Dark circles and hollowness beneath the eyes can prematurely age anyone up to 10 years, and all the concealers, serums, and anti-puff eye masks around aren’t enough to reverse this sign of aging. You might be relieved to know that there are non-surgical solutions to this frustrating problem. At Get Refreshed in Bay Harbor Islands, FL we are proud to provide our patients with minimally-invasive solutions like non-surgical tear trough treatment. Contact our office today to arrange a consultation and learn more!
What Is Non-Surgical Tear Trough Treatment?
The tear trough is the area beneath your lower lid, right above your cheekbone, where the skin is thin and prone to developing hollowness as you age. A classic tear trough treatment uses surgery to lift and tighten this skin, which can be an invasive process as the area beneath the eye is very delicate. Thankfully, non-surgical tear trough treatment skips the discomfort by using special dermal fillers that are designed to effortlessly turn back the clock on your appearance.
What Can Be Treated?
This is a treatment that targets all the problems in the area beneath your eye. Although individual results can vary, non-surgical tear trough treatment could help ease the appearance of:
- Dark circles
- Skin laxity
How Does Treatment Work?
This treatment works by using dermal fillers and is performed by injecting the solutions directly into the area beneath the eye. Dermal fillers used beneath the eye can accomplish many things, particularly boosting skin volume to erase the “sunken” appearance of hollowness beneath the eyes. At our office, we give patients the option of using two dermal fillers.
Belotero is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to restore skin volume. This filler is ideal for patients who have fair or sensitive skin, as the special formula is made with a thin gel that does not cause the trindle effect in patients with thin skin.
Restylane also uses hyaluronic acid to restore skin volume. However, it has more versatile uses, meaning it can be used on other areas of the face, such as the cheeks and the area around the mouth. Restylane is a good option for patients who have multiple concerns and for patients who have medium to dark skin tones.
How Long Do Results Last?
Although each of our dermal fillers typically produces results that last six to nine months at a time, the results do eventually wear off. We recommend that patients schedule regular maintenance appointments to maintain results.
Who Is a Candidate for Treatment?
Prospective patients for this treatment will need to attend a consultation to determine if dermal fillers are compatible with their individual needs. Good candidates for this treatment can include any healthy patient who would like to correct under-eye dark circles, hollowness, puffiness, or skin laxity.
