Between the lower eyes and the upper cheek is the tear trough, a deep crease that can cast a shadow below your eyes, making you look tired, older or even unhappy. Some people develop tear troughs sooner than others as a result of genetics, and this can be exacerbated by lack of sleep, allergies, dehydration or lifestyle.

Under-eye circles usually become more prominent with age as the face begins to lose volume. Fillers can be used to plump the skin under the eyes, filling in the tear trough area and giving the skin a fuller, tighter and more youthful appearance.

What are tear trough fillers?

A tear trough filler is an injectable treatment that’s used under the eyes to help provide volume and smooth away dark circles and wrinkles. The filler is typically made of hyaluronic acid, although other ingredients may be used. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance that naturally exists in your body, and it hydrates and plumps the skin, giving the skin a youthful, healthy look. When injected into the under-eye areas, hyaluronic acid-based fillers increase fullness and minimize indentations.

Who's a good candidate for tear trough filler?

Tear trough filler treatments are for men or women who would like to rejuvenate the under-eye area without surgery. You might be an ideal candidate for tear trough filler if you meet the following requirements:

  • have mild to moderate sagging under the eyes
  • have healthy, thick skin
  • have a lack of volume under the eyes
  • have realistic expectations for what this treatment can do for you

For those who aren’t candidates for this treatment, there are other options to address the under-eye area, such as laser treatments or surgery.

What can I expect during my under-eye filler treatment?

We will begin with a consultation to examine your face and skin and discuss your aesthetic goals.

Some patients prefer to have a numbing cream applied before the treatment, while others prefer to use ice as an anesthetic to avoid skin irritation that can occur with numbing creams. A very fine needle or blunt-tipped cannula is used to precisely inject small amounts of filler into the areas under your eyes.

While the procedure is very exact and done with care, it only takes a few minutes to complete.

Recovery and results

After your tear trough filler treatment, you can return to work or your usual routine immediately. You can expect some swelling for a few days, but this is usually mild. We recommend avoiding heavy exercise and alcohol for 24 hours. Avoid heat and sun or massaging the area for two week weeks after your treatment.

Results are immediately apparent, and you can enjoy your rejuvenated, fresh and youthful-looking eyes.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients:

At FACE Toronto we are committed to protecting the safety of our patients, staff, and the general public while maintaining our high standard of quality care. As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to our patient care practices in accordance with all provincial and Public Health recommendations. Our team has been working diligently on enhancing our safety protocols to protect the well-being of our patients, team members, and families. We would like to highlight how we are providing a safe environment for you and our team:

  • We will be pre-screening all patients that are scheduled to come into our office for any symptoms of COVID-19. We will ask patients to stay home with symptoms of COVD-19, chronic lung disease, severe asthma, serious heart conditions, and uncontrolled type 1 diabetes. A mandatory Covid-19 consent form must be filled out before arrival to the clinic and temperature checks will be administered upon entering the building.
  • We have implemented a policy for the safety and testing of our staff members including daily screening and temperature checks. We will be maintaining physical distancing as much as possible throughout the office for staff and patients.
  • The timing of patient visits has been adjusted in order to limit the number of people in the office at a given time and to allow for enhanced disinfecting and cleaning protocols we have put in place in between patients.
  • We request that patients come on their own to all appointments unless absolutely necessary. We are not servicing any walk-in patients and not allowing visitors or children to accompany any patient.
  • For your safety all of our staff will be wearing masks when interacting with patients in the office and routine hand-washing is required.
  • We request that you wear a mask. If you do not have a mask, a mask will be provided. Hand sanitation stations will be available upon entering and throughout the office.
  • We are pleased to offer virtual visits as an option for non-urgent appointments. The software we have in place provides appropriate safety and privacy for the interaction.
  • We have increased our in-office cleaning. All areas of patient traffic are regularly cleaned throughout the day. All treatment rooms are cleaned between every patient encounter. All chairs and table tops in the waiting room as well as treatment rooms will be wiped down between patients, including counters, keyboards and door handles. Our credit/debit card terminal will be disinfected after each use. We have also enhanced the air filtration quality in our space to provide patients with surgically clean air.

We are so excited to welcome you back and look forward to continuing to help our patients look and feel their best! We encourage you to reach out to our office now to schedule your appointment. Please feel free to contact our team by phone at 416-479-4244 or email at [email protected]
