Male Tear Troughs
A part of the ageing process consists of changes in the under eye area. The ageing modern man can appear more haggard than he actually is, thanks to the natural toughness of male skin. Stress, lack of exercise, toxins and poor sleeping patterns can create ‘tear troughs’ under his eyes as he ages. These are the indentations under the eyes, running from the inner eye region to the upper cheek, that can make us appear tired and unhealthy as well as having an ageing effect.
These so-called “dark circles” do not affect just ageing men, as the condition can be present from an early age.
Fortunately, a younger and fresher appearance can be achieved by applying soft fillers to this area creating a subtle but effective result. Tear trough fillers are used in this non-surgical procedure in order to plump up the area and produce subtle but very effective results. This procedure will improve the appearance of dark circles, eye bags and hollowing by providing noticeable improvements in the appearance of your under eye.
Before the procedure starts, we will use a topical cream to numb the area in order to ensure your comfort. Relatively simple and painless, the procedure takes around 30 minutes and consists of tiny amounts of hyaluronic acid and local anaesthetic being injected between the rim of the eye and the cheekbone. This will leave you looking fresher and younger.
The treatment will be performed only by highly experienced and trained specialists in aesthetics as the eye area is particularly sensitive. The procedure is virtually painless and with almost no downtime. Some minor swelling and bruising may occur but this will subside in 1 – 2 days. Results can be instantaneous with the effect lasting between 12 and 18 months. However, the full results will be visible after 2 weeks’ time as fillers need some time in order to be integrated with the surrounding tissues.
The treatment is also entirely reversible, therefore if you are not happy with your results we can use an enzyme in order to remove the effects of the dermal fillers.
