The Hidden Dangers of Under Eye Dermal Fillers: A Cautionary Tale

Introduction to the Dangers of Under Eye Dermal Fillers

Under eye dermal fillers, while popular in medical spas for their immediate results, carry a significant risk, including the rare but serious possibility of blindness.

Understanding Under Eye Dermal Fillers

Definition and Purpose Under eye fillers have gained popularity in the past decades to combat aging issues around the eyes. These fillers are used to minimize under-eye hollows, but their benefits are temporary, often requiring repeated treatments.

The Severe Risks and Problemes of Under Eye Fillers

Emphasis on the Risk of Blindness In rare cases, the procedure can lead to blindness, a risk not commonly disclosed.

Other Potential Complications Apart from blindness, fillers can lead to infections, allergic reactions, and the Tyndall effect. It can also migrate, creating unwanted lower eye-bags.

Short-lived Benefits Fillers offer a temporary fix, often leading to a cycle of repeated procedures.

Superior Alternatives: Microneedling and Morpheus8

Explanation of Microneedling This technique stimulates natural collagen production, offering lasting benefits with minimum downtime. Once the collagen is created, it is forever yours.

Benefits of Morpheus8 Morpheus8 is now the new gold standard in treating under-eye issues. It combines microneedling with radiofrequency to enhance skin rejuvenation. It shows results in fewer number of treatments than the plain microneedling procedure.

Longevity of Collagen Production Unlike fillers, the collagen produced from these methods is long-lasting and natural.

While under-eye dermal fillers might seem like an easy solution, the potential risks, especially the rare but severe risk of blindness, make it vital to consider safer, more sustainable alternatives like microneedling and Morpheus8.
