Tear Trough Fillers – Before and After Pictures, Info & Prices
Struggling with sunken rings under your eyes? Fed up and frustrated with dark circles? Always look tired no matter how much you sleep? Tear trough fillers could be the answer!
As you age your body produces less collagen and elastin. These cells are responsible for giving your skin its structure and laxity, and producing the fresh, plump, strong skin we associate with youth.
Although this reduction in collagen and elastin happens all over the body, there are certain areas that it can be more apparent in – such as under your eyes.
Tear trough filler is a non-surgical, aesthetic procedure that uses dermal fillers to plump and rejuvenate the area underneath your eyes.
Dark circles, sunken eyes or thin, crinkly skin under the eyes can make you look tired, stressed or older than your years. Tear trough fillers help combat these signs of ageing, reducing dark rings under your eyes- giving you more youthful, healthier-looking skin under your eyes.
How Does A Tear Trough Filler Treatment Work?
Tear trough fillers reduce dark circles and give sunken eyes a fresher, more youthful appearance by plumping and filling the area under your eyes.
During a tear trough filler treatment, your aesthetic doctor will inject the filler into the problem area using a very fine needle or a cannula. The gel filler is made from hyaluronic acid – a safe and naturally occurring substance in your body. This gel absorbs water and gives the skin under your eyes a healthy, plump appearance.
The treatment is very quick, taking between 15-30 mins and the results are usually visible instantly.
Does It Hurt?
Tear trough fillers are not as painful as they might sound! In fact most people agree that the treatment is surprisingly comfortable.
Because tear trough fillers are a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment, there’s no cutting, slicing or stitching required! The treatment is performed with a very tiny needle and before the treatment, your aesthetic doctor will apply a topical anaesthetic cream which will numb the area. Here at Elite Aesthetics, we use a specialist filler that also contains an anaesthetic – making the whole treatment pretty much totally pain-free!
Tear Trough Fillers – Before And After
How do you know what results to expect from tear trough fillers? Before and after pictures are a great place to start.
With tear trough fillers, before and after photos can help you to see what the treatment can offer you and give you an understanding of realistic results.
When you’re choosing a clinic or aesthetician to complete your tear trough fillers, before and after pictures should play a part in your decision-making process.
It’s important that you make sure to check that the before and after photos the aesthetician shows you really are of their own work – there are some very talented, honest and ethical aestheticians out there – and some not so great ones who are willing to pass off other people’s work as their own too!
How Much Do Tear Trough Fillers Cost?
If you’re considering tear trough fillers as a way to get rid of those dark circles under your eyes and give yourself a fresher, more youthful look then you probably want to know how much they cost?
Cosmetic surgery is often expensive, but non-surgical aesthetic alternatives are usually much more affordable!
Tear trough fillers are no exception. When completed by a professional, qualified and experienced aesthetician, your tear through filler treatment should only cost somewhere between £400-500.
You usually only need one single treatment (unless your condition is severe) and the results should last you between 6-12 months, making them not only safe and effective – but very affordable too.
Are Tear Trough Fillers Safe?
Like other fillers, there are some small risks involved with this treatment – but when performed by a professional and qualified aesthetician tear trough fillers are usually a safe, minimally-invasive treatment.
You might notice some minor, localised swelling immediately after the treatment but this usually resolves within 24-48 hours, leaving you with smoother eyes and a more youthful-looking appearance.
It’s always important to choose a reputable clinic or aesthetician, no matter what kind of fillers or treatment you’re having – but even more so with tear trough fillers!
Because the skin under the eyes is so thin and delicate it’s essential that the aesthetician that’s treating you is professionally trained and knowledgeable if you want to get good results.
What To Look For When Choosing a Clinic or Aesthetician
Unfortunately, the aesthetic industry is not nearly regulated enough. There’s no law that states you must be trained, qualified or insured to perform this type of treatment, so anyone can set up in business and offer tear trough fillers to the public! Because of this it’s very important that you research and choose an esthetician that you know to be qualified, skilled and safe.
So what should you look for in a clinic or aesthetician?
- They Should Be Professionally Qualified – A professional aesthetic doctor will have undertaken training and gained qualifications for any treatments they offer. They’ll be happy to show you their certificates. Certificates should ideally be GMC accredited and your aesthetician CQC Registered.
- They Should Be Experienced – Skill comes with experience and practice, so ideally if you want the best results, then you should choose an doctorwho has been in business for several years.
- They Should Be Insured – Professional aesthetic doctors understand the importance of insurance – to keep both you and their business safe. A reputable clinic will be happy to show you their insurance certificates – be VERY wary of anyone practising without insurance as it could mean the insurers won’t cover them!
- They Should Offer Comprehensive Consultations – Before you undergo any treatment a good aesthetician will do a full consultation with you. During this consultation they’ll ask you what you’re looking to achieve, discuss the treatment options and tell you the full cost for your tear trough fillers.
- Tear Trough Fillers – Before And After Examples – And finally, a skilled and experienced aesthetician will have plenty of pictures of tear trough fillers (before and after) to show you, so you can see the results they are able to offer.
