Treatment Areas

Tear Trough Filler Treatment Explained

The tear trough area, located between the lower eyelid and the upper cheek, is a common area of concern for many people as they age. The under-eye area can become hollow, sunken, or develop dark circles, giving us a tired and aged appearance. Tear trough treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can effectively address these concerns and help restore a more youthful and refreshed look.

What is Tear Trough Treatment?

Tear trough, also known as under-eye treatment, is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting dermal fillers into the tear trough area. Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are carefully injected into the targeted area to add volume, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of dark circles and hollows under the eyes. The procedure is quick and relatively painless, with results that can be seen immediately and can last up to 12-18 months. 

During the procedure, our skilled doctors will carefully assess the tear trough area to determine the appropriate amount of filler needed. The chosen dermal filler, typically made of hyaluronic acid, is then injected using a cannula. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. By injecting hyaluronic acid into the tear trough, the area is replenished, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

One of the advantages of tear trough filler treatment is its immediate results. Unlike other cosmetic procedures that may require multiple sessions or downtime, this treatment allows individuals to see the effects right away. The injected filler instantly adds volume and fills in the hollows, reducing the appearance of dark circles and tiredness. This quick and noticeable improvement can boost confidence and enhance overall facial harmony.

Furthermore, tear trough filler treatment is a relatively painless procedure. Prior to the injections, a topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to minimize any discomfort. The practitioner will then carefully inject the filler, ensuring precision and accuracy. Most clients report minimal pain or discomfort during the procedure, with some describing a slight pressure or tingling sensation.

It is important to note that tear trough treatment is a temporary solution. While the results can last up to 12-18 months, the body will gradually break down the injected filler over time. This means that you may require touch-up treatments to maintain the desired results. However, the longevity of the results can vary depending on factors such as the individual’s metabolism, lifestyle, and the type of filler used.

In conclusion, tear trough filler treatment is a popular and effective non-surgical procedure for rejuvenating the under-eye area. By injecting dermal fillers into the tear trough, volume is restored, dark circles are reduced, and a more youthful appearance is achieved. With its quick results, minimal pain, and long-lasting effects, this procedure is a much sought-after option for those looking to enhance their natural beauty and regain their confidence.

Who is a Candidate for Treatment?

This treatment is suitable for  people troubled by dark circles, hollows, or deep tear troughs under their eyes. It is ideal for both men and women who desire a more rested and rejuvenated appearance. However, it is essential to consult with a qualified and experienced cosmetic practitioner to determine if you are a suitable candidate for tear trough filler treatment. At White Swan Aesthetics, our qualified doctors undertake all procedures.

What is tear trough filler made from?

Tear trough fillers are typically made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that helps to maintain skin hydration and volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers are FDA-approved and considered safe for cosmetic use. They provide natural-looking results and can be customized to each individual’s needs and desired outcomes.

Benefits of Treatment

The treatment offers numerous benefits for those seeking to enhance the appearance of their under-eye area. Some of the key advantages include:

  • Restoring lost volume and plumpness
  • Reducing the appearance of dark circles
  • Smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improving skin texture and elasticity
  • Achieving a more youthful and refreshed look

These benefits can significantly boost an individual’s self-confidence and improve their overall facial harmony.

Side Effects and Risks of Tear Trough Filler Treatment

As with any cosmetic procedure, tear trough filler treatment carries some potential side effects and risks. However, when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner, these risks are generally minimal. Some possible side effects may include:

  • Temporary swelling and bruising
  • Slight redness or tenderness at the injection site
  • Temporary lumps or irregularities

It is important to discuss these potential risks with your practitioner during your consultation to ensure you have realistic expectations and understand the possible outcomes.

Preparation for Treatment

To ensure a successful treatment, it is essential to follow some pre-treatment guidelines. These may include:

  • Consulting with a qualified practitioner to discuss your goals and medical history
  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications or supplements that can increase the risk of bruising
  • Informing your practitioner of any allergies or skin conditions

Your practitioner will provide you with detailed instructions tailored to your specific needs and ensure that you are well-prepared for the procedure.

How Long Does Tear Trough Filler Treatment Last?

The duration of tear trough filler treatment results can vary depending on various factors, including the type of filler used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle habits. On average, tear trough fillers can last between 12 to 18 months. However, the longevity of the results can be extended with proper aftercare and maintenance treatments, as advised by your practitioner.

Aftercare 

After undergoing treatment, it is crucial to follow the recommended aftercare instructions to optimize your results and minimize the risk of complications. Some general aftercare guidelines may include:

  1. Avoiding excessive touching or rubbing of the treated area
  2. Avoiding strenuous activities and exercise for at least 24-48 hours
  3. Avoiding sun exposure and using sunscreen to protect the treated area
  4. Keeping the area clean and gently applying any recommended topical creams or serums

Following these aftercare measures will help ensure a smooth recovery and enhance the longevity of your results.

If you have further questions or concerns, it is always recommended to consult with a qualified cosmetic practitioner who can provide you with personalized advice and guidance.

Overall, tear trough filler treatment is a safe and effective non-surgical option for addressing under-eye hollowness, dark circles, and sagging. With its natural-looking results and minimal downtime, tear trough filler treatment can help you achieve a more youthful and revitalized appearance, boosting your self-confidence and rejuvenating your overall aesthetic.
