Hyaluronic Acid Injection
Hyaluronic acid fills up the dents from inside
With age, the fat pad descends and inflates the under-eye skin that causes dark shadows or in other words, black eye bags. In some cases, black eye bags are not caused by fat pad inflation but by sagging of the whole under-eye skin. To remove this type of black eye bags, it is necessary to puff up the dents by injecting Hyaluronic acid. In general, Hyaluronic acid is injected in increments of 0.1 ml. However, at Theory Clinic, we inject it in increments of 0.01 ml, which requires greater skill set so as to control the amount of injection to create a natural face line.
What is “Hyaluronic acid Injection”?
One of the causes of eye bags is skin sagging. Due to aging, our skin loosens and forms dark shadows or shriveled area. When treating eye bags, it is important to improve skin dents and sags at the same time. Hyaluronic acid is injected both under and into the skin to lift up the dented skin and tighten sagged skin. Hyaluronic acid is composed of the ingredients that are naturally present in the human body (skin, joints, etc.), therefore, it seldom causes allergy and has been proved safe. However, the treatment using Hyaluronic acid requires great amount of skill.
Slanting lines crossing the under-eye puff and the cheek need to be removed by injecting Hyaluronic acid.

- Female 30's
Problem: Under eye bags and shadows
Characteristics: Shadows caused by dented orbits. In this case, we chose Hyaluronic acid injection instead of degreasing that would have made the dents deeper. Before and after pictures show the effectiveness of the treatment. Which is better- “degreasing” or “Hyaluronic acid injection”? Many patients like to choose Hyaluronic acid injection because of its short downtime. At Theory Clinic, there is no big difference in downtime between degreasing and Hyaluronic acid injection. We determine the best treatment method for each patient by considering such factors as the bone structure, the degree of the orbital fat pad inflation and the cheek fat condition.
