If you’re suffering from a tired and older look, the culprit is most probably your tear trough. It’s that crease between your upper cheek and lower eyelid. But take heart, tear trough fillers can help you.
Tear trough fillers are gel-like substances used under the eyes. They are also known as undereye fillers.
The main purpose of tear trough fillers is to add volume to the tear troughs. By doing this, tear troughs become less prominent. This results in a more youthful and vibrant look.
Tear trough fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid. When injected under the skin, tear trough fillers makes it look fuller and smoother.
In particular, tear trough fillers can be used to solve the following issues:
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, a non-surgical tear trough procedure is great for you.
Tear trough fillers are quite beneficial. Here are their top benefits:
Yes, tear trough fillers are safe to use.
They are also non-invasive. This means that you don’t have to worry about the risks that come with having your fats grafted and repositioned.
Moreover, tear trough fillers come with fewer side effects than surgical procedures.
Everyone experiences pain differently. What’s painful for a patient might not be painful for another.
However, it’s great to know that tear trough fillers don’t cause as much pain as surgical procedures.
Getting the non-invasive procedure done at my clinic causes moderate pain only. It’s because I use local topical anesthesia and the cannula technique.
In general, tear trough fillers can cause swelling, redness, and bruising.
These side effects can be prevented through the following:
The beauty of using tear trough fillers is their short downtime.
You can get back to work within a day after the procedure. Many of my patients go back to their normal lives the day after the non-surgical procedure.
There’s no universal answer to this. How long tear trough fillers last varies from one patient to another.
To give you an idea, tear trough fillers can last for up to 1 year. After that, they need to be reinjected.
Remember, tear trough fillers are temporary. Their rejuvenating effect will eventually wear out.
Getting tear trough fillers may sometimes not be enough. To improve the overall look of my patients, I recommend skin rejuvenation and chip & lip fillers to them.
These procedures complement tear trough fillers. Depending on your face’s condition, only some or none of them might be needed.
