The tear trough refers to the under-eye hollowing that deepens with age, causing the area under the eye to appear sunken and tired.
Large eyebags may also accentuate and worsen the appearance of the tear trough.
Injecting fillers into the under-eye area help to “fill” the hollowing and replace volume loss from the aging process.
Certain fillers like Teosyal RD2 contain additional antioxidants that further help to lighten dark eye circles and rejuvenate the eye area simultaneously.
Results are immediate and by addressing the sunken appearance, the eye area will look refreshed and less tired.
Correcting the tear trough with fillers may also have the added benefit of masking and improving the appearance of eyebags.
Dr Edwin will select an appropriate soft filler specially meant for the under eyes for a natural refreshed look without the formation of lumps.
Using the blunt cannula method, there is only 1 entry point per cheek (away from the eye) to minimise downtime, discomfort, swelling or bruising.
The tear trough filler will be precisely injected in layers to fill up the undereye hollows/tear troughs. Careful placement will avoid the formation of lumps.
Treatment duration is between 15 to 30 minutes depending on the severity of the tear trough.
For deep tear troughs, more than 1 ml of filler may be needed.
Dr Edwin prefers to use the Teosyal Redensity (RD) 2 for the treatment of tear troughs because it is developed specifically for the tear trough area.
Teosyal Redensity (RD) 2 is infused with amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, so it continues to rejuvenate the skin around the eye area, rejuvenating and refreshing the eye area.
Downtime and discomfort are minimal.
By using a blunt cannula, injury to the area around the eye is extremely rare and unlikely.
There may be slight swelling or bruising after the treatment. However, these are temporary and will improve quickly after applying the anti-bruising recovery cream.
Every clinic offers different tear trough treatment options for filling of the undereye hollows. No one clinic is same as the other. If you want to make sure that filler injections are performed safely and effectively, make sure that the clinic is experienced in offering such dermal filler injectables. The clinic should also offer information on the various types of tear trough treatments before proceeding.
