Tear trough fillers, sometimes referred to as under eye fillers, (schedule 4 medicine in Australia) are a cosmetic injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles.
The tear trough is the area between the lower eyelid and upper cheek, and as we age or lose weight, it can become more pronounced due to volume loss and thinning skin.
The dermal filler attracts and absorbs water and this is how it provides support, volumisation and hydration of the tear trough area.
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected into the skin and deep tissues of the face to add volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and hollow areas.
There are a number of different types of dermal fillers and these are discussed during your complimentary consultation.
During the treatment, the area can be numbed with a topical cream or through the injection of local anaesthetic.
The dermal filler is then injected into the tear trough using a small needle or cannula technique (these techniques are explained during your complimentary consultation), which helps to minimise bruising, swelling and other potential complications.
Please do not massage the treated area unless instructed, as the dermal filler remains malleable for up to two weeks after treatment.
The results of tear trough filler can be seen immediately, and the treatment typically lasts approximately 6 to 12 months, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle.
Like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, including bruising, swelling, and infection, but these are generally rare and temporary. The risks of treatment will be covered in your consent form ad your practitioner will explained them to you during your complimentary consultation.
It’s important to choose an experienced and qualified practitioner when considering tear trough dermal fillers, as proper technique and injection placement are crucial for achieving natural-looking results and minimising complications.
