Watch: 2 L.A. Skin Experts Answer Your Burning Questions on Under-Eye Fillers

As it turns out, many who walk into the dermatologist's office convinced they need under-eye filler could, in fact, actually make matters worse if they go through with it. If you don't have hollowing underneath your eyes, filler (which is a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a sugar that your body naturally creates) could end up looking puffy and develop "mounds" in the treated area—not exactly the look you were aiming for. Which is why finding a dermatologist or skin expert who's conservative with filler is key.

I experienced this very situation myself a few months ago: I was convinced I needed filler injected in my under-eyes, but my derm, Shereene Idriss of Union Square Dermatology, was blatantly honest (which I appreciated) about the fact that filler wouldn't "sit" on the bone underneath my eye because of the way my skull is structured. Instead, she told me, she'd need to strategically place the filler on my temples and upper cheeks to lift the skin and get my desired look. There's a science to it, one that these experts went through intensive training for, so it wasn't up to me to dictate when and where she should inject me.

If you're considering under-eye filler yourself, you probably have a lot of questions and perhaps some fears. That's understandable—there's a lot to know before sitting in the chair (like the fact that it makes a crackling noise as it's being injected—don't say I didn't warn you), and you probably want to put your mind at ease. So, we enlisted the help of Good Skin L.A. founders Lisa Goodman and Laura Pack and made a video answering all your burning filler questions. Watch it below!
