Do you find yourself frequently trying to cover up dark circles under your eyes or feeling like you look tired even when you’re well-rested? These concerns can stem from hollowness or pigmentation in the tear trough area under the eyes.

The tear trough is the area under the eye that extends from the inner corner of the eye, following the lower eyelid, and continuing down towards the cheek. It is a depression in the skin that can become more noticeable with age or due to genetics, weight loss, or stress.

Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume and smooth out hollowness in the tear trough area. The filler used for this treatment is typically hyaluronic acid-based and is specially formulated for use in the delicate under-eye area. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump.

During the initial consultation, our pharmacist will assess your eye area and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. If you are, the procedure will be scheduled, and a topical anaesthetic cream will be applied to the area to minimize discomfort during the treatment.

A cannula or a small needle is used to deposit the filler beneath the skin in the tear trough area. The cannula technique is preferred as it reduces the risk of bruising, swelling, and other side effects. The filler is injected at a precise depth and angle to ensure even distribution and a natural look.

The entire procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to complete, and there is minimal downtime. Some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness in the treatment area, which can be easily covered with makeup. The results are immediate and can last up to a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism.

As with any cosmetic treatment, there is a risk of side effects, although they are typically minor and short-lived. Some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or redness in the treatment area. In rare cases, more severe side effects such as infection, allergic reaction, or vision problems may occur.
