Understanding Under Eye Filler for Men

As men age, bags, dark circles under eyes, and hollow tear troughs are usually accompanied by deepening nasolabial folds. This is due to volume loss, primarily in the midface. The bags and hollows under your eyes can become even more prominent when the area beneath them sinks in. Fillers help replace lost volume and add structure to the entire midface. This smooths nasolabial folds, supports the under eye area, and creates a foundation on top of which we can layer under eye filler.

Ready for another eye-opening fact? Even the toughest guys have delicate under eye skin. Because the skin under the eyes is so thin, our injectors use silky smooth fillers that contain hyaluronic acid to balance gentle sculpting of the under eyes with firm support in the midface.

While we always take a customized approach, our under eye treatments for men typically feature these go-to fillers:

We may also recommend UPNEEQ®, a prescription eye drop, to give your eyes an extra wake-up call when combined with dermal fillers.

What Is Complete Under Eye Filler/Midface Rejuvenation?

At MFI, we’re all about raising the bar to provide the artistry and results you deserve, and our approach to under eye fillers is no exception. Instead of using isolated injections, which can make the under eye area look worse, we address the cheeks, midface, and tear troughs together for comprehensive and naturally transformative results.

Guys, what does all this mean for you? You’re in very capable hands! That’s because our Injectors consider everything when fully customizing your under eye filler treatment. They assess your facial anatomy, skin condition and laxity, volume loss, and other factors. Of course, your aesthetic vision and goals are also paramount.

Targeted Under Eye Filler

Although about 90% of the men we see benefit from complete under eye rejuvenation, some patients with minimal symptoms may only require a mini under eye procedure. This approach may be ideal for men who have minimal midface and under eye volume loss and don’t wish to address their cheeks. For these guys, we offer a more limited, single-appointment under-eye procedure which uses less filler and comes at a lower cost.

Why Are Men Getting Under Eye Fillers?

Let’s face it: We’re a society that values looking young, fierce, and fit! With masks coming off and societal taboos about men and self-care finally being lifted, guys are embracing the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to look and feel their absolute best. Digital platforms such as TikTok, Instagram, and Zoom are also to thank for changing our aesthetic views and standards. And, for better or worse, digital influences (and social media influencers) are putting us all “out there” and on display, giving us more reasons than ever to invest in our appearance with cosmetic procedures like under eye rejuvenation.

Here are more reasons why dermal filler for men is on the rise:

  • Increases self-confidence—both socially and professionally
  • Makes a better first (and lasting) impression—you look less haggard and more energetic
  • Restores facial volume—improves overall facial aesthetics and helps you appear more healthy and fit
  • Smooths wrinkles and lines—gives you a more youthful, rejuvenated look

Don’t Be Fooled: Under Eye Filler Misconceptions & Concerns

It’s natural to have questions and concerns if you’re considering any type of cosmetic treatment, including under eye fillers for men. Remember, we’re always available to provide you with answers and resources. To remove any mystery or misperceptions about such a safe and popular treatment, here are answers to some of our most asked questions men (and women!) have about under eye fillers:

Is under eye filler painful?

No. Most fillers contain topical lidocaine to automatically numb the under eye area as it’s being treated. We even offer you nitrous oxide if you’re feeling extra anxious. In general, your under eye treatment should be quick, relatively painless, and well-tolerated from start to finish. You got this.

How safe is under eye filler?

You can lay back, relax, and feel confident when you are under the care of our experienced, qualified team of Injectors. We prioritize your safety and use only the best FDA-approved under eye filler products and brands. Plus, dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring chemical that is metabolized by your body, so there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction.

Will I have to worry about side effects or downtime?

You’re busy; we get it. The good news is, under eye filler treatments usually require little to no downtime, aside from minor swelling and bruising, and side effects typically subside within 2 to 5 days. That said, following our under-eye dermal filler aftercare protocol is essential for optimal healing and results.

Will my filler results look fake?

Not when your face is in our hands! Our Injectors use their artistry and know-how over the course of two or more appointments to get it right. We start with adding structure and support to the midface. Then 1 to 3 months later, once all swelling has disappeared, we layer filler under the eyes and in any areas that need a little refining.

Planning for Your Under Eye Filler Treatment

Our goal is to provide an amazing experience and put patients at ease about every aspect of their cosmetic procedure. This starts with your under eye consultation, where most men quickly determine we’re the perfect match for their treatment. After exploring your needs and answering your questions, we map out a customized under eye filler treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Here’s a general overview of what you can expect during the different stages of your under eye treatment:

  • At your consultation, we’ll take detailed photos of your under eyes from all angles to help pinpoint your concerns, tailor your treatment, and monitor your progress.
  • You will undergo a minimum of 2 under eye treatments to build and layer results that look natural and “just right.”
  • Some initial swelling and bruising are normal for 2 to 5 days following each treatment, but you can return to work and resume most activities immediately.
  • Depending on the fillers we use, your results can last 6 to 18 months or longer. Keep it fresh by visiting us every 9 to 12 months for touch-ups.
