Give Your Sunken Eyes a Boost with Dermal Fillers

Featured Image

Aging, weight loss, and genetics can all cause your eyes to take on a sunken appearance. Sunken eyes can make you look old, tired, and grumpy. Luckily, you have options to reinvigorate your appearance. Dermal fillers can give your sunken eyes a much-needed boost.

Our team approach at Beleza Surgery in The Arboretum, Cedar Park, Round Rock, and Killeen TX involves meeting with our doctors for a consultation. At the consultation, you can discuss your goals and learn about how dermal fillers can refresh your sunken eyes.

All about injectable dermal fillers

Injectable dermal fillers can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles plus revive a sunken appearance around the eyes. The thin skin beneath your eyes is susceptible to developing lines, taking on a hollow appearance, dark circles, and appearing puffy.

Your eyes are one of the first things that people notice about you. The appearance of your eyes can make you look older or tired. Rest and healthy habits such as avoiding smoking and alcohol and avoiding the sun all help your eyes look younger. However, sometimes even with the best of habits, genetics can still impact the appearance around your eye, such as the development of hollow areas.

Dermal fillers can fill in the hollow, sunken appearance around your eyes, but they will not reduce the appearance of dark circles unless the circles are the result of skin laxity. Our doctors will examine the area around your eyes to determine what cosmetic treatment will give you the best results that you seek.

Our team of doctors at Beleza Surgery in The Arboretum, Cedar Park, Round Rock, and Killeen TX will discuss your goals with you and then provide you with information about dermal fillers. Often a combination of fillers is used to achieve the best results.

Types of dermal fillers used to fill out sunken eyes include:

Hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal fillers

JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are both made up of hyaluronic acid, which provides a natural appearance. The gel-like substance is soft and will easily plump out sunken areas and smooth away wrinkles. HA fillers are extremely popular for use under the eyes.


RADIESSE is made from calcium spheres suspended in a gel base. It has a thicker consistency than HA fillers and provides immediate results upon injection. The calcium particles also work by stimulating collagen production to restore volume and smooth even deep lines around the eyes.

Dermal fillers to fill out sunken eyes

The area around your eyes is overly sensitive, and even a shallow injection with a fine needle can hurt. Our aesthetics team will apply a numbing cream to the area prior to the injections. Following dermal filler injections, you might experience slight swelling and bruising, but the side effects will fade within several days.

You’ll likely start to notice a fuller appearance around your eyes almost immediately. And the results will improve even more dramatically over several days as the dermal filler encourages the body’s natural production of collagen.

The results from dermal filler injections last about three months to a year. One of the most popular dermal fillers for under the eyes contains hyaluronic acid, which provides very natural-looking results. To maintain your appearance, you might need maintenance touch-up injections every 4 – 6 months.
