I have a few smile lines that I wouldn’t mind getting filled or even anti-wrinkle injections in this area if possible? And some dark shadows under my eyes?
Smile lines around the eyes can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections as well as dermal fillers. Anti-wrinkle injections help to relax the muscle that causes crinkling around the eyes. Fillers can help to re-volumise the area, and help to reduce wrinkles in the same way putting more air into a balloon makes it firmer and tighter.
Dark shadows under the eyes can often be due to hollowing just under the lower eyelid. Putting a dermal filler in this groove or hollow can help to lift this and ‘bring it out of the shadows’ . Also it helps to smooth the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek, which rejuvenates the eye area.
