    Tear troughs are the hollow areas typically found under your eyes. Severe tear troughs can extend all the way around to the outer corner of the eyes, and even down onto the cheek.

    Tear troughs often make you look tired as they make the under eyes hollow, and can contribute to dark circles. They are often persistent, even when you’ve had enough sleep.

    Tear troughs can be genetic, and can also develop over time with age and weight loss.

    Dark under eye circles can be caused by:

    • A naturally large orbit (eye socket)
    • Loss of cheek volume, whether through age or weight loss
    • Thinning under eye skin
    • Pigmentation of your under eye skin
    • Allergies, eczema, and chronic sinus congestion that can cause skin irritation of your under eyes
    • Genetics, with dark circles most commonly seen in people with Asian/Indian/Mediterranean heritage

    Under eye filler is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that corrects hollow under eyes (also known as tear troughs).

    Yes, under eye filler and tear trough filler the same treatment.

    Under eye filler adds structure to the hollow tear troughs under each eye. We use dermal filler to volumise the hollow areas. This improves under eye hollows & dark circles.

    Dark circles have a number of causes. To improve them, we need to treat each cause.

    We correct tear trough hollowing with under eye filler. This smooths the hollow area, reducing shadowing. between the eye and cheek (the tear trough), and the cheek itself.

    Thin and lax skin are treated with skin tightening devices, and we use topical skin creams and laser for pigmentation.

    Under eye filler injections improve dark circles caused by hollowness and volume loss.

    Under eye filler cannot treat dark circles caused by lax skin or pigmentation.

    Under eye filler may improve under eye wrinkles, however it depends on their cause and severity.

    Fine under eye wrinkles may need treatment with other modalities.

    Yes, under eye fillers can improve under your bags. They disguise bags by filling in hollow areas around them.

    We tear troughs in a specific sequence to minimise the risk of side effects.

    Firstly, we address volume deficiency in your cheeks and temples. A lack of support in these areas accentuates under eye hollows.

    We then correct your tear troughs directly with under eye fillers.

    Tear troughs have a number of causes:

    • Large eye sockets
    • Cheek and temple volume loss
    • Sagging skin

    Some people have natural tear troughs, while ethers develop them with age.

    If you have hollowness under your eyes, dark circles, or small eye bags you may be suitable for under eye filler. Your skin needs to be in good condition, and you can check this at home with the ‘snap’ test.

    Gently pull on the skin of your lower eyelid so the the eyelid sits slightly off the eyeball, hold for a few second and release. Time in seconds how long it takes for the lower eyelid skin to return completely to its normal position.

    If it takes less than 2 seconds then you are likely to be suitable for under eye filler. If it takes longer than 2 seconds, then you need to improve your skin before considering filler.

    The amount of under eye filler you need depends on how hollow your tear troughs are. We usually limit under eye filler to 1ml per session. Very hollow tear troughs may need multiple treatments.

    If you lack volume in your temples and cheeks, then additional filler may be needed for these areas.

    We can dissolve tear trough filler with Hyalase. This is placed with tiny needles, and reverses tear trough fillers immediately.

    After your consultation, we clean, mark, and numb the area around your under eyes.

    Using tiny needles or a blunt cannula, we carefully place filler into your tears troughs beneath the under eye muscle (obicularis oculi).

    Treating the tear trough with dermal filler cis difficult for inexperienced injectors because the skin is very delicate.

    Injecting the tear trough must be done with high precision. If the injection is imprecise, or the wrong type or amount of filler is used, you can get lumps and swelling.
