Under Eye Filler in Tulsa, OK
Dermal Fillers can be placed under the eyes, or in the tear throughs to reduce the appearance of dark circles and hollowness. This is an advanced injection and should only be performed by an experienced injector. Not every patient is a candidate for tear trough filler. Typically, patients need cheek filler prior to treating the under eyes. The cheek is the foundation to the eye, and the first place we lose volume as we age. We must restore this foundation before treating the under eye which creates a more desirable result.
Tear Through Filler- Consultation & Treatment Day:
Before treatment, you will undergo a thorough consultation to determine if you are a candidate for filler in these areas, or if another treatment better suits your needs. If you are a candidate for treatment and time allows, we can complete treatment on the day of your consultation. The entire process takes an hour, on average.
After the consultation and prior to injections, before photos will be taken and a topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort. Once numb, the injection process takes around 30 - 45 minutes. The majority of patients report minimal pain and are able to continue their daily activities after treatment. Swelling is the most common side effect of any dermal filler treatment and can last anywhere from 48 hours up to two weeks.
