Tear Trough Filler Treatment
This procedure involves injecting a low density dermal filler into the area under the eye known as the tear trough, often also described as the underbags, or sunken area under the eyes. This area with the natural ageing process has orbital fat pad thinning and loss of surrounding bone structure causing the appearance of the hollowed appearance under the eyes. Filling the Sub-orbicularis occuli orbital fat pad (SOOF) with dermal filler leads to immediate results with rejuvenated, fresh looking eyes and facial appearance.
Results last for 1-2 years following this procedure. The procedure itself takes 20-30mins to perform. With local anaesthetic cream applied to the under eyes prior to treatment. It is very minimally painful as the approach is very minimally invasive.
At Tiara Aesthetics we use the latest microcannula techniques for tear trough filler to minimise the risks of vessel damage around the eye. We avoid the use of needles and use a microcannula. This is a blunt tipped instrument which is not sharp and hence not as painful but also glides through the tissue layers of the skin to avoid puncturing any vessels in the area.
This includes a consultation with our team. Discussion of what you are concerned about and looking for. Then medical history and consent form completion.
The procedure lasts 20-30 minutes. Topical local anaesthetic cream is applied 15-20 minutes prior to starting. As a result there is very little discomfort.
The majority of people require no downtime following these procedures and can return to work and normal activities the same day. Some minimal swelling and bruising may occur, lasting a few days.
Results are seen immediately after treatment, with further improvements over 7 days as the filler integrates and hydrates the area. Results can be expected to last 8-12 months.
