Tear trough

Tear troughs are the deep semi-circle-like grooves found in between the cheekbones and under eyes. Our dermal filler treatment reduces the appearance of tear troughs, without any surgery.

  • Doctor only treatment
  • Minimal downtime
  • Minimally invasive

Tear trough filler

Tear trough filler is a minimally invasive, non-surgical injectable treatment. This treatment is used to re-energise the under eyes, smoothing under eye hollows and dark circles for that wide-eyed glow. So even after those late nights, your under eyes will say otherwise and you’ll wake up each day looking well-rested.

Our medical experts’ go-to tear trough filler is our non-invasive dermal fillers. For those looking to reduce under eye bags, restore volume to under eye hollows or even smooth out lines and wrinkles, dermal filler could help. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, a liquid naturally stored in the skin to retain moisture, our dermal fillers simultaneously plump and hydrate the under eyes. And as the treatment isn’t surgical, you can go about your day with minimal downtime.

Dermal fillers treatment, by the experts

Trusted for over 20 years to remove the appearance of tear troughs, eye bags, and the insecurities that come with them, you can rely on us to deliver amazing results.

As the under eye area is so delicate, eye filler should only be performed by an experienced medical professional.  Our tear trough filler treatments are only injected by our credible team of doctors, giving you added peace of mind. Our experienced, industry-renowned doctors will always put your safety first.

During your consultation at our London clinic, one of our doctors will assess whether filler is the right treatment for you, as well as discussing everything you need to know about the treatment. 

What causes tear troughs?

The main culprit of under eye hollows and volume loss under the eyes is age. But this area can be impacted by a whole range of factors including lifestyle, allergies and lack of sleep. For some, the effects can even be inherited. The causes include:

  • Ageing: The natural ageing process leads to a loss of collagen and elastin, which results in a decrease in skin elasticity and volume. This can contribute to the appearance of tear troughs as the area under the eyes becomes more hollow or sunken. If you have fillers in the tear trough area, the rest of the face will age as normal.
  • Genetics: Some inherit hollowness and dark circles under the eyes. The anatomical structure of the face, including the position of the fat pads and bone structure, can play a role in the development of tear troughs.
  • Loss of fat and volume: As we age, fat pads in the face can shift or diminish, including the fat pads that provide support to the under-eye area. This loss of fat and volume can create a hollow or sunken appearance.
  • Fluid retention and swelling: Factors such as water retention, allergies, sinus issues, or inadequate sleep can cause fluid to build under the eyes. This can lead to puffiness and accentuated tear troughs.
  • Lifestyle factors: Certain lifestyle habits, such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, poor nutrition, and lack of sleep, can contribute.

Who is suitable for treatment?

Tear trough treatment may be effective for those who have bags and hollows under the eyes. As we age, our eye sockets become much more prominent and defined. With a precise amount of specially-designed dermal filler, our aesthetic doctors can add volume and structure once more to the area, while avoiding the puffy, overdone look. 

Who will perform treatment?

Given the delicate under eye area, this treatment is carried out by our team of doctors. Our doctors are some of the country’s most advanced injectors. They treat a variety of patients at our London clinic, as well as educating other medical professionals on international stages.

How long do tear trough fillers last?

As every face is different, so are the results. But our dermal fillers can last anywhere between 12 and 24 months when injected into the under eye area.

Does tear trough filler hurt?

Our Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic, numbing the area whilst being injected into the skin. You may feel a little uncomfortable, but you shouldn’t feel pain during tear trough filler treatment. 

Tear trough filler aftercare

Tear trough filler aftercare is so important. This makes sure you experience the best results possible and minimise the risk of complications. While specific instructions may vary depending on the patient, here are some general tear trough filler aftercare guidelines:

  1. Avoid touching or applying pressure. For the first 24-48 hours following the treatment, avoid touching or applying excessive pressure to the treated area. This includes avoiding rubbing, massaging, or putting any significant pressure on the tear troughs.
  2. Apply cold compresses. Applying cold compresses or ice packs wrapped in a cloth to the treated area can help reduce swelling and alleviate any discomfort. Be sure to use a barrier, such as a cloth or towel, to protect the skin from direct contact with the cold pack.
  3. Avoid strenuous activities. Minimise activities that may increase blood flow or strain the treated area, such as vigorous exercise, heavy lifting, or bending over. These activities can potentially impact the outcome of the treatment and increase the risk of bruising or swelling.
  4. Avoid sun exposure. Protect the treated area from direct sun exposure and avoid tanning beds for at least a week following the treatment. Sun exposure can increase the risk of hyperpigmentation and other complications.
  5. Use gentle skincare products. During the initial healing period, opt for gentle skincare products that do not contain harsh chemicals or potential irritants. Avoid exfoliating or using abrasive scrubs in the treated area.
  6. Sleep with an elevated head position. For the first few nights after the treatment, sleep with your head slightly elevated by using an extra pillow or raising the head of your bed. This can help minimise swelling.
  7. Follow post-treatment instructions. It is crucial to adhere to any specific post-treatment instructions provided by your healthcare provider. This may include using prescribed topical creams or avoiding certain medications or supplements that could increase the risk of complications.
