Tear trough filler

Specialty of Ophthalmology

Tear trough filler is a treatment to remove the appearance of dark coloured lines beneath your eyes. The tear trough is the area between the lower eyelid and upper cheek where the tears often flow if you cry. Over time, these tear troughs can become darker, more shadowed, and longer in length, and can give the impression of being tired. A new treatment can remove the appearance of these lines, leading to a more youthful appearance.

How does tear trough filler treatment work?

Tear trough filler is a non-surgical treatment, involving a series of injections below the eye. As we age, the skin below the eyes becomes looser. Tear trough filler involves an injection of hyaluronic acid gel formula that replaces lost volume while retaining skin hydration. The treatment usually takes only 20-30 minutes, and you will be able to leave the clinic following the treatment.

Is tear trough filler painful?

Tear trough filler treatment is not usually reported to be very painful by patients of this procedure. The small injections can cause some discomfort, but the pain is minimal. Many patients report that the treatment is less painful than they expected. The dermal filler formula also features a local anaesthetic, which helps to further relieve any pain experienced.

After the tear trough filler treatment

Following treatment, you will be able to see the results almost immediately. You may experience some swelling below the eyes, and often some bruising may appear for a few days following the procedure. For this reason it is advised not to have this treatment before a social event, and you may want to have some time off work.


It is also advised to avoid physical activity and rough physical contact to the eye area in the days following the treatment, to allow healing and swelling to decrease. Avoiding alcohol helps to avoid further swelling of the eye area.

Can the tear trough filler treatment be removed?

If you are not happy with the results of the tear trough filler treatment, it is possible for it to be removed. A dissolving enzyme treatment can be applied which instantaneously dissolves the filler.
