Tear Trough Filler
As the ageing process commences, a common indication that becomes apparent is the loss of soft tissue volume below the eyes. These ‘trough-like hollows’ can appear in the crease where the cheekbone meets the under eye. This gives the appearance of marked dark circles which can be very ageing and distressing.
Tear Trough Filler is slightly different from other dermal fillers as it requires a series of micro-injections which are placed within anatomically safe zones to reduce the possibility of any unwanted complications. The hyaluronic acid based filler is inserted into this hollow area under the eyes and is evenly distributed through gentle massaging of the skin by the practitioner.

The tear trough filler procedure requires a series of micro-injections which are placed within anatomically safe zones to reduce the possibility of any unwanted complications. Hyaluronic dermal filler is inserted within this “trough-like hollow’ and the practitioner will ensure even distribution by gently massaging the area.
A surgical lower eyelid lift or blepharoplasty may be able to treat excessive skin below the eye or pronounced eye bags but not everyone will be suitable for these procedures. In actual fact these procedures may make the dark circles worse in some instances. That is why the loss of volume below the eyes is best treated with dermal fillers in a temporary non-surgical tear trough filler procedure.
With prescribed numbing cream, dermal fillers involve minimal pain, and you may return to daily activities immediately after treatment. Bruising may last between 5-7 days.
Tear Trough Filler lasts around 9-12 months typically. All information will be discussed at your initial consultation with your doctor before the treatment commences.

Swelling may occur and, in this case, individuals can apply a cold compress to the area every few hours. During the recovery period, it’s important that you do not touch the area for at least six hours after the treatment and apply an Arnica cream before sleeping to reduce the chance of bruising overnight.
