Tear Trough fillers: Best under eye fillers for younger eyes

As the area under the eyes ages, the sub-skin fat is reabsorbed, usually at a speed that is determined by your genetics. As well as this age-related fat loss, the skin itself in the tear trough starts to age and may start to darken as well giving the appearance of someone who is tired. The troughs have a hollow look and are often noticed by the appearance of dark circles and puffy bags or pockets under the eyes. They can make us look tired or older, though often the tear troughs are hereditary and can develop as early as our teenage years.
Tear trough fillers are useful by filling in the hollow area, tightening the skin and eliminating the wrinkles and dark circles. The fillers for tear troughs we use are specifically designed for the area and have a light reflective substance as well as a cocktail of proteins and amino acids which help promote repair and rejuvenation. The eyes have a younger, fresher look. It is a minimally invasive procedure that instantly gives a lift to the eye area.

What are tear trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers are a minimally invasive treatment that lifts and smooths out the skin below the eyes. The under eye filler is injected into the trough area, under the skin, to restore the volume and smooth out the area. The skin under the eye is immediately revolumed and lifted, wrinkles are smoothed, and dark circles are diminished. Results are immediate, with visibly younger looking eyes. The final result is not often not seen to a few weeks after the treatment once the rejuvenative side of the treatment has done it’s work.

Tear trough fillers are just one of the dermal fillers we do at Fresh Faces Cosmetic Medicine. Dermal fillers are very popular not just for under eyes, but cheeks, nose, lips and jawlines. We use fillers with naturally occuring proteins, which form a gel-like substance that is produced and found naturally in our skin. This substance retains water, and when injected, it gives the skin a plump moisturised appearance. The fillers work to not just add volume and shape, but also encourages the production of collagen in the skin. The results are instantly visible, and there is little downtime. The fillers we use in our office are only ultra-premium brands from Europe and Switzerland, the highest quality for safety and effectiveness.
