What You Need to Know About Getting Tear Trough Filler Treatments with Restylane
The area between the lower eyelids to the top of the cheekbones, called under-eye circles or tear troughs, begin to thin and hollow with age. The results are sunken areas under the eyes and/or dark circles in the area. What non-surgical options exist to improve this appearance and achieve a more youthful, smooth transition between the eyes and cheeks?
Many creams and topical treatments can make improvements under the eyes. However, if you’re looking for a more significant enhancement, Restylane fillers can be applied under the eyes to add smooth, supple volume.
Here’s what you need to know about tear trough filler treatments with Restylane:
Restylane is the best filler for the tear trough area
Restylane is one of the few hyaluronic-acid based fillers that meet the requirements to be used under the eyes. Most cosmetic experts consider Restylane to be the only injectable facial filler that can be used successfully and safely in the unique tear trough area. Outcomes and results with Restylane are more natural and predictable compared to other fillers.
It’s a finesse treatment that requires experience and a high level of training
Injections in this area need to be performed with careful precision and finesse. The under-eye area is delicate. To look natural and beautiful, the filler must be placed deep under the skin and muscle to avoid persistent swelling and a bluish appearance. Always look for a highly-trained doctor with experience who specializes in this treatment.
The filler is best injected with a cannula
While most fillers can be injected with a fine needle or a blunt microcannula, when you’re having the tear trough area treated, a cannula is best. The cannula is safer and causes less trauma to the skin.
Results last for about 9-12 months
Because there is very little movement in the eye area, results with Restylane in the tear trough typically last for nine months up to a year. Depending on how quickly your body metabolizes dermal fillers, and the shape of your under-eye area, the results may last longer.
Tear trough fillers with Restylane are not for everyone
While this treatment is simple, safe, and highly effective, it’s not appropriate for everyone. If you have mild to moderate sagging under the eyes, and healthy, thick skin, Restylane fillers under the eyes are likely the perfect treatment for you. However, if your skin is very thin, you have more significant bags or excess skin and/or fat beneath your eyes, or particularly deep tear troughs, this treatment is not ideal for you.
