Restylane Eyelight Sherman Oaks

Restylane Eyelight is a part of the Restylane family of fillers, such as Restylane Refyne, Restylane Kyss, and Restylane Lyft. It is one of our favorite fillers here at Cosmetic Injectables Center in treating the undereye hollows.

The filler is the twin sister of Restylane-L as it’s been repackaged and FDA-approved specifically for under-eye hollow treatment. With its low water affinity and soft consistency, it’s specifically tailored to address the delicate and sensitive area around the eyes.

What is Restylane Eyelight?

Restylane Eyelight is a specialized dermal filler within the renowned Restylane product line. It stands out for its targeted approach to rejuvenating the periorbital region, tackling concerns such as dark circles, hollows, and fine lines.

The key to its effectiveness lies in its hyaluronic acid-based formulation, augmented with light-reflecting particles, which work synergistically to replenish lost volume, hydrate the skin without overfilling, and diffuse light.

This ultimately results in a brighter and more youthful appearance. Beyond its immediate cosmetic benefits, Restylane EyeLight also offers the advantage of stimulating collagen production over time, contributing to sustained improvements in skin quality and elasticity.

With its quick and relatively comfortable treatment process and long-lasting results, Restylane EyeLight emerges as a compelling option for individuals seeking to refresh and rejuvenate their eye area without the need for invasive procedures.

Restylane Eyelight Benefits

Compared to all other hyaluronic acids on the market currently, Restylane Eyelight has the least amount of water affinity due to its NASH technology in cross-linking.  This is very beneficial under the eyes, where there are lots of lymphatics that can cause swelling with added water.

While other water-loving fillers can expand on days that you are retaining water (too much alcohol, salt, menses, high altitude, goggles, etc…) and give the eyes the appearance of tiredness or undereye bags, Restylane Eyelight is less likely to expand and have the negative side effects.

It is also more easily and quickly reversible than other hyaluronic acid fillers when a removal agent is injected. Restylane Eyelight comes pre-mixed with lidocaine, a numbing agent, to ensure comfort during treatment.

How Long Will Results Last?

Restylane Eyelight results are typically visible immediately after treatment and take about 2 weeks to settle.  The product lasts about 1 year in the under-eye area. However, there’s always some residual left over that reduces the amount needed to refresh a year later.

Is Restylane Eyelight Reversible?

Restylane Eyelight is a filler made of hyaluronic acids. These molecules are completely and instantly reversible by injecting a reversal agent called hyaluronidase (name brands Hylenex and Vitrase). 

Hyaluronic acid filler molecules are held together by cross-linking. Some fillers have more molecules which makes them last longer, and others have fewer. Fewer molecules in the filler result in faster dissolving. Regardless of the amount of crosslinking, hyaluronidase can be injected to break them down instantly for the body to discard them.

Some fillers only need one session of reversal agent, while other products may need two or three sessions to dissolve completely. If you have experienced migration of your fillers or are unhappy with your filler results and are looking for help, The Cosmetic Injectables Center might the the perfect choice for you. Our experienced providers at Cosmetic Injectables Center in Sherman Oaks, California are experts at the removal and reshaping of misplaced fillers.

Restylane Eyelight Cost & Pricing Structure

The US national average per syringe of Eyelight is $500-$700.  However, bear in mind that it contains half the amount of filler (0.5 ml) compared to a syringe of Restylane-L (1.0 ml) which has the same ingredient.  For that reason, at our office, we offer our patients the choice of using one Restylane-L in place of two Restylane Eyelights to help reduce the cost of the treatment when more than half a syringe is desired. Gift Cards are available here.

  • US National Average: $500-$700 per syringe
  • Our Price: $ Our filler pricing is competitive and we offer regular specials.  We also honor Aspire Rewards Points which both prove the authenticity of our products and help to lower the cost.
  • Additional Costs: There aren’t any additional costs related to the procedure.
  • Insurance: Restylane Eyelight is a cosmetic procedure that is not typically covered by insurance.

How the Procedure Works

At our office, we open packages of Restylane Eyelight in front of our patients and either transfer the filler gel into tiny syringes or use a cannula to increase comfort, safety, and reduce bruising during and after injection. This technique along with the pre-mixed lidocaine (numbing agent) in the product makes undereye hollow treatment a comfortable experience.

