Tear Trough / Under Eye Fillers

Eye Bags, Dark Circles bothering you? Considering correction of Tear Trough Deformity?

The hollow area that begins from the inner corner of your eyes and runs diagonally down towards your cheek is a tear trough. If the tear trough is deep enough, you will notice a shadow under the eyes, this shadow is called “the dark circle.”  

If there is severe tear trough deformity, a lower lid blepharoplasty is required for tear trough correction. If the tear trough deformity is mild to moderate, you may be deemed a suitable candidate for tear trough filler also known as under eye filler

How do I know if I am a suitable candidate for this procedure?

Your first step is to attend a consultation with our cosmetic practitioner. The tear trough is a delicate area of the face. At your consultation, the area would be thoroughly examined by the cosmetic practitioner. If deemed suitable, you will be advised of potential risks, complications, degree of improvement to expect and factors that may affect the treatment such as water retention, diet (salt intake), and sleeping habits especially for side or tummy sleepers, etc. 

Am I going to be in pain?

Rest assured your safety and comfort is our priority. Numbing cream will be applied in the area, the product itself has local anaesthetic in it. This helps minimize any discomfort. 

What actually happens in the procedure?

Before treatment even begins, the area will be cleansed with antiseptic. Marking will be done and the dermal filler will be injected using a blunt needle also known as cannula. This helps prevent risks of puncture of blood vessels that will be bleeding which leads to bruising. The injections are done in small amounts and in precise locations of the skin. Once done, the practitioner will then massage the area for a smooth result. 

How long will this last?

Under eye fillers tend to last between 9 to 12 months.
