THE DR. NASSIF NON SURGICAL BLEPHAROPLASTY

Tear Trough Rejuvenation

The eyes are often the first place to be most affected by the signs of ageing.  As they age, they develop trough-like hollows where the top of the cheekbone meets the under-eye – known as as tear troughs. This results in the tear trough area becoming deeper darker and lax in appearance, which in turn can accentuate dark circles under the eye.

These concerns can be easily addressed with a non surgical treatment that will restore volume, tone and add light to the eye area. At Nassif MedSpa we only use fillers that are specifically designed for the delicate eye area.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DOES THE TEAR TROUGH PROCEDURE ENTAIL?

Dr. Nassif’s 30 years of experience of facial anatomy and skill has afforded us the privilege of benefiting from his innovative and precise approach to tear tough treatment. Micro droplets of dermal filler are placed accurately under the skin and the treatment takes as little as 15 minutes. The results are instant and last between 12-18 months.

WHO IS SUITABLE?

Due to the delicate area of the face and patients individual requirements not everyone is a candidate for this procedure. A through consultation will determine the course of action we may be able to offer. Factors such as propensity for swelling, water retention, diet (salt intake) sleeping habits ie side sleepers are all factors that can affect the dermal filler once placed. Obtaining the best possible results is our priority and we will not treat someone we believe may not benefit from the procedure or could present less than desirable results. Alternative methods may be recommended to treat this area.

DOES IT HURT?

No. We use a local anesthetic with the filler so that any discomfort is minimal.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS?

Even with a skilled, experienced doctor you may experience minor initial lumps, swelling, puffiness or bruising. This generally lasts up to 48 hours. More rarely the injections can cause longer lasting redness under the eye. Complications will usually improve and resolve with time. We use non-permanent filler that is reversible, and we are contactable at all times if you have any concerns or questions.

AFTERCARE

Take care around the filled area for the period immediately following your treatment. Avoid unnecessary touching/pressure for the first six hours. extremes of heat or cold, vigorous exercise, lying down or leaning over for 4-6 hours.

Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face to face consultation with one of our doctors, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed
