Question: I would like to receive an injectable filler treatment around my eyes to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Is there a brand that gives the most natural look?
Answer: I want to avoid looking stiff and unnatural like you see a lot of celebrities looking. Looking natural versus unnatural is more a function of the injector and his or her technique rather than the product. However, there are some products that are ideal and some that should be avoided. Restylane and Juvederm work best for lines or dark circles under the eyes. Botox is often needed also to prevent the lines from wrinkling when you smile. All of this can be done in moderation in a very natural manner. Bruising is the major risk but puffiness can also occasionally occur in a very small minority of patients.
