tear trough filler

Do you constantly look sleep deprived no matter what you do? When even a great night’s sleep doesn’t shift dark, under eye circles, it could be time to consider a cosmetic treatment.

Dark undereye shadows, or tear troughs, are a common problem that occurs with age. The cheek tissues begin to droop, causing a little groove between the upper cheek and the lower lid. This is known as a tear trough.

With tear trough filler, you can eliminate that sleep deprived look and achieve a fresh, youthful appearance. Below you’ll discover more about tear trough fillers and how they work.

What are tear trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers are typically made with hyaluronic acid. They help to enhance volume underneath the lower lid, helping to eliminate dark circles and hollows. These non-surgical treatments have become highly popular in recent years.

Juvéderm is one of the leading non-surgical fillers currently used in cosmetic surgery. It is currently coming up for FDA approval. If it does get approved, it would be the first filler to be recommended specifically as tear trough filler.

How do they work?

Mr Tulley uses a very thin form of hyaluronic acid filler. He will inject it deep, close to the bone. The filler is administered very carefully to ensure a smooth result. To ensure it is a painless procedure, Emla cream is used with a local anaesthetic.

Are there any risks and complications?

Compared to having surgery to reduce dark circles, tear trough fillers are very safe. However, there are some potential risks and complications to be aware of.

As the injections are being given close to the eye, great care needs to be taken to ensure they are carried out safely. If something were to go wrong, it could potentially cause serious issues including blindness. So, always make sure the surgeon you choose to carry out the procedure is highly skilled in the application of tear trough fillers.

While they can be highly effective, tear trough fillers are only a temporary solution. The results will last for up to 12 months before the treatment needs to be redone. Book a consultation with Mr Tulley today to see whether a tear trough filler could help to eliminate your sleep deprived look.
