Dark circles are often synonymous of fatigue and illness, in this short article we explore the risks and benefits of techniques to improve the appearance of the eyes

Dark circles are skin depressions due to the natural presence of the lacrimal sulcus, which can be deeper depending on the individual morphology. The sub-millimeter skin thickness (it is the thinnest skin of our body!) contributes giving the bluish - purplish color often poorly tolerated. These characteristics contribute to a tired and heavy gaze, often with visible blood capillaries in the orbital margins.


Hyaluronic acid comes to help us because it allows to fill the groove giving freshness

arteries to avoid

However, this is not a risk-free procedure! It must be performed with particular techniques to minimize the risks, in particular the territory of the angular artery must be avoided. An intravascular injection can cause blindness due to ischemia of the optic nerve. There should be exclusive use of the cannula in the lacrimal sulcus area, stopping before the medial canthal tendon of the eye, in order to be in maximum safety. It is also important to perform small boluses of the product to avoid accumulations and lymphatic stasis.

Dr Zattoni injection technique

My personal technique always makes use of the use of the cannula, to minimize the risks and trauma to the tissues. I perform a rather central access, near the apex of the cheekbone, which allows me to check both the medial and lateral areas. I never use more than 0.5cc of product per side. I repeat the procedure only after 6 months, to avoid unwanted swelling. In almost all cases there is no need to refill the medial area (lacrimal sulcus) until after 12 months. While the lateral area can be refilled after 6 months, given the greater mobility of the cheekbone in this area.


Associated with the filler it is possible to perform treatments aimed at lightening the area, such as prp which allows great results.
