What is tear trough treatment?
The area between your lower eyelid and upper cheek is known as your tear trough.
The tear trough filler treatment is an instant and natural looking correction to hollows under the eyes. Eye hollows can develop from an early age, and can change in appearance; it becomes longer, deeper and more shadowed. It can be caused by genetics, lack of sleep, stress, poor diet, and though the normal process as we age. Hollows under the eyes can make you look tired and aged even when you’ve had plenty of sleep and gives the impression of being tired and aged.
What does it do?
A fine grade hyaluronic filler is injected into the deeper part of the Tear Trough and this fills the hollow. This replaces lost volume and at the same time retains skin hydration. Once filled, the area appears flatter and the light reflects off the skin evenly correcting dark shadows (not dark pigment).
How long do the fillers last?
It will normally last between 12-24 months. Although each person is different, some will find it doesn't last the full 12 months.
Are there any side effects?
With any injectable procedure, there is the risk of bruising, which can last up to 2 weeks, sometimes longer, however this is very rare. There is usually minimal swelling and redness with this treatment, but this depends on each person's reaction, and usually lasts from 2-14 days. It can also in most cases be disguised with the use of make up 24 hours after treatment. If you're worried about after effects, come and talk to us and we will advise you.
