Tear Trough Fillers
No one wants to look tired all the time, no matter how much sleep they may get. Unfortunately, this is the reality for people with the signs of aging or genetics that cause the under-eye area to sag and lose volume with time. The so-called tear trough beneath the eye is a delicate area of skin and tissue that is among the first to show the signs of aging, and can be revitalized with under-eye or tear trough dermal fillers.
What are Tear Trough Fillers?
Dermal fillers, wherever they’re used in the face, are made of a formula with the active ingredient hyaluronic acid. This compound, found and created naturally by your skin, attracts water in a highly efficient way to add volume and elasticity to the areas it’s most prevalent.
However, with age, the production and supply of hyaluronic acid (HA) decreases, contributing to the signs of aging such as wrinkles and volume loss. Injections of HA fillers can temporarily rejuvenate treated areas by drawing moisture to the skin and smoothing out surface lines and wrinkles.
When it comes to tear trough fillers, dermal fillers are injected to raise the apparent level of skin to eliminate under-eye bags, creases, or other concerns that may be affecting your facial appearance.
Who is a Good Candidate for Fillers?
The most common concerns people experience when seeking tear trough fillers are:
- Moderate skin sagging under the eyes
- Creases under the eyes
- Shadows cast by volume loss below the eyes
As with most cosmetic treatments, people receiving dermal fillers of all kinds should be generally healthy, not allergic to any of the ingredients of a specific formula, and aware of the realistic expectations of the treatment. Non-smokers are preferred candidates for tear trough fillers and other injectables, and Dr. Roy may require you to avoid certain substances and medications before and after your filler treatment.
The Tear Trough Filler Procedure
There are many different formulas of hyaluronic acid fillers, as well as different brands that can bring about different results. In general, soft fillers are typically the most employed for under-eye fillers, and a conservative approach to the amount of filler used is often the best approach for a natural appearance.
To begin, our nurse injector Cat, will disinfect and anesthetize the skin under your eyes to ensure the procedure is safe and comfortable. Next, she’ll inject the chosen dermal filler throughout the under-eye area with a few insertions of a blunt cannula. Once the procedure is over, you’re free to go home or return to your normal activities, other than those that would negatively affect your results.
