Tear trough deformity is a common condition, and can be a major concern for those of us who suffer from a shallow or dark area under the lower eyelids. A prominent tear trough is characterised by a sunken area underneath the lower eyelid and stretching down to the top of the cheeks. It can create a shadow, or be a darker more pigmented area of skin, creating a fatigued appearance, even if you’re getting enough rest every night.

There are a number of causes associated with tear troughs. They are often confused with eye bags or dark circles, as they create a similar appearance, but have different causes. Eye bags, for example, are caused by a sagging of the skin or excess fat under the eye, casting a shadow on the cheeks, while dark circles are due to thinness in the skin under the eye, where blood vessels and other pigmentation can be seen more prominently.

Tear troughs appear when the muscle under the eye is ‘anchored’ to the orbital bone, and when there is a lack of fat in the area (which can be genetic, or brought on by the effects of the ageing process), this creates a hollow, or trough, and casts a shadow under the eye.

While dark circles can be covered with makeup, tear troughs and eye bags create darkness under the eye by casting a shadow on the cheek, making them difficult to cover, and leaving many of us feeling uncomfortable or insecure in our appearance.

Fortunately, non-surgical treatment is now available for tear troughs, to add volume to the area and reduce the ‘shadowed’ effect under the eyes, by using hyaluronic dermal fillers. This treatment is available at our Altrincham clinic, serving patients in both Manchester and Cheshire.


What Is Tear Trough Treatment?

Tear trough treatment is a safe, advanced treatment using hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to add volume, smoothness and brightness to the undereye area, and reducing the appearance of a shadow under the eye.

During tear trough treatment, we gently inject the dermal filler into the area under the eye and at the top of the cheek, to fill the hollow under the eye and reduce the depth of the trough.

Dermal fillers can be used to successfully rejuvenate and smooth the tear trough area. It also helps to improve the quality of the skin by stimulating collagen production in the area, resulting in thicker, stronger skin, and less pigmentation, as well as enhancing hydration in the undereye area by stimulating more fluid absorption from the body.

The result is a refreshed, smoothed and plumper-looking tear trough, and a brighter, more youthful appearance.


Tear Trough Treatment At Revolution Aesthetics

At REVOLUTIONAESTHETICS, we are passionate about helping our patients feel like the best possible versions of themselves. As medical experts, we use our knowledge and experience to carry out non-surgical aesthetic treatments that truly make a difference in your life, and give you the results you’re looking for.

We precede all of our tear trough treatments with a consultation and assessment with our highly qualified team of experts, to ensure that you are suitable for treatment, and that we will be able to get highly effective results for you. If your concern is dark circles, which are primarily caused by pigmentation under the eyes, then tear trough treatment won’t give you the results you need. If your issues are caused by sagging of the undereye, loss of undereye fat or a genetic tear trough, then you are more likely to see effective results.

If, after your consultation, we do not think you are a suitable candidate for tear trough filler, we won’t carry out treatment any further, and will do our best to refer you to a specialist in the area of your concerns.

If we believe that treatment will be successful for you, we will make an appointment for your treatment. On the day of your treatment, you’ll be welcomed to our Altricham clinic by our friendly team.

We’ll firstly apply a numbing cream to the area to be injected, to improve your comfort and make your treatment more pleasant. Then, using a very fine cannula, we will inject dermal filler into the area, and gently massage it to create the desired shape.

At Revolution Aesthetics, we only use market-leading, brand name dermal fillers to ensure the complete safety of our patients, and make sure we get the best possible results for you, while also keeping our prices as affordable and accessible as possible.

After your treatment, you can get back to your day straight away, without any downtime! We recommend you don’t wear makeup for the rest of the day, to prevent infection, and that you don’t exercise heavily for 48 hours, to give the filler time to settle in place correctly. Apart from that, you can go about your daily life as usual, without any need to take time off work.

Q. How long does tear trough treatment take?

A. the treatment itself takes around 30 minutes, and we also allow an extra 15 minutes for the anaesthetic cream to take effect.

Q. How long does it last for?

A. The effects of the treatment last for 6-18 months for most of our patients. The precise duration however depends on a number of factors including age, skin type, and lifestyle. Treatment can be repeated once the dermal filler dissipates naturally.

Q. What will the treatment involve?

A. Following an individual consultation and examination session, on the day of your treatment we will apply local anaesthetic to the area to numb the skin for several minutes. Then, the filler will be injected under the skin, and massaged into place for optimum results.

Q. Does the treatment hurt?

A. We use a local anaesthetic to prevent any discomfort - which when combined with the use of a blunt cannula to precisely apply the dermal filler into the tear trough - means there is very little pain, even when injecting into an otherwise sensitive area.

Q. When will I see results?

A. Following the treatment, you will often see an initial result immediately. There will be some subtle swelling, which will usually take 1-2 days to settle. We will also discuss a full post-treatment skincare regime to keep your skin in the best condition possible; this is especially important if you suffer from pigmented skin and dark circles.