Before The Procedure

  • Patients should avoid any blood thinning medications, foods, and drinks such as fish oil, ginkgo biloba, vitamin E, aspirin, anti-inflammatory pain medications, alcohol, and fish to reduce the risk of bruising.
  • Remove any makeup and wash your face thoroughly.
  • Do not schedule your visit within two weeks of a vaccination or dental procedure.

During The Procedure

  • Your skin will be wiped with cleansing agents such as alcohol or hypochlorous acid.
  • Small tiny needles or a blunt tip cannula will be used to skillfully deliver Restylane Eyelight under the muscles underneath the eyes.
  • The product is already premixed with a numbing agent called lidocaine, however topical lidocaine, ice, nitrous gas, and other comforting tools are available and may be used depending on your sensitivity level.
  • We also have a laser vein finder that we typically use during injection to reduce the risk of bruising.  Typically, we do not use more than 0.5 ml per side of the face per visit.

After the Procedure

  • Temporary swelling and bruising is typical with the usage of Restylane Eyelight under the eyes.  However, these usually resolve within two weeks. 
  • Keep the area clean and do not use makeup or creams in the area of injection for 24 hours.
  • During the first 3 days, we recommend keeping the face as still as possible (no extreme smiling or sleeping on the side of the face) to avoid movement of the product.
  • No dental procedures or vaccinations for two weeks after injection.
  • After two weeks, you can reassess your results to decide if an additional filler injection is desired.

Am I A Good Candidate for Restylane Eyelight?

A good candidate for Restylane Eyelight is someone with undereye hollowing that does not have undereye swelling, significant allergies, sinus issues, lymphatic drainage problems, or fluid accumulation such as “malar edema” or “festoons”.

Restylane Eyelight’s safety has not been studied during pregnancy or lactation and hence we recommend avoidance during that time.  One of our skilled and experienced providers can provide you with an assessment to discuss your eligibility for undereye treatment with Restylane Eyelight.

Treatment Areas

While Restylane Eyelight can be used for wrinkle correction throughout the face, the FDA approval is specifically for undereye hollows. 

Make sure to discuss your options with one of our skilled providers to decide if any remainder hyaluronic acid gel from your syringe can be used in other areas.

Similar & Related Procedures

  • Restylane-L is the same product and particle size as Restylane Eyelight with different repackaging and can be used interchangeably.  However, Restylane Eyelight comes with 0.5 ml of hyaluronic acid in each syringe, while Restylane- L comes with 1.0 ml of hyaluronic acid in each syringe.
  • Restylane Silk is the same ingredient as Restylane Eyelight but is processed through smaller grids that make the particle size a lot smaller.  Hence, it is used more for fine facial lines.
  • Restylane Lyft is again the exact same ingredient as Restylane Eyelight, but is processed through much larger grids which makes the particle size a lot larger.  It is hence good for areas which firmer, more volumized results are desired such as the cheeks.
  • Restylane Refyne uses a different crosslinking process (Express) than Restylane Eyelight (NASHA) which results in a more flexible product.  This consistency is good for areas that bend a lot and are superficial such as fine lines around the mouth.
  • Restylane Defyne uses a crosslinking process similar to Restylane Refyne (Express) which is different than the one used by Restylane Eyelight (NASHA).  Restylane Defyne is great for areas that bend a lot and are deep such as the smile lines.

Side Effects & Risks

  • Just as with any other injectable procedure, bruising is a common risk with undereye injection of Restylane Eyelight.  We reduce this risk by using a laser vein finder and/or a blunt tip cannula at our office. 
  • Swelling tends to be another common side effect of undereye fillers, especially with Restylane Eyelight. We have treatment modalities to reduce this risk as well.
  • Lumps, bumps, redness, and pain are also common and usually resolve within a few hours to two weeks.  If desired, this product is easily reversible with the injection of a dissolving agent. 
  • Other rare side effects can include reaction to the product or blockage of vessels, or Tyndal effect which is a blue hue that occurs when fillers absorb most lights and reflect blue light. This gives the appearance of a bruised look.  Restylane Eyelight’s risk of Tyndal effect is very low when injected properly.

An alternative filler for the under-eye is EZ Gel. EZ Gel is a product made from one’s blood, and while it can have the anti-aging and rejuvenating beneficial effects that PRP and PRF have, it also has the effect of a bit of fullness for a few weeks/months.

What is the best age to get undereye filler?

Most filler safety studies are done in adults above the age of 18.  However, there’s no exact age for the undereye filler procedure.  This is because some people genetically are born with undereye hollows and can easily reverse it with this simple procedure if they choose to.
