You’ve probably heard about how fillers for your face can emphasise lips or even be used to plump and sculpt, like enhancing the cheek bones. But did you know it can also be used to add volume – such as in the under-eye area?
Our eyes are one of the most sensitive places of the body, and the skin around them is very fine and delicate. Over time, the surrounding area can develop dark circles or a sunken-in look, which can create a tired or aged appearance. Tear trough fillers are the ideal solution – and we’ll explain a bit more about how they work, and why you could consider them, in today’s post.
So, how does tear trough filler work?
Well, the filler is carefully injected into targeted areas to give a fresher, more youthful appearance. As with other fillers for your face, tear trough filler is a non-surgical treatment. It’s a great way to rejuvenate the eyes and can create a more wide-awake look, with younger-looking skin. The filler contains hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in our body’s cells. It has plumping qualities and is good at maintaining moisture.
Does the treatment hurt?
We know how sensitive your under-eye area can be. That’s why we use extremely fine needles to deliver your tear trough filler, and we’ve honed our technique to ensure minimal discomfort at time of treatment. We may also be able to numb the area.
How often will I need tear trough filler?
The effects of your filler will last several months, but results do vary between our clients – those with more active metabolisms may find their body breaks down the filler more quickly. We’ll advise you on results during your consultation, but the main takeaway is that though tear trough fillers do create lasting results, regular treatment is needed to maintain effects.
What’s causing my eye bags?
There could be many things behind the problem, but ageing is usually the leading cause. This might be natural ageing, or ageing that’s accelerated by factors like sun exposure. With natural ageing, production of collagen – the skin’s protein – slows and skin becomes more thin and ‘saggy’. This creates pockets of fat that look sunken or shadowy. Other causes include things like lack of sleep and rubbing of the under-eye area (such as due to allergies).
