FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What filler do you use for tear troughs?
Teosyal Redensity II is what we use in our London Clinic. This has achieved beautiful improvements of the tear troughs for all our patients by filling out the hollowness in the area. It also contains vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients that help minimise dark circles.
Most patients treated for tear trough in our London clinic retain their results for 6-18 months.
The exact length on how long a tear trough filler will last will depend on the individual. Factors such as age, skin type, metabolism rate, activity levels, life style etc all affect the length of the treatment.
What technique do you use to inject dermal fillers in the Tear Trough area?
We use a Cannula technique. This is where the Tear Trough Dermal Filler is injected into the Tear Trough via a microcannula. An insertion point is made using a small needle around the cheekbone area so that the microcannula can be fed through. This means that tear trough dermal filler can be injected more precisely and carefully into the delicate area under the eye. The cannula technique allows for less chance of bruising and is generally pain-free. More importantly, the cannula technique is much safer especially around this highly sensitive area.
What is the Aftercare requirements after having dermal fillers to tear trough area?
You should avoid massaging the area for up to five days while the filler is still soft. This will prevent any movement of the filler and will keep the finished result looking perfect. Also no exercise, or treatments on that area.
Do tear trough treatments hurt?
We carry out the treatment using a cannula. This is the safest and most comfortable way of treating the Tear Trough area. The filler we use to treat the tear trough in our London clinic also contain an anaesthetic to make the treatment more comfortable and virtually pain-free.
