Banish Dark Circles – Dermal Filler Eye Treatment

before and after fillers tear troughsDark circles under the eyes are a very common concern. 

If you suffer from dark circles, instantly you look older and tireder than you are. Less alert, interesting and vibrant.

This can affect how you feel about yourself, impacting on self-confidence.

It can also affect how others see you and relate to you, thinking you’re unhealthy, unwell or upset.

There are not many good connotations to having puffy or hollow dark bags under the eyes.

Can I Cover Dark Circles With Makeup?

Using a concealer is the first step most people take to trying to conceal dark circles. Options with light reflection as well as pigment are best. This can help to some degree, but there are issues to consider:

  • Concealer might not last all day
  • It could flake off or melt into creases
  • If the colour is too light or too dark, it doesn’t look natural
  • Even a good concealer that blends well to skin colour cannot erase depressions or puffiness

So for more severe dark circles, more and more clients are having advanced dermal fillers in a procedure known as Tear Trough Treatment.

What is Tear Trough Treatment?

This is a sophisticated use of dermal fillers to restore a more youthful look in the eye area.

Restoring lost volume can reverse the older/tireder look that ages the eye area and makes you look so tired.

Our Aesthetic Clinicians address this area using a hyaluronic acid-based injectable dermal filler, which is carefully and precisely injected between the lower eyelid and cheek. This is smoothes out the hollows in the area, making it appear softer and less noticeable. The addition of volume obscures the darkness too, which is actually caused by tiny veins and capillaries being so near the surface of delicate under eye skin.

Results are instant and last around 2 years with long-lasting Juvederm Volbella, a top brand dermal filler with high quality and excellent patient satisfaction ratings. After a couple of years, results will wear off, but the procedure can be repeated with any adjustments as required.
