Tear Trough Treatment
The area between your lower eyelid and upper cheek is known as your tear trough. As you get older, this changes in appearance and can become deeper, longer and more shadowed. Although this part of the normal ageing process, it can sometimes give the impression of fatigue and sleeplessness.
Tear trough rejuvenation is a specialised non-surgical aesthetic treatment performed using a hyaluronic acid injectable gel. This replaces lost volume and at the same time retains skin hydration. Your practitioner may also suggest a treatment plan that includes strengthening the upper cheek to support the area as well as treating the tear trough itself for the best cosmetic result.
The quality of the skin in this area is another factor to consider. You may be recommended a treatment to improve the quality of your skin ranging from a topical treatment to laser treatment.
What are the benefits of tear trough treatment?
After the treatment the under-eye area will appear less sunken, giving you an instant well-rested appearance. In the following days, you may notice that the skin under the eyes is more hydrated and that the lines are softened. The dark colour often associated with under eye circle may also improve and appear less prominent.
What is involved in tear trough treatment?
During a consultation, one of our aesthetic practitioners will examine your face. They will determine if you are suitable for this procedure. If so, photos will be taken before the procedure.
The skin will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution and the practitioner will mark the areas to inject. A topical local anaesthetic cream will be applied to your skin. It will be left on for about 20 minutes.
After the local anaesthetic is removed the practitioner will start injecting using a blunt cannula. This helps minimize the risks of bleeding and bruising.
Photos will be taken after the procedure, allowing the practitioner to compare the results.
