A combination treatment of Botox and fillers can reduce the appearance of lines around the eyes.
A ‘tear trough deformity’ is characterised by the visible hollowing under the eye, sometimes creating the appearance of dark circles due to the shadow it creates. Tear troughs should not be confused with under eye bags or malar bags.
Dermal filler can be carefully injected beneath the skin under the eyes to plump out the area, resulting in a more rejuvenated and less-tired appearance.
Belotero or Restylane are the most popular types of filler to inject under the eyes, as it can be injected superficially under the skin helping to avoid the unwanted ‘tyndall effect’ which causes discolouration of the skin. Juvéderm is less desirable to use since it tends to lead to more swelling.
Under eye bags
Dermal filler can sometimes be used to improve the appearance of very mild under eye or malar bags. When injected carefully, the filler can plump out the indented area between the bag and surrounding skin tissue to create a smoother contour.
With extreme precision, filler can be injected into the bridge of the nose to disguise irregularities or bumps. Additionally, it can be added to the upper bridge to help define a flatter nose.
Volume loss can cause the fat pads to migrate lower down the face, making the cheekbones less pronounced. Filler can be injected into the cheeks to create a contoured appearance. This application has an additional benefit of subtly lifting the lower cheek area to minimise creases, sagging and folds.
The 8-point liquid facelift
With ageing, the fat pads on the cheek and the underlying support structure starts to weaken and migrate downwards, resulting in sagging and more prominent cheek lines, loss of cheekbones and nasolabial folds.
The 8-point liquid facelift strategically administers dermal filler into targeted areas of the face to stimulate collagen and restore facial fullness and volume. The 8-point liquid facelift is a solution for those who seek overall rejuvenation and lifting effect and are starting to see premature signs of ageing.
