Injectable dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® and RADIESSE®, may be used to enhance the area around the eyes by replenishing volume in areas such as the tear troughs and reducing wrinkles. However, the results of injectable dermal fillers are temporary, lasting anywhere between 6 and 9 months. Although these treatments can help improve the appearance of the eyes, they are not an equal alternative to surgery, which repositions and removes excess tissue for a more refined appearance.
During your consultation, Dr. Rocheford evaluates your eyelids and the surrounding tissue to help you decide which course of action can create the best results for you.
