About Tear Trough Filler

What is the purpose of the tear trough filler?

Tear trough fillers are a cosmetic treatment used to address the hollow or sunken area under the eyes, also known as the tear trough. This area can become more pronounced with age, and can create a tired or worn-out appearance, even if a person is well-rested. Tear trough fillers involve injecting hyaluronic acid or other dermal fillers into the area under the eyes to plump up and smooth out the skin, reducing the appearance of bags, dark circles, and fine lines. This treatment can provide a more youthful and refreshed look to the face. It’s important to note that tear trough fillers should only be administered by a trained and licensed medical professional, as there are potential risks and complications associated with any cosmetic treatment.

How long does the tear trough filler procedure take

The actual treatment time for a tear trough filler procedure is relatively short, typically taking around 15-30 minutes. However, this can vary depending on the patient’s individual needs and the technique used by our nurse.

During the treatment, the nurse will use a cannula to inject small amounts of filler into the tear trough area. She will carefully monitor the injection site to ensure that the filler is evenly distributed and that the desired results are achieved. Once the injections are complete, the area may be massaged to help the filler settle and reduce any swelling.

Overall, the treatment time for a tear trough filler procedure is not long, and patients can usually return to their normal activities immediately afterwards. However, it’s important to keep in mind that this is a medical procedure and should only be performed by a trained and licensed medical professional in a safe and sterile environment.

What should you expect at your tear trough filler appointment?

The process of administering tear trough filler typically involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: Before the procedure, you’ll have a consultation with our nurse who will be performing the treatment. During this consultation, she will assess your needs, discuss your goals and expectations, and explain the details of the treatment.
  • Injection: Our nurse will use a cannula to inject the hyaluronic acid filler into the under-eye area, targeting the tear trough hollows. The filler will be injected in small amounts at a time, and the injector will use a gentle, massaging motion to ensure that the filler is distributed evenly.
  • Assessment: After the initial injection, the nurse will assess the area and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that the final result is symmetrical and natural-looking.
  • Aftercare: Once the procedure is complete, you’ll be given instructions on how to care for the treated area. This may include avoiding strenuous exercise or sun exposure for a few days and applying cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising.

The entire procedure typically takes about 15-30 minutes, and most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately afterward. 

Is tear trough filler painful?

During the tear trough filler treatment, patients may experience various sensations depending on their individual pain tolerance and the technique used by our nurse.

Most patients report feeling only mild discomfort or a slight pinch at the injection site, while others may not feel anything at all.

The injection of the filler substance can cause a feeling of pressure or tightness in the treated area, which is generally mild and subsides quickly. Patients may also experience a sensation of warmth or heat around the injection site, which is a normal reaction to the procedure.

Overall, the sensations experienced during tear trough filler treatment are usually well-tolerated and short-lived.

It’s important to note that every patient is unique, and their individual pain tolerance and reaction to the treatment will vary. Therefore, it’s essential to discuss any concerns or questions about the procedure with our nurse before undergoing treatment.

What results should be expected from tear trough fillers?

Most patients will see immediate results from a tear trough filler treatment, with a noticeable improvement in the appearance of under-eye bags and dark circles. However, the final results of the treatment may take several days to a week to fully develop.

After the injections, there may be some minor initial swelling in the treated area, which can temporarily mask the full results of the treatment. As this subsides, the filler will settle into place and the area under the eyes will appear smoother and more youthful.

The duration of the tear trough filler usually lasts for 9-12 months depending on the type of skin and the individual’s metabolism. We make use of the highest quality FDA approved Juvederm® Vollure brand which contains Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the skin but as you age, its production continually decreases so you start to lose the moisturising and plumping benefits it provides. The Juvederm® Vollure (filler) will serve as a non-permanent replacement which will help restore volume to your skin, hydrating and rejuvenating your face. Because hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the skin, the filler when injected into the skin blends harmoniously with the skin.

To maintain the results of the treatment, patients may need to undergo periodic touch-up treatments as recommended by our nurse.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of tear trough fillers required can vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and the extent of the hollowing or sunkenness in the under-eye area. In general, most patients will require just one treatment to achieve their desired results.

It’s important to keep in mind that the goal of tear trough filler treatment is to achieve a natural-looking, rejuvenated appearance, rather than to completely eliminate under-eye bags or dark circles. Over-filling the tear trough area can result in an unnatural or “overdone” appearance, so it’s important to work with a qualified medical professional who has experience in tear trough filler treatment.

Who is a good candidate for a tear trough filler procedure?

Tear trough fillers can be an effective treatment option for individuals who are experiencing a range of issues related to the appearance of the under-eye area. Some of the specific concerns that tear trough fillers can help to address include:

  • Sunken eyes: Tear trough fillers can add volume to the area under the eyes, effectively filling in sunken or hollow areas and restoring a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
  • Dark circles: Filler injections can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes by filling in the hollows that may be creating shadows, and reducing the visibility of underlying blood vessels.
  • Tired-looking eyes: Under-eye hollows and dark circles can contribute to a tired or aged appearance. Tear trough fillers can help to address these issues, creating a more rejuvenated and refreshed look.
  • Eye bags: While tear trough fillers are not typically used to address significant eye bags, they can help to reduce the appearance of minor puffiness or swelling in the under-eye area, and smooth out the overall appearance of the skin.

Overall, tear trough fillers can be a highly effective solution for individuals who are experiencing a range of cosmetic concerns related to the under-eye area. By adding volume and smoothing out hollows and shadows, these fillers can help to create a more youthful, refreshed, and balanced appearance to the face.
