The under-eye area is a common cosmetic concern, with complaints generally relating to puffiness, dark circles and eye bags. The use of dermal fillers in the under-eye area, or tear troughs, can be treated with dermal fillers which help to smooth the under eye and upper cheek areas.

Under eye concerns? Tear troughs and eye bags
Tear troughs are the small groove that sit below the eyelid and above the cheek. A loss of volume can result in a hollow at the point where the lower eye and cheek meet. Sunken or dark tear troughs are often related to genetics rather than the ageing process. They may begin to become apparent during the twenties.
In contrast, eye bags may present themselves as bulges in the lower eyelid. They may be comprised of either fat or fluid and mostly occur due to the fat in the mid cheek falling away from the lower eyelid, causing the lower eyelid to look more pronounced. In this case, administering filler to the mid cheek area can assist in smooth the look of the cheeks and lower eye area.
However the most common concerns around dark eyes are associated with ageing or looking tired. Dermal fillers can be effectively used to fill and smooth the area under the eyes, helping alleviate dark circles, sunken tear troughs and eye bags.
It is important to remember that everyone is different. At ENRICH Clinic we treat the individual not just the issue.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers are made from a substance naturally occurring in the body. They are used in facial and cosmetic areas to restore volume and contour to the face and skin. The product can also restore the appearance of the skin as it has moisturising and hydrating properties.
How long does dermal filler last? Dermal filler treatment in Melbourne
The duration of the effect varies from person to person and depends on the dermal filler product used. Dermal filler results are not permanent and slowly fade over time. Treatments can be adjusted and altered in order to suit the person’s needs and desired results. Dermal filler results typically last 6-12 months, depending on your metabolism as well as the type of product that has been used. Your doctor will provide specific advice on the longevity of your dermal filler treatment.
