Juvederm Injections Under The Eyes

Juvederm is one of my favorite fillers.  Juvederm Ultra Plus is great for the nasolabial folds and lips.  I use Juvederm Voluma for enhancing the cheeks.  Juvederm Vollure is a soft filler that works great for the lips as well.

One very helpful feature of Juvederm Ultra Plus is its ability to absorb moisture, and actually slightly plump up with time.  This same feature that makes it great for the lips make it not so good for the under eyes.

Undereye filler is a very effective way to fill in hollowing under the eyes. This can occur due to genetics and the aging process.  Because the skin and soft tissues in this area are very thin, it has a high rate of lumpiness.  Therefore, any fillers injected here must be injected right above the bone (as deep to the skin as possible) and in very tiny amounts for optimal smoothness.

Juvederm Ultra Plus absorbs moisture, and therefore gives it a higher risk of lumps when injected under the eyes.  For this reason, Juvederm Injections Under the Eyes is on my Holistic Beauty Blacklist.
