TEAR TROUGH FILLERS

Tear trough filler treatment consists of the dermal filler being injected into the hollow area that starts from the inner corner of your eye, running diagonally down to towards your cheek. The hollowing of the eye areas occurs due to age, causing the loss in volume in this area. The effects of this volume loss cause under-eye dark circles, hollows and eye bags. In some cases, the dark circles could show as a shadow which can extend along the cheek (known as ‘nasojugal groove’) or towards the outer corner of the eye (known as a ‘palpebromalar groove’).

Dermal fillers can be injected into the hollowing of the tear trough, nasojugal groove or palpebromalar groove to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, brighten the areas to give a fresher looking appearance. The cannula technique is used for Tear trough treatment inserted into the cheek below the eyes. This ensures that the treatment is safe, painless and with minimal risk of bruising or swelling.

TREATMENT PROCEDURE

It is important you tell your practitioner about any medicines or dietary supplements you are taking, some medicines can adversely affect the way the filler works or increase your risk of bruising.

If you are taking supplements such as Vitamin A, C or E, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, fish oils, or some pain killing medicines such as aspirin or ibuprofen, then these can increase your risk of bruising and it may be advisable to stop taking them a few days before your treatment. It is also advisable that you do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment, for the same reason.

It is not advisable to have treatment if you are feeling at all unwell.

Make-up will need to be removed prior to the injections and you will be advised not to reapply it for 12 hours in order to reduce the risk of infection or irritation at the injection sites.

Be aware of the necessary aftercare advice and that your schedule allows for you to follow it.

A full consultation will be conducted with yourself and your Practitioner to discuss your treatment. In the consultation, your practitioner will assess the area of concern, answer any of your questions, show you examples of before and after treatment images and develop an effective treatment plan for you. Areas may be marked to illustrate the overall look you are looking to achieve. After the treatment plan has been confirmed by you and your practitioner, your practitioner will take you through the consent process and take some pre-treatment photographs. All treatment areas will be sterilised and prepped for treatment.

Lidocaine (numbing cream) will be applied or there is an option for a full dental block (numbing injections) to ensure your treatment is totally pain-free. The dermal filler is then injected into the lips using micro-needles or a cannula ensuring minimal discomfort and bruising. The technique will allow your practitioner to sculpt the lips to the desired shape and fullness. In many cases, your practitioner may use a round, blunt-ended micro cannula to deliver the dermal filler to the entire lips. The cannula technique requires an invisible entry point either side of the mouth, the benefits of this technique reduces the risk of bruising from injection sites.

Once treatment has been delivered, your practitioner will massage the areas, re-sterilise the treatment sites and show you your immediate results. Aftercare instructions will be explained thoroughly and provided to you by your practitioner. After all treatments you will be offered a review appointment, usually 2 weeks post-treatment, details will be sent to you in an email confirmation.
