Tear-trough filler treatment, is a popular non-surgical solution for tackling tired-looking eyes. It is an aesthetic treatment that involves strategically injecting a hyaluronic-acid based dermal filler into specific areas around the eyes, to replace the lost volume brought on through the ageing process.
This results in smoother, younger-looking, eyes, and a reduction in deep wrinkles, dark circles and lines under the eyes.
Let’s address some common questions about a tear trough filler treatment…
When Should You Get Tear Trough Fillers?
Tear trough fillers are an increasingly popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment amongst younger people. However, patients of any age can undergo the procedure if they want to have a freshed, more rejuvenated look and are feeling unconfident about their eyes.
Where are the Tear Troughs?
The tear troughs are area between our lower eyelids and upper cheek. Tear trough hollowing is one of the earliest ageing changes and often is a result of losing collagen.
Why Get Tear Trough Filler?
If you are noticing under your eyes are becoming hollower, darker, deeper, and less revitalised, then tear trough filler treatment is a great treatment for you.
Are Tear Trough Fillers Safe?
Yes, tear trough fillers are safe, as long as you see a medically trained injector with plenty of training and experience. VIVA Skin Clinics only have medically trained, experience injectors, making it a very safe medical environment.
Treatments will only ever be carried out by a highly skilled practitioner at VIVA.
How Is Tear Trough Treatment Carried Out?
Tear trough filler treatment involves numbing the tear trough area with a topical anaesthetic and then injecting the area with dermal filler, which works to boost collagen production and replace the lost volume in that area. The treatment will normally involve an in-depth consultation beforehand, outlining any possible risks and then the treatment itself will take under 30 minutes.
Do Results Look Natural?
Yes, tear trough fillers produce very natural-looking results. As opposed to looking like you have had any aesthetic treatments done, you will look younger, healthier and refreshed!
How long do results last?
On average tear trough fillers can last anywhere between 6 and 9 months. The expected longevity of your fillers will also depend on the specific brand, your metabolism and other factors. We always recommend patients book in for maintenance treatments every 6 months.
