The tear trough area is below the lower lid and above the cheek. As we age we lose volume and elasticity in this area the skin sags and becomes thinner with age, creating dark shadows which makes us look old and tired.  Using dermal fillers to treat this area helps to rejuvenate tired eyes as it smoothes out the dark hollows giving the patient a revitalised and well rested appearance.

The benefits are:

  • short treatment time
  • no scarring or general anaesthetic
  • patients can return to work/home immediately as there is no downtime
  • natural results
  • performed by a qualified doctor
  • Book a consultation here with Dr Prerna Mittal to ensure this procedure is right for you.

    *Patients experiences will vary dependent on age, lifestyle and medical history

To treat the tear trough area is a relatively simple and quick procedure, usually no more than 15 minutes and then you can go back to work immediately.  As Dr Mittal will apply topical anaesthetic to the area, you will need to be at your appointment 30 minutes earlier to allow the cream to numb the area. Once numb Dr Mittal will cleanse the area and then mark it up to ensure that the dermal filler is placed in the correct area for each patient, then cleansed and marked up.The tear trough dermal fillers target the depressions that run from the under-eye are to the nose. This is the area that creates the hollow making your eyes look sunken and creating the dark circles under the eyes which are very unflattering. The dermal fillers improve both the volume lost and the thickness of the skin which in themselves helps improve the appearance of the under eye area.Once the dermal fillers have been injected into the tear trough area, it will be massaged to ensure the area is smoothed out.

There is no downtime; the patient will see the results immediately but may experience some redness, bruising and swelling, which can, patient dependent take a few days to dissipate.

Dr Prerna Mittal suggests lying on your back for several nights, where possible, to give the area time to settle down. Don’t touch your face, apply make-up and avoid strenuous exercise for up to six hours on the day of treatment.

To maintain these results the patient will be required to visit the Clinic for additional top-up treatments.

Dr Prerna Mittal will discuss the options with you at your consultation as treatments vary according to the patient, the number of procedures you are having, the brand and how much is required.
