What is a Tear Trough?
Vampire Tear troughs, often known as eyebags, hollows beneath the eyes, or dark circles, are caused by a volume deficit in the under-eye area. Even when we’re well-rested, this will produce a groove in our face, giving it a haggard, sickly appearance. Filler injected into the appropriate fat pads beneath this hollow can help rebuild the area and offer our face a more refreshed, healthy, and softer appearance. A tear trough is a deep groove on the cheek that goes from the bottom of the eyelid to the top. It may cast a shadow behind your eyes, making you appear tired. Some people believe that having tear troughs makes them look older. Vampire Tear troughs are a genetic trait that some people inherit. Others’ tear troughs grow more visible as they become older. This is due to the fact that as you age, your facial tissues lose volume.
The objective of a tear trough filler is to reduce the depth of a tear trough. A qualified medical practitioner injects a dermal filler into the area, making the skin appear larger and tighter. It’s a non-invasive method for face rejuvenation.
What is the purpose of a Tear Trough Filler?
Tear trough filler is an injectable therapy for the tear trough. It is used to add volume to the area behind the eyes. Although numerous components may be used, hyaluronic acid is the most often used substance in this area. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like material found in the human body.
Is it safe to use Tear Trough Fillers?
Fillers for tear troughs are generally thought to be safe. They’re also less invasive than tear trough procedures, which usually need fat grafting and repositioning. The effects of tear trough fillers, on the other hand, are just temporary. They’re only good for a year or so. Treatments must be repeated in order to get long-term benefits.
Tear trough fillers are frequently used in conjunction with other procedures such as botox, laser resurfacing, fat grafting, and fat repositioning.
Individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding or attempting to conceive and those who have a lidocaine allergy should avoid using under-eye filler. It’s also not a good idea to inject in this area if it’s infected, so consult your physician about the best course of action in this instance. This treatment should also be avoided if you are prone to blood clotting or have keloid scarring.
Vampire Tear Trough Treatment
A Vampire Tear Troughs treatment will rejuvenate and freshen your eyes. Tear troughs can be seen near the inner corners of your eyes, just next to your nose. This facial feature generally hollows out as you get older, making you look haggard and more aged. The decrease of fat in the area causes hollowing. Taking care of the tear trough area necessitates a steady hand, skill, and the expertise of a trained specialist. The thickness of the skin, its color, the underlying bone structure, and the absence of fat pockets all play a role in reducing the appearance of tear troughs in this delicate area.
It’s normal to use PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to cure tear troughs. Because PRP is generated from your blood, there’s little chance of an allergic reaction. Furthermore, concentrated blood plasma or platelets carry healing growth factors and are the blood component that initiates the coagulation process. We take a tiny sample of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets or proteins that carry the healing growth factors. The concentrated platelet serum is fine-tuned before being injected into the area beneath the eyes. It takes anything from 30 to 60 minutes to complete the therapy. You may need further treatments to achieve your desired outcomes.
How does the procedure work?
Before proposing tear trough fillers, a qualified medical practitioner will evaluate your lower eyelids. They’ll also talk about the texture and thickness of your skin. They will also determine which sort of dermal filler is best for you. Your surgery will take place at a doctor’s office. Here’s what you may expect:
A medical professional disinfects the skin to prevent infection. To prevent bruising, apply a topical anesthetic to the area or apply an ice pack to your lower eyelids. By numbing the area, the risk of bruising is reduced. They then use the filler to build a syringe. The syringe is linked to a blunt or sharp needle, depending on their preference. The filler is injected behind the skin of your lower eyelid.
When the filler is injected, the needle is gradually withdrawn. They gently massage the area to disperse the filling. The procedure is repeated under the other eyelid.
How much time does it take?
Vampire Tear Troughs Treatments typically last 30-60 minutes. The initial step in your therapy will be to give you an anesthetic to help you relax. You should tell your doctor if it hurts because it should be ‘uncomfortable’ or unusual, but not painful. Excessive activity, saunas, sunbeds, and direct sunlight should be avoided for the next 24 hours after your treatment. You’ll also have to wait about two weeks between facials.
When can I expect to get results?
The benefit of tear trough fillers is that you can usually see an improvement right after treatment. The adverse effects may take a few days to fade, following which you should see an even more significant improvement.
What must I do on the aftercare and results?
You will be able to return home once the operation is completed. Bruising, redness, and swelling are common side effects. These adverse effects usually fade after 48 to 72 hours. The region beneath your eyelashes will immediately appear fuller. According to anecdotal reports, it can take 1 to 2 weeks to observe the complete results.
Follow the post-treatment instructions carefully, which usually include the following:
- Avoid strenuous activities in the next 24 to 48 hours.
- During the first 48 hours, apply ice to the affected area.
- Avoid sleeping on your stomach.
- Gently massage any lumpy places with your fingers.
