Tear Trough Filler
For those seeking filler treatments in Seattle, tear troughs are a common target area. Treating the tear troughs with injectable tillers can make you look younger, less tired, and improve your overall facial appearance. When it comes to fillers, they are one of the safest and most popular cosmetic procedures because they provide a non-surgical, yet incredibly effective way to fill in facial hollows and wrinkles. The premier providers at Seattle Plastic Surgery offer tear trough filler to patients from the Seattle and Tacoma areas.
The tear troughs are the areas under your eyes that stretches from your lower nasal region to your eye socket. In some people these areas can look dark or sunken due to genetics and other factors. Normally, home remedies will not change the look of your under eyes or only minimally improve it. You may find yourself using concealer to help brighten up the area and get rid of that tired appearance.
Due to the location of the tear troughs, there can be many culprits of dark circles or a sunken look. Most of the time, genetics plays the largest role. Some people are born with a predisposition to developing issues with the tear troughs. Chronic allergies, sinusitis, aging, certain medical conditions, and sun or other skin damage can contribute to tear trough hollowing and darkness.
Treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing can improve the look of your under eyes, but, because many of the causes of sunken tear troughs are unavoidable or chronic these often will only provide temporary relief on the surface. These can certainly work with dermal fillers for optimal treatment.
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment carefully injected into target areas to plump and firm support tissues. Addressing the problem from underneath the skin provides a more natural result. It does not simply cover up your dark circles, rather, it corrects them. While dermal fillers are a temporary solution, the results they provide look better and need refreshed less often than other surface treatments.

Before your under eye filler in Seattle, your provider will determine if you are a good candidate for treatment. During your consultation, your provider will lead a conversation where they will inquire about your medical history, goals for your filler injections, and reasons for seeking tear trough filler. Giving your provider a full medical history will allow them to accurately decide if tear trough fillers are right for you. This consultation will help them craft a customized treatment plan.
After a thorough conversation, your provider will examine your tear troughs and surrounding area. This can help them determine the cause of your sunken tear troughs and determine if filler injections can achieve your cosmetic goals.
If your provider determines you are a viable candidate for under eye filler they can often administer your filler injections during the same appointment. Before proceeding with your injections, your provider will answer any of your questions and inform you of any aftercare and risks. They want to ensure you feel comfortable with the procedure.
To begin your treatment, your provider will cleanse you skin to make sure that no bacteria can infect the injection site. Depending upon your preferences and personalized treatment protocol, your provider may apply a topical anesthetic to help minimize pain. The majority of under eye fillers also contain lidocaine which helps ease the filler as your provider injects it. Most patients do not find that tear trough injections are overly painful.
At Seattle Plastic Surgery, our providers often use a cannula to inject under eye filler because it provides better results. Typically, your provider will use a needle to make a small opening in the skin for the cannula. Then, they will precisely insert the cannula and inject the filler. While they inject the filler and immediately afterward, your provider may gently massage the area to ease the injections and help move the filler into the correct position.
Immediately after treatment, you can return to your normal life and activities. Because tear trough filler in Seattle is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure, there is no extensive downtime or recovery associated with the treatment. Depending on your medical history and other factors, your provider may instruct you of aftercare instructions specific to you.
In general, you should be careful not to touch the area too much and avoid using makeup or exercising until the day after your injections. If possible, you should avoid blood thinners and medications with similar effects like ibuprofen, fish oil supplements, and others. This reduces the amount and risk of bruising. If blood thinners are medically necessary, discuss with your provider the best course of action. Normally, tear trough injections are still possible, but you may experience more bruising.
Other side effects you can expect are redness, mild pain, tightness, and swelling. These are all normal reactions and should resolve on their own without major intervention. More serious side effects or complications are rare. Especially when your Seattle under eye filler is performed by a qualified provider like those at Seattle Plastic Surgery.
