A professional, nonsurgical treatment to reduce bags and dark circles under the eyes.
Dermal fillers are delicately and precisely injected into the skin beneath the eyes to lift the sunken areas.
A cannula is a very small hollow tube with a blunt, rounded tip and a little exit-hole in the side. It is attached to the end of a filler syringe and can be threaded gently into the skin layers, pushing blood vessels to the side, without the risk of puncturing like a sharp needle.
A dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the skin beneath the eyes, smoothing and lifting the sunken areas, reducing the appearance of bags and dark circles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in the body which helps increase volume in the skin.
Using cannula is safer than traditional needle techniques, resulting in less swelling, bruising and pain!
This treatment requires two sessions split two weeks apart.
Before injecting dermal fillers, we apply a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort. A tiny incision is made to insert the cannula. The dermal fillers are then injected into the required areas. You will notice the difference immediately and after a few days your skin will feel totally natural.
Each session is completed in approximately 30 minutes.
The temporary side effects of the procedure should only last a few days and may include slight swelling, bruising and tenderness.
You will notice a difference immediately after the first session. The full effect of the treatment is apparent after the second session. The improvement in appearance can last a year or more. If the upper cheeks are filled at the same time, results can last longer, due to improved volumetric support.
