Tear trough filler is an effective way to reduce dark circles and bags under the eyes while reducing wrinkles and fine lines. This non-surgical treatment will refresh your face and give you a more youthful look.

How to Get Rid of Bags Under Eyes

For a lot of us, as we age, we notice the skin on our face becoming lax. Feeling self conscious of sunken eyes, or dark circles is completely normal as you get older – and many of us who suffer from this insecurity seeking out ways to freshen up our appearance and feel more youthful can really restore confidence.

The soft tear trough filler we use consists of pharmaceutical grade hyaluronic acid that is similar to the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid found in soft tissue. It supports and hydrates the skin and is regarded as one of the safest fillers for use in tear troughs.

See our before and after photos for tear trough fillers.

Why Do We Get Dark Circles and Eye Bags?

Some people are naturally born with more sunken eye shapes, or eye bags. For others though, the skin under our eyes becomes lax with age and it’s something that gets more noticeable as we get older.

Generally, the reason for this decline in appearance is because the fat from the cheeks descends into the middle of the face leaving semi-circular depressions around the eyes. This often creates a tired look – and also tends to ‘age’ people too.

 

What Are Tear Trough Filler Injections and How Do They Help?

The hollow area that runs from the inner eye margin to the upper cheek is referred to as the “tear trough.” If you have depression here, the eyes will look sunken and cast unflattering shadows under the eyes — often known as “dark circles.” If you have under-eye bags, our tear trough filler treatment will also help reduce them.

Our non-surgical tear trough filler treatment uses soft dermal fillers made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is found naturally in the body. This substance is super hydrating and gives the space under the eyes a fresher, less-sunken, plumper appearance. Tear trough filler is a simple and quick procedure that uses small needles to inject the filler. With an integrated local anaesthetic for your comfort, this treatment is perfect if you want to look well-rested and invigorated in under thirty minutes.

Tear trough fillers are injected to bring depressions and sunken eyes back from the depths. By lifting these hollow areas, it can take away the tired look and lighten the dark circles caused by the shadowing effect.

This treatment restores volume, rejuvenates and brightens the area, reducing the appearance of dark circles — it is subtle but extremely effective. Most importantly, it restores confidence in our patients. The overall result is of a younger and fresher appearance. This is a revolutionary and non-surgical, quick eye-lift treatment that can rejuvenate your look with minimal downtime.

What Happens During Tear Trough Treatment?

It’s a very simple and quick procedure, so if you’re feeling nervous, hopefully we can put your mind at ease.

The treatment procedure involves the careful introduction of a filler into the under-eye area, using a fine injection needle. Your doctor or practitioner will be careful and gentle, and a lot of patients don’t feel much pain at all. Once the filler is injected, it is then gently massaged into the target area to blend into the cheekbone and recreate the smooth, firm foundation for your under-eye area.

How Long Until I See Results?

You will experience an immediate lifting effect from the procedure, but the final result may take up to two weeks. Fillers need time to integrate with the surrounding tissues to achieve hydration balance, and skin in the treated area needs time to relax and smooth out.

Say goodbye to tired looking eyes. Give us a call today to arrange a free, no obligation consultation at our cosmetic skin clinic at Harley Street to allow us to restore your confidence.

How Long Do Results Last?

The results from tear trough rejuvenation can last between 12-18 months. Every person will have different results depending on lifestyle and other factors, but you can expect to top-up your fillers once per year.

How Long Do Tear Trough Filler Treatments Take?

The treatment is non-invasive and very simple, meaning the entire process is normally completed in one appointment lasting 30-45 minutes.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Tear Trough Treatments?

Recovery is minimal and you will be able to go back to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the appointment. There may be some localised swelling, which will subside in one to two days.

What if I don’t like the results?

We’re positive you’ll love how you look after receiving your tear trough fillers, but one of the main benefits of hyaluronic fillers is they are reversible. This is a significant safety net for many people, especially those who are having the treatment for the first time.

Your Confidence Will Soar

Stress, fatigue and age can all contribute to the appearance of dark hollows under the eyes, which can make us look tired. Many patients struggle to cover up dark circles even after applying lots of concealer — but there is a simple solution.

Tear trough rejuvenation requires in-depth knowledge of anatomy and meticulous injection skill. The treatment itself involves careful planning and it is therefore paramount to only get this treatment at a reputable clinic. At Harley Street MD, our doctors are GMC registered and the clinic is fully regulated by CQC. We perform many tear trough treatments per day. By using advanced cannula technique, we are consistently achieving great results safely, painlessly and with minimal downtime.
