I was also considering tear trough treatment and have been advised than they can be treated with a variety of non-permanent Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm or Teosyal. I'd say that as with any aesthetic treatment it's always advisable to seek expert opinion and advice from a qualified medical practitioner which is what I did and it really helped me decide the best way forward.
Oh really? I didn't realise that was the case. If you don't mind me asking what route did you take? I'll have to look for some before and afters to see how the results look.
it's true that non-permanent Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are an option for treating the tear trough area without the need for surgery. Restylane and Juvederm are good product to use in this area and have a natural and consistant result - they also have a very good safety profile. You want to be sure to go to someone very experienced before getting injections in this region. Restylane can often last 6-12 months in the tear trough region.
Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally by the body and found in soft tissues. The Restylane®, Juvederm® and Teosyal® ranges are synthesised and commonly used cross-linked hyaluronic acid gels. These are chemically similar to the naturally occurring gel and are inert and hypoallergenic.
Treatment with hyaluronic acid gel is entirely reversible, either over time or with an injection of hyalase to degrade it. Hyaluronic acid gel causes few side effects and complications. It is therefore regarded as one of the safest fillers for use in tear troughs and for loss of periorbital facial volume.
Hyaluronic acid gel is injected in clinic during a routine visit and causes very little swelling and only occasional bruising. Most people feel happy to return to work immediately.
Good luck and let us know what you decide.

Thank you Dr Souza! I would defiantly only go to an experience Dr if I was going to have any injected near my eyes!
Those slight risks you mention, are their any risks with my eyes? Could any damage happen to them?
Thank you again for helping me out!
Hello again Vivian
as with any aesthetic procedure, to minimise risks it is important to seek a professional experienced medical practitioner.
Thank you Angelica...I just can't imagine what this treatment's results look like! Have you got any before and afters for it?
Haha thanks Lucy, I'll give that a go in the meantime, but I think I need more than a couple of slices of cucumber! Viv
