Thanks for the question Chan.

According to the Medical Board of Australia’s guidelines, for a minor procedure to patients under 18 years old, there is a cooling off period for 7 days.

Ideally we should treat you after the age of 18 when you are fully able to consent for yourself. It is natural to have a tear trough, even when we are infants, so why not wait a while and really consider if it concerns you enough to warrant treatment.
