Tear Trough Filler Phoenix
Phoenix Tear Trough Fillers
Tear trough fillers are hyaluronic acid gel injections that address facial volume loss. Similar to the lips, tear troughs are a common area where fillers can be used to restore volume, which is why our practice offers tear trough fillers injections. Many of us have deep-set eyes that can give an “always tired” appearance. Patients often will say they look tired even when they have had a full night’s sleep. The truth is, some of us are born with heavy bags and dark circles under our eyes. This appearance can mask our true emotions and change the way the world sees fillers are not ideal for patients with very thin skin that looks and feels like it is almost attached or stuck to the cheekbone. These patients will not benefit because you will be able to see the product. We also defer pregnant or breastfeeding patients for safety concerns.

Juvederm Volbella XC for tear trough under eyes
Juvederm Volbella XC has also been FDA approved for replacing volume loss in the delicate tear trough area for under-eye hollows. These infraorbital hollows make one look tired and older than your age. These under-eye hollows are often discolored and have volume loss. In order to rejuvenate this delicate under-eye area, Juvederm Volbella XC can be safely injected to restore a natural-looking appearance, which can last up to one year.
Juvederm Volbella XC differs from Juvederm Volbella in the addition of the local anesthetic, meaning it is a numbing agent that acts only in the injection site, called lidocaine. Lidocaine makes the procedure more comfortable and reduces the feeling of pain during the injection. At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa patients often find that Juvederm Volbella causes minimal discomfort even without lidocaine, due to do injector’s gentle precision.
How long does Juvederm Volbella last in tear trough?
Juvederm Volbella is a non-permanent tear trough enhancement treatment, unlike plastic surgery, but its results are quite long-lasting. In clinical trials, the tear trough effects of Juvederm Volbella lasted just past a full year for many patients, and up to a full year for others. In order to maximize the effects of Juvederm Volbella, patients will do touch-up appointments over the course of the year, but of course, this depends on the desired look of each individual patient. When you meet with an experienced healthcare provider like Dr. Suze, Dannielli RN, and Sylvia RN, you will work together to set the treatment schedule that is right for you.
Tear Trough Fillers With Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in PHX
Tear trough fillers are ideal for many patients. The goal of these injections is to blend the eyelid with the cheek to give a rested and youthful appearance.
Preparing For Injections
Prior to their appointment, patients are asked to not use blood thinners like aspirin for 5 days before the procedure. On the day of the injections, we remove any makeup and numb the skin for 20 minutes.
At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa, our approach is to inject very deep (almost directly on the cheekbone starting about halfway up the nose) and slowly move a small wave of the hyaluronic acid up towards the tear trough area. We have found that this technique is safe, and predictable, and dramatically reduces the risk of bruising in the area. Once the injections are complete, we place ice on the eyes for 5 minutes. Since we numb the skin and injections have some numbing material as well, patients should only experience some mild discomfort. We also only use cannulas (no needles under the skin), which means less trauma to the tissues.
Recovery & After Care
Do not rub or massage the treated area immediately following your treatment. When cleansing your face or applying makeup, use gentle, sweeping motions to avoid excessive mobility of the area. Patients should wait 24 hours before resuming strenuous activities that raise their heart rate and blood pressure, such as exercise and sex. Bruising at the treatment site may occur. You may resume other normal activities immediately. Temporary, minimal to moderate swelling may be expected. Apply cool compresses to the area treated (avoiding pressure). It may be normal to experience some tenderness at the treatment site that can last for a few hours or, at times, a couple of days. You may take acetaminophen/Tylenol if you experience any mild tenderness or discomfort. Wait a minimum of four weeks before receiving any laser treatments. Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa has LED light therapy devices available for patients to purchase and take home to speed healing and incorporation of products into the skin.
