Tear Trough Treatment

Tear Trough Filler Cardiff

If you are stressed out from the dark circles under your eyes and have tried many creams and serums without any success. If you need a lot of found­a­tion to cover the hollow­ness in this area, or if you have a familial sunken under eye region, you are a good candidate for Dermal Filler Tear Trough Lift.

The appear­ance of dark circles under the eye can be due to various reasons – loss of volume in this area, or prom­inent veins under the thin undereye skin, or due to pigment­a­tion, often brought about by excessive rubbing or cleansing in the eyelid region. The role of a tear trough filler injec­tion is to decrease indent­a­tions and increase full­ness so as to reduce the effect of lost volume beneath the eyelids.

We only use Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler called Restylane Lyft Lidocaine in this area, delivered either through needle or microcan­nula. The entire procedure is relat­ively pain­less, and do not have any down­time in most of the cases.

The filler we use can be dissolved if required giving the treat­ment safety and reversibility.
