About Tear Trough Filler

Tear Trough dermal filler is injected into the ‘trough’ underneath your eye to decrease the hollowness of the area. This area is usually where you get a crease or ‘dip’ under the eye appear dark and tired. It can often lead to shadows or dark circles under the eye, making you appear that you haven’t slept well, and comments from friends and family say that you look tired. The tear trough can look particularly prominent in photos particularly when the flash is used as it highlights your under-eye area.

The hollowing under your eyes can be age-related and can be caused by several factors including the environment, weather, and dietary intake and can even be hereditary. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything to reverse the effects of this. However, this is where Tear Trough Filler can help. It is often one of the earlier changes of ageing.

For some, this groove under the eye has been there since childhood, and can often be seen in your parents. This is genetically inherited.

At Schon Aesthetic Birmingham we use the Cannula technique. This is where Dermal Filler is injected into the Tear Trough via a microcannula – an thin tube. An insertion point is made around the cheekbone area so that the microcannula can be fed through. This means that dermal filler can be injected more precisely and carefully into the delicate area under the eye. The cannula technique allows for less chance of bruising and is generally pain-free. More importantly, the cannula technique is much safer, especially around this highly sensitive area.

Once the filler has been injected via the Cannula, the results are seen instantly. Once the filler is in place under the eye, this area tends to absorb more fluid from the body after the treatment. This means that the tear trough remains hydrated, therefore resulting in looking refreshed and plump under the eye. This can also help to improve dark circles under the eyes.

The Different Causes Of Visible Tear Troughs:

Under eye hollowing can be evident for a number of reasons not limited to ageing.

  1. Genetic

Darkness under the eyes can be evident at any age due to the skin being particularly thin and the area housing a large number of blood vessels. These can dilate due to allergies, or be more evident due to skin pigmentation, also poor circulation can cause blood vessels to be especially evident under the eyes.

  • Volume Loss
  1. Fat pads under our eyes make the blood vessels underneath less evident and therefore give a brighter appearance. Weight loss can cause these fat pads to lose volume and make the area take a blueish colour reflecting the veins underneath.
  1. Ageing

3a. Fat pad degeneration

As we age, the fat pads in our faces become thinner, giving our face a more gaunt appearance. The fullness typically associated with youth isn’t just due to the top layer of the skin, the thickness of the fat pads contributes towards how hollow and saggy the skin appears as it has less structural support.
We use dermal filler to re-create the natural shape of your fat pads and restore fullness to your mid-face.


3b. Bone structure degeneration

As we age, our bones also undergo structural changes. We see an overall decrease in volume, with one prominent change being in the eye sockets, which become both longer and wider in men and women. This lack of support from the bones in the eye socket area can contribute to a more hollow appearance. Moisturising and cleansing unfortunately cannot rectify the foundational support that was previously offered by our bones.
A dark under-eye area and eye bags can also simply be caused by genetics, as the shape, depth and strength of eye sockets and cheekbones vary from person to person.
Tear trough filler can restore the structure of a weaker mid-face and give a more youthful appearance which is why we also inject the cheek area to create support for the tear trough.

Micro- cannulas are different to needles in that they are soft plastic tubes with no sharp points. This means that it is painless to use in sensitive areas such as around the eyes. Topical numbing cream can also be used to help reduce discomfort and most under eye dermal filler contain numbing agents within the compound to further numb the area.

After care requirements for tear trough fillers

You should avoid touching or massaging the area for up to 2 days while the filler is still soft. This will prevent any movement of the filler and will keep the finished result looking perfect.

Swimming, sauna and steam rooms should be avoided for 7 days as this will slow down the dermal filler settling in with your natural bodily fluid around the eyes.
