Frequently Asked Questions

What are eye bags?

Before we look at how we can treat eye bags, let us look at what they really are. Under eye bags are caused due to the protruding of the fat that usually sits behind the eye.

There could be many possible reasons for this, from genetic to ageing to lifestyle habits like inadequate sleeping. They can also appear at times when we are tired and unwell. In some cases, these could be the result of certain allergies or dermatitis too, and these are usually accompanied with redness and itching.

Eye bags could also be caused due to tear troughs under the eye bags. A tear trough is a slight depression along the path that a tear runs down your face from the eye to the cheek.

Which are ligaments that pull down the skin beneath the eye, causing the fat pad below the lower eyelid to bulge out and creating a puffy, under eye bag.

How can we treat them?

There are both surgical and non-surgical options available for this treatment. Most people achieve good results without surgery, and don’t need to go in for surgery. Under eye bags can often be completely managed non-surgically, with dermal filler injections in the tear trough area. An initial consultation will help to determine if you need to go down the surgical route or not.

Dermal fillers for treatment of eye bags

Dermal fillers are usually made using a substance naturally found in the skin, which makes it easier for the skin to accept the fillers. This procedure involves injecting dermal fillers into the skin at strategic points on the face. These fillers are very effective in filling up sunken area beneath the lower eyelids, or even the trough area so that the skin between the lower eyelid and the cheek evens out – giving an instant youthful appearance. These are also quick and usually take 30 minutes or less.

If you need to get your tear troughs filled, then you need to ensure that you are in expert hands as there could be multiple treatment modalities involved for dark circles, eye bags and hollowness under the eyes. When the hollow area is filled up with the right filler, your face will instantly look different. This may not improve skin texture or under eye wrinkles. In cases like these, PRP can be effective in stimulating and regenerating periocular skin.

Sometimes, “under filling” is better than “over filling”, as the latter can result in a tired looking appearance that is totally avoidable. But you need an experienced cosmetic doctor to be able to discern the right amount of filler, and you can always count on our team at Nitai for trained and proficient treatment.

What are the risks of tear trough filler?

Dermal fillers are considered to be quite safe (with a well understood risk profile). At most, there could be very slight bruising / swelling at the spot, and these are quick to heal.

How long do the results last?

The best part of using dermal fillers for tear troughs is not only the fact that it is a super quick procedure that requires no downtime, but also that the results last for as long as 12 months.

How do I sustain the treatment results?

No matter what kind of treatment you end up going for, it is important to keep the delicate skin around the eyes well-nourished and moisturized. And we recommend using Aspect Dr Eyelift before and after the treatment to keep the skin nourished. We also recommend Eye Doctor eye cream to help with improving skin texture and colour.
Revlight laser helps to break up pigmentation in the under eye area. Sunscreen and sunglasses are also important to prevent dark circles. Things like these not only to optimize but also sustain results.

Dermal filler injections are a great way to achieve more uniformity in your facial skin. Reach out to us to know more!

Why does one develop tear troughs?

As you age, the skull undergoes some physical changes. The cheekbones reduce in size and the eye sockets become larger. Therefore, the area around the eyes receives less cushioning. Also, your facial skin loses its fat deposits which give it a proper shape and structure. This gradual loss of volume and fat deposits in the facial skin often results in the appearance of tear troughs, which become more prominent as your age advances.

How to treat tear troughs?

There are two methods to treat under-eye bags and tear troughs in Melbourne:

Add volume to the cheek areas

In some cases, tear troughs form due to the loss of fatty deposits or fatty pads in the cheeks. In this case, the treatment of the upper cheek with specific doses of dermal fillers can offer proper support to the under-eye areas, smoothen the skin and diminish the appearance of tear troughs.

Administer tear trough dermal fillers into the affected area

If the patient has good volume in their cheeks but has a deep tear trough under the eyes, then tear trough dermal fillers can be administered directly into the under-eye area with the help of scientifically approved microneedles and injectables. These fillers can effectively lift the areas under the skin and diminish the depth in the lines.

To achieve the best outcomes from tear trough dermal filler treatment, the treatment has to be conducted by an experienced cosmetic physician, with TGA & FDA approved products and equipment and under controlled circumstances.

Use of cheap fillers or improper equipment may result in long term scars or deep bruising. Therefore, you must check the credentials of the clinic and the Dr before undergoing any treatment.

How much does it cost?

Different people have different degrees of tear troughs depths and lines. The prescribed doses of filler ingredients required can only be determined after a detailed skin examination. Therefore, the cost of treatment may vary for every patient.

Consult our cosmetic physician, Dr Shobhna Singh, now to know more about tear trough dermal fillers.

How long does tear trough dermal filler treatment last?

The positive results of tear trough dermal fillers treatment last for approx 12 – 24 months depending on the skin of dermal filler used. With successive treatments, the positive results last for more than 12 months.

Are there any risks of tear trough dermal filler treatment?

The risks of tear trough dermal fillers in Melbourne include:

  • Undertreatment
  • Overtreatment
  • Bruising

The area around the eyes is the most sensitive, therefore, it is also the most difficult area for dermal filler treatment. Under eyes are easily prone to puffiness and water retention, therefore, the cosmetic physician has to be extra careful with the amount of dermal filler being administered into the area. For this reason, the patient may experience these temporary side effects or risk could be effectively managed post-treatment.

The site of the injection may cause some nursing, which is temporary and easily goes away within a few days post-treatment.

Can tear trough dermal fillers correct the under eye dark skin?

In most cases, tear trough dermal fillers can help to lessen the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.

There are various reasons for the formation of undereye dark circles. More often it’s caused due to aging. As you age, your facial skin, including the cheek areas, loses its fatty deposits which add volume to the face. As a result, the skin becomes weaker, dull and loose. This results in the formation of dark circles.

Tear trough dermal fillers when administered into the specific areas of the facial skin, fill up the hollow space, and restore lost volume. This makes the skin tighter and smoother. The appearance of dark circles reduces and you achieve a flawless and youthful appearance.
