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.
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).
After the injections, we mould the filler moulded smooth to ensure an even result.
We place under eye filler deep to your lower eyelid muscles, on the bone. This ensures a smooth result, and minimises the chance of lumps and swelling.
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.

The best type of filler to use under your eyes depends how hollow they are, and the quality of your lower eyelid skin.
Deep tear troughs that have thick overlying skin require a thick filler that does not attract much water.
More subtle tear troughs or those with thinner skin need a soft filler to avoid lumps and swelling.
Under eye fillers give an immediate result that improves over 2-4 weeks.
As the result usually improves as it settles, we must under-correct the hollowness. This safeguards against over-filling which can cause lumps and swelling.
Under eye fillers last 12-24 months on average. You may need more than one session to achieve the best result.

There are very rare risks of under eye filler that will be explained to you during your comprehensive consultation.
Yes, if performed incorrectly under eye filler can cause dark circles. This occurs when the filler is placed to close to the skin, causing a reflection of blue-coloured light (a component of sunlight). This is called the Tyndall effect, and gives your under eyes a dark, discoloured, blue appearance.
Bruising is a risk of under eye filler injections. We minimise bruising by using a gentle technique, and by placing the filler with tiny needles or a blunt cannula.
You can minimise bruising by following the treatment aftercare.
Incorrect techniques and using the wrong filler can cause lumps under your eyes. We can easily treat under eye filler lumps with dermal filler dissolving.
When performed by an experienced and appropriately qualified medical professional, tear trough filler is a low-risk treatment.
In inexperienced or under-qualified hands, the risk of tear trough filler can be high.
What is a tear trough and why do we develop them?
The tear troughs are the hollow grooves that extend down and outward from the inner corner of the eyes. These grooves are known as tear troughs due to the tendency of tears to pool in them. We have tear troughs due to the unique anatomy of the lower eyelid. A slight separation between the margin of the bony eye socket and the cheek fat, along with a relative lack of connective tissue forms the groove.
It is normal for almost everyone to have a slight tear trough from birth, although people of certain backgrounds are more prone to having deeper and longer tear troughs, usually due to larger eye sockets and more deeply set eyes.
With age, the tear trough generally becomes more pronounced, with the resulting hollowness catching shadows and giving the impression of dark circles. Even from our early 20’s these changes start to manifest, although it can occur earlier in some people than others.
The two key changes that cause tear troughs to become more pronounced are a loss of mid-cheek fat, and the natural sagging of the mid-cheek fat and skin. This is demonstrated in the infographic below, and causes a greater separation between the cheek fat and the bony margin of the eye socket. Weight-loss may also accelerate the natural progression of tear troughs, as can smoking and sun-damage.
Tear troughs are a common concern in people of all ages. They make you appear hollow, tired and accentuate dark circles. Fortunately, under eye filler (also known as tear trough filler) can be used to improve the appearance of your tear troughs.
How dermal fillers are used under the eyes
Dermal fillers are a gel substance that can be used to replace or enhance volume and hydrate the skin. They are made of a compound based on a naturally-occurring sugar molecule called hyaluronic acid.
When used under the eyes, dermal fillers work to reduce hollow tear troughs. They achieve this by filling in the tear troughs (the grooves between the bony margin of the eye socket and the cheek fat). Under eye fillers do not directly improve eye bags or dark circles, but they do help to disguise them.
Under eye fillers camouflage eye bags by blending them in with the surrounding structures. A conservative approach is mandatory, as too much filler can cause the eye bags to appear more prominent.
Dark circles are indirectly treated by reducing the shadowing that occurs when your under eyes are more hollow and deeply set. By supporting the under eye skin, it is projected further forward and better catches the light. Tear trough filler does not improve the thin skin and pigmentation that primarily cause dark circles.
Dermal fillers are placed under the eyes by using either a tiny needle or a fine blunt instrument known as a cannula. Often a combination of the two is used to achieve the most significant improvement.
Correcting tear trough hollows with dermal filler has benefits that include:
Under eye filler can be used to correct either a genetic tear trough, or one that has developed with age by filling in the hollow areas.
With the precise placement of under eye filler, mild to moderate eye bags can be camouflaged.
Treating under eye hollows with dermal filler reduces shadowing on the lower eyelid. This helps to improve the appearance of dark circles.
Softening the tear trough is a quick, simple and no downtime treatment that can give your eyes a fresh and rested appearance.
Importantly, those who have developed more prominent tear troughs with age may need a more comprehensive treatment to correctly treat under eye hollows. With age, the cheek fat shrinks and sags, accentuating the tear trough.
Correction of the cheek volume depletion with cheek filler is the first step in treating a tear trough. This is because only very small amounts of dermal filler can be safely injected under the eyes. By correcting the cheek volume first, less volume is required in the tear trough. The result is a more natural and significant improvement in your under eye area.
This approach avoids the risk of overfilling, which can cause swelling and lumps under the eyes (something often seen in inexperienced hands who neglect the cheek area).
Under eye fillers are often used as a component of a comprehensive eye rejuvenation treatment.

Why does the eye area show ageing so easily?
The eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Unfortunately, the eyes are also the first place we look when interacting with someone. Signs of ageing around the eyes rarely go unnoticed to others, who seem to never hesitate in commenting how tired you look.
The skin around your eyes is very thin and delicate. With little soft tissue and fat, its very prone to ageing. Fine lines, wrinkles, eye bags, hollows and dark circles can develop even in your early 20s. Some people even have genetically hollow eye sockets, with deep tear troughs from childhood.
Although medical-grade eye cream can help, you’re often fighting a losing battle with eye ageing.
Eye Skin Concerns Unrelated To Ageing
Lines and wrinkles are not the only concerns people have about their under eyes. People of all ages have many reasons to consider filling their under eyes.
Dark circles, puffiness, and hollowness are common issues affecting the under eyes. They can have a significant effect on your appearance, and may start to develop from an early age.
A lack of sleep can make your under eyes look worse, as can lifestyle factors like smoking, sun exposure, dehydration, and a poor diet.
