Tear Trough Filler or Under Eye Filler is a popular solution for tackling tired, dark and hollow looking eyes. It involves carefully injecting dermal filler into specific areas around the eyes, with the objective of softening deep wrinkles and lines, restoring volume and rejuvenating the appearance of the area. A cannula is used for this treatment to ensure safety and precision.
15 – 20 minutes before the treatment takes place, a prescription anaesthetic cream is applied to the injection sites. The filler is injected at precise locations and the skin is massaged to smooth the material. The patient is conscious during the procedure, so they can provide real-time guidance to ensure the results meet their expectations and goals.
The product we use for Under Eye Filler is Juvéderm Volbella which comes from the well-known Juvederm range. Juvederm Volbella is a facial filler made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that helps to bind water to cells. Its extensive cross-linking helps to provide an excellent lifting capacity, making it an excellent choice for restoring volume under the eyes.
Recovery is usually rapid and treatment results are normally visible immediately. Regular activities can resume straight away, with many patients going back to work on the same day. However slight tenderness, bruising or swelling can occur for the first couple of days. Ice can be applied immediately after treatment to minimize these effects. Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or advil for 2 days after treatment – AVOID them for 1 week prior to treatment. Avoid excessive exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
Treatment results will vary with the individual; however most patients will enjoy refreshed and younger look for an average of 12 months.
