Patient was always self-conscious of the bags under her eyes that made her look tired and puffy. By using Restylane with the microcannula technique, she had an instant improvement in the appearance of the dark circles around her lower eyelids. In addition, the puffiness has resolved where she no longer has to place large amounts of concealer to this region.
Procedure: Filler to undereyes
Patient presented for consultation because she wanted to reduce the appearance of her undereye bags. She was most interested in a nonsurgical alternative. Dr. Somenek recommended Restylane to be placed under her eyes which produced an instant reduction in the appearance of the undereye bags. Dr. Somenek uses microcannulas for his filler treatments to minimize bruising with almost no downtime.
Patient was dissatisfied with the appearance of her under eyes. She was mostly concerned with the bags that were present. Restylane Silk was placed under this area, providing support to the skin and masking the bag-like appearance. The blunt tip microcannula technique was used so she had no bruising and no trauma to the tissue.
Patient had Restylane Lyft placed into the midface to provide support to her cheek as well as her undereyes. This treatment helps to reduce the appearance of dark circles and pigment.
