Scottsdale AZ & Gilbert AZ

Tear troughs are the circles that develop under the eyes that often become darker and deeper with age.

About Under Eye Filler Procedures

Tear trough fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers injected into the delicate skin under the eyes to reverse bagging and discoloration. Also called under eye filler, they can make dramatic changes to a person’s appearance by reversing the tired, worn look brought by under eye sag.

Under eye filler injections are hyaluronic acid that draws in water to help plump up the skin. The procedure usually lasts for 30 minutes from start to finish.

How to Prepare for Under Eye Filler Injections?

Stop taking pain relievers (prescription or over the counter) a week before getting an under eye bag filler procedure since these thin the blood. It’s also a good idea to avoid foods and supplements with Vitamins A and E, and essential fatty acids. Eat more foods with Vitamin K.

What to Expect From Tear Troughs Treatment?

Your face will be red and swollen right after the treatment; ice packs will bring down the swelling, usually within 24 hours. There may be overnight swelling as water is attracted to the injection region. Results show within a couple of weeks when under eye shadows disappear as the area is refilled and smoothed out.
