Tear trough fillers

Lift and brighten your eyes with tear trough filler

Particularly deep tear troughs can also be caused by genetics, lack of sleep, a poor diet and even stress, while eye hollows can develop from an early age and can change the whole appearance of the face when they become longer, deeper and more heavily shadowed. A tear trough filler treatment provides an instant and natural looking correction to hollows under the eyes.

A fine grade hyaluronic filler is injected into the deeper part of the tear trough and this fills the hollow. This replaces lost volume and at the same time retains skin hydration. Once filled, the area appears flat and the light reflects off the skin evenly correcting dark shadows.

Frequently asked questions

If you have prominent tear troughs, look very tired, and creams don’t appear to work – there are two things that need treating individually.

One is volume loss within the anterior cheek pad, which is common as you age. This causes a depression just below the eye, forming the tear trough and resulting in the formation of shadows below the eyes so reflective make-up can sometimes, but not always be useful.

The second is thinning of the skin, which can lead to puffiness as a result of water retention.

The tear trough can be corrected with cheek volumisation, restoring the anterior cheek pad using filler and the loose skin can be addressed with energy based skin tightening or skin peels.

With any injectable procedure, there is the risk of bruising and can last up to 2 weeks, sometimes longer, however this is very rare. There may be minimal swelling and redness but this will settle within a few days. It can also be disguised with the use of make up.

You will have an in-depth, one to one consultation with our Aesthetic Nurse, Fiona, to discuss your concerns and assess your suitability for tear trough fillers.

Once this has been determined, a tear trough filler treatment plan will be created that’s fully tailored to your needs.

Tear trough filler treatments create an instant effect, but the results will improve as the product settles and integrates with the facial tissue.

Results normally last between 6-12 months. Although each person is different, some will find it doesn’t last the full 6 months. This can be caused by things such as smoking, fast metabolism, or regular exercise.

Patients can have treatment as and when they see fit, but it’s important to allow adequate time for the treatment to settle before considering another treatment.
