Under Eye, fillers are gaining serious popularity in Western countries due to their quick results and painless procedures. They can help anyone who has volume loss under the eyes.
Under Eye fillers also termed as tear troughs filler would make you look younger and rejuvenated by decreasing the fat loss. Tear trough fillers are hyaluronic acid, a compound made by our body naturally.
Since it’s a natural chemical residing in the dermis of our skin that provides the ultimate youthful glow, the fillers won’t inject anything bad in your body. So, you don’t have to worry about putting anything unnatural and toxic in your body.
What are tear troughs fillers used for?
Under Eye fillers are used to help increase the fat under your eyes. It makes you look younger and more rested. Tear trough fillers work on removing dark circles on those people whose dark circles, which are a result of either volume loss or body anatomy.
Know that either of the two can also be hereditary. What under-eye fillers won’t help with is hyperpigmentation. If you have dark circles that have occurred due to hyperpigmentation then it will be best to consult a dermatologist to devise a treatment plan for the same. Fillers under the eyes may also help with treating puffy eyes, also known as periorbital fat.
How long does the result last?
It is important to remember that, just like how your body breaks down the naturally produced hyaluronic acid, it will break down the ones injected through fillers too. Hence, the procedure is temporary. Some professionals say that heavy fillers might give you an impact that lasts for two years, whereas the lighter ones would stay anywhere around six to nine months.
Honestly, that’s a good time considering the procedure takes anywhere between five to fifteen minutes.
However, it has been pointed out by dermatologists and plastic surgeons that the results also vary from person to person and depend on the rate of the breaking down of the fillers by your body. Here is a fun fact: Hyaluronic acid stimulates collagen synthesis in your body! That’s a double advantage, from a single procedure!
Consult an expert for the procedure
Tear trough fillers require accuracy and precision. Thus, the most important thing to remember is to go to a professional who has years of experience in the field. Your under eye area is sensitive, and you don’t want any filler to be injected in your blood vessels (it may result in blindness!), it is best to go to someone who is the best in the field.
Make sure to check that they are board-certified as per your geographical location and that they have received proper training. They must know each little detail about facial anatomy and have done multiple procedures in the past. Make sure to look at the before and after photos of their clients before deciding to go ahead with the procedure.
If you love your skin, and if you would like to stay healthy, do not compromise on getting it done by some aesthetician, beautician, or at a medical spa. The results might be disastrous and you will regret spending your money.
Make sure to consult with your doctor before undergoing the procedure. Have a thorough discussion with them regarding the little details, like the kind of fillers they use, the time duration of the procedure, the involved amount of pain, how long would it last.
Don’t shy away from discussing any doubts or fears with your doctor. It is your body and you have the right to know every little thing before making a decision. Here is a tip: Before consulting with your doctor, make sure to do your research, and write down all the queries that you’d want to talk about.
It would be best to ensure that the fillers you get are hyaluronic acid and not anything else. Since it is produced in our body naturally, your body will not be resistant to this chemical. Moreover, if you don’t like the results of the procedure you can get it removed with another injection of hyaluronidase.
Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that breaks down the hyaluronic acid in the fillers under your eye. Give it two weeks, and your eyes will return to how they looked like before the procedure. In all probability, your doctor might ask you to come for a follow up after the first round of fillers. And, in case they notice any puffiness or abnormalities, you will most probably be given an injection of hyaluronidase to even out the skin.
The best part about getting under eye fillers is that the results are quick, immediate, and instant. You will be able to notice the before and after difference right after the procedure! Although, it might take up to a total of two weeks to a month for the fillers to settle down under your eyes.
What about the side effects?
The procedure is almost painless as many professionals have started using a cannula instead of a needle these days, there are chances of a few side effects. There might be bruising, or minor swelling. Moreover, the areas under your eyes might turn bluish or pinkish.
There is also a slight tendency of the fat not evening out under your skin. Either, the side effects would naturally die down with passing time, or you might get an injection of hyaluronidase after consulting with your doctor to get the results quickly.
In conclusion, it is important to emphasize that, if at all, you decide to go under the procedure of getting tear trough fillers, it is important to go to a trained and experienced professional. Sure, the procedure might be heavy on your wallet but it will be worth it.
