Once we’ve completed the complimentary skin analysis and have decided on whether or not tear trough fillers are for you, you’ll meet with our Medical Practitioner to discuss the treatment.

Before this non-surgical treatment, we will examine your facial structure to determine where to administer the fillers. Small amounts of filler will be injected into the areas where you have lost volume using a cannula technique. This technique minimizes risk and the potential of bruising.
The treatment typically takes around 30 – 45 minutes.
You will typically see results immediately, however if there is any swelling, it should go down in a couple of days, and you’ll be able to see the full results subsequently over the next couple of weeks as the product attracts hydration.
