How Long Does Tear Trough Filler Last?

Written by: |

Getting tear trough filler is a popular procedure for those who want to give the eye area a lift. The procedure can help reduce the appearance of hollowness and will also reduce the appearance of any dark circles under the eyes.

How Long Does Tear Trough Filler Last?

So how long does tear trough filler last? Let’s take a look at what factors influence its longevity. 

What are tear trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers are also known as under-eye fillers or dermal fillers, they’re a non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic treatment designed to make tired-looking eyes look brighter and more youthful. 

The process involves injecting a gel-like substance, typically hyaluronic acid, into specific areas around the eyes. This helps to replenish lost volume, smooth out wrinkles and lines, and can even add volume to other facial areas like the lips, brows, cheeks, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds, should the patient wish.

How long does tear-trough filler last?

Tear trough fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on individual factors such as the type of filler used, metabolism, and skin quality. 

Factors such as age, skin type, lifestyle, and muscle activity can also influence the longevity of the treatment. Below we take a closer look at exactly how these factors influence the longevity of tear trough filler. 

Factors affecting how long tear trough fillers last

If you want your tear-trough filler to last, you will need to consider the following factors before deciding which treatment is right for you: 

  • Age: Younger patients may enjoy longer-lasting results because their skin tends to retain more natural elasticity than those in later stages of life. 
  • Skin Quality: Usually, thicker skin is more resilient against signs of ageing, but it also means that it can retain filler for a longer period of time. 
  • Lifestyle: Lifestyle plays a significant role in how long tear trough filler lasts. For example, smokers can reduce the length of time results are present. Other lifestyle factors that affect the fillers’ longevity include sun exposure, calorie restricted diets, heavy cardiovascular activity, poor diets and poor skin and eye care routines. 
  • Muscle Activity: The muscle activity around the eyes will also influence the length of time the tear trough filler lasts. If there is a lot of activity, the filler may not last as long because more activity will cause the structure of the filler to break down faster. 

Before you decide to get tear-trough filler, you should consider the above factors. This will help you create a routine schedule for filler replenishment which will help you keep the results you want. 

How long do tear-trough filler results last?

The results of tear trough filler treatments can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on factors such as the type of filler used and your own metabolism. 

Ultimately, you can decide how regularly you want to have fillers put in. Your practitioner will be able to advise on the best way forward so that you can get as close to the results you want as possible. 

In some cases, it may be impossible to achieve the results you want. For example, if you want immediate results, you may need to reduce your expectations if you’re advised you need multiple fillers. This ultimately depends on your skin type and overall health. 

A good practitioner will also never perform the filling procedure if you are not a suitable candidate. For example, you will need to assess whether or not you have allergies before you proceed. The eye area is incredibly sensitive, and marginal errors can have adverse effects.

How to maintain tear trough filler results

Following a healthy lifestyle and protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays is essential to maintain tear-trough fillers. This includes using sunscreen with a high SPF, wearing protective clothing, and avoiding extreme heat, such as saunas or tanning beds. 

Additionally, maintain a balanced diet rich in nutrients and avoid smoking, which can contribute to the breakdown of the filler, meaning you will need to attend procedure appointments more regularly, costing you money. 

Regularly moisturising the skin and using gentle skincare products can also help maintain the filler’s effects. 

You must also follow your practitioner’s aftercare instructions and avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for a few days after getting your filler done. 

By adopting these habits, you can ensure the longevity of your tear-trough filler results and maintain a rejuvenated appearance around your eyes.
