When dark circles form in the under eye area it can leave us looking older than we actually are. When this happens, the first question we often ask is how do I get rid of them? Well, It might be time to consider tear trough filler treatment.
Dermal fillers are popular for restoring volume in the cheek area and marionette lines (between the mouth and chin). But, did you know that more and more people are choosing under eye fillers in Bradford to treat dark circles and lines around the eyes?
At MySkyn, our team are experts in providing dermal filler treatment. With that in mind, we are here to answer some burning questions around under eye fillers including how long they last.
Why do I get dark circles?
You may have heard that we can inherit dark circles from our family. This can be true. Sometimes, genetics mean we have eyes that are set further back in their sockets. As a result, this can cast shadows underneath our eyes.
Genetics can also affect our levels of collagen production, which is a protein that helps hydrate, strengthen and keep the skin supple. Collagen also helps with minimising the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
We also lose collagen through the ageing process, which is why we often see our skin becoming saggy and more fragile. When the skin becomes thinner, we start to notice visible blood vessels, which make our eyes look darker.
Dark circles can also form as a result of lifestyle factors. If you have poor sleep patterns, don’t drink enough water or overexpose yourself to the sun, you can develop dark circles.
What are the benefits of dermal filler treatment under the eyes?
Tear trough filler treatment can help refresh the under eye area. At MySkyn, we use hyaluronic acid fillers to treat dark circles. This type of dermal filler helps to hydrate and plump the skin under your eyes. Besides reducing dark circles, tear trough fillers can:
- Freshen up tired eyes
- Reduce lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Help with adding volume to hollow under eyes
- Provide natural looking results
More about hyaluronic acid fillers
The key ingredient of most dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar found in your skin and broken down within the body. Hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to attract water, which helps to hydrate your skin from the inside out. This helps to reduce sunken eyes and freshen the eye area.
Are the results of under eye fillers permanent?
You are likely to instant results from your tear trough fillers. Although you will see immediate results following your treatment, the full results may take up to a month to show.
Typically, you can expect the results of your dermal filler injections to last from six months up to a year or 18 months. How long your results last differ from person to person. Factors such as your metabolism and the type of dermal filler used can affect your results.
At your consultation, Dr Qureshi will talk you through the tear trough filler treatment. This will include which dermal filler may be right for you and how much filler you are likely to need. This will ensure you get the best and most natural looking results from your treatment.
Are tear trough fillers safe?
Under eye fillers are a safe and effective way to treat the effects of ageing around the eye area. The tear trough area is a sensitive part of the face, which means that it can bruise easily. Some patients do experience a slight bit of swelling or bruising following dermal filler injections, but this usually goes down after a few days.
You can be confident in the hands of our expert, Dr Qureshi, who is highly skilled in facial aesthetic treatments. You will also have a full facial assessment prior to tear trough treatment to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for fillers.
