Non-Surgical Treatments for Hollow Eyes, Tear Troughs, and Eye Bags
We offer tear trough fillers from our aesthetics clinic in Glasgow, Scotland
The eyes are considered the most attractive facial feature but are often one of the first parts of the face to show signs of ageing. One of the biggest complaints patients often make about their eyes is that they are told they look ‘tired’ or ‘sad’ even when they feel quite the opposite.
In the past, the only option to rejuvenate tired-looking eyes – especially lower eyelid bags – was invasive surgery. Now, it is often possible to achieve an effective lower eyelid rejuvenation by using a relatively quick and simple injection – the tear trough filler.

Restore Lost Volume to Ageing, Tired Eyes
To understand how non-surgical rejuvenation using dermal fillers works around the eye area, it is first necessary to understand why the eye area ages in the first place. In the past, we assumed it was simply due to gravity causing the tissues to fall and sag. We now understand, however, that ageing is much more complicated than that and age-related changes in appearance are primarily related to loss of volume beneath the skin.
The bone below the eye – known as the infraorbital rim – shrinks (or, to give it its proper medical name, ‘atrophies’) with age. When this happens, the fat pad beneath the eye can bulge forward, creating the appearance of an eye bag and dark circles under the eyes.
Because of this evolution in our understanding of why the eye ages, our treatment of the problem has also evolved – moving away from radical surgery that involves cutting away the ‘excess’ fat towards less invasive volume restoration treatments, such as tear trough fillers.
Enhance Your Facial Aesthetics Without Surgery
Facial aesthetics are non-surgical treatments for reducing the signs of ageing by softening wrinkles, contouring the face, and restoring definition to facial features. Treatments such as tear trough fillers are designed to restore a more youthful appearance to your face and make you look less tired without the need for invasive procedures that require recovery time.
Dermal fillers are a popular treatment for rejuvenating the skin and reducing the signs of ageing because they are quick, easy, and don’t involve going under the knife.
