Dermal Fillers for Tear Troughs
Tear troughs, or the indented circles under the eyes, have become a concern for many patients as they age. One treatment that helps improve the contour and support the fragile tissue under the eye is the use of dermal fillers. This is an advanced injection technique that adds volume to a very delicate area. At the Facial Surgery & Cosmetic Centre of Ottawa, this treatment has been offered over the past four years. With the availability of newer hyaluronic acid injectables, like Juvederm and Esthelis from Switzerland, treatment outcome have improved and the longevity of treatment can reach up to a year, with some patients only needing touch ups after this time frame. Patient satisfaction has been high and word of mouth has spread, making this treatment one that is sought after. Dermal fillers have come a long way from just filling wrinkles!!
