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 is a great way to help rejuvenate tired eyes by smoothing out shadows and eye bags making you look well rested and youthful.

Dermal filler for tear troughs works by targeting 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. These dark circles in this area gradually become more noticeable as the skin begins to sag and becomes thinner with age. Dermal filler injected into this area will help to restore the volume lost in this area as well as thickening the skin which will improve the appearance of any dark circles.

Dermal Filler can also be used in the cheek, lips, smile lines or mouth wrinkles, nose to mouth lines, mouth to chin lines, chin, nose and hands. To find out more about Dermal filler click here.

This can cause patients to look tired less vibrant. Tear trough filler is a specialised dermal filler technique aimed at filling the hollow depression underneath the eye that causes dark circles to appear. Dermal filler will replace lost volume into the area and help to retain and improve skin hydration in the treated area too.
