Tear troughs are indentations which run from the nose and all around under the eye. These indentations get worse as we age – as a result of the sagging skin and the loss of facial fat underneath, giving the impression of tired, and darkened eyes. As the face ages this gives the appearance of lower eye indentations and dark circles.
In the past, it was thought that only surgery could improve the eye indentations and there were no effective treatments for the annoying dark circles under the eyes. We use a very careful multiple puncture technique, injecting the dermal filler deep just above the orbital bone.
We inject many times, depositing small amounts of filler and massaging them and moulding them carefully along the way. Like a patchwork, we slowly build up the filler and smooth the affected skin area. The tear trough treatment only takes around 20 minutes (after having a consultation) and the results are truly amazing.
This procedure rejuvenates the tired, ageing face like no other and the results can last up to 18 months before a top up is required. Prices for tear trough treatments can be found here.
