Under-eye filler, also known as tear trough filler, is a popular cosmetic treatment that help improve the appearance of eye bags, dark circles, sagging skin, and fine wrinkles around the eyes and achieve smoother, younger-looking, more radiant skin. This minimally invasive procedure involves using a cannula (blunt-tipped needle) to inject a gel-like substance into specific areas around the eyes to produce long-lasting results (six to eighteen months). At Novomed, we offer a wide range of hyaluronic acid fillers, including Restylane, Juvederm, and Hyacorp, to help you achieve a more rested and youthful appearance.

Am I a suitable candidate under-eye fillers?
If you have dark circles, sagging skin, and a fatigued appearance around your eyes, you may benefit from under-eye filler.
How do I prepare for under eye filler?
During initial consultation, the dermatologist will review your medical history, examine skin around your eyes, and discuss your treatment goals and the risks and benefits to help you make an informed decision. If the doctor determines that this treatment is suitable for you, they will provide you with some instructions to follow before your filler injection session.
What happens during the filler session?
A numbing cream is administered to the area at the start of the procedure, making the injections painless. Once the cream has taken effect, the doctor will inject the area with hyaluronic acid gel, which stimulates collagen production and replaces the volume lost through the ageing process, creating a more youthful appearance. The treatment takes around 30 minutes and can be combined with other procedures, such as facelift or browlift.
After the procedure, you can resume your daily activities but need to refrain from strenuous physical activity for 24 to 48 hours. You may experience minor bruising, redness, or swelling, which is normal and will go away quickly.
When can I see the result of the treatment?
Under eye fillers produce instant, natural-looking results. Improvement is noticeable immediately, and the final result will usually be visible around two weeks after treatment because the skin needs time to relax, smooth and allow the dermal fillers to integrate with the surrounding tissue, achieving optimum hydration balance.
How long does the result of the treatment last?
Although the results of the treatment are long-lasting, it is not a permanent solution since the filler will gradually dissolve over time. Patients are advised to get touch up sessions to retain their youthful, fresh appearance.
