Darkness under the eyes can be evident at any age due to the skin being particularly thin and the area housing a large amount of blood vessels. These can dilate due to allergies, or be more evident due to skin pigmentation, also poor circulation can cause blood vessels to be especially evident under the eyes.
Fat pads under our eyes make the blood vessels underneath less evident and therefore give a brighter appearance. Weight loss can cause these fat pads to lose volume and make the under eye area take a blueish colour reflecting the veins underneath.
As we age, the fat pads in our face become thinner, giving our face a more gaunt appearance. The fullness typically associated with youth isn't just due to the top layer of the skin, the thickness of the fat pads contributes towards how hollow and saggy the skin appears, as it has less structural support.
We use dermal filler to re-create the natural shape of your fat pads and restore fullness to your mid-face.
As we age, our bones also undergo structural changes. We see an overall decrease in volume, with one prominent change being in the eye sockets, which become both longer and wider in men and women. This lack of support from the bones in the eye socket area can contribute to a more hollow appearance. Moisturising and cleansing unfortunately cannot rectify the foundational support that was previously offered by our bones.
A dark under eye area and eye bags can also simply be caused by genetics, as the shape, depth and strength of eye sockets and cheekbones varies from person to person.
Tear trough filler can restore the structure of a weaker mid-face and give a more youthful appearance.

Our patients commonly complain of having sunken eyes, hollowing under eyes, bags under the eyes and grooves under the eyes. Our patients usually describe themselves as having puffy eyes, sagging under-eyes, dark circles under the eyes and wrinkles under the eyes. The area under the eye can make you appear to have dark under eyes, swollen eyes, or even hollow eyes.
A lot of our female clients have complained of their concealer creasing under the eye which leads to unflattering horizontal lines under the eyes.
At Dr Aesthetica we only use established and FDA approved brands of dermal filler. The cost varies on the amount of filler used. The treatment options are discussed with you before any treatment is carried out.
Treatment completed by Consultant Doctor using microcannula technique for safety, less downtime and optimal results.
Some patients have deep tear troughs and may need more than 0.5ml on each side. Please note that we do not put more than 0.5ml each side as it can lead to swollen eye bags. We therefore recommend returning 2 weeks later to further top up the tear trough area.
At Dr Aesthetica we use a micro cannula to feed the filler to correct area. The advantage of this being only 1 entry point minimising the risk of bruising or injury. Micro cannulas are also a safer and more comfortable procedure. Micro cannulas are different to needles in that they are soft plastic tube with no sharp point, which therefore makes it safe to use in sensitive areas such as around the eyes. Topical numbing cream can also be used to help reduce the discomfort.
Tear trough filler can be carefully placed around the under eyes to improve the appearance of sunken eyes. Often several treatments are required in order to achieve the desired look. This results in a more refreshed and rejuvenated under eye area. It is not uncommon to treat the outer aspects of the under eye as well in order to give the best result.
Tear trough fillers are a cosmetic treatment, and therefore as with all procedures it carries a risk that something could go wrong. This is a safe procedure when performed by experienced and qualified Doctor as it would be at Dr Aesthetica.
When you are seen at Dr Aesthetica, a full medical is undertaken, along with professional before and after photos. All patients are booked for a follow up appointment. Should the unexpected happen we are able to prescribe appropriate treatments and reversal agents if required.
Someone might seek treatment for their tear troughs if they are unhappy about the loss of fat around the eyes and increased darkness of skin. This can lead to a sunken look which can make you look worn out. Candidates will often hear from friends and family about how tired they are looking, even if they are feeling well rested.
You can expect the procedure to last around 30 mins. At Dr Aesthetica we complete a full medical on all patients, alongside taking before and after photos. We also use numbing creams to help make it more comfortable.
We advise that tear trough fillers last around 9-12 months on average. When results fade, as they will with time, treatment can be repeated.
You should avoid massaging the area for up to days while the filler is still soft. This will prevent any movement of the filler and will keep the finished result looking perfect.
At Dr Aesthetica, we complete tear trough filler with microcannula. We use a variety of Dermal fillers. We charge £400 for treatment of both eyes with Dr Farmah
