This treatment has no side effects (only mild swelling and tenderness), no downtime and the injections only cause mild discomfort which is hardly felt if the skin is numbed by topical anesthesia before the procedure. The desired results can be achieved within a month as the skin healing process is complete. Although visible changes can be seen after the first session, sometimes more sittings may be needed with a spacing of 3-5 weeks to get the best possible outcome. The effect of these injectables usually is expected to be in between 6-12 months.
Dermal fillers for tear trough hollows or lower eyelid dark circles:
With age, the facial skin loses its collagen and becomes saggy and flat. Dermal fillers are injectable substances that can help restore the lost collagen and rejuvenate the under-eye zone. They can add volume to the skin when placed subcutaneously or supraperiosteally, and smoothen the tear trough deformity. This treatment also lightens dark circles, improves skin quality, and hydrates it from the inside. The most commonly used dermal filler for under-eye areas is hyaluronic acid-based. This filler makes the skin plump and smooth by supporting new collagen production which results in skin scaffolding.
The procedure involves the use of topical anesthetic to numb the tear trough area followed by injecting filler (a gel-like substance) which is molded into the desired shape by massage. It is a quick, virtually pain-free treatment that provides natural-looking, instant results. Although there are noticeable, subtle changes seen immediately after injections, but the outcome is visible after around 2 weeks as the filler ingredient settles. The desired results can last up to 12 months or longer. As it shows a temporary effect on the skin, it is an advantage as people who are not satisfied with the results can dissolve the fillers.
