Restylane® Eyelight: A New Solution for Undereye Hollows and Dark Circles

Picture this: you wake up one morning, look in the mirror, and suddenly notice those dark circles and hollow shadows beneath your eyes. You think to yourself, “When did I start looking so tired and old?” It’s frustrating, knowing that despite your best efforts to maintain your skin health, your eyes seem to betray your age and energy levels.

Sound familiar? If so, you’re not alone. Countless people struggle with the same concerns, wondering if there’s a solution that can help them reclaim a more youthful, refreshed appearance. That’s the promise of Restylane® Eyelight, a groundbreaking new dermal filler that has just received FDA approval for treating the delicate undereye area.

What is Restylane Eyelight?

Restylane Eyelight is an HLA (hyaluronic acid) dermal filler formulated with Nasha Technology, providing a firm gel texture for a more pronounced lift. The filler is injected into the undereye area to fill in hollows and reduce shadows, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Benefits of Restylane Eyelight:

  1. FDA-approved specifically for the undereye area
  2. Smooth and moldable, reducing the risk of visible bumps or dark discoloration
  3. Long-lasting results, with some patients experiencing improvements for up to 12 months or longer
  4. Fewer adverse events compared to other fillers, such as bruising or tenderness

Comparison to Other Treatments

There are several options available for treating undereye hollows and dark circles. Topical creams and serums can temporarily improve skin hydration and brightness, but they often fail to address the underlying volume loss. So, what sets Restylane Eyelight apart from the myriad of other cosmetic treatments out there?

For starters, it’s been specifically designed with the unique challenges of the undereye area in mind: no more one-size-fits-all approaches or off-label usage of fillers meant for other parts of the face. Eyelight is tailored to address the specific needs of this sensitive region, offering a safe and effective solution that delivers actual results.

Other dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® Volbella, can be used for the undereye area. Still, they may not provide the same level of lift and longevity as Restylane Eyelight. Surgical options, like fat transfer or blepharoplasty, can offer more dramatic results but come with increased risks, downtime, and cost. Restylane Eyelight stands out as a safe, effective, and long-lasting solution specifically designed for the delicate undereye area, making it an ideal choice for many patients seeking to rejuvenate their appearance without surgery.

The Procedure and Recovery

The Restylane Eyelight treatment is relatively quick and can be performed in the comfort of a dermatology office. Before your treatment, a consultation will allow your doctor to survey your undereye area and discuss your goals to determine if Eyelight is right for you.

The procedure begins with the areas being cleansed thoroughly, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to ensure your comfort. A fine needle is then used to inject the Eyelight filler into your undereye area, strategically focusing on the tear troughs and any areas of volume loss. This entire procedure typically takes less than half an hour.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness or bruising, which should subside within a few days to a week. Follow your detailed post-treatment care instructions, including avoiding strenuous exercise, sleeping with your head slightly elevated and using cold compresses to minimize swelling. You can immediately return to your typical activities. However, it’s best to avoid wearing makeup or exposing the treated area to excessive sun or heat for the first 24-48 hours.

Maintenance and Follow-up

To maintain the optimal results of your Restylane Eyelight treatment, Dr. Ting recommends scheduling follow-up appointments every 6-12 months. During these visits, he will assess the condition of your undereye area and determine if any touch-up treatments are necessary to keep you looking your best.

In between treatments, there are several steps you can take to maintain your results:

  • Always wear broad-spectrum sunscreen outdoors and avoid excessive sun exposure.
  • Keep your skin hydrated using a gentle, moisturizing eye cream and by drinking plenty of water.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, regular exercise and adequate sleep.
  • Avoid rubbing or tugging at the delicate undereye area when applying skincare products or makeup.

By following these tips and maintaining regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Ting, you can enjoy the long-lasting benefits of Restylane Eyelight and keep your undereye area looking refreshed and revitalized.
