Injection cosmetology is one of the most popular methods of contour plastic surgery. Injectable drugs make up for the tissue deficit that develops over time in some parts of the face. Fillers are used to correct external defects: eliminate bags under the eyes, eliminate fine wrinkles, tighten sagging eyelids.
What are under eye fillers?
Fillers, depending on the chemical composition, are divided into:
- bioindegradable (non-absorbable);
- biodegradable (absorbable).
Bioindegradable fillers are foreign tissue for the body, and therefore they can be rejected by the body.
Such fillers are identical to human tissues and are gel preparations based on:
- stabilized hyaluronic acid.
Beauticians consider hyaluronic acid-based fillers to be the safest and most effective drugs. Due to the absence of synthetic components, they are not rejected by the skin, and after a certain time they break down and are completely eliminated from the body.
The consequences of the introduction of fillers under the eyes
Like any cosmetic manipulation, the procedure for introducing fillers under the eyes has contraindications. Filler injections should not be done:
- during pregnancy and lactation;
- in violation of blood clotting;
- with inflammation of the epidermis on the face.
Also, cosmetologists do not perform the procedure in the case when there are permanent implants in the correction zone.
Fillers under the eyes can cause a number of complications, in the form of:
- excessive pigmentation;
- vascular network;
- skin sensitivity disorders.
There are also more severe complications associated with the characteristics of the body or the quality of the drug. Including:
- tissue necrosis;
- the appearance of the drug under the skin and an unaesthetic change in the skin relief;
- fibrosis (hardening of the skin) and granulomas (nodules on the skin).
Unfortunately, the lack of professionalism of a beautician sometimes also causes serious complications. Therefore, when deciding to make fillers for dark circles under the eyes, be sure to find out the patients’ reviews about the specialist, but rather contact the beautician recommended by friends who have already undergone this procedure.
