As we age skin sags and facial fat facial decreases underneath the skin between our lower eyelids and upper cheeks, this results in a ‘hollow’ tear-trough. Eye bags can then develop by protruding normal fatty tissue under the eyes.
The underlying cause for the protruding under eye bags (fatty tissue) is the same as for the tear trough; namely loss of collagen and lack of support by surrounding tissues, which would normally hold the fatty tissue in its place.
In the past the only option would have been to surgically remove the fatty tissue but for those that want to avoid going under the knife there is a non-invasive, subtle treatment option available nowadays. Using Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers we can fill out the tear-trough hollow providing a soft and natural correction, bringing it back in line with the skin level and reducing the appearance of the ‘bag’.

The area between the lower eyelid and upper cheek is referred to as the 'Tear Trough'. As we age these change in appearance becoming longer, deeper and more shadowed, which can give a tired and less youthful appearance. For those that want to avoid going under the knife this tear-trough treatment is the perfect solution. It is a subtle treatment but one that makes all the difference. Dermal filler is injected along the line of the hollow of the tear troughs for a soft and natural correction brings it back in line with the skin level. The area is then gently massaged to ensure even distribution of the product.Find Out More
