Under-eye hollows can give the impression that you are tired despite having enough sleep and feeling well. If you’re considering cosmetic treatments to address this concern, you might be torn between tear-trough fillers and polynucleotides. Both offer unique benefits, but which one is right for you?

Tear-Trough Filler Treatment for Under-eye Hollows

Tear trough filler is a popular cosmetic treatment designed to address under-eye hollows by injecting hyaluronic acid filler into the hollow space under the eyes, also known as the tear trough. This area can become sunken or darkened due to ageing, genetics, or other factors, creating a tired or aged appearance. By plumping up the area, tear trough filler reduces the appearance of hollows and dark circles, giving the face a more youthful and refreshed look.

Benefits of Tear-Trough Filler

  • Immediate Results: Tear trough filler provides instant volume and lift to the under-eye area, addressing concerns such as wrinkles, folds, and hollow regions of the face.
  • Non-Surgical Procedure: This non-surgical treatment typically takes less than an hour to complete, with minimal downtime.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Tear trough fillers offer a soft, natural effect, improving the hollowness under the eyes for a refreshed appearance.

However, it’s important to note that tear trough filler is a cosmetic procedure with risks and potential side effects. These include bruising, swelling, infection, and vascular complications. It’s essential to discuss the procedure with your injector and follow the post-treatment instructions carefully to minimise these risks.

Polynucleotides treatment for Under-eye Hollows

In the under-eye area, polynucleotide treatments enhance tissue repair and promote the synthesis of essential skin components like collagen and elastin. This leads to improved skin elasticity and hydration, resulting in reduced fine lines, and wrinkles, and enhanced skin texture. Additionally, increased collagen production helps thicken the skin, diminishing the appearance of dark circles.

Unlike fillers, which add volume externally, polynucleotides work to naturally rejuvenate the skin from within. This results in more natural and long-lasting improvements, making them an ideal option for individuals seeking to enhance the overall quality and health of their under-eye skin. If you’re concerned about skin texture and resilience, polynucleotide treatments may be the right choice for you.

Benefits of Polynucleotides

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Polynucleotides rejuvenate the under-eye area by stimulating collagen and elastin production, improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of hollows.
  • Brightens Dark Circles: The treatment brightens dark circles under the eyes, giving the skin a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
  • Long-Lasting Results: While multiple sessions are usually required for optimal results, the effects of polynucleotides can last for several months with proper maintenance.

Making Your Choice: The Personalised Approach to Under-eye Hollows in Billericay

Choosing the right treatment for under-eye hollows is crucial for achieving the desired results while minimizing potential risks. Tear trough filler is a popular choice for many, but it’s essential to choose someone experienced in this technique to minimize complications, as this is a treatment in a relatively risky area.

You will always be encouraged to have a face-to-face assessment to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. This is because if you have too much skin laxity in this area or you are prone to fluid retention, the hyaluronic acid in the gel can cause puffiness and undesired results. Additionally, this treatment does not address skin quality. For this reason, I believe that a full assessment and transparent conversation avoid disappointing results.

Common Questions about Under-eye Hollows

1-How do you get rid of under-eye hollows?

Tear trough fillers are ideal for combating the sunken look under the eyes, plumping up the hollow area for a refreshed appearance.

2. Can sunken eyes be reversed?

Yes, sunken eyes can be improved with various treatments, including dermal fillers, to minimize the appearance of hollows.

3. What is the best non-surgical treatment for hollow eyes?

Both tear trough fillers and polynucleotides can be effective non-surgical options for treating under-eye hollows, depending on your individual needs and preferences.

4. How do you fix under-eye hollows without fillers?

Lifestyle measures such as staying hydrated, getting enough sleep, and protecting your skin from sun damage can help reduce the appearance of under-eye hollows without injections. By incorporating these lifestyle measures into your daily routine, you can improve the appearance of under-eye hollows and support the effectiveness of any cosmetic treatments you may choose to pursue. You may also want to consider energy-based devices which tighten the skin. In some cases, you may benefit from surgery.

5. Are there side effects to tear-trough filler or polynucleotides?

Tear trough filler and polynucleotides are both injectable treatments, which means they carry a risk of bruising and swelling post-procedure. It’s essential to discuss these with your injector and follow the post-treatment instructions carefully to minimise them.

6. Can tear-trough filler and polynucleotides be used together?

Yes, tear trough filler and polynucleotide treatments can be used together to address under-eye hollows comprehensively. While tear trough filler adds volume externally, polynucleotides work to rejuvenate the skin from within, promoting collagen and elastin production. Combining these treatments can lead to more natural-looking and long-lasting results, improving the overall quality and health of the under-eye area. However, it’s essential to consult with an experienced practitioner to determine the best approach for your specific concerns and goals.
