Tear Trough Filler

Tear trough filler treatment also referred to as under-eye filler or dermal filler, is a popular cosmetic solution for tackling tired-looking eyes.

 

It is a non-surgical procedure that involves carefully injecting hyaluronic acid into specific areas around the eyes, which works to replace the lost volume brought about through the ageing process.

 

The outcome is smoother, younger-looking, more radiant skin and a reduction in deep wrinkles and lines and lightning of the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Filler do You Use for Tear Troughs?

Teosyal, Juvederm or Belotero is what Dr Wafaa uses in her clinic.

The type of filler will be decided after the consultation and assessment of the overall result needed to achieve. Each of these fillers has a specificity that can target a special problem in the tear trough and its use will be decided on after the consultation. Most of these fillers contain local anaesthetic but also some of them also contain vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients that help minimise dark circles.

How Long Does Tear Trough Filler Last?

Most patients treated will retain their results for 6-18 months. However, The exact length of how long a tear trough filler will last will depend on the individual. Factors such as age, skin type, metabolism rate, activity levels, lifestyle etc all affect the length of the treatment.

What Techniques are Used to Inject Dermal Filler into the Tear Trough?

Dr Wafaa is a high advocate of the Cannula technique. This is where the Tear Trough Dermal Filler is injected into the Tear Trough via a microcannula. An insertion point is made using a small needle around the cheekbone area so that the microcannula can be fed through. This means that tear trough dermal filler can be injected more precisely and carefully into the delicate area under the eye. The cannula technique allows for less chance of bruising and is generally pain-free. More importantly, the cannula technique is much safer especially around this highly sensitive area.

What is the Aftercare Requirements for Tear Trough Filler?

You should avoid massaging the area for up to five days while the filler is still soft. This will prevent any movement of the filler and will keep the finished result looking perfect. Also no exercise, or treatments on that area.

Do I Need Other Treatments in This Area?

During tear trough assessment a thorough consultation and examination will be done to assess the region needed to be treated including the orbital skin. It would be advisable then to have skincare treatment for the area of rehydration or even sometimes anti-wrinkle injection in order to improve the overall appearance of the tear trough region.

Had 1 ml Juvaderm lip filler last week and am over the moon with the results.I’ve had my lips done twice before in different places and found the process extremely painful, however, my experience with Dr Wafaa was almost completely pain-free.She is so knowledgeable and lovely, I cannot recommend her enough!
