Tear trough filler in London
The treatment of lower lid ageing
What are tear trough fillers?
Tear trough filler is a popular treatment that aims to correct the tired appearance of tired looking eyes with the use of undereye filler. It works to replace the volume that is lost around the lower eyelid that develops with the ageing process.
It can be used not just in this area but throughout the face in areas such as the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, the marionette lines around the mouth, the cheeks and the brows. It can also be placed in combination with botulinum toxin injections to give a more rejuvenated appearance.
Should I have tear trough filler treatment?
The treatment is a good option for patients who have hollowing in the under eye area or eye bags. Some people complain fo having dark circles in the under eye area from the hollowing which can give a look of being tired even when you are not.
Filler injections can help replace lost volume in this area that happens with ageing and restore the colours of the face and in the nasojugal groove that is a line on the face that extends across the cheek in some cases. In many people they help avoid the need for plastic surgery.
If the eye bags are more extensive a surgical procedure like a blepharoplasty may be more appropriate.

How is the treatment carried out?
This is a non-surgical treatment of injectable filler placed into the tear trough area. Numbing cream may be applied so that this injection is not felt. Hyaluronic acid filler is used which can be dissolved if needed. It is used in combination with a local anaesthetic to make it more comfortable.A sharp needle is used which is very fine and blood vessels in the area are avoided to minimise the bruising. The product is placed in areas to replace the volume lost and also works to boost the collagen in the skin that is lost with ageing. If also hydrates the skin giving a softer appearance.
The procedure takes about half an hour to do and can be combined with treatment to other areas of the face. Eye filler on its own may be sufficient in some people but in others the cheek area also has a loss of volume and dermal filler to this area may also be applied. The product can also be used in combination with botulinum toxin.

What are the treatment options for complications?
Mr Ahmad Aziz is referred patients who have had complications with fillers. Complications can happen when the wrong type of product is injected or it is placed in the wrong area. If too much product is applied this can also give an unnatural look and make any eye bags or eye circles worse. Some are more likely to result in long term swelling and granulomas which can give a lumpiness and discomfort to the skin.
The side effects of dissolving injections applied to the wrong area can dissolve the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid resulting in damage to the skin structure. Treatment options include hyalruonidase, antibiotics, steroids and on occasion surgery.
