How to Treat Under Eye Trough With Dermal Fillers
Undereye troughs are caused by a reduction of the volume in the area under the eye. As we age, the elasticity and thickness of tissue are reduced, causing the skin over the cheekbones to “slide down,” creating dark circles, wrinkles, and hollows, which can be resolved with carefully injected dermal fillers.
When will a filler be effective for undereye troughs?
The effectiveness of our injectables in Nigeria depends on the cause of the troughs. Fat pad bulges may be genetic or occur with the loss of collagen and elastin as you age. If this is the source of the troughs, a filler can be very effective. Our fillers act not only to rejuvenate the undereye area but have the added benefit of being a remarkable anti-aging technique.
What types of fillers are used?
There are several, but the most popular, especially for people who are new to the overall treatment, are hyaluronic based, as these are reversible. If you are wary and unsure about fillers, you have the option of the filler being dissolved.
At Flawless Skin by Abby, we select the appropriate filler for you, which may be one of the family of fillers by:
Each of the products are formulated for different facial areas. The product selected will depend on your individual condition and the extent of the tear troughs you want to resolve. Because of the delicacy of the eye area, it is critical that you select a highly experienced, expert injector – and you can trust us at Flawless Skin by Abby, the premier medical spa in Nigeria
How is the procedure performed?
- A topical numbing cream will be applied to the area about 20 minutes before the procedure is performed, for your comfort.
- The filler will either be injected with a very fine needle, distributing the product evenly.
- The filler will be injected slowly, in stages to minimize swelling and bruising. You will probably be asked to sit up during the procedure we can better assess the progress of your treatment.
- We may “mold” the filler and gently spread it with our fingertips for best distribution before it dries.
The procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, and the area will be iced immediately upon completion.
What can I expect after the procedure?
The swelling should very mild, disappearing with a day or two, which is when you will be able to see the full effects of the filler. These effects typically last between nine months and a year, although every person is slightly different. One thing never changes – our expert injectors have the skills and meticulous approach that keeps their clients coming back to our luxury spa for treatment, again and again!
