Tear Trough Filler
What exactly is this treatment?
Tear Trough Filler Treatments, using Dermal Fillers, are a relatively new treatment used to improve the appearance of dark circles or dark hollows underneath the eyes which appear in some. These features can be caused by a weakening of the orbital septum (a membrane under the skin) and a loss of soft tissue in the cheek area. These features can also lead to the appearance of lower eyelid fat pockets if fat herniates through the membrane. By injecting a dermal filler into the deep part of the tear trough, volume can be replaced and the appearance of these deep circles/hollows can be visibly reduced.
Why should I have this treatment?
If you suffer from dark shadows or hollows under the eyes (also known as ‘tear trough defects’), tear trough filler treatments using dermal fillers could be an effective treatment for you. The procedure involves a dermal filler product being injected into the deep part of the tear trough, which works to ‘plump out’ the hollow underneath the eyes, making it appear flatter and smoother.
How do I know if this treatment is safe and right for me?
At Appearance Based Medicine Ltd., Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will only carry out any non-surgical aesthetic procedure (including the administration of Dermal Fillers) following a detailed one-to-one consultation with a patient, enabling her to accurately assess whether a treatment is appropriate given a patient’s unique medical history, skin condition and expectations.
During your consultation, you will be given comprehensive information about the procedure, potential side effects, and any pre- and post-treatment advice. You will also be given the time to decide whether or not, given the information you have received, you would like to proceed with any recommended procedure.
As with any injectable aesthetic treatment, there is a small risk of a patient experiencing side effects post-treatment with Dermal Fillers. Many patients experience minor bleeding at the injection site, often followed by temporary and minor swelling, bruising, redness and soreness of the treatment site. However, these symptoms are usually not serious and should resolve on their own. Clare McLoughlin RGN INP will ensure that you are given comprehensive advice and support post-treatment to ensure that your treatment is as safe and effective as possible.
How does this treatment work?
The procedure involves a Dermal Filler product being injected into the deep part of the tear trough. The filler will plump out the hollow underneath the eyes, making it appear flatter and smoother. Topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area before the injection if required, although many products come with local anaesthetic within the formulation.
Recovery time is minimal – you can go right back to work after the procedure. Healing time is also minimal and no special aftercare is required, aside from normal hygiene precautions.
