As we age, our bodies change. Some of these changes we can live with and others–we’d like to live without. Sometimes a tiny adjustment or a little bit of help can make all the difference.
At Trilogy, we are on the cutting edge of technology and advancements to help you look your best. We are excited to offer tear trough fills, targeting the area under your eyes. We can improve dark circles, hollowness, or bags under the eyes. This treatment is requested by both men and women. See some of our amazing before & after pictures below.
Tear Trough Fill Q & A
How do you do the procedure? What product do you use?
We fill under the eye with a newer generation injectable filler called Belotero Balance. We administer it with a microneedle. Belotero Balance is a smooth gel made of hyaluronic acid, which naturally occurs in skin. When it is injected, it attracts water, acting like a sponge as it expands to fill a space. It also stimulates your body to produce collagen which makes your skin smoother, tighter, and younger looking. Belotero Balance is also commonly used to treat facial wrinkles.
Once I have the procedure done, how long will it take to notice a difference?
The great thing with Belotero is that you will notice a difference immediately! A treatment usually lasts 6 months. A positive side effect to this treatment is that when Belotero is injected, your body naturally increases its collagen production in that area. Collagen is the protein our bodies produce that naturally makes skin firm and supple. Over time, you may actually need less frequent visits and smaller doses of Belotero thanks to the long-term benefits of creating new collagen.
What should I expect during and after treatment?
Belotero is injected with a fine gauge needle, so pain is minimal. The procedure takes 30-45 minutes. There is little if any after care. Common side effects include some redness and swelling in the area for up to 7 days. Bruising is possible as well. It is recommended to avoid strenuous activities and sun exposure for 24 hours. It is also recommended to plan some possible downtime with this procedure. In other words, don’t do it the day before your wedding. Do it at least a week before an important event.
The eyes are such a sensitive area to treat. What if I don’t like the result?
The good news is HA injections like Belotero are reversible with a medicine called Hyaluronidase. You look can definitely be adjusted. The other good news is that at Trilogy, our injectors are highly trained and experienced and get great results. Their philosophy is to do less at first. They can always add more Belotero filler later if needed.
