Tear Trough (Under Eye) Filler
Starting at $550.
Dermal filler can be injected under the eye to fill the indention called the “tear trough”. The most popular filler used for under eyes is Belotero Balance ($550). Tear Trough (under eye) filler lasts nine months or longer. The tear trough becomes more pronounced as we age because we lose volume in the cheek, which supports the eye. If you have volume loss in your cheeks, that area will be assessed prior to treating the tear troughs. Patients with sagging or thin skin, fat pads “bags”, or puffiness due to allergies may not be candidates for tear trough (under eye) filler; other treatments such as surgery, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Ultherapy (Skin Tightening), or lasers may be better options.
WHAT TO EXPECT :
Prior to your injections, you will meet your provider for a comprehensive consultation. You will be provided a customized treatment plan that maps out where and what products are best for you.
During your appointment, before photos will be taken and a topical numbing cream will be applied. When the injection process begins, ice and other distraction techniques are used to ensure the most comfortable experience possible. Typically, it takes 15-30 minutes to complete your injections. Results are immediate and the reveal is our favorite part!
After your injections, you may experience bruising, swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection site that may last from 24 hours to two weeks. Icing the area will help improve these side effects. You will be given post care instructions to take home and we will schedule a follow up appointment in two weeks to assess your results.
