Filling of dark circles with hyaluronic acid

Surgeon: Dr. Pierre Escalas

Institut Ophtalmologique Sourdille Atlantique Nantes / Saint Herblain

The dark circle is a depression along the lower rim of the eye socket
It can be constitutional and present from childhood or appear with age, with a very strong impact on the ageing of the eyes.

This ring can be filled with hyaluronic acid which is a natural product slightly modified to give it a longer life.

This area is delicate because an excess of product, even minimal, will have a significant visual impact, so we deliberately aim for a slight under-correction.

This film describes my technique which uses cannulas, i.e. large diameter needles with a rounded end which considerably reduces the risk of injury to a blood vessel and therefore the risk of bleeding or injection of the product into a vessel

An anaesthetic is mixed with the hyaluronic acid and the procedure is virtually painless


The videos have been created and produced with great care to be as relevant as possible. Many topics are controversial and the options presented are rational personal choices, the result of an experiment involving several thousand interventions. Other ways of doing things are possible, they may have been proposed to you, so do not hesitate to ask for the reasons for the choices that were made.

This site is only a guide and does not replace the explanations given in a consultation, which are essential for understanding the analysis of the characteristics of your face, which is unique.

In the same way, the examples presented allow you to understand the principles of eye surgery, but they are not necessarily transposable to your particular situation. It is therefore not possible to guarantee the results that you have seen on the different presentations.

By consulting this site, you accept these limits. If you do not, I ask you not to use it.
