As we age, skin loses its elasticity and “sags" while the fatty layer of the subcutaneous tissue becomes thinner, and the production of collagen and elastin decreases. As a result, the face loses volume and thickness, especially in the middle and the lower third of the face.
You can restore facial volume at PURE medical aesthetics, Stamford, CT using facial filler-based products. Fillers can use hyaluronic acid, bio stimulating materials, or PRP depending on the candidate.
Facial augmentation using injectable fillers in Stamford is popular and a great option for volume loss. Depending on the filler type they can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years giving you a youthful appearance immediately after injection.

Dark circles under the eyes can inaccurately make us look fatigued and depleted. The skin under the eye is particularly thin and delicate, and with age, lack of sleep, or genetics, hollowing and darkness can become more pronounced no matter what we do. The supporting tissues under the eye weaken over time and allow fluids to accumulate making bags.
Our specialists, who treat with undereye filler in Stamford, use hyaluronic acid to address these issues. Replacing the lost volume creates the support that has disappeared, improving the dark under eye hollows and smoothing bags.
The duration of the productforundereye filler depends on the patient's age and lifestyle and ranges from 12 to 18 months.
One of the most attractive qualities of injectable undereye filler is that it does not require a long post-treatment recovery period. Patients can return to daily activities immediately after completing the treatment with undereye filler.
Like any medical procedure, filler injections also carry certain risks that can range from inflammation to infections that require treatment. For this reason, it is very important to evaluate the risks and analyze the benefits before undergoing an aesthetic procedure. Also, remember that taking care of your skin begins with a good diet, exercise, getting enough sleep, and keeping it hydrated and protected from the sun.
