Tear Trough Filler
at Facelove Medispa
You are not tired! But everyone keeps asking why you look so tired? This can be because of dark circles under the eyes, fat pads under the eyes or wrinkled skin under the eyes. We call this area the tear trough. If we fill this area it can reflect the light. After treatment you look rested and well. This is a difficult procedure for many clinics but we are skilled in the art of dermal fillers and will give you honest advice. We perform many of these treatments every month. The idea is that you look refreshed, like you have been on a holiday, not overfilled and puffy.
All our dermal fillers are TGA Approved and dissolvable
Artistic, natural looking results to enhance your best features
Aesthetic treatments performed by highly skilled practitioners
Step by step, holistic treatment plan to achieve the desired result
What is the tear trough treatment?
After your initial 45 minute consultation with a Facelove healthcare practitioner, you may find you can do something about those dark circles under the eyes. Our clients often refer to this problem as making them look tired even when they are not.
It is important to understand that there could be a few reasons for dark circles under the eyes. Pigmentation OR shadows from volume loss OR both are common causes of dark circles. We all lose facial volume as we age and believe it or not, our facial bones also shrink. This creates a look of deflation in the area under the eyes. Sometimes our clients describe this as ’going south’.
This is all a normal part of facial ageing. Thankfully we can treat this ‘going south’ with dermal fillers that last 9-12 months. At Facelove, we only use TGA approved hyaluronic dermal fillers. Hyaluronic dermal fillers are made from a sugar chain and are easily reversed if there is any problem.
It is vital that your dermal filler treatment be undetectable and artistic. Our healthcare practitioners are highly trained in the art of cosmetic injecting. We spend time with you to create a bespoke treatment that enhances your best features and minimises the negative.
How does the tear trough treatment work?
Dermal fillers are applied to certain areas of the face in a sequence that achieves balance and symmetry. After your treatment plan is agreed upon, our healthcare practitioner will administer the dermal fillers. The good news is that they contain anaesthetic for maximum comfort.
You can see the results immediately and as discussed, all our dermal fillers are actually dissolvable for maximum safety.
What can I expect from the tear trough treatment overall?
The aim with this treatment is to minimise the shadows and smooth the under eye area. Remember, this may take a few appointments to achieve and if the dark circles are due to pigmentation you will need to also treat that problem. These treatments shouldn’t be obvious, puffy or make you look squinty.
At Facelove Medispa, we constantly strive for outstanding results.
