Tear trough fillers for bags under eyes are designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes, and, for many patients, serve as a non-surgical alternative to blepharoplasty. The procedure can also improve dark circles, which are caused by under eye hollowness and subsequent shadows.
Using a dermal filler, a board-certified dermatologist administers a series of injections to the tear trough area to restore volume and conceal minor fat pad bulges. As a result, eyes look refreshed, youthful, brighter, and vibrant.
So, are tear trough fillers right for you?
Here’s what patients can expect should they decide to undergo this injectable treatment.
What Are Your Options of Tear Trough Fillers for Bags Under Eyes?
In addition to seeking a leading injector like Dr. Tina West to perform your treatment, it’s also essential to select the appropriate filler product.
For the delicate area under the eyes, a hyaluronic acid filler, such as Restylane or Restylane Silk, is an excellent choice. Not only will a HA filler deliver smooth, natural-looking results, its effects can also be reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase.
Additionally, the thin composition of these products helps limit the chance of a Tyndall effect, which presents as a bluish tint under the eyes.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
Once your provider has determined that you are a good candidate for tear trough fillers, he or she will remove any eye makeup and cleanse skin under the eyes.
Next, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the treatment area and improve patient comfort.
Finally, your injector will skillfully deliver the hyaluronic acid gel to the tear trough, with a needle or a cannula. He or she will continue to slowly inject product and evaluate results until the desired outcome is achieved.
