Tear Trough

Developments in advanced aesthetics mean eye bags and dark circles can now be remedied in under an hour.

  • Also known as non-surgical eye-bag removal, tear trough treatment focuses on the depressions and droopiness that can appear under the eyes. The skin here is thinner than it is elsewhere on the face, which means as we age, and the bone and skin loses density, it can draw the face down and cause eye bags to form.

    A hollowing of the eyes can also result in the formation of shadows and dark circles, making the face look tired. In younger women, dark circles can be caused by hereditary pigmentation under the eye, as well as lifestyle factors, including lack of sleep.

    Ideal for anyone who wants to look instantly younger without going under the knife, tear trough treatment is effective for dark circles and eye bags, with the procedure offering instant results. It’s worth noting, however, that in some cases, dark circles can be caused by an underlying medical condition or nutritional deficiency. In this instance, you should see your doctor first, if you’re concerned.

  • A painless procedure which can be performed in under an hour, tear trough treatment only begins after we first numb the area using a topical anaesthetic.

    Then, a cannula (a blunt-tipped needle with a tiny hole) is inserted into the upper cheek, before being gently eased into the area beneath the eye.

    A filler solution containing hyaluronic acid – the body’s natural moisturiser – is then infused into the tissue, effectively drawing water into the area and causing it to plump from within.

    At Helen Taylor Aesthetics, we perform tear trough treatment in two sessions, four weeks apart, to ensure exactly the right amount of filler is delivered to the area. This minimises swelling and helps ensure the best results, but in some cases, only one treatment will be required.

  • Expect to see an instant plumping of the area beneath the eyes, refreshing the appearance of your whole face.

    Wrinkles and eye bags will be minimised, and dark circles greatly reduced, if not completely erased. What’s more, the benefits improve over time, lasting from 12 to 18 months. Regular top-ups can be administered after this time, to help maintain a youthful appearance.

    If drooping beneath the eyes is particularly severe, you can boost the benefits by undergoing a thread lift, which can be performed alongside tear trough treatment to improve collagen production, add structure to the cheeks and provide extra lift.

    With sensitivity reducing within 72 hours, you can be back to work immediately, since the after-effects are not too noticeable. As ever, there is always a risk of skin irritation and sensitivity.
