According to her testimony, people noticed a positive difference in her face. But they were not able to really identify what took place. It is not obvious that she had a non surgical cheek lift using a filler.
Radiesse Under the Eyes
In addition to her non surgical cheek lift, the patient also had the filler applied to improve the hollows and wrinkles of her tear troughs. Having deep and dark under eye areas is a very common complaint that many people have. Although there are many cosmetic dermal fillers available, it is important to avoid using clear substances which run the risk of looking blue under the skin. This is called the Tyndall effect. Light will scatter when it passes through a clear suspension. And this will result in a bruise like discoloration.
