But unlike tear trough fillers these treatments can’t build structure and fullness back into the tear trough. Tear trough filler treatment is a simple and natural way of improving this, and results at our tear trough filler clinic in Birmingham are seen immediately.
For many people, the undereye area is the first place to lose volume from the face. This can cause a permanent ‘hollow’ or ‘groove’ on the skin that can make us look tired (even when we aren’t).
This loss of volume can also make dark circles appear deeper and more noticeable on the skin. Because this type of filler is injected near the eyes, it’s imperative to get performed by an expert aesthetic practitioner only.
What are Tear Troughs Fillers
The tear trough is the crease between the lower eyelid and upper cheek. As you’ll know from warnings on many products telling you to ‘avoid the delicate eye area’, the tear trough skin here is very thin and fragile.
There are no differences between men and women. For both, the under-eye area is usually the first place to start showing signs of skin ageing. Herniation of fat below the eye – as age happens the skin laxity gets worse and the fat loses support and basically ‘hangs over’ the cheek area more – this is why we have eye bag formation.
Unlike the ‘hollowness’ of this skin area, fine lines can often be treated with topical creams and serums treatments, or filled and covered with makeup. This is unfortunately not the case for tear troughs – it’s very difficult to conceal a physical loss of volume. As well as tear trough fillers, cheek enhancement treatment also helps to support this ‘fat overhang’ on the skin too.
By using hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler at our clinic, we can replace lost volume around the tear trough. Immediately after clinic treatment, you’ll notice several changes to your face and skin.
The tear trough area where filler has been injected will appear fuller, fresher, and more youthful.

In the weeks and months following tear trough filler treatment at our clinic, collagen production will continue to be stimulated by the hyaluronic acid formula for a long-lasting, rejuvenating boost.
What Are The Causes
Hollow or ‘sunken’ under eye areas can be caused by a number of things:
The skin under our eyes is very close to the bone. When we don’t drink enough water, the skin can sag and lose its plumpness. You know how your skin feels plump and full throughout the day, even when you don’t drink much water?
It’s a sign that you aren’t getting enough water. Your body uses more of the electrolytes sodium and potassium than other parts of your body do, which makes your skin look thin and dehydrated even when you don’t feel it.
Both of these things can lead to perpetual eyebags (dark circles) under the eyes.
Tear troughs are the small divots in skin under the eyes that catch light and make the darker hollow appear larger than it is. Tear troughs are caused by ultraviolet damage and are most visible in people who live in sunny climates.
Sleep deprivation can cause the skin to become dull and pale, which means dark tissues and blood vessels become more prominent. It can also lead to a build-up of fluid underneath your eyes, making them appear puffy.
As we age, our skin loses collagen, elasticity and the ability to hold onto water. This is another cause of dark blood vessels becoming more noticeable under the eyes and tear trough area.
Some people naturally have a more hollow nature to their undereye area.
The Process for Tear Trough Fillers
Following the consultation process for fillers at our Birmingham aesthetics clinic, we’ll disinfect the under-eye area and apply topical anaesthetic treatments notably using Restylane, a high quality product used for dermal fillers.
A handful of skin injection treatment will be made, and the filler massaged to make sure it’s distributed evenly. The whole treatment for the fillers will take just a few minutes.
We often apply tear trough filler via a cannula. A cannula is a long, flexible tube that the filler can pass through, distributing it to multiple delicate areas without repeated injections. This is an excellent way to reduce the risk of bruising on the skin, and the more serious risk of vascular occlusion – a blockage that can lead to blindness.
Although this risk is already extremely low with fillers (only around 100 cases have ever been reported worldwide), cannulas reduce it even further.

On average, tear trough fillers last around a year. This will depend on your individual metabolism.
There’s no wrong or right age to get tear trough fillers. Many people like to start with these treatments in their late 20s and early 30s to counter early signs of ageing. Some use fillers as a corrective treatment in later years. Some people experience hollow under eye areas genetically, no matter your age, so there’s no reason you can’t consider this type of treatment from fillers early in life.
Any dermal fillers carry a risk of bruising. Some people experience it, some don’t. Any bruising that does occur from the treatment should fade within 2-4 days.
Over time, dermal fillers will naturally metabolise, and your features will return to their original appearance. Getting top up treatment for dermal fillers at our Birmingham clinic is usually advised once a year, although you may need fillers more or less frequently depending on your requirements and unique metabolism.
Tear trough filler treatment is great for correcting creases and sunkenness under the eyes. However, to target wrinkles on the outer edges of the eye (or ‘crow’s feet’), Botox treatment at our clinic is a better option. Botox and tear trough filler treatments make an amazing anti-ageing duo. You can speak to us about tailoring a unique treatment plan for your concerns during your consultation for the fillers.
There are no real restrictions following tear trough fillers – you’ll be able to go back to work or your normal routine immediately after treatment. But we advise that you don’t expose the area to intense heat for 24 hours after treatment (i.e. direct sunlight or sunbeds). Both alcohol wipes and aspirin can help mitigate the onset of delayed bruising.
There are also some general guidelines that will help to prevent infection.
- Try to avoid touching the area for the rest of the day, and it’s best to avoid applying makeup, in order to let the area breathe and heal.
- You should also avoid rubbing the area for a few days to let the filler settle in place.
