Abstract :

The periorbital area clearly shows the signs of aging in a person. During facial aging, these fat-filled compartments undergo substantial changes characterized by loss of volume, ptosis and tear trough deformity. The procedure of hyaluronic acid fillers is used in the treatment of periorbital adipose and dark circles. The minimally invasive soft tissue fillers used to restore the area have to account for the different fat properties in the periorbital region to be treated. Only after the morphological analysis of the suborbicularis oculi fat pads (soof) and the Charpy fat pad do we know which volumes are required to restore contour and balance. For volumizing effect, the interaction of fillers and facial fat pads is crucial. Each HA-based filler is different in viscosity, rigidity, and in type and degree of cross-linking. Different types of fillers may be used, depending on their respective biophysical properties, to target specific adipose tissue compartments or subcompartments in varying depth and location. For example, fillers with less rigidity, which tend to diffuse are naturally more useful in superficial areas such as the periorbital area. The procedure is performed with a cannula technique, thus safer and more comfortable for the patient.
