These fillers offer a natural look and feel with long-lasting results. They contain a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, a substance natural to our bodies. This process creates a smooth, natural look, with less swelling. The consistency of dermal fillers may also help to minimize the discomfort and swelling that may sometimes occur during the injection procedure.

Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of these furrows. Until recently, injectable collagen was the most widely used available cosmetic filler to improve the appearance of these lines.

FAQ’s

  • What is a tear trough?
    The tear trough, also known as a nasojugal groove, extends from the inner corner of the eye, following a semicircular arc and transitioning to the palpebromalar groove. A deep tear trough can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle below the eye. It also creates a division between the lower eyelid and cheek that is an early sign of aging around the eyes. Patients with deep tear troughs often complain that they look more tired and older than they really are.
  • How is a tear trough treated?
    Many patients prefer the non-invasive approach of a filler, in order to avoid the risks and potential complications of surgery. Treatment with a filler such as Restylane can provide a patient with a long-lasting natural result, often greater than one year, with minimal downtime.
  • Who is a candidate for Restylane?
    Patients who are good candidates often complain of a ‘hollow look’ or dark circles under they eyes; they may also point out enlarging fat pockets in the lower eyelids. Selecting appropriate patients for tear trough treatment requires expert judgment. Excellent candidates have good skin elasticity and adequate skin thickness. The position of the orbital rim to the tear trough is also an extremely important consideration. For these reasons, not everyone is a good candidate for treatment of the tear trough.
  • How long will the results last?
    The results of tear trough treatment vary from patient to patient. However, the results typically last around nine months. In many cases, the results last well over one year.
  • What should I expect after treatment?
    Some minor swelling is expected after treatment. This is usually minor and resolves within a week. Some patients will also develop minor bruising that can usually be covered with makeup. Patients should avoid exercise for twenty-four hours after the procedure to minimize swelling. Otherwise, patients can resume work and normal activities.
  • How much Restylane will I need?
    Most patients only require one syringe of Restylane, but patients with very deep tear troughs may ultimately need multiple syringes.
  • What are the benefits of a Restylane® treatment?
    • Immediately you will discern a smoothing of the wrinkles and folds.
    • Restylane® will impart lift and add new firmness to your skin.
    • With lip enhancement, the results will be a noticeably fuller and more sensuous contour skin.
    • It is not necessary for you to be tested for skin sensitivity.
    • The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing you with a more youthful and invigorated look.
    • When the effect of the treatment begins to diminish, you can replenish the area as needed.
