Our experienced care providers can apply Juvéderm or Restylane tear trough fillers to plump and brighten your aging eyes.
Both products are made of hyaluronic acid (HA), which plumps skin with supple moisture. This gentle ingredient mimics the naturally occurring substance found in youthful skin. Injecting HA into the skin is the fastest and easiest way to improve tired under eyes. The treatment takes less than an hour. Our tear trough fillers provide immediate results!
Perhaps your face has lost youthful volume due to aging. As facial fat pads deplete with age, the shape of your face changes. Fat pads become less full and robust, leading to a gaunt look. Gravity does not help matters. As your cheeks sag downward, hollows start to form below your eyes. At the same time, facial skin becomes thinner due to collagen loss. Since under-eye skin is already thin, to begin with, it is no surprise that under-eye hollows are one of the first signs of aging.
The procedure is quick and relatively painless. Although not required for comfort, topical or injectable anesthesia may be used to numb your skin prior to injection. The filler is placed under your eyes with a fine needle or cannula.
Following the injection, we may gently massage the treated areas to ensure proper dispersion throughout your skin. In just a few minutes, you will be on your way to resume your normal daily routine, with few limitations. Your under-eye area will look immediately fuller.
When you meet with one of our experienced injectors you will have a chance to discuss your aesthetic goals. Together, you will determine if tear trough filler is the best approach. Different dermal fillers may be discussed. We offer top-of-the-line hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvéderm. Each filler is uniquely formulated to address specific concerns. You can proceed with injection after the consultation; However, please keep in mind the delicate eye area is more likely to bruise than other parts of the face. If you have an important event coming up, we advise you to book at least two weeks in advance.
Juvéderm and Restylane tear trough fillers work instantly to restore volume for more youthful skin. The hyaluronic acid gel fills in the under-eye area right away. Depending on the filler, your results can last for several months up to one year.
Our high-end Vancouver tear trough fillers provide beautiful results with no downtime. As a “lunch hour” treatment, you may return to work, shopping, and errands right away. Our patients can easily fix hollow tear troughs in one visit to our Vancouver, Washington location. Before leaving your appointment, we will provide simple aftercare instructions. You may be advised to limit physical exertion and avoid lying down for several hours. We ask that you avoid alcohol for one day after treatment. Give us a call if you have any questions or concerns during recovery.
Minor side effects such as tenderness, redness, or discomfort may occur shortly after injection, but they should fade within a few hours. Please be advised that bruising is a common side effect of tear trough fillers. This is sometimes unavoidable because the under-eye area has thin skin compared to the rest of your face. Bruising after Restylane or Juvéderm typically subsides in one to two weeks. If brushing occurs, you may wear makeup to easily conceal it.
HA dermal fillers are a safe, low-risk treatment for under eyes. We offer two name-brand dermal fillers with a proven track record of safety and efficacy. Our experienced care providers are trained in proper injection techniques to maximize your safety during the treatment. As with all minimally invasive procedures, there is a small degree of risk. We will advise you of known risks prior to injection.
Dermal fillers are considerably less expensive than cosmetic surgery. At The Workman Center for Plastic Surgery, the cost of tear trough fillers in Vancouver is even more affordable with special financing.
