Understand the Benefits of Tear Trough Fillers

Tear trough filler is a popular way to improve signs of aging and tired eyes without having to go through surgery.

Dermal filler treatments are a fantastic way to maximise facial rejuvenation and restore your natural harmony.

It is a minimally invasive procedure that can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and under eye hollows.

It can also provide an overall more youthful and vibrant look by smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the area, creating lift, and restoring volume loss which gradually decreases during the natural ageing process.

The treatment involves injecting a dermal filler into the tear trough area, just below the eyes.

This helps restore volume, fill out sunken hollows and brighten up dark circles for a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

The treatment typically takes around 15 minutes with no downtime required.

Tear trough filler is not only cost-effective but it can also provide long lasting results that last up to two years or more depending on your individual skin type and lifestyle habits.

Additionally, unlike other facial treatments such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels that require multiple sessions to achieve results, tear trough filler usually requires only one session to see noticeable improvement in the eye area.

It is important to do your research prior to undergoing this treatment and talk to your doctor about any potential risks or side effects associated with this procedure.

They may also need to take photos of your face for comparison purposes prior to starting treatment so that you can have an understanding of what improvements have been made afterwards.

Dr Chike will be able to recommend an appropriate product based on your individual needs, as well as give instructions on how best care for your skin post-procedure in order avoid complications or long term damage.

What Are Tear Troughs?

Tear troughs are a type of facial crease that appear around the eyes as people age.

They form when the eyelid and cheek muscles weaken, allowing fat and skin to droop towards the lower eyelid.

This can cause dark circles, puffiness, and other signs of aging to appear in the area. To reduce or eliminate this effect, many professionals offer treatments such as dermal fillers or laser resurfacing.

How do tear trough fillers work?

Under eye filler is an injection that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark circles, and drooping eyelids in the under eye area.

It works by plumping and volumizing the area with either a hyaluronic-acid based filler or collagen-stimulating type of filler.

At Hampstead Aesthetics we use Vivacy Stylage products for tear trough fillers.

During a tear trough fillers procedure, your Dr Chike will use a very thin needle to inject tiny amounts of filler into the desired area.

In some cases, numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort.

The results vary from person to person but in general can last up to 12 months depending on the type of product used and how it is injected.

After treatment, you may experience some mild swelling or bruising which should resolve quickly.

  • Immediate results with no downtime required

Why Treating the Tear Trough with Fillers is a Better Option Than Surgery

Tear trough fillers are an ideal alternative to surgery when it comes to treating this common age-related issue.

Compared to surgical procedures, tear trough treatments with dermal fillers are less invasive, require fewer recovery days and carry a lower risk of infection and other complications.

Tear trough dermal fillers work by restoring lost volume and are suitable for people who are concerned about dark circles or fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes, and are looking to restore lost volume.

The results can also be achieved quickly and last up to a year or more.

Dermal filler injections are relatively painless as well, since they use very fine needles for precise injections into the skin around the eyes.

With under eye filler, you’ll achieve natural-looking results and eliminate the tired looking appearance without scarring or long recovery times – making it an ideal option for those looking for a quick fix without the hassle of surgery and virtually no downtime.

All tear trough fillers are administered by our fully qualified and experienced doctors several times a day.

Possible Risks of Under Eye Tear Trough Fillers

Tear trough filler injections are generally considered safe, but there are some risks associated with the procedure. Common side effects that may occur include:

  • Bruising

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Itching

  • Tenderness

  • Infection

  • Lumpiness or irregular contours of the skin

  • Allergic reaction to the filler

Do dermal fillers work for eye bags and dark circles under the eyes?

Yes, tear trough fillers can be used to reduce dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.

The filler is injected directly into the facial tissues of the hollow area between your lower eyelid and the cheek.

This helps to fill in the depression that causes shadows and creates a fresher, more youthful appearance.

This will enhance facial features and add volume to the skin beneath the eye area.

Under eye filler results are usually seen immediately after treatment and can last up to 12 months depending on the individual's lifestyle and body chemistry.
