Under-eye treatment or tear trough rejuvenation aims to improve the appearance of dark circles and hollows underneath the eye using specific dermal fillers.
The Aesthetics Hub tear trough dermal filler of choice to improve the appearance of dark circles or hollows underneath the eye is Teosyal Redensity II. Like many of the other dermal fillers carefully chosen by The Aesthetics Hub, Teosyal Redensity II is currently the only dermal filler on the UK market with a license to treat this under-eye indication.
How does it work?
As we age, the area underneath the eye weakens and loss of volume from the cheeks can lead to the appearance of eye bags, dark shadows or hollowing beneath the eye; known as a groove. Many patients describe their appearance as “tired” and seek treatments to help refresh and revitalise this area.
Traditionally surgery in the form of “blepharoplasty’ was the only option. However, as non-surgical aesthetic treatments have advanced, The Aesthetics Hub uses dermal filler injections to improve the appearance under the eye.
Teosyal Redensity II is a Hyaluronic Acid, a natural substance that exists within our skin. Unlike the other dermal fillers we use for other areas of the face, this under-eye dermal filler has been adapted for use in the fragile under-eye area, to guarantee natural results without swelling. It contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to help nourish the area. The filler will plump out the hollow underneath the eyes, making it appear flatter and smoother.
Prior to treatment, a consultation is essential to examine the eye area and your medical history to ensure you are given the most appropriate treatment advice. It is important to note that tear trough treatments may not always be the most suitable treatment option for you; a combination treatment incorporating cheek enhancement may be more beneficial, or surgery may be more appropriate.
