REFINING DARK EYE CIRCLES
A common problem amongst patients is the presence of dark eye circles. These dark eye circles give off the vibe of tiredness and fatigue. Resting and using multiple make up techniques usually still fail to give adequate concealment.
How did these dark eye circles come about?
They are a consequence of our anatomical attachments near the eye which exert a pull on the surrounding structures. With aging, our fat pads near the eye tend to go down, coupled with skin laxity and bone resorption, all these result in a hollowing near the eye which manifests as dark eye circles from differential casting of light. This area is also known as the tear trough.
Can these dark eye circles be treated?
Yes, we use a combination of fillers to bridge the hollowing and lasers to remove dark pigmentations.
How long does the treatment take?
The fillers procedure takes around 30 minutes and lasers can take just 10 minutes.
Are the treatments painful?
No, numbing cream or local anaesthetic will be given to maximise comfort!
After the procedure, how long will the results last?
They can last between 9 – 18 months, depending on individual.
Am I suitable for this procedure?
The hollowing of the tear trough varies across 3 different grades of severity. As long as you can detect a tinge of tiredness near the eyes, you are a suitable candidate.
What will the final effect look like?
You will achieve a smooth transition from the lower eyelid to the cheek region, giving off a fresher look!
