Tear Trough Fillers

Tear Trough Fillers

The purpose of a tear trough filler is to lessen the depth of a tear trough. A qualified medical practitioner injects a dermal filler into the region, making the skin seem thicker and tighter. It is a non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.

A tear trough is a deep groove between the lower eyelid and the upper cheek. It can occasionally throw a shadow behind your eyes, giving you a dull appearance. Some people believe that their tear troughs make them seem older.

In some people, tear troughs can be inherited. Tear troughs become increasingly visible in others as they age. It is just because of age, due to age people lose the volume of facial tissues

Like other face fillers, Tear trough fillers have advantages and disadvantages. Before receiving therapy, our doctor will tell you about all benefits and risks that you might face.

The hollowness around your eyes could go away. The tear trough treatment also enables you to add volume to another area of the face. It increases the volume of the lips, brows, cheeks, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds to give the face a more youthful appearance. Also, you may use this filler to produce a liquid facelift or liquid eye lift by applying it all over the face. Depending on the patient, this may work wonders.

What Can We Improve?

  • The tear trough deformity results in dark circles and shadows under the eyes.
  • The lateral (outer) area of the eye’s hollowness should be filled in.
  • The tissue surrounding the eye is supported.
  • The texture of the skin around the eyes is improved.
  • Treatment of small creases on the skin of the lower eyelids

Our doctor will tailor tear trough or under eye filler to each deficiency individually to give the patient the most attractive and natural-looking result possible. These comprise:

Support for BONY

The first step is strengthening the lower orbit’s bony support and generating a more neutral eye-socket vector. Structural filler columns are run along the lower orbit to achieve this.

Replacement of Volume

Volume replenishment in the deep fat pads behind the ocular muscles is the following phase. As a result, the region beneath the eyes might have a more youthful convex curve rather than a flat and drawn appearance.

Filler ‘Tear Trough’

The exposed bone portion at the innermost part of the eye (known as the tear-trough hollowing) is only addressed at this point. If this is done without taking into account the other anatomical abnormalities, the outcome will be bad.


Next, the boundary between the eyelid area and the cheek (known as the lid-cheek junction) is gradually merged to give the eye area a more youthful and delicate appearance.

What kind of filler is used?

We are frequently asked which filler is utilized. Our patients employ a variety of fillers for various parts of the face, each specialized for a certain anatomical location. There are several various filler preparations on the market today, and patients will be counseled on which will give the best cosmetic solution for them.

Our clinic exclusively employs dissolvable filler formulations that have a proven safety track record. We never employ any of the preparations connected with filler problems.

What Takes Place after the Injection of Tear Trough Fillers?

To operate, your dermatologist requires five to ten minutes.

  • Cleaning the space comes first.
  • Your healthcare professional will then ice the region.
  • The filler will next be injected by your doctor into your tear troughs numerous little times. He’ll inject you with a small cannula or needle (a thin tube).
  • Over the first 48 hours, you can have a little amount of redness or swelling, but this normally goes away on its own.
  • Right instantly, your eyes will seem full.
  • It is advisable to avoid touching your eyes or sleeping face down for the first 48 hours.
  • Using ice or a cold compress can help reduce swelling if that’s what you’d want.

What occurs throughout a tear-trough treatment?

You will receive either a small amount of topical numbing cream or an injectable anesthetic after the area to be treated has been thoroughly cleaned. A micro-cannula will be inserted, typically in the cheek region, and it will be used to gently probe the area under your eye. Following a very slow injection of the dermal filler, our doctors may use his finger to gently massage and shape the dermal filler into place. Once he is satisfied with the outcome, you can resume your normal activities. Just make sure to follow any aftercare instructions that are provided.

What is the most typical side effect of this procedure?

One of the most serious risks of using needles to inject fillers in the tear trough area is bleeding, which is followed by bruising and swelling that can last up to two weeks. The soft cannula injection approach can reduce this problem.

Who is a poor candidate for tear-trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers may not be helpful for older individuals with sagging and creepy lower eyelid skin. Younger individuals who just have dark pigmentation on their lower eyelids and no actual hollowing of the tear troughs may not be good candidates for this procedure.

How long will the effects persist?

The way each person responds to the treatment varies, and depending on your lifestyle, the benefits may last up to a year. You could find that you need to schedule a follow-up appointment sooner if you smoke, exercise extensively, or spend a lot of time in the sun without wearing sunscreen.

Without invasive surgery or a long recovery period, dermal fillers for the tear trough area have been shown to effectively restore the youthful vibrancy and wide-awake appearance of your eyes.

What is the tear trough area, and how does it alter with age?

The term “tear trough area” describes the region where our lower eyelids and upper cheek meet. One of the first signs of aging is a tear through hollowing, which is frequently an inherited trait that manifests in adolescence.

This region changes as we age, appearing hollower, darker, deeper, and less rejuvenated. The appearance of fatigue, exhaustion, and aging can be created by these depressions, which can make the eyes appear slightly sunken and cast unsightly dark shadows.
