Under eye filler treatment provides a quick non-surgical approach to refresh the eye area. Under eye fillers are used to address several cosmetic concerns. These include under eye hollows or tear trough, dark circles, eye bags and under eye wrinkles. The best filler varies depending on your concerns (or combination of concerns). Not everyone is suitable for under eye filler treatment so we provide a free assessment with our experienced lady doctors.
Under Eye Fillers for Tear Troughs Or Under Eye Hollows
Tear troughs filler is used to rejuvenate dark circles, eye bags and under eye hollows. The tear trough develops under the eye from volume loss in the area. The face fat pads that are present in youth gradually deflate and move south, leading to under eye hollowing, the formation of dark circles and the appearance under eye bags. These factors combine to give a tired and more aged look. When used for rejuvenation of under eye hollows or dark circles the term tear trough filler is used.
The volume loss process starts in mid to late 30’s. However, some people have less fat, and the appearance of dark under eye circles can appear earlier. Dark circles can also be caused by pigmentation in the area, under eye fillers will not do anything to correct pigmentation. If the appearance of dark circles and under-eye bags are from volume loss, fillers can help lift and lessen the appearance. The skin in the tear trough area is quite thin, so care and experience are necessary to treat this area to achieve a good result. Always check how much experience your injector has with under eye fillers!

What Are The Best Under Eye Fillers?
The best under eye fillers for rejuvenation depends on what is happening with your face.
Tear Trough Filler
When the concern is primarily with under eye hollows a thick filler placed lower is often the best approach and can be used in combination with cheek fillers. However, depending on your skin and fat around the eye, a more superficial or thin filler can be chosen.
Treatment of Dark Circles & Under Eye Wrinkles.
Another approach to treating dark circles and wrinkles is using collagen therapy such as PRP (platelet rich plasma). This is also known as the Vampire facial and can be used alone or again in combination with a thin under eye dermal filler. PRP injections require your blood be taken, spun in a centrifuge and then re-injected into the areas requiring restoration. Dermal fillers can be mixed in once the platelet-rich plasma has been extracted. The tear trough fillers provide immediate results, while the PRP injections results develop slowly.
Who Would Benefit from Tear Trough Fillers?
