TEAR TROUGH FILLER

Hyaluronic acid filler can be placed along the groove under the eye that forms the tear trough. This improves the appearance of the under eyes by plumping, hydrating and reducing the dark shadows that were cast by the hollowness.

​

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in our body. It has the ability to draw in water which makes it a great filler to add volume and hydration. Results will last approximately 6-12 months as it is broken down by the body over time.

​

​At Dr Sabina Aesthetics we carry out a thorough consultation before every procedure to understand your wishes & concerns. This will include a medical history and facial analysis. Prior to the procedure a numbing cream will be applied to reduce discomfort and the area will be thoroughly cleaned. We take hygiene extremely importantly so a sterile technique is used to reduce the risk of infection.

​

Please note tear trough filler is not for everyone. We will assess your suitability for this procedure in the consultation, including these 4 points:

  • Skin thickness- Thicker skin which snaps back quickly when pulled will give better results

  • Hyperpigmentation- Filler will not treat darkening of the skin. However it will improve shadowing that may be cast from hollow under eyes, making them appear brighter. 

  • Fat pad protrusion- Filler is less suitable for those that have very puffy under eyes.

  • Hollowness- A well defined hollow will give better results.
