance naturally found in the body, because it’s “safe and effective and can be dissolved easily,” according to cosmetic nurse Kristina Kitsos. An under-eye filler treatment usually takes 30 minutes and you’ll see results in one to two weeks which might serve you anywhere from six to 18 months.
While under-eye fillers are generally safe, it's not without downsides and is not meant for everyone, so complications should be discussed with your doctor before the procedure. Hyaluronic acid-based filler can be reversed using hyaluronidase, but anesthesiologist Renée Moran explains, it will be an aching process and requires more than one session.
