When someone gets a filler injected under their eyes, does this mean it gets injected on the upper most part of the cheek just beneath the eye (on the bone just below the eye socket)? Or directly underneath the eyeball just before the upper cheek bone starts (this seems like a scary place to inject fillers)?

I want the Juvederm over the bone that's just below the eye, I think that's where I need it. I'm only 24 but started getting sunken looking eyes because of weight loss....makes my dark eye circles look worse and I always get told that I look tired and people often think I don't sleep much.

I hope I make sense. I too am wondering how long this will last and whether or not I should get it before or after my BA+tip plasty.

Also, do you pay for fillers by the cc? I don't want to waste a whole syringe of it just to get the eyes done, so I'm going to do my lips at the same time for just a slight increase in volume (don't want fish lips).

At my places it's $500/syringe as well (same price for Restylane).

Restylane in the eye area is MUCH better than Juvederm - Juvederm can cause some puffiness from the product binding to too much water. Restylane also comes in 0.4cc syringes and often that's enough to do tear troughs (the sunken under eye area). Ours sell for $350.

Should last you about 6 months the first time you do it, longer with subsequent injections.

Mine was injected in the tear trough area and cheek next to the nose area to give volume .. not near the under eye area by bone ... so where the "v" kinda is by your eye corner and goes down by your nose area .. they fill it up and poof your eye circles /darkness is gone .. I did have one Dr try the orbital bone once and it didnt look good ... but it might of been placed too high.. maybe it they did actual cheek bone ...

and then they also did the cheek area next to the nose area to have more volume like when you are younger and while I didnt think I needed it, the after pics, really do make a difference, I didnt see a difference in the mirror but pics show it.

The pain isnt that bad for eyes, lips hurt the worse but I dont like the shots for lips so I skip it, it causes too much swelling after..

YES...Thats EXACTLY where I want it!!! You just described the area that I need filling in! I too don't feel likeI need it that much when I look in the mirror, but when I see my self in pics, my eyes look kinda dark and sunken! big difference from the way my eyes looked 3 years ago.
Did you get Restylane or Juvederm? And how many cc did your doc use for your eyes and lips?
I wish I could see your pics! Then I could show it to my doc!

Well for my lips I had juvie.. and they use about half a syringe .. and my places stores the rest for me when I need it in the future. Thank goodness because it's so pricey!

I only had my eye area done once last year and will do it again some time this year as it's wearing off just a bit ... I had Juvie in the eye area and the cheek area ( near my nose I mentioned earlier for both sides ) I used one syringe but for my tear troughs I used half for both and the rest he put in lips since he was going to throw it away! (I dont use that PS anymore since he over filled my eyes and I got blue tinge and found a bettter injector now)

But this time around I will use Restalyne as I hear it's better for under eye area.

But even with it being a tad bit over filled, it went down over time and blueness faded, I still looked better than before ... so while I like Juvie in lips and face, I know I wont use all of it in my eye area I will just have her use what she can for my eyes and use the rest in my lips.. I have half a syringe left in storage now of Juvie but I am saving it for nasal area or somewhere else on my face ..

I wish I had taken before pics myself..but my old PS has them and I dont use him anymore.. He was pricey and didnt store my unused fillers... but my new injector does and she is so much better and doesnt "sell" me you know ? like he did .. but take before pics yourself and afters .. I did of my laser so when I do a blog or something in the future I have them..

When I had my nasal fold area done and lips done last year I used only one syringe total. Just to give you an idea. I keep saying I want my lips bigger but they say they are fine but I love how they look when they are first swollen! LOL

But I dont want to go overboard and look freaky.. and I can see how it go there..

Girls I recommend Juva ULTRA PLUS
not only ULTRA, make sure its ULTRA "PLUS"

this is best for the cheek areas because the molecule is slightly bigger so it wil give you girls MORE volume and will last longer.

I find that restayln on the face is very very thin it desolves quickly, it is best for the crow feet area (side of the eyes), little wrinkles that need filling up (nose folds) and certainly it is BEST for lips as its thin enough to give soft lip tissue that nice pout without looking like a fish!

Good luck!

juvederm

I've gotten Juvederm 4 times. I've gotten it two main times, but I went back a month or so later for touch-ups. I always am sure to tell them to put numbing cream on and let it sit for 20 minutes or so. (The first time, I figured they knew what they were doing, but after my 2nd time when the numbing cream was on for long enough, I realized I'd been screwed the first time.) Anyway, I get it under my eyes only-but, yeah, that includes the upper cheek area for volume, too. I actually went today for a touch-up. I wanted more for my under-eye circles as opposed to my wrinkles (which have been helped by the last dose.) He said he couldn't do it right under my eye (which is where I needed it.) So, he recommended radiesse for cheek fullness. I got it, even though I didn't want to spend the money. It was $800 for the small bit of Juvederm and radiesse today. The usual cost for juvederm is $500 per syringe at my doctor, too.

juvederm/radiesse bruising

I totally understand! I actually was going to meet a friend tomorrow night, and now my cheeks are swollen (one more than the other) from the radiesse, and I may have to make an excuse! Agh! I'm a teacher so I'm off work this week (last week, ugh!), but I'm meeting some other teachers/my principal to collaborate on Wednesday, and I'm worried about being swollen for that, too. I mean, what can you say? "Yeah, it's nothing, my boyfriend just hit me." I'm so glad I'm not a celebrity, having them cover every tiny thing I get done. (Although, then I'd have more money to do it!) We live in a double-edged sword society b/c we can now do all these things to make ourselves look better, but now we obsess about what to do next!

Oh, about the bruising, the only thing I've read is to not take ibuprofen a week before you get it. However, I didn't, and I still bruised.

A couple things affect your likeliness of bruising with fillers. If you're on any anti-inflammatories (Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Naprosyn, etc), omega fatty acid supplements (fish oil, flax oil, etc), high dose vitamin E (400+ IU), ginko biloba, st, john's wort, etc ALL of those things increase bleeding and should be avoided a week to two weeks prior to injections. In our office we recommend you take Arnica (homeopathic tablets), eat pineapple (the enzyme Bromelain in there helps prevent bruising) and use plenty of ice when getting your work done.

Radiesse ALWAYS causes quite a bit of bruising and can cause significant swelling. It is a thick product. Plan on swelling being there for about 5-7 days, bruising for 5-14 days. Lots of ice for the swelling.

Another thing that can cause bruising is if your injector injects too quickly. They need to inject slowly to help void bruising. Some people just bruise easier than others as well and there is nothing that your injector can really do to help that other than use ice and perhaps some vitamin K cream afterwards.

For the cheek area I prefer Perlane or Radiesse. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a great product but its "soft" in comparison to the others and tends to flatten out faster. Perlane and Radiesse initially will feel stiffer but will soften up to the point you don't feel them after about a week. I have used both in my cheeks. In some ways I prefer Perlane in the area since I can push the product up under my eyes to help with filling tear troughs. You can't do that with Radiesse since it can form nodules under the thin eye skin. When doing cheek injections the product is best placed right on top of the bones.

The undereye area injections also need to be right on top of the orbital bone, under the muscle or you will get that blueish tint under your eyes (a prism effect called tindalling). You can get that anywhere that a hyaluronic acid filler like Juvederm or Restylane is placed too shallow in the skin (lips too).

No radiesse in the lips or eye area, nodules can form and they take forever to go away!!!
