Eyes are considered to be the most expressive part of humans. There are things that eyes can say which words can’t express sometimes. However, with time fine lines, dark circles and deep hollows under the eyes start to develop. The increasing demand for non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures paved the way for tear trough fillers which have increasingly become popular to rejuvenate the eyes. These fillers are a combination of the hyaluronic acid and deconstructing complex of vitamins and amino acids. Once it has been injected it lasts from anywhere between 9 months to a year. Here is all that you need to know about these fillers, to be able to make an informed judgment about them.

Depending upon the need there are 1 to 3 syringes which are used to gain the desired results. You can enjoy the results as soon as they have been injected.

Is the procedure uncomfortable?

The under-eye area is sensitive and thin-skinned, so you are bound to be worried about any possible pain that you might experience during the procedure.

Once the procedure is over the freezing dissipates very quickly. The procedure is extremely quick and comfortable.

How long does the result last?

The recovery period is very short. Swelling is bound to occur within the first two days and which will decrease over time and eventually subside within 14 days after the procedure. Bruising might occur as the under-eye area is extremely delicate and thin-skinned. The chances of bruising increase if you have been on any blood-thinners. For two weeks before undergoing the procedure it is crucial to avoid taking any blood-thinning medicines like aspirin or Vitamin E. You can cover up the bruising with the help of makeup. Sometimes the bruising is hardly even visible.

Are the results of the filler permanent?                   

Hyaluronic acid is used in these fillers. As hyaluronic acid is already there in our body, the body starts to view the filler as the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and metabolizes it over time. Hence, it eventually dissolves and isn’t permanent.
