Most Frequently Asked Questions About Tear Trough Fillers

30 July 2021 by Omniya Clinic

The face is typically one of the most common places for skin conditions to occur, particularly in the area between the lower eyelid and upper cheek. Also known as the tear trough, this area is vulnerable to conditions such as dark circles, bags and wrinkles.

To help combat these conditions, tear trough fillers are a popular treatment. Of course, it’s natural to have questions about the procedure. We’ve come up with a list of answers to the most common questions we get asked about tear trough fillers.

What Are Tear Trough Fillers?

Tear trough fillers are dermal fillers injected underneath the eyes. The main purpose of tear trough fillers is to provide added volume and rejuvenate the skin beneath the eyes.

What Are Tear Trough Fillers Made Of?

Tear trough fillers are often made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound in the body. When this is injected into the undereye area, the hyaluronic acid increases fullness in the area.

What Are Tear Trough Fillers?

Tear trough fillers are suitable for men and women and here are some situations that they may be used:

  • To treat dark circles
  • To treat excess skin beneath the eyes

Tear troughs are deep and more volume needs to be added to the skin.

Are Tear Trough Fillers Safe?

As the eye area is delicate, it’s natural to ask whether the procedure is safe and painless.

Tear trough fillers are a safe procedure that is non-invasive compared to tear trough surgeries. There isn’t any fat grafting and repositioning involved.

Are There Any Side Effects?

While the treatment is relatively safe, there’s always a small risk of side effects developing. Possible side effects are:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Skin discolouration
  • Filler turning into lumps
  • Swelling around the eye

Other complications may develop after 2 weeks, including:

  • Severe swelling
  • Chronic numbness
  • A delayed allergic reaction
  • Infection

If you suffer from any severe side effects, we advise you to seek a medical professional.

Can Tear Trough Fillers Be Removed?

Tear trough fillers can be dissolved if you have a change of heart or if you suspect there is a potential risk once you’ve had the procedure. The hyaluronic acid can be broken down with an enzyme called hyaluronidase.

What Is The Aftercare Like?

Once the procedure is completed, you may experience temporary redness in the undereye area. This should go away after 2 – 3 days.

Some general aftercare tips are:

  • Don’t touch the undereye area for at least 6 hours
  • Avoid intense physical activity for 1 – 2 days
  • Try to avoid sleeping face down

What Is The Cost Of Tear Trough Fillers?

At Omniya Clinic, tear trough fillers start from £400.

How Long Do Tear Trough Fillers Last?

Results last anywhere between 6 – 9 months.
