As we age, the skin under our eyes becomes loose and fat from the cheeks descends into the middle of the face leaving semi-circular depressions.
Combined with dark circles, this often creates a tired look.
This hollow area that runs from the inner eye margin to the upper cheek is referred to as a tear trough hollow. These depressions make the eyes look ‘sunken’ and cast unflattering shadows under the eyes often known as ‘dark circles’ that can give an impression of a weary, aged appearance.
Dermal fillers can be injected to improve these tear trough depressions. By lifting these hollow areas, it can take away the tired look and lighten the dark circles caused by the shadowing effect.
The under eye treatment is subtle but extremely effective. The overall result of tear trough filler is that of a younger and fresher appearance this treatment that can rejuvenate your look with minimal downtime.
Under Eye Fillers
The treatment procedure involves the careful introduction of a filler into the tear trough, that is then gently massaged into the target area to blend into the cheekbone and re-create the smooth, firm foundation for your under-eye area.
The filler also supports and hydrates the skin.
Topical anaesthetic cream is used for eye treatments prior to the procedure to ensure comfort. The local anaesthetic integrated within the tear trough filler ensures that the treatment is relatively painless both during and after the procedure. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and you will see improvement immediately.
Cannula or needle method will be offered based on clinical indication to give you the best possible result. Swelling happens very infrequently, if it does, tends to be mild and usually subsides within a few days. Bruising is very rare especially with cannula approach, if it happens, can be easily covered up with concealer or makeup.
You can reduce the risk of swelling and bruising by avoiding exercise, alcohol, aspirin and ibuprofen prior to the treatment. You will experience immediate lifting effect from the procedure, nonetheless the final result is usually in 2 weeks time; this is because fillers need time to integrated with the surrounding tissues to achieve hydration balance, and skin in the treated area also needs time to relax and smooth out.
