What can help?

Dermal filler offers a quick and effective remedy to many cases of dark circles. It works by smoothing deep tear troughs and therefore reducing the shadow created by the hollow, making the under-eye area appear lighter. If the skin is pigmented, IPL or topical hydroquinone can also help to lighten the under-eye area.

This is an example of what can be achieved by using filler injections in the tear trough.

COMMON
QUESTIONS

We use dermal fillers, specifically formulated for the eye area, which contain a local anaesthetic known as lidocaine, to reduce discomfort. Topical numbing cream is also an option for anxious patients undergoing dermal fillers.

By correcting the under-eye contour, and replacing lost volume, the recessed tear trough is no longer able to cast a shadow. This transforms the eye area, and enables light to bounce off of it more easily – thus reducing the look of tiredness and fatigue.

Following tear trough filler, the under-eye area may feel sore and look slightly swollen; however this has normally disappeared within a few days. You will be able to resume your normal activities by the following day. If bruising does occur, it is usually easily covered with post-procedure makeup – though we advise waiting 24 hours to do this.

 

The effect of the tear trough filler is instant: the under-eye area is smooth and bright, and the upper face looks noticeably more rested. The result will improve as the filler integrates with the tissue over the first two weeks after treatment.
