New Year, New You, Juvederm Tear Trough Fill

I spent a hearty amount of time over November and December at the Blume Skin Centre in Scottsdale,
observing and learning about the magic that is the injectible face lift.
These days girls and women can put off going under the knife, instead opting for the less invasive, less expensive, medical artistry that comes via a needle.

The crucial factor here is that you must go to someone completely brilliant in the field. Any yahoo can shoot you up with botox, and leave you looking perpetually terrified, or give you overinflated fish-lips, but a true medical artist will give you a face that moves and has expression, will give you back the glow of youth, and do it in such a way that no one will know you’ve been “enhanced”.
You absolutely must do your research to find a truly great practitioner, or, if you are in or near Arizona, I’ve done it for you – go to the Blume Skin Centre.

Whether it be with the mother of the bride, an actor or a socialite, I was constantly escorting clients into the Blume offices for a little fine tuning, be it facial revolumizing, subtle yet exquisite lip enhancing, a little fine line and wrinkle removing, or the fastest road to youth I have ever seen, the Juvederm Tear Trough Fill.

Very few doctors will do the Tear Trough, as it is such a delicate and refined procedure.

To get an understanding of what is going on, you need to understand how light and shadow work.
When you are young the area under the eye has volume.
Its full and rounded, and light bounces off of it, making you look awake, alert, and youthful.

As you age, (and really this starts in your early 20’s) you start to lose volume under the eyes, from the lower lash line to the upper cheek bone. You see a pronounced dip under the eye, which creates shadow and leaves you looking tired and older than your years.

Any place on your face that has craters or troughs, whether they be lost under eye volume, or the depths of a fine line or wrinkle, will suck up light and create a shadow within itself,

 making itself look bigger and more menacing, and making you look older.
When you fill these dips with injectable products like Juvederm, the surface area becomes smooth again, and light bounces off it, making you look younger.

When it comes to the under eye area, women typically pile on lighter shades of concealer,
trying to lift out the shadows and make the area look brighter and more alive. When the volume disappears under the eyes, the skin starts to sag a little, so now you have a whole lot of makeup on saggy skin, which not only is never a winning combination, but also makes you look even older.
Vicious circle, non?

A Juvederm Tear Trough Fill is a very quick and comparatively inexpensive procedure which lasts anywhere from a year to 2 years.
The procedures that I have watched have used less than one syringe of Juvederm for both eyes combined.
Dr Blume is nationally reknowned for his subtle lip enhancements, so with my clients he puts the remaining Juvederm into the lips, imperceptibly enhancing and redefining the lip border, ever so slightly fleshing out the pout.

The results are immediate. And spectacular.

Boys do it, girls do it.

They are also pain free, via topical numbing cream.

When your eyes have been refreshed you wear much less makeup. The skin looks brightened, the eyes look awakened. Its magic.

    Even if botox is the most used anti aging treatment I prefer Juvederm. When I first visited my cosmetic clinic the doctor showed me a list with all Toronto fillers and explained me how all of them work.
    Juvederm was my choice because it had hyaluronic acid in its composition, a substance that can be naturally found in our body…also the long lasting result was important for me and as you know Juvederm can last more than a year. My second session lasted a year and two months and the doctor told me the next one could last longer:D I'm looking forward to see that:D

    Julia Juvederm is amazing! Quite possibly the best of all the hyaluronic acid fillers. It does a different job than botox though.
    Botox temporarily paralyses muscles to stop them crunching up and frowning. The HA fillers get underneath a crease or fold and push it up, or fill it.
    Typically they are used to do different jobs, but work synergistically.
    So glad you are loving your Juvederm!
    And thank you for commenting!! 😀

    I have been trying to find someone in the Chicago area for under eye filler. How do I go about researching doctors? I've tried many web searches and am stuck. Can you provide any advice?

    You have to go underground a little – find people who have had it done and find out who did it for them. There are generally not many doctors who can do it.
    Maybe start by talking to plastics guys who specialize in the eye area, or the top beauty dermatologists, and start asking for referrals from there.
    It takes a lot of research to find the right doctor, but its worth it!!

    You could also try calling the Blume Skin Centre in Scottsdale, tell them you read about them here, and ask if they know anyone in Chicago.

    Good luck and keep me posted!!

    Are the results for Juvederm tear trough depression always immediate? I had .3 injections under each eye and it has been 9 days with no results. I have a pillow-like look under my right eye that hasn't gone away yet. My injector was an Occular Plastic Surgeon. I've had Juvederm injections for years now in other parts of my face with amazing results. Some bloggers have mentioned that it takes 2 weeks to show results under the eyes.

      Whenever I have seen it done the result has been immediate. With a filler there shouldn't be a wait time.

    Tear trough treatment can help you in getting rid of dark circles and puffy under eye bags with non-surgical treatment tear tough filler. This advance procedure will definitely help you to remove the appearance of aging quickly.

    Dr.NIRDOSH says 'Tear Trough is a fabulous treatment which can vanish bags and darkness and restore lost volumization that occurs with aging. It's a common problematic area for women, as some days eyes look more puffy and saggy than others. Add late nights into the mix and you have under eyes areas that are rapidly declining. My tear trough treatment can fix this in less than 20 minutes with instantly visible results. Women who have not had this treatment should come to see us on Harley Street as they are really missing out on regaining beautiful eyes.continue reading this post.and get more information.
