Skin and Allergy News - "Off-Label Fillers Help Reposition Aging Eyes"

Off-label use of hyaluronic acid fillers can help reposition aging eyes for a younger look. As bones of the orbital socket dissolve with age, the globe of the eyeball descends and shifts laterally, shifting the balance of the gaze. Permanent fillers such as silicone have been used in the retro-orbital space to lift up the globe, but that doesn’t help move the globe from a lateral to a more medial position, Dr. Ellen S. Marmur said at the annual meeting of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery. For patients who are older, she may extend the two-point technique into a five-point technique or even a circumferential technique. Learn more.
