Under Eye Filler General Information

What Are Tear Troughs?

As we age the junction between the lower eyelids and cheeks (The Lid-cheek junction) becomes hollow and deepens, causing a tired and aging appearance. This hollow area, also known as the “tear trough” often appears darker than the surrounding skin due to the way the light reflects and causes a shadow under the eyes.

For some unlucky individuals, the hollowing of tear troughs and the appearance of dark circles can happen at a younger age. This can be made worse by lack of exercise, stress, prolonged illness, alcoholism, illicit drug abuse, and poor sleep patterns.

Potential Risks & Complications

Under-eye filler treatments have a relatively higher risk of complications if performed by an inexperienced injector who doesn’t know the cannula technique.

• Temporary bruising and localised swelling for a few days.
• Overcorrection (relatively common)
• Tyndall Effect (Bluish discolouration of the undereye skin)
• Some tenderness in the treated area for a few days
• Allergic reaction to filler gel (Reversible with filler dissolving injections)
• Vascular event (extremely rare)

How Is The Treatment Performed?

Dermal fillers work by adding (restoring) volume to the lower eyelid (tear trough) region. Filler gel is carefully injected using a soft cannula after the area is thoroughly anaesthetised with local anaesthetic cream and injection.

This replenishes the lost soft tissue volume, resulting in a fuller, more rested look.

Pain Management

Depending upon the type of procedure being performed, we use high-strength topical numbing cream, inhalation (laughing) gas, local anaesthesia as well as a skin-cooling device to make the procedure as tolerable as possible.

Aftercare Tips:

Avoid Touching:
Refrain from touching or rubbing the treated area unnecessarily.
Ice Application:
Use ice packs to reduce swelling and bruising.
Avoid Strenuous Activities:
Stay away from vigorous exercise and activities for 24-48 hours.
Hydration:
Keep the skin hydrated and follow any additional skincare recommendations provided by your practitioner.

Other Treatment Options To Improve Facial Appearance & Under-Eye Dark Circles

• Skin brightening eye creams
• Laser skin rejuvenation of under-eye skin
• Injectable moisturisers ( Thin dermal fillers to rehydrate skin)
• Facial fat grafting

In my opinion, any Doctor or Nurse who performs tear trough fillers using a needle (instead of a soft cannula) is essentially inserting it blindly in an area which is rich in small vessels and capillaries. This technique almost always result in unsightly bruising and prolonged swelling.

FAQs

Who is not a suitable candidate for Tear Trough Fillers?

Older patients with loose and crepey lower eyelid skin may not be suitable for tear trough fillers. Younger patients who just have dark pigmentation of lower eyelids and there is no real hollowing of tear troughs may not be suitable for this treatment.

What is the most common complication associated with this procedure?

One of the biggest complications of injecting fillers in the tear-trough region using needles is bleeding followed by bruising and swelling which can last up to two weeks. This complication can be minimised by using the soft cannula injecting technique.

What are other complications associated with this procedure?

The lower eyelid is a very soft and delicate area and is prone to excessive fluid retention and swelling. Dermal fillers have the ability to attract moisture and this can lead to excess swelling. At Medaesthetics, we use very soft fillers with the lowest water retention properties to treat the tear-troughs.

What is the “Tyndall Effect” associated with dermal fillers? Is it fixable?

Dermal fillers, when injected very superficially, can cause bluish discolouration of the treated area due to the way they reflect light. This phenomenon is called the Tyndal Effect and is more noticeable in tear-trough and oral commisure area. Luckily, this can be easily fixed by dissolving the filler using Hylase.

At Medaesthetics, our experienced injectors are very aware of this complication and we make sure the fillers are injected in the correct plane to prevent this from happening.

What is the downtime associated with this treatment?

As mentioned above, at Medaesthetics we use effective injecting techniques which means there is little to no downtime associated with this treatment. Female patients are able to reapply makeup and go back to work right after the treatment.

How much does it cost?

Treatment starts from $700 per ml of filler.
