Treating the area beneath the eyes is traditionally quite a challenge within the non-surgical cosmetic treatments arena.
The practice involves far greater skill and experience than many practitioners feel confident to offer. However, for experienced practitioners, it can be a highly rewarding prospect.
Dr Tim Pearce, MBChB BSc (hons) MRCGP explains why he enjoys this area of treatment so much:
The treatment of the shadow that develops under the eyes has become one of my favourite areas to treat.
Many clients do not realise it is even possible until they have had a detailed consultation.
The eyes are the most delicate area of the face to inject so it is important to inject with great care and precision in order not to damage the delicate tissues.
Clients often comment on how slowly and gently the injections are applied.
Despite the sensitivity of the eye area, the slowness of injections makes it a surprisingly comfortable treatment experience with some reporting that it was actually without any pain or discomfort.
One of the best things about this treatment is the naturalness of the result, and how it instantly makes you look less tired and generally fresher. Because there is so little movement in the area, the treatment also lasts a very long time.
