A Guide To Tear Trough Fillers

What are tear trough fillers?

There are many types of skin conditions that are especially prominent on the face, with tear troughs being among the most common.


Tear troughs are dark hollows that form beneath the eyes and create shadows in the face. Shadows of this nature make the sufferer appear haggard and tear troughs are generally harder to get rid of than dark circles or bags.


When it comes to treating the condition, tear trough fillers are an ideal cosmetic solution and we’ve created a handy guide so you can decide whether the treatment is suitable for you. If you want to learn more, you can also book a bespoke tear through consultation in Leeds, London or Cheshire.

How do tear trough dermal fillers work?

The process of injecting dermal filler into the area beneath the eyes is straightforward. Hyaluronic acid is introduced into the skin via a cannula and the substance is a game-changer in terms of skin rejuvenation because it’s a natural compound in the body.


Once the solution has been injected, the undereye area gradually becomes more voluminous and skin radiance is restored.
