What are Tear Troughs?
Tear troughs are the hollows that can sometimes form in the space below your lower eyelid and above your cheek. Once they exist, these dark circles don’t go away, no matter how many early nights you get. This can leave you looking jaded, even when you’re not, and may affect how you feel about yourself.
What Causes Tear Troughs?
Aside from late nights, too much sun and pollution – tear troughs can occur with age. Some people experience bone loss in the area around the eyes, and this, combined with a reduction in the body’s ability to naturally produce substances like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA), can contribute to the creation of tear troughs and the folds of skin that can form beneath them.
What are Tear Trough Fillers?
This popular cosmetic procedure, also known as under-eye or dermal fillers, involves injecting a gel-like substance containing hyaluronic acid into the area underneath the eye. HA helps your body create collagen, which helps plump up the areas that have lost their volume. The result is the reduction of dark circles and the creases that may have formed beneath the eyes, leaving you looking naturally refreshed.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that is produced naturally by the body. Our skin cells produce HA to help them retain moisture, with a single gram of HA holding up to six litres. When our skin is hydrated, it appears softer, plumper and looks more radiant and youthful, which means lines and wrinkles show less.
Also, hyaluronic acid works for any skin type, including oily complexions, sensitive or break-out prone skin.
What Does Having Tear Trough Filler Entail?
A tear trough or dermal filler is a straightforward process that involves introducing hyaluronic acid into the area underneath your eye using a very fine, flat-headed needle known as a cannula. The procedure can be carried out in around 15 minutes, with the effect immediately noticeable, which is why it is so popular.
How Much do Tear Trough Fillers Cost?
Tear trough fillers start from as little as £400 for 1mm of hyaluronic acid. Dr Wafaa will discuss the amount of hyaluronic acid you may need at your initial consultation.
Are there any Side Effects?
