Dermal Fillers for Tear Trough region?
Fillers are soft gel-like substances (non-animal hyaluronic acid) injected safely into different areas of the face such as the Under-eye area called the “Tear Trough”. They are mainly used to enhance and volumize the HOLLOW under-eye area. It also minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by filling up facial depressions or lines beneath the skin. Besides this, fillers also help individuals to revitalise the skin to regain a firmer and youthful appearance by restoring skin volume giving the desired effect of enhancing facial features to create a more beautiful look. As we grow older, our skin ages and starts to lose the ability to stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This leads to loss of volume and sagging skin. DrDAesthetics carries a wide range of HSA approved hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, Belotero, and Revanesse.
