botox for "sunken eyes"

Postby lammy7 » Fri Apr 13, 2007 11:34 pm

Hiya
I don't know if anyone has the same problem, but ive always had a bit of a hollow eyes look. Its the look that people seem to get when they loose loads of weight (i havent lost loads of weight ive always had it) I looked like this even when I was younger, but its getting worse as im getting older. I can only find advice for people who have puffy eyes or eye bags but i have the opposite problem. Im quite dark around my eyes as well - which emphasises it. I always look a bit ill. You can see my eye socket bone and above that - it looks very hollow.

Anyway - I was wondering if anyone has had a filler for this. Im not sure if you can put a filler so close to the eye?

I would love to hear from anyone who has had this problem.

Loads of love

Lammy

Hello Lammy,

There are a couple of products you can use for the hollowness under the eyes. You can have restylane injections or juvederm injections.

I have used both, and both worked great for me. However, I prefer the juvederm because it is a smoother gel and didn't cause any bruising for me. I did bruise quite a bit with the restylane.

If what you are describing is a lack of volume under the eyes, either of these products should work wonders for you.

Good luck!

Dear Lammy;

I think you have my deep set eyes! I also have prominent cheek bones and a prominate brow bone which makes my eye's sunken.

And...I so agree that age just adds to the problem. I have gone from deep set to sunken and am afraid soon my eye's are gonna look like two peppercorns stuck deeply into a ham!

Hopefully your eyes are not small on top of being deep set. Lammy; I read your post from awhile back and you asked for other's that that also have deep set eyes to contact you, so here I am.

I'm sure you wanted replies w/some suggestions re/ filler and/or botox, however I am just today looking into the problem for the first time and hoped you'd share w/ me what you decided to do...and if it was a success?

Thank You;

mmmmmm

Hiya mmmm

You sound exactly the same as me. I too have deep set eyes and prominent cheekbones and browbone. I think the shadow from the browbone just adds to the darkness as well.
Its good to know im not alone - because all my friends seem to complain about puffy, bags under their eyes - but my problem is the opposite.

Anyway, I have been looking in to this and have had lots of recommendation for restylane and juvederm injections (just as cateyes recommends above). This seems to be a popular approach. Im thinking of getting restylane as ive had that on my lips and I did'nt have any problems with it. But im going back to my doctor soon, so I will ask her if she agrees. Ive tried a couple of creams which are supposed to help dark circles and the hollow look, but ive found nothing works for me - e.g. L'oreal collagen filler- for hollowness & dark circles. They are supposed to help the appearence but, they didn't make any difference to me.

I asked Dr. Naderi on this site and this was his answer:
"Hi Lammy,

I am doing well. Thank you.

What you are describing is a common finding after excess fat removal during a Blepharoplasty. However, there are many people with this finding who have never had surgery.

The dark circles can be due to a variety of causes or a combination of causes. Some are easier than others to treat.

Sometimes, the very thin lower eyelid skin will allow the hue and color of the underlying muscle to show through, creating a "dark circle." Other times, there may be some hyperpigmentation along that area creating a "dark circle." Yet other times the sunken eyeball (globe) in relation to the eye socket will create a hollow look with shadows that are created and cause the "dark circles." In this situation you may notice that when you take photographs with a strong flash the dark circles get washed out but if you dont use a flash and the light is coming from above your head then the dark circles get accentuated.

There isnt much you can effectively do for the thin skin problem. Bleaching creams and other treatments are effective for hyperpigmentation.

As far as an actual sunken globe: the easiest fix is fat injection. Filer injections will work for more limited problems such as a grade I or grade II tear trough deformity but not so well when the entire area is sunken and hollow. The more complex approach involves major surgery where actual fat globules are taken as grafts and directly placed around the eyeball so in effect the globe is pushed out.

These are the two main approaches.
"

Please let me know if you find anything, as im hoping to have something done in the next month or so.

Lol and thanks for answering

Lammy
