Tear Trough Treatment
Reasons for Tear Trough Treatment
The tear trough area is the space between the lower eyelid and upper cheek, which as part of the ageing process, may alter becoming longer, deeper and of a more darkened appearance. Patients seeking this treatment may feel that their under eye area can give the impression of looking tired and appearing less youthful.
Tear Trough Treatment
Treating tear trough under eye area is safe and effective when an experienced Advanced Aesthetic Practitioner performs the procedure. A dermal filler product such as Juvederm is used to achieve a soft and natural correction to under eye hollows. The aim of the tear trough treatment is to dramatically reduce the appearance any dark hollow under eye area by introducing volume from the product to plump out and volumise.
At Liverpool Cosmetic and Aesthetic Clinic, our highly trained Doctors and Cosmetic Surgeons take time to understand the requirements of our patients and provide expert advice on tear trough treatment.
What results can be expected?
The tear trough dermal filler treatment normally takes approximately 45-60 minutes, with your Practitioner using local anaesthetic cream to numb the area prior to treatment. The results of the tear trough treatment are immediately visible once the dermal filler is administered, as this replaces lost volume to the under eye area. We recommend selecting a qualified Cosmetic Surgeon or doctor to perform tear trough dermal filler injections, as this requires advanced aesthetic experience to minimise risks. There is no downtime, you can return to work the same day and resume all your regular activities, however the area may be swollen and bruised for up to 1 week post treatment.
How long does the tear trough filler treatment last?
The average duration of the effects of tear trough treatment using a dermal filler such as Juvederm is approximately to 12 months. The Hyaluronic acid in the product, which is also a natural substance found in the body is broken down gradually over time.
