Under Eye Darkness & Hollows Filler Treatment
Due to aging, it is common to lose volume under the eyes and see an increase in darkness, resulting in a tired appearance. Other factors can contribute to this, such as stress and lack of sleep. Skin found under the eyes is more delicate than other facial skin, so it is important to seek a skin expert to treat this correctly.
The Lucere Philosophy is ‘Look Good, Not Done’. It is very important to us that our clients look fresh, rested, natural and beautiful, without looking overdone. At Lucere, Under Eye Hollows & Darkness can be treated with expertly injected Filler, which will add volume, plump and smooth the under eye and tear trough area. The Filler will also work to minimize the appearance of darkness under the eyes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who should be injecting my Under Eye Filler?
The dark under-eye area is a sensitive area and must be treated with exceptional care and with exceptional injection techniques. The Lucere Expert Cosmetic Injector Team has over 50 years of combined injecting experience and we specialize in advanced cosmetic techniques and treatments to ensure our clients have the best results. Our cosmetic injector team is led by our Board-Certified Dermatologist and Cosmetic Dermatologist, who travels nationally to teach other doctors and injectable nurses on advanced injection techniques.
Make sure that you are seeing someone with extensive experience with injecting fillers. The best way to achieve the best value and hopefully not spend more than you need to, is to see someone who knows how to make filler go the extra mile.
What is the Dark Under Eye Filler treatment like?
Before receiving under eye fillers, our Lucere Expert Injector will assess your under-eye area, the texture and thickness of your skin. Upon their assessment, they will determine what type of dermal filler is best for your needs.
Here’s what you can expect:
Step 1: An ice pack or topical anesthetic may be applied on under eye area. Your Lucere Expert Injector will disinfect the skin to prevent infection.
Step 2: Next, they will prepare a syringe containing the filler. The syringe is connected to a cannula or needle, depending on the injection technique chosen. They will inject the filler into the skin beneath your under eye and tear trough area.
Step 3: As they inject the filler, they slowly withdraw the needle. They lightly massage the area to spread the filler. The procedure is repeated beneath the other eyelid. The treatment feels more and more comfortable as the treatment goes on as your filler contains a numbing agent.

How often should I be getting Under Eye Filler?
Regular treatments can help you look less tired, fresher and more rested. The frequency of treatments depends on the treatment site and the type of filler being used. In general, most of the premium, quality hyaluronic acids in the under eye and tear trough area can last for 4-9 months, depending on the type of product used. In general, the body may break down the product sooner based on the treatment area. We encourage clients to keep in touch every 4-6 months to maintain your results and even enhance results. You can always top up with a small amount earlier, so you always look fresh, rested and your best. Regular treatments also prevent further hollowing and volume loss.
What is Filler made of?
Most premium dermal fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid, which is a sugar that is naturally produced by the body. It is responsible for keeping skin hydrated by binding itself to water molecules. Hyaluronic Acid is found in skin and connective tissue. As we age, our skin renews itself slower and we begin to dramatically lose hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. This results in skin that looks aged, more dry, thinner and more wrinkles and folds are created over time.
When expertly injected, filler can be used to restore facial structure, treat fine lines or deep folds, restore facial volume for a lifted effect and reshape and redefine the lips. It is your injector’s technique and experience that will determine the results you will receive.
Is Filler different than Botox?
Yes. Botox and Filler, though both injected into the face, are two different things. Instead of adding volume or defining structure such as fillers do, Botox is a neuromodulator that works by relaxing the muscles in the face, which softens expressions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles in the first place. Botox can be used alongside filler to give you a more youthful, well-rested and fresh appearance. Expertly injected filler can shape and contour the face, restore facial structure, add volume to target features such as the lips, cheeks, chin, nose and/or the jawline.
What is premium filler?
Premium fillers are higher quality fillers that are more volumizing and longer lasting. At Lucere, we carry a full range of premium fillers by brands such as Juvéderm, Restylane and Revanesse. These fillers are specially formulated for specific treatment areas and use, to ensure that any filler treatment looks completely natural.
Are there any more advanced filler options?
Because of the expertise of our injectors at Lucere, we are proud to be one of the few clinics in Alberta to offer Sculptra filler treatment. Sculptra is referred to as a “facelift in a bottle” and is a procedure done over 1-3 sessions to give patients superior results.
Are there longer lasting fillers?
Yes, premium fillers tend to last longer than other non-premium filler materials, and at Lucere, we are proud to carry the best filler product on the market.

What can I expect during my Under Eye Filler treatment?
Before administering your injections, the treated area will be cleaned and prepped for the procedure. You may have a topical anesthetic applied to the area in an effort to numb it so that no pain is felt. Our expert injectors will then inject a precise amount of filler beneath your skin and massage it into place to achieve the desired results.
How fast is the Under Eye Filler treatment and are results instant?
The treatment itself is relatively quick but varies depending on the area of your face being treated and the amount of filler required to achieve the desired results. On average, you can expect your treatment to take approximately 30 minutes, depending on where you are being treated. In terms of your results, you will be able to see them right away, however, you must consider that your treated area will be swollen for a few days, and it takes about 2-6 weeks to have your filler set, giving you the full effect.
What are the potential side effects of a Filler treatment?
Fillers are a relatively safe treatment with not many side effects. It is normal to experience redness, swelling, tingling, firmness, and/or bruising after treatment. These effects are common and temporary, fading away within a few days after treatment.
Remember, you should always research your injector well and only allow a highly trained injector who understands the anatomy of the face to perform this treatment, in order to avoid complications. The risks of potential side effects will be discussed in detail with your Expert Injector during your consultation and treatment, where we will also answer all of your questions.
How much does Lucere’s Under Eye Filler treatment cost?
The price of your treatment will be dependent on the area(s) being treated and the amount of product needed to achieve the desired effect. Lucere’s Under Eye Filler treatment ranges from $650-$1,400. We invite you to contact us for a complimentary consultation, where our experts can create a customized treatment plan based on your own goals, unique facial aesthetic, as well as discuss what’s right for you.
