Hi, just wanted to say a massive thank you to Dr Michael Aicken for doing an amazing job for me. I see a huge improvement after my treatment, particularly, the tear troughs have been a great success Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I’m looking forward to seeing you again in the near futureAnna (pictured above)
What are ‘tear troughs’? They are the dark ridges that develop below the eyes which are often worse in appearance when tired or dehydrated. These lines are notoriously difficult to treat and have been seen by many practitioners as a big challenge in non-surgical aesthetics.
Can other dermal fillers be used to treat them? Yes – but not as well, and not for as long. Other fillers are much more likely to migrate with time towards the inner part of the tear trough leading to the appearance of a lump. Teosyal Redensity II doesn’t form lumps.
What’s involved in treatment? The treatment involves 3 or 4 injections under each eye. Before this, the skin can be anaesthetised using anaesthetics cream so that the whole procedure is virtually pain free. It takes around 5 minutes to complete each treatment.
What’s the treatment protocol? 1 treatment, with results lasting 9-12 months.
Who offers this treatment? Dr Michael Aicken offers this treatment at his private home clinic in east Belfast. To request an appointment at our next Tear Trough clinic, simply complete the form found at top or bottom of this page.
Any questions? Please email [email protected] with your name and your question. It may also be useful to email a photo if you are unsure whether or not you would be suitable for this treatment.
How much will this treatment cost? The price charged by Dr Michael Aicken is £250 for 1ml. Although 1ml is the recommended dose by the manufacturer, more is sometimes given during a second procedure, best carried out at least one week after the initial treatment. Around 25% of patients seem to choose to get a 2nd ml of this product. If this second treatment is given within 1 month of the 1st, a reduced price of £200 will be charged for the second syringe.
I am very happy with the Tear Trough treatment. Very little bruising, no swelling. Thank you!1st Redensity II patient at Visage
