Under Eye | Luz MediSpa in Somers, NY

If you are considering under-eye interventions, it is essential to understand how long their results last. Under-eye interventions are cosmetic procedures used to improve the appearance of the under-eye area. This area is prone to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging, making you look tired and aged. Below, we’ll discuss the types of under-eye interventions, how they work, and the factors that affect their longevity.

Types of Under-Eye Interventions

There are different types of under-eye interventions, including surgical and non-surgical procedures. Surgical interventions include blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, which removes extra skin and fat from the eyelids. Non-surgical interventions include injectable fillers, which plump up the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid fillers are the under-eye intervention used at Luz Medispa for under-eye rejuvenation. They are a natural substance in the body that helps hydrate and plump up the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of the under-eye area.

How do under-eye interventions work?

Under-eye interventions refer to various cosmetic procedures addressing aesthetic concerns in the under-eye area. Some of the most common problems include under-eye bags, wrinkles, fine lines, and dark circles. While some interventions may involve surgical procedures, others may consist of injectables.

One popular type of under-eye intervention involves the use of injectable fillers. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps hydrate and plump the skin. During your consultation, we will add volume and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines by injecting fillers into the under-eye area.

It’s worth noting that the specific under-eye intervention that’s best for you will depend on various factors, including your anatomy, skin type, and aesthetic goals. If you’re considering an under-eye intervention, it’s essential to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner to discuss your options and develop a treatment plan that’s tailored to your unique needs.

What are the factors that affect the longevity of under-eye interventions?

The longevity of under-eye interventions depends on various factors, including the type of intervention, age, lifestyle, and genetics. The non-surgical under-eye interventions have a shorter lifespan, usually six to eighteen months.

Age, lifestyle, and genetics can affect the longevity of under-eye interventions. Our skin loses elasticity and collagen as we age, making it more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Smoking, sun exposure, and poor diet can also affect the skin’s health, making it more prone to wrinkles and sagging. Genetics can also play a role in how long the results of under-eye interventions last.

How Long Do Under Eye Fillers Last?

The longevity of under-eye fillers depends on several factors, including the type of filler used, the individual’s metabolism, the location of the injection, and the amount of filler injected. Hyaluronic acid fillers typically last six to eighteen months in the under-eye region.

The under-eye area is susceptible, and the skin is thin and delicate, so the filler’s placement is crucial. If the stuffing is placed too superficially, it may cause visible bumps or lumps under the skin or lead to the Tyndall effect, which causes a bluish discoloration under the skin. On the other hand, if the filler is injected too deep, it may not effectively address the under-eye concerns.

It’s also essential to note that the body naturally metabolizes hyaluronic acid over time, which can affect the filler’s longevity. The individual’s lifestyle habits, such as smoking, sun exposure, and stress, can also impact the filler’s lifespan.

Ultimately, the duration of under-eye fillers will vary from person to person, and it’s important to discuss your goals and expectations with a qualified and experienced practitioner to determine if this treatment is proper for you. Your provider can also recommend a maintenance schedule to help you maintain optimal results over time.

How can you extend the life of under-eye interventions?

Patients often seek ways to extend the life of their results. The following advice can help you develop the effectiveness of your under-eye intervention:

  • Follow the aftercare instructions: After the procedure, we will give you specific aftercare instructions, which may include avoiding certain activities, applying ice packs, or using particular products. It’s essential to follow these instructions to ensure that you heal properly and maximize the longevity of your results.
  • Protect your skin from the sun: Sun exposure can cause premature aging and damage to the skin, reducing the effectiveness of your under-eye intervention. Using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoiding extended sun exposure, especially during peak hours, are vital for protecting your skin from the sun.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle: Your lifestyle habits can affect the longevity of your under-eye intervention. A balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats can help nourish your skin and improve overall health. Drinking plenty of water can also help keep your skin hydrated and plump. Additionally, avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can help minimize the effects of aging on your skin.
  • Consider maintenance treatments: We may recommend maintenance treatments to help extend the life of your results.

It’s essential to remember that the longevity of your under-eye intervention will depend on several factors, including the type of intervention, your skin type, and your aging process. By following these tips and working closely with us as your provider, you can help maximize the results of your under-eye intervention and enjoy a more youthful, refreshed appearance for as long as possible.
