Tear Trough Filler
The Tear Trough is one of the most popular areas for treatment, it refers to the area between your lower eyelid and upper cheek. As you age and lose soft tissue volume, the skin starts to sag and eye socket hollows resulting in the skin becoming crepey and wrinkled which can make you look tired and older than you feel. Dermal Filler injections are the perfect treatment to smooth the skin and plump the area lacking volume resulting in a natural fresh looking appearance.
How does it work?
Our specially trained Doctor and Nurse injectors use a smooth injectable product designed specifically to raise the hollow just beneath your eye to be back at the level of the surrounding tissue. This has the effect of smoothing your skin and reducing the shadow, dark area, and impression of hollow eyes. The eyes are the most delicate area of your face to inject which is why we devote a lot of training in this area and take great care and precision to ensure the delicate tissue area around your eye is not damaged.
What results can I expect?
With a precise amount of specially-designed dermal filler, our aesthetic doctors can add volume and structure once more to your tear trough area, while avoiding the puffy, overdone look.
What is the recovery period like?
Some bruising and redness is common after this kind of dermal filler treatment of the tear trough, but typically you will find it resolves within a week. You should bear this in mind if you have an important event or holiday coming up.
Will I need a consultation?
Our practitioners will always provide a consultation before treatment, but if you've had filler treatment before you can usually have the treatment during the same appointment. Consultations are vital to our aesthetic medical professionals understanding exactly what you want to achieve and putting a treatment plan in place to get the results you deserve. You can find more information about our consultations on our injector consultation page.

If you are used to something different you can mention this at your consultation and our Doctor and Nurse injectors will be able to discuss the different end results with you.
How long will the filler last?
We recommend treatment intervals of 6 months although results can last longer than this depending on factors including the area of the filler treatment, your lifestyle and aftercare.
How qualified are your injectors?
Five of our dermal filler injectors are fully qualified Doctors and we have a sixth injector who is a qualified Nurse. All six injectors receive frequent dedicated training sessions in the latest techniques in dermal filler injections including sessions dedicated to achieving natural results in individual areas of the face.
What are the risks?
The most common risk is swelling and bruising however our injectors use techniques to keep this to a minimum and will also advise you on the correct aftercare to ensure you recover quickly. More severe complications are very rare and the potential risk is low however our Doctor led team are trained to detect the signs of complications and have the right facilities and equipment to be able to respond quickly to any medical emergencies should they arise.
Will I have a follow up?
Yes, all our clients receive a free of charge follow up consultation 4 weeks after treatment, this will be with the same Doctor or Nurse injector you were treated with. Should you have concerns about your treatment our front of house team will work with you to bring your consultation forward.
What happens if something goes wrong?
All of our Doctor and Nurse injectors are fully qualified and trained to identify complications which prevent medical emergencies from happening. Should a complication arise during or after your treatment our team are on hand and have the facilities and equipment to be able to provide you with emergency medical assistance.
Will the results look natural?
Many of our clients come to us wanting to make small alterations rather than dramatic changes, we dedicate a lot of resources into making sure we can achieve natural results for our clients including dedicated training sessions for our Doctor and Nurse injectors into methods to achieve natural results and fine details along with careful product selection ensuring we use filler products which are specifically designed to produce a natural look.
Why don’t you use collagen?
The filler products we use are based on hyaluronic acid rather than collagen. Hyaluronic acid contains naturally hydrating properties, these promote a faster healing time than collagen. In addition to this, results from Hyaluronic acid based fillers can be seen immediately and tend to last longer before being reabsorbed into the body. Hyaluronic acid also promotes the natural production of collagen so collagen production will increase naturally rather than artificially.
Can filler be removed?
Yes, we provide a treatment called Hyalase, which is designed to fully dissolve filler. The treatment costs £200 and can be administered by one of our Doctor injectors. Please contact us for more information.
Do I have to be over 18?
Yes, we do not treat anyone under the age of 18 for filler treatment as we have a duty of care to make sure the client is making an informed decision.
How much is a consultation?
You will be asked to pay a £50 deposit to secure an initial consultation with one of our Doctor or Nurse injectors. This deposit is fully redeemable against any of our injectable treatments.
Am I suitable for filler treatment?
During your consultation the Doctor or Nurse injector will ask you questions to find out exactly what it is you are looking to achieve from filler treatment both physically and emotionally, if the injector thinks a different treatment would be more effective at getting the results you want, they will discuss this with you and make their recommendations in your treatment plan. They will also ask you relevant questions about your medical history. As our fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid, there are very few health conditions which make you not suitable for treatment but a limited number of conditions such as certain types of diabetes may have an affect on your treatment plan.
