A subtle treatment for hollow areas beneath your eyes
A common side effect of the ageing process is the deepening of the hollows below your eyes, known as the tear trough. This natural sign of ageing happens because soft tissue loses volume as we get older, and it is often made more noticeable through lifestyle factors such as stress and lack of sleep. This can result in dark circles around your eyes and a tired, haggard appearance that can make you look older than you feel. Luckily, you no longer have to resort to surgery to reverse the effect of ageing.
At Bodyvie, we use soft dermal fillers to make subtle enhancements to the tear troughs, filling in the hollow areas for a younger, fresher appearance. The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your skin cells and acts as your body’s own moisturiser for supple, youthful skin. This treatment is increasingly popular because it alleviates the need for painful, risky cosmetic surgery, which has traditionally been used to remove bags under the eyes.
Your Bodyvie treatment will begin with an in-depth consultation to help us understand your requirements. The dermal fillers are then injected in very small quantities just above your cheekbone, filling in the hollow areas beneath your eyes. Your Bodyvie aesthetician will gently massage the filler once it has been injected to ensure that it is evenly distributed below your eyes.
The treatment takes around half an hour, and you will be able to return to your everyday activities soon afterwards. You will see the results of this treatment immediately, though there may be some slight swelling and bruising that will go away after a day or two.
