How to Get Rid of Dark Circles and Eye Bags Permanently

Get rid of hollow, sunken eyes and dark circles immediately with tear trough fillers

Dark circles and eye bags are one of the most common aesthetic complaints by women and men globally. There are many rumors that changing your diet, getting more sleep and drinking more water will cure both. While these may help, genetics is the most common cause of dark circles and eye bags.  So, what’s the solution? A tear trough filler can drastically change the whole look of your eyes and face, removing under eye circles and eye bags completely. Who is a good candidate for tear trough filler? Any individual with healthy and thick skin can undergo the treatment.

What is a tear trough filler?

A tear trough filler is a minimally invasive, injectable treatment that adds volume beneath the lower eyelids. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler is mainly used for the under-eye areas to increase fullness and decrease indentations. It hydrates the targeted area and promotes facial rejuvenation. A topical anaesthetic is administered to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.After the procedure, you can expect a diminished appearance of dark circles or eye bags and decreased hollowness, resulting in refreshed and younger-looking skin.

What to expect before the tear trough filler treatment

Prior to 24 hours of the appointment, there are certain things to keep in mind. Avoid blood thinners like aspirin or other anti-inflammatories, such as Aleve or Ibuprofen. You should also stop consuming fish oils, multivitamins, and vitamin E for at least a day before the treatment to minimize the risk of bruising.

Aftercare of tear trough filler treatment

This painless procedure involves minimal to zero downtime. In less than thirty minutes, your under-eye area will appear noticeably brighter and shadows and darkness will be gone. Patients may experience redness, swelling, and bruising, which will subside in a day or two.For post-treatment care, steer clear of exercise or intense activities for the next 24 to 48 hours, apply ice to heal swelling, and gently massage lumpy areas with fingers.

How long does tear trough filler last?

You can notice a visible difference right after the procedure. However, complete results can be seen over the following weeks as hyaluronic acid boosts the skin’s ability to build new collagen and elastin.Depending on the type of filler used and how quickly you metabolize it, the results of a tear trough filler should last around 8-12 months. After a year, you can follow up when the effects start to wear off, and hollows become more pronounced.This non-surgical method is the least disruptive form of fillers that doesn’t require any surgery or treatment to remove. Hyaluronic acid in the tear trough fillers breaks down naturally over time. Also, to dissolve the filler after the procedure for any reason or take it down a touch, hyaluronidase (an enzyme found in our bodies) can be used to break down hyaluronic acid molecules and get desired outcomes.
