Stopping the hands of time often requires an intervention of some sort, be it a surgical or a nonsurgical procedure. With so many different age-reversing options available these days, cost, downtime and your threshold for discomfort are all determining factors in which path you should take to correct your concerns. “In younger patients, less invasive procedures are a nice alternative because often there’s not as much of a need for correction,” says Orange County, CA, facial plastic surgeon Cory Yeh, MD.
“When it comes to using fillers in the under-eye area, it’s important to understand that they have a role—mainly for camouflaging concerns like hollows. Fillers and fat may not address underlying problems, but they can make the eyes look better when done right,” says Dr. Cory Yeh. Hyaluronic acid injectables, particularly Restylane and Juvéderm, as well as fat, give the most natural looking result.
