Under Eye Circles | Tear Troughs

The anatomy of the tear trough is intricate, consisting of fat spaces, ligaments, and muscles that all change with age. These alterations can lead to issues like darkness and hollowness under the eyes.

Addressing Under-Eye Concerns with Tear Trough Fillers

Due to the fragile nature of the under-eye area, it is susceptible to:

  1. Early signs of ageing
  2. Volume loss
  3. Fatigue
  4. Dark circles
  5. Puffiness
  6. Hollowness
  7. Lastly, fine lines and wrinkles

These concerns can be efficiently corrected with the use of tear trough fillers.

Did you know?

The eye area is very sensitive and the skin around the eyes is up to 10 times more fragile than the skin of your face.

What Is A Tear Trough Filler?

The Tear Trough Filler or the Eye Bag Filler is a minimally invasive treatment that aims to restore volume, fill in eye wrinkles, and minimize under-eye puffiness in minutes.

Soft gel-like substance, hyaluronic acid-based Dermal fillers combined with master injection skills rejuvenate the tear trough area, a junction between your lower eyelids and upper cheek.

How Long Do Tear Trough Fillers Last?

The longevity of the tear trough fillers is usually somewhere between 12-18 months. However, the under-eye filler does not give permanent results, so you might need to reschedule your appointment to keep looking refreshed and rejuvenated.

Guide to Under Eye Fillers and Their Indications

Tear Trough Filler

The dips or grooves between the cheekbones and lower eyelids are called tear troughs. However, the presence of these hollows may either be due to lost volume or natural tear trough deformity. This gives a dull, aged, gloomy, and tired-looking appearance. Hence, it is considered aesthetically unappealing to many people.

The cosmetic doctor injects soft tear-trough dermal fillers to fill this groove while ensuring your under-eyes natural contour is visible.

Fillers for Dark Circles

Under-eye circles are caused by thinning skin, and visible veins are prevalent. They do not go away alone or by using the best eye cream for dark circles.

The unflattering darkness and shadows are minimized by carefully and strategically injecting hyaluronic acid-based tear through fillers under the skin.

If the under-eye circles are caused by pigmentation, you may require an alternative approach to correct them, such as peels and treatment with polynucleotide under eyes treatment

Eye Bag Fillers

Significant eyebags typically require surgical intervention. However, early-stage eyebags can be effectively masked with tear trough fillers, dramatically improving appearance and reducing the visibility of under-eye hollows.

Under Eye Wrinkles Filler

The skin under and around the eyes is very fragile, sensitive and thin. Unsurprisingly, it is also one of the first places to show signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and creepiness.

Unlike anti-ageing eye creams, which take months to deliver the desired results, under-eye wrinkle fillers, such as Restylane filler injections, can efficiently correct ageing signs with instant gratification.  We inject soft fillers, more for hydrating, using an ultrafine needle.  The filler aims to fill the line and stimulate collagen over the next few months.

Tear Trough Filler Treatment Journey

Consultation & Procedure

Assessment & Consultation

Non-surgical eye rejuvenation begins with an in-depth consultation and assessment with one of our experts at CosmeDocs. This involves a complete analysis of your facial anatomy, medical history, and aesthetic goals.

Treatment Procedure

The under-eye area is disinfected and numbed to minimize discomfort to the patient.

  • At CosmeDocs, Teosyal Redensity II is usually injected through a cannula to plump up the paper-thin lower eyelid skin.
  • Tear Trough Filler London quickly treats slight eye bags, under-eye hollowness, dark circles, and fine lines. However, heavy bags under the eyes may require alternative tear trough treatments such as surgery.

Post Treatment

After the procedure, the medical professional will gently massage the area to prevent any lumps. The results from tear-trough fillers are instantly noticeable, and you can expect to leave the clinic looking revived and refreshed!

Tear Troughs Vs. Dark Circles Vs. Eye Bags

It is essential to know what condition you are dealing with and what has caused it to happen in the first place. Here is the breakdown:

Tear Troughs

This is a deep groove or crease between your lower eyelid and upper cheek. Depending on its depth, it can cast a shadow below your eyes, giving a tired, aged, and sad look. Tear troughs also run in the families, resulting in volume loss underneath your eye area.

