Tear Trough Filler

Fillers for under the eyes

What is a tear trough filler?

Tear trough is the area below your eye where dark circles can appear. Dark circles are caused by hollowing of the tear trough which results in shadows. Dark shadows in this area can make you look tired and aged.

Dermal filler tear trough treatment can rejuvenate tired eyes by smoothing out dark shadows, hollows and eye bags making you look well rested and youthful.

Tear Trough filler is available at our Skin clinics in London Harley Street, Birmingham, Bristol, BuckinghamshireLeeds, Manchester and Northampton.

How do under eye fillers work?

Dermal filler for tear troughs targets the depressions that run from the nose to the under-eye area. This area of depression can make your eyes look sunken and cast unflattering shadows which are known as dark circles. With age these dark circles become noticeable as the skin begins to sag and becomes thinner.

Dermal filler injected into the under eye help to restore lost volume and by thickening the skin which will improve the appearance of any dark circles.

Tear Trough
By injecting Dermal Fillers into the tear trough – which extends from your eye to divide your cheek from your lower eyelid – the area can be made to look less hollow while subtly easing dark circles under the eyes. Tear Trough procedures treatments are very specialised and require an experienced hand to perform them, especially since the treatment may not be suitable for everyone. The area under the eyes is assessed before treatment and your nurse or doctor will advise you on whether this is an effective treatment for your case. Those who are eligible will benefit from a fuller and brighter expression that will leave your face looking fresh and rejuvenated.


What are Tear Troughs?

Tear troughs are a groove or depression that sits between the lower eyelid and the cheeks that create a hollowing. This hollowing results in a dark shadow being created in the area which is often referred to as a dark circle. Tear troughs are often genetic but they can be caused by ageing.

Dermal Fillers in this area can help to smooth the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheeks, filling out the space to make the appearance of tear troughs less obvious.
