Dark Circle Treatment – Tear Trough Filler
Published on: January 13, 2020
The eyes are what people notice about us upon first glance and they can give away so much about us, from our general health to our emotional wellbeing. As when we get older, our eye sockets widen, leading to a sunken, hollow appearance and dark circles can appear. Fortunately, if you are one of the many people that experience dark under-eye circles, we have a superb treatment for you using dermal fillers in the tear trough area, here at London Cosmetic Clinic.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that contain a unique ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA) which occurs naturally within the body and responsible for hydrated, plump and youthful-looking skin. When carefully injected in specific areas such as the under-eye (tear trough) area, dermal fillers can plump out any hollows, lift-up and support the skin and disguise those dark circles which can leave us looking tired and worn out.
For a treatment to be safe and effective dermal fillers must be expertly administered by a medical professional and Dr Johnson is highly-qualified and well versed in this treatment. Using advanced techniques ensures that the delicate tear trough area is treated with respect, obtaining superb results that you’ll love.
To know whether you are suitable for a tear trough treatment using dermal fillers for dark circles you will need to attend a pre-treatment consultation with Dr Johnson at our Harley Street clinic, so she can check your medical history, assess your unique facial concerns and offer you the best advice for this treatment.
A treatment using dermal fillers for dark under-eye circles does not hurt as many dermal fillers now contain Lidocaine anaesthetic. In most cases, a cannula will be used to inject the dermal filler into this area as they minimise bruising and the risks that needles would offer in this area. You may feel a little tightness or tugging in the area but this should not hurt at all. At London Cosmetic Clinic, your comfort is our priority and we offer topical anaesthetic cream prior to treatment, to minimise any discomfort.
After your treatment and as with any injectable procedure, you may experience some swelling, slight bruising and perhaps tenderness in the injection site. This is quite normal and will subside quickly. You can use ice or Arnica cream to calm the area and camouflage any slight bruising with a specially formulated mineral make-up. Dr Johnson will advise you on all aftercare so that you know how to maximise a swift recovery, at home.
Dark circles don’t have to be something you have to cover with thick and heavy makeup to disguise. They can be minimised with a treatment of injectable dermal fillers in this area, for long-term, beautiful results.
