What is Dents Under the Eyes Treatment?
Treatment for dents under the eyes are done to get rid of the dents that may seem too deep by filling the dents with either Hyaluronic acid or stem cells injection. Dents under the eyes can result in looking old and tired. Hyaluronic acid (HA) can be injected to the area to keep the under eyes hydrated and plumpy whereas stem cells are fats that are collected from your own body to inject and fill in the dents.
The type of Hyaluronic acid injection used commonly is Redencity II. Other than HA, this contains various beauty ingredients such as amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins to give natural plump to the treatment area.
Another type of Hyaluronic acid injection is by Cleviel Prime. Cleviel Prime consists of a higher concentration and density of hyaluronic acid which is specially developed for Asians. This type of injection gives higher elasticity and long-lasting effect due to the slower rate of absorption of the high viscosity HA. In addition, Cleviel Prime contains lidocaine (an anesthesia) to reduce the pain during the treatment as well.
