Tear Trough

Dark under eyes circles and puffy eye bags, often hereditary conditions, can now be miraculously corrected with under eyes fillers,  sometimes called “tear-trough filler”.  The dark shadows are caused by loss of fat volume under the eye.  In certain ethnic categories the dark circles are caused by ethnic pigmentation. In this case dermal filler under the eye will accentuate the color, which is one of the reasons you must have a full and thorough consultation with our clinicians.  At DD Clinical, all our aesthetic practitioners receive specialist training in dealing with tear-troughs, and have performed hundreds of treatment with excellent results.

Contrary to belief, the procedure is not painful. A cannula (a blunt, safe needle) is used to deposit the filler under the eye. The results are immediate and last for 12-18 months. Our clinicians use the best dermal fillers available for this delicate area. Often a second treatment is needed, therefore all patients will have a follow up appointment booked for 2 weeks after the initial procedure.