Dark Circles Under Eyes

Dark circles are a common and undesirable condition characterized by visible discolouration. The before and after tear trough filler treatment may involve dermal fillers to address volume loss and a combination of skin brighteners and peeling agents for skin rejuvenation.

Reason Behind Under-eye Dark Circles

Thankfully, they are not always a sign of medical concern and can result from:

  • Iron deposit (bluish hue)
  • Pigmentation (brownish hue)
  • Genetically passed on in your family
  • Ageing
  • Lastly, anaemia (Iron Deficiency)

Bags Under Eyes

Eye bags are not actual ‘bags’ but small bulges or pouches underneath the eyes. They can be hereditary or caused by excessive salt intake, thyroid issues, or ageing. Dr Shaun Desai, M.D., a facial plastic surgeon at Johns Hopkins Medicine, states that the natural ageing process is the primary cause of eye bags.

A related treatment, polynucleotides under eyes, can also help by thickening the skin and improving the colour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is an ideal candidate for a tear trough filler treatment?

Realistic expectations are vital before non-invasive skin treatments. Consultation at CosmeDocs is crucial. Tear trough fillers are suitable for genetic discolouration or volume loss under the eyes, improving skin health, and addressing thinning and wrinkles.

Lastly, it’s not for pregnant or breastfeeding individuals, those with lidocaine allergies, or those with significant health concerns.

What Is the Tear Trough Filler aftercare?

After a non-surgical procedure at CosmeDocs, expect slight bruising and swelling. Follow these tips:

  • Avoid touching the area for 6-8 hours.
  • Refrain from pressure for six hours.
  • No strenuous activity for 48 hours.
  • Avoid facials and makeup initially.
  • Skip alcohol and blood thinners.
  • Lastly, a cold compress and Arnica cream should be applied to treat swelling and bruising.

Is Tear Trough filler treatment painful?

The vast experience of the aesthetic doctors at CosmeDocs in other injectable treatments and their master injection skills ensure that most tear-trough patients experience little to no pain and discomfort. However, there may be slight discomfort during the procedure, which is minimized to a great extent with a topical anaesthetic numbing cream.

What Are The Possible Side Effects Of Tear Trough Filler?

The main side effect of eye filler is often mild swelling or bruising around the injection sites that eventually goes away on its own. However, any severe side effects from this non-surgical dermal filler treatment are infrequent.

Lastly, tear trough fillers generally have little to no chance of any major complications, making them well-tolerated by many patients despite the perceived risk of injectable procedures.

Are Tear Trough Fillers Safe?

Tear-trough fillers offer safety for many patients and are a less intrusive option than tear-trough surgery.

Due to the delicate nature of the eye area, only experienced doctors perform procedures at our clinic. Moreover, we use only top-quality dermal fillers tailored to specific anatomical regions to ensure practical results and patient safety.

Can I use an eye cream for dark circles?

While good eye cream is great for keeping the delicate skin around your eyes hydrated and moisturized, it may not deliver good dark circles treatment. Moreover, many patients, especially those suffering from genetic eye bags and under-eye dark circles, may not benefit from topical eye care.

Lastly, for instant and effective results, consult an aesthetic doctor to discuss your possibilities for a dermal filler treatment for your condition. 

Do tear trough fillers work with other Dermal Filler treatments?

Under-eye fillers, along with Botox for crow’s feet and other dermal filler procedures such as temple filler, are frequently requested at CosmeDocs. These anti-ageing treatments can complement your under-eye rejuvenation goals and swiftly transform an unwanted, tired appearance.

Occasionally, we recommend combining tear-trough rejuvenation with cheek fillers. This is because adequate cheek elevation and support below and around the lower lid and cheek area are essential to effectively support the tear trough procedure.

What is the recovery time after a Tear Trough Filler treatment?

With Tear Trough Filler London, recovery is typically swift, and treatment benefits are usually noticeable immediately. Additionally, there is no need for a long recovery period after dermal fillers, so routine activities may be resumed without delay.
