There are different types of dermal fillers. However, the most common contain hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin and provides moisture and elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid usually stays in the tear trough for about six to nine months. However, the length of time depends on your body structure, your metabolism and the type and amount of filler that’s used. One of the benefits of using hyaluronic acid for the procedure is that it can be reversed if you’re not happy with the way it looks.
You can go back to your daily routine immediately after this procedure. But you should avoid exercise for 24 hours. Patients with dermal fillers should not get a facial massage for two weeks after treatment.
