Tear Trough Treatment in Notting Hill, Harley Street, Mayfair and Marylebone
The tear trough is characterized by a lack or loss of volume in the lower eyelid that creates a shadow appearance of a dark circle. With age, the depression can become more pronounced resulting in eye bags, dark circles and sunken, tired looking eyes. This can be exacerbated by the herniation of fat above. Often volume replacement can improve this area but must be evaluated by a specialist to determine the best treatment plan
Frequently Asked Questions
A tear trough is a depression or groove that runs from the inner corner of your eye, down and across your under-eye area. It often looks like there is a dark circle under your eye and gives your face an aged or tired appearance.
A tear trough is usually formed due to:
- Lack of sleep
- Sagging skin
- Enlarged under eye
- Fat pouches
- Age-related changes
Most candidates are in their 30s or older; however, younger individuals with deep tear troughs may also benefit from this procedure. If you have noticed deepening of the tear trough or dark circles under the eyes resulting in an aged and tired-looking face, you may be a candidate.
Although the tear trough treatment is very safe, there is a minimal risk of bruising, tenderness, redness or swelling, which will usually resolve without any intervention. Sometimes, lumps may form under the skin due to accumulation of the filler in certain areas. This may be easily managed by light massaging or may eventually get reabsorbed into the skin.
The improvement in your facial features are immediate and may last 6-9 months. You may need a follow-up session thereafter to maintain the results.
