The treatment corrects the dark circles as well as the depression (Tear Trough).

What is dermal filler?
Dermal fillers are made up of a bio-degradable Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our bodies and all living organisms. Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and wrinkles, to restore fullness and volume to the face. As we age we lose fat and our facial muscles work closer to the skin’s surface, which allow smile lines and Crows Feet to become more apparent. The dermal fillers bind to water when injected and temporarily, volumise, soften and hydrate the skin. Dermal fillers diminish over time depending on the individual response to the treatment and they contain no human or animal DNA.
Before we start a topical anaesthetic is applied to the entire area for treatment for 15-30min.
This procedure is performed using a specific blunt needle (Cannula), which helps prevent the risk of puncturing a blood vessel and therefore reduces the risk of bruising.
Redensity II (Teosyal) is the specific dermal filler used in the treatment of Tear Troughs. This products results in little or no swelling after injecting and there is very little to no down time involved in this procedure.
After the dermal filler has been injected to the specific area it is then very lightly massaged to smooth the product evenly, you will see instant results.
Specific post treatment instructions shall be given to you in written format for you to take home and you should not apply makeup to the treated area for 6hrs, to help reduce the risk of infection.
The dermal filler will last up to 12 months, depending on how your body breaks down the product and each individual is different.
There is always the risk of some slight bruising or swelling with dermal fillers and these should only last for a few days.
When NOT to use dermal filler?
: When pregnant or breastfeeding.
