Are you considering getting rid of the bags or dark circles under your eyes because you are tired of people asking if you are sick or tired? Injecting fillers in the tear trough—area between your lower eyelid and cheek, will do the trick for you. The volume of the tear trough area often reduces as we age, leading to the appearance of dark circles around the eye—nothing that an effective tear trough treatment won’t fix.
However, before going for tear trough treatment, you should have a good idea of what it involves. Here are some things to note:
Your doctor will wipe off your makeup, rub alcohol on your face to prevent infection and apply anesthetic to numb the skin around your eyelid. Then he/she will inject the appropriate dose of filler to your under-eye with a needle. Some doctors prefer to use a cannula (a tiny tube)—it distributes the product once it is inserted above your cheekbone. With cannula, bruising is less likely to occur although, it is not as precise as needle.
Immediately after the insertion, your doctor may place ice below your eyelid to reduce swelling.
While there are many filler options to choose from, it is advisable to use hyaluronic fillers like Juvederm and Restylane as they contain reversible substance. It is easy to dissolve these fillers with hyaluronidase and restore your previous look if you dislike the result.
Downtime and results
The whole procedure usually lasts for 15 minutes or less. You will notice the results immediately—may look more filled but in a week’s time, the final result will be visible. If your eyes are still puffed up or bruised after a few days, consult your doctor.
The results of tear trough filler can last between 9 months and 1 year on the average.
The truth is, under-eye filler treatment will hurt. But your provider can make the procedure less discomforting for you by applying a topical anesthetic cream minutes before commencing the treatment. After the numbing cream stops working, your eyes will feel sore for a while. Just go home and get enough rest, you should feel fine the following day.
The under-eye is a delicate and sensitive part of the skin, only submit yourself to an advanced injector. Treating this area may lead to complications like excessive swelling, vascular occlusion or blindness, unnatural look and the Tyndall effect. Swelling and bruising after the treatment is normal, don’t worry about those unless they don’t disappear after a week.
After undergoing a tear trough treatment, you shouldn’t apply makeup or rub your eyes for the rest of the day—you don’t want to invite germs. Don’t do anything that will raise your heart rate either, like working out, as they may exacerbate bruising.
Before injecting tear trough fillers into your skin, an experienced specialist will first find out if you are qualified for the treatment. Fillers may not do much for your under-eye dark circles if it emerged due to hyperpigmentation or a reflection of muscle or blood.
Tear through fillers are also not recommendable for pregnant women, nursing mothers, alcoholics, those allergic to the product and those with an active infection at the injection site.
