Dark circles underneath the eyes is a very common occurrence as we age. In fact, it has been shown that up to 50 per cent of all women over the age of 30 are concerned about this appearance. It should nonetheless be pointed out that men likewise suffer from the condition. These under eye circles can be caused by a number of factors. Some of the most common are heredity, fatigue, an improper diet, poor circulation and an overall unhealthy lifestyle. Thankfully, there are now numerous methods to treat this condition primarily affecting the tear trough. One of the most successful dermal fillers for tear trough correction on the market today is known as Teosyal Redensity II. Before considering treatment, it is wise to take a closer look at how and why this method works.

What is the tear trough?

Before examining the benefits of under eye fillers, it is important to appreciate why this area underneath the eye can become discoloured over time. The skin in this location is very thin and the underlying capillaries can be seen much more easily when compared with other portions of the face. Any diminished circulation, puffing or swelling is much more noticeable. This very same sensitivity is what allows natural chemicals such as hyaluronic acid to be so very effective.

How can dermal fillers correct under eye problems?

Under eye fillers such as those provided by Teosyal contain a substance known as hyaluronic acid. This acid is a natural compound found within your epidermis and dermis (different layers of the skin). When injected, it will enable the area underneath the eyes to become more hydrated and to retain vital substances such as amino acids and vitamins. There are many different filler options and these will all serve to help strengthen the skin in the affected area. In some cases cheek fillers can work in conjunction with under-eye treatments to give a smooth and balanced effect. These will enable your face to appear fuller and healthier; helping to eliminate “hollowed” eyes and the previously mentioned dark circles.

How is Teosyal Redensity II administered?

This formulation is gently inserted into areas beneath the eye through the use of an extremely small needle. Thanks to the presence of an agent known as Lidocaine within the filler, there is little to no pain. There is generally only minor swelling and after the injection, results can last as long as 12 months.

Why is this dermal filler best for tear trough correction?

We should point out that Teosyal has specifically developed this treatment with the needs of under eye circles in mind. So, it is able to produce more targeted results when compared to other options such as generic cheek fillers. Apart from temporary and localised swelling, there are normally no side effects associated with this injection.

As with everything in life, you should always do your research before considering any of these treatments. Only ever go to a trained and experienced doctor who makes you feel comfortable. Tear trough correction is a wonderful treatment when delivered by the right person for the correct patient. If you would like to learn more about under eye fillers (Tear trough correction), please visit our cheek and tear trough fillers page.
