You may have heard the term undereye filler – but not its more medically-named companion tear trough filler. Be assured though, they are both the same treatment.
Tear trough filler is an cosmetic procedure which aims to banish dark circles or puffiness under the eyes. This is something many individuals notice as they age. It is caused by skin between the lower eyelid and cheek sagging inwards. The dark circles are actually shadows caused by the ‘cavity’ or hollows this sagging motion results in. Tear trough filler works by ‘pumping up’ this space between the lower eye lid and cheek. This has the effect of visibly removing any hollows, getting rid of the dark shadows in turn.
At Omniya Clinic we use dermal fillers produced from hyaluronic acid to address tear trough concerns. Hyaluronic acid is a substance which is found naturally in the body, allowing it to be broken down and absorbed naturally over time. Happily, it means the hyaluronic acid should produce no toxic effects, such as allergies, since the body will recognise the substance as ‘its own.’
In this article we discuss who can benefit from tear trough filler treatment, how it is performed, and the type of results you can expect from it.
