Tear Trough Fillers


The tear trough is the depression, or hollow, between the upper cheek and your eyelids. They can be caused by ageing as the skin in the area becomes thinner and facial fat descends under the eye but can also be genetic and appear in young people. Tear trough fillers such as Dermal fillers are an effective way of reducing the hollow appearance and can also target puffy eyes and dark circles.


An incredibly common condition that affects both men & women, the hollowing under the eyes can cause light to reflect in a way that makes the skin appear darker and sallow, giving you a constantly tired appearance. As we age, they tend to appear darker and deeper, often making patients feel that they have dark circles whether they have a good night’s sleep or not. When dermal fillers are used in this area, they can add volume underneath the skin and create a smooth, brightened and more youthful appearance.

River Aesthetics carry out corrective treatment of the tear troughs using Hyaluronic Acid based dermal fillers, which are naturally biodegradable and perfectly safe for the delicate eye area. Careful placement of a soft filler can disguise any hollowness and illusion of eye bags, allowing light to reflect evenly from your cheek and not draw attention to your lower eyelid area.

The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 9 to 12 months, depending on the area injected, before the hyaluronic acid is naturally broken down by the body.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which is natures ‘plumping molecule’ and is found naturally in the body. They are used to volumize, augment, hydrate the skin, instantly reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles for a natural ‘lifted’ appearance.

Where can dermal fillers be used?

Dermal filler can be used to beautify, correct and balance your profile. These areas include your nose, cheeks, lips, jaw, under eye and temple hollows.

Are dermal fillers painful?

Local anaesthetic is applied to the skin to minimise discomfort. They are generally not painful. However, treatment around the nose and lips tends to be more uncomfortable than other areas.
