Dark Circles Under Eyes (Tear Trough Fillers)

The appearance of dark circles and hollowness beneath the eyes can be common concerns among both males and females, especially when professional etiquette is reflected. 

Although a common solution is to cover up this issue with excessive amounts of makeup, this usually does not solve the problem as you can still see the hollowness underneath. 

Having the ability to wake up looking younger and refreshed, without having to spend excessive amounts of time in front of the mirror attempting to cover this up is now an easily accessible option. This is now commonly managed with tear trough filler treatment or total eye rejuvenation. This will help you save time in the morning, money, and help increase your confidence throughout the day.

Note there are different types of tear trough treatments which are determined by the underlying cause. A Comprehensive Facial Assessment with one of our Medical Professionals allows for an accurate assessment and intervention plan to determine the best and most effective methods to minimise wrinkle lines. At Flawless Aesthetics Clinics, our priority is to keep you feeling young, refreshed and FLAWLESS.

Local Anaesthesia can also be injected into the treatment area (or nearby) and acts as a nerve block to achieve a numbing sensation and no feeling of the area for those who are sensitive to any form of pain.

Post any pain relief services, chemical cleaning agents (alcohol wipes/Chlorhexidine) are used to cleanse treatment areas to minimise infection risk. Dermal Filler injections are not impacted by this as they are inserted in different layers beneath the superficial skin layer.
