What are ‘tear troughs’?
They are the dark ridges that develop below the eyes which are often worse in appearance when tired or dehydrated. These lines are notoriously difficult to treat and have been seen by many practitioners as a big challenge in non-surgical aesthetics.
Can other dermal fillers be used to treat them?
Yes – but not as well, and not for as long. Other fillers are much more likely to migrate with time towards the inner part of the tear trough leading to the appearance of a lump. Teosyal Redensity II doesn’t form lumps.
What’s involved in treatment?
The treatment involves 3 or 4 injections under each eye. Before this, the skin can be anaesthetised using anaesthetics cream so that the whole procedure is virtually pain free. It takes around 5 minutes to complete each treatment.
What’s the treatment protocol?
1 treatment, with results lasting 9-12 months.
