What is Tear Trough Filler

We understand the pursuit of beauty and the desire to look your best and one of the areas that can dramatically age your face is the under-eye region, specifically the tear trough. This is precisely where tear-trough filler comes into the picture.

What is a Tear Trough Filler?

A tear trough filler is an injectable treatment to address the hollow, sunken appearance under the eyes. Filling this area helps soften this often-tiring look, thus rejuvenating your appearance.

The Challenges With Treatments

Interestingly, the tear trough region has a reputation for being one of the most unforgiving areas when it comes to adverse reactions from hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. Here’s why:

HA fillers have an incredibly high affinity for water. As soon as the filler is injected, it begins drawing in water. This sounds like a positive effect, but remember, in areas where the skin is thin and delicate, like the tear trough, excess water can become incredibly apparent, leading to a bloated, overfilled look.

Precision and Expertise Matter

The injection of a filler in the tear trough region necessitates a deep understanding of the anatomy at play and exceptional skill level. For optimal results and to minimise the risk of side effects during treatment, the filler should continuously be injected beneath the orbital muscle. This area is challenging to reach, especially for injectors without substantial experience.

Revoking The Filler – A Possibility?

While dealing with an excess or undesirable HA filler, it can indeed be dissolved away. But remember, even this process involves utmost precision and insight. The dissolving liquid must be carefully injected throughout the layers of your skin tissue. This ensures the filler comes into contact with the dissolving solution wherever it may be lodged.

Mastery Ensures Success

Getting the tear trough filler right might seem daunting. But fear not! When carried out correctly, with a seasoned professional understanding of the intricate nuances of implementing this treatment, undesired or excess filler can be effectively removed to deliver an aesthetically pleasing result.
