    Tear Trough Filler in Cardiff

    (Under eye pigmentation, Dark Circles Undereye)

    The tear trough treatment is designed to reduce the effect of lost volume under the lower eyelid. The appearance of dark circles under the eye can be due to a loss of volume in this area, or prominent veins under the thin under-eye skin, or due to pigmentation, often brought about by excessive rubbing or cleansing for the eyelid region.

    Hyaluronic Acid (HA dermal fillers) Dermal Fillers are one of the most reliable techniques of restoring volume to this area. They can be inserted either using a Needle-Droplet technique or by the more advanced Micro-Cannula technique, which Dr. Prashant specializes in.

    The procedure is relatively painless, and in most instances does not have any downtime.
