Tear trough

Eye bags and hollowness under the eyes can be removed by treating the Tear trough region with dermal filler.

Patients that suffer from dark circles and excessive undereye bags can be treated with hyaluronic acid injections. At Medicetics, we use Juvederm® ULTRA by Allergan and Teoxane by Teosya to reduce the appearance of dark circles and undereye bags - all without requiring surgery or incisions. Hyaluronic acid fillers provide instant volumization around the tear trough, thus removing the impression of undereye bags. Clients look awake, wide-eyed, and refreshed after just a single tear trough treatment.

Results from a dermal filler injection can last anywhere from 12 to 24 months, making this treatment a great option for busy clients. It's important that only a qualified doctor with years of experience administer this procedure, as it requires knowledge of anatomy and a delicate hand.

To determine if a non-surgical tear trough treatment is right for you, book your consultation with a Medicetics doctor today.

1. Volume loss is associated with ageing.
As we get older, volume underneath the eyes starts to dissipate, which is why dark circles become much more obvious.

2. Treating tear troughs can minimise undereye bags.
Injecting dermal fillers to minimise dark circles has a secondary benefit – it also evens out undereye bags, making clients look more well-rested and awake.

3. A doctor must treat tear troughs.
The delicate anatomy and newness of the treatment require that an experienced doctor performs this procedure. Don’t undergo this treatment without the oversight and experience of a medical professional!

4. Dermal fillers can also treat nasolabial folds.
If you’re concerned with the appearance of deep lines from your nose to the edges of your mouth, you can use the same dermal fillers to even out and minimise these lines.

5. Not all dermal fillers are the same.
That’s why Medicetics uses Juvederm to treat tear troughs, as it’s considered to be the gold standard for hyaluronic acid fillers that provide instant and natural-looking volume.

You may be a good candidate for tear trough treatments if:

  • Have dark undereye circles
  • Have excessive undereye bags
  • You have tired looking eyes
  • Have realistic expectations for your treatment

Dermal filler injections for tear troughs is performed in a single treatment session with a 2-week follow-up. Juvederm will be injected into the tear trough region via a small needle. Clients may be treated with a numbing cream to manage discomfort.

Common side effects can include slight bruising, swelling, and discomfort at the injection site. These side effects typically dissipate within the first week after treatment. Clients can expect results to last anywhere from 12 months to 2 years.
