Tear trough treatment
Dark, sunken and discoloured area under eyes. The aging of the eyes and surrounding areas is a common concern for many people. Dark ridges and a lack of volume below the eyes not only make us look tired but also add years to our appearance.
Non-surgically, tear troughs can be treated with dermal fillers and help to smooth the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek.

It is the dark ridge area that develops underneath each eye. These lines are unique and generally difficult to treat, however, much progress has been made in this field of non-surgical aesthetics.
Those lines could be a part of changes in accordance with age but can also be seen in young patients with genetic predisposition.
The natural ageing process of the under eye area goes along with bone recession and drooping of the fat pads in and around the eyes. Each fat compartment develops itself on its own. They separate and disperse, forming hollows, ridges and folds. The result of this mechanism is an overall tired appearance, discolouration and dark circles under eyes.
Tear Trough filler treatment achieves a correction of these volume deficits and improving the tone of the skin around the eyes. The filler is placed in specific deficit points to ensure the volume added improves the area in a natural way. The colour of the skin and skin tone should also improve following the administration of the hyaluronic acid as water is drawn to the area.
The treatment involves 3 or 4 injections under each eye. Prior to procedure, the skin is anaesthetised using anaesthetic cream so it is virtually pain free. It takes in about 15 minutes to complete the treatment. 1ml is the recommended dose by the manufacturer, however, in a minority of cases an additional dosage is needed which is best carried out at least one week after the initial treatment. Results are noticeable immediately.
Teosyal Redensity II. A dermal filler is the only licensed product for this treatment as it doesn't form lumps. Other fillers could potentially be used too, however, they more likely tend to migrate with time and create the appearance of a lump.
One treatment with results lasting 9 – 12 months.
I’ve had two Profhilo treatments with Martina and am thrilled with the results. The treatment itself was really quick with very little “down-time”. My skin is now visibly plumper, really hydrated and the texture has greatly improved (some acne scarring has even reduced). I would 100% recommend to anyone looking to achieve firm, healthy and radiant skin.
Thanks to the girls in Dunboyne! Put me at ease upon my first visit. Looking forward to going back for my follow up Profhilo treatment and excited about results!
Martina was professional and approachable. She clearly outlined the expectations I should have for the results of the treatment and said that visible results may take a week or two, however I was pleasantly surprised as I noticed results almost immediately! I'm looking forward to my second profhilo treatment.
I wanted to thank you for the treatments I had few weeks ago, as always I am so happy with the results and feel much more confident! Two of my friends are now considering having something done (who might have been against anything in the past) as they are so impressed with the work you have done and how natural it looks. Thank you again! :)
Very competitively priced, and a premium service. Would definitely recommended to friends (I have already).
Very nice experience. Easy to book, the receptionist was very friendly and there's a nice atmosphere in the place. I was a bit nervous before the profhilo treatment as I've never has anything like this done before, but Dr. Keeling was very calm and put me at ease. Appointments were also available at short notice which is a bonus. I'll definitely be back.
I'd heard a bit about Profhilo and was surprised it was available locally. Decided to give it a try and I was very satisfied with the results. I'm in my 50's, the treatment definitely got rid of some unwanted lines and wrinkles. Martina was very professional too.
Really, REALLY happy with my treatment. I had a regular aesthetic clinic I used to go to, but since moving closer to Dunboyne I thought I'd try out Facial Aesthetics Dunboyne - It was a good decision. Really professional set up, good prices, and nice people. I'll be seeing you guys again soon!
