How it works

A common side effect of the ageing process is the deepening of the hollows below your eyes, known as the tear trough. This natural sign of ageing happens because soft tissue loses volume as we get older, and it is often made more noticeable through lifestyle factors such as stress and lack of sleep. This can result in dark circles around your eyes and a tired, haggard appearance that can make you look older than you feel. Luckily, you no longer have to resort to surgery to reverse the effect of ageing.

At Revitalise SkinCare Clinic, we use soft dermal fillers to make subtle enhancements to the tear troughs, filling in the hollow areas for a younger, fresher appearance. The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in your skin cells and acts as your body’s own moisturiser for supple, youthful skin.

Treatment plan

Following consultation our medical practitioner may suggest a treatment plan that includes strengthening the upper cheek to support the area, as well as treating the tear trough itself for the best cosmetic result.

This treatment is increasingly popular because it alleviates the need for painful, risky cosmetic surgery, which has traditionally been used to remove bags under the eyes.

The treatment takes around half an hour, and you will be able to return to your everyday activities soon afterwards. You will see the results of this treatment immediately, though there may be some slight swelling and bruising.

We understand patients may be concerned about undergoing injectable treatment in the eye area, with the thinner skin in the area being particularly sensitive to pain. To increase patient comfort, we use dermal fillers that contain lidocaine to help numb pain, and numbing cream is available upon patient request.

What does this treatment do?

Hollow under eye treatment, also known as tear trough treatment, has gained popularity in recent years. It is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure aimed at rejuvenating the delicate under-eye area. This treatment addresses hollowing, dark circles, and the appearance of tiredness. It helps individuals achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
At Revitalise Skincare Clinic we only use fillers which are specially licensed for under eyes and which are perfect for skin rejuvenation.

What are some of the benefits of hollow under eye treatment?

This treatment can have significant benefits to our patients. At our award winning clinics across Bath and Wiltshire we regularly treat this area of the body. Our medically trained staff will ensure you are in safe hands. Some of the benefits of this treatment include –
Reduced Appearance of Dark Circles: Tear trough treatment can diminish the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. These are often caused by shadows created by hollowing in the under-eye area.
Improved Volume and Hydration: By filling in hollows and restoring volume to the under-eye area, tear trough treatment can create a smoother, more refreshed appearance. This reduces the sunken or tired look commonly associated with hollowing.
Softened Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The filler used in tear trough treatment can help plump up the skin. It smooths out fine lines and wrinkles in the under-eye area, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.
Enhanced Overall Facial Harmony: A well-rested and rejuvenated under-eye area can contribute to a more balanced facial appearance.
Quick and Convenient Procedure: Tear trough treatment is typically quick and minimally invasive. It has immediate results and minimal downtime compared to surgical alternatives.

How does Hollow Under Eye Treatment work?

The tear trough treatment procedure typically begins with a consultation with one of our qualified cosmetic practitioners. Here we will discuss your goals, expectations, and medical history. We are experienced and well trained. We are also known for our natural achieving results.
As part of the procedure,
– The under-eye area is cleansed, and a topical numbing cream may be applied to minimise discomfort during the injection process.
 – Using a fine needle the filler is injected into the tear trough area. This will fill in hollows, smooth out wrinkles, and restore volume. The injections are administered with precision to achieve natural-looking results and avoid overfilling.
 – Throughout the procedure, we will assess the results and make any necessary adjustments to achieve optimal symmetry and balance.

What are the recovery times for tear trough treatment?

While tear trough treatment is minimally invasive, some temporary side effects may occur during the recovery period:
Swelling and Bruising: Mild swelling and bruising at the injection sites are common. These usually subside within a few days.
Sensitivity: The under-eye area may feel tender or sensitive immediately after the procedure. Again this typically resolves within a few days.
Temporary Results: Initial swelling may obscure the final results. Once it subsides, the under-eye area will appear smoother and more refreshed.

Is there anything I should avoid after Hollow Under Eye Treatment?

Patients are advised to avoid strenuous exercise, hot temperatures, and excessive sun exposure for the first 24-48 hours after treatment. This will help to minimise swelling and promote optimal healing.

Is hollow under eye treatment painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. A topical numbing cream is applied beforehand to help minimise any pain or discomfort. Additionally, our filler formulations contains a local anaesthetic to further reduce discomfort during the injection process.

How long do tear trough fillers last?

The duration of tear trough filler results varies depending on factors such as the type of filler used, individual metabolism, and lifestyle factors. On average, tear trough fillers typically last between six to 12 months before additional touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain results.

Can Hollow Under Eye Treatment completely eliminate dark circles under the eyes?

While hollow under eye treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of dark circles by filling in hollows and smoothing out wrinkles, it may not completely eliminate them. Especially if they are caused by pigmentation or other underlying factors. However, most patients experience a noticeable improvement in the overall appearance of the under-eye area.

Are there any risks or side effects associated with Hollow Under Eye Treatment?

While tear trough treatment is considered safe when administered by a trained and experienced practitioner, such as at Revitalise Skincare Clinic, there are some potential risks and side effects. These may include temporary swelling, bruising, redness or tenderness at the injection sites.

Can I wear makeup after hollow under eye filler treatment?

It is generally recommended to avoid applying makeup to the treated area for the first 24 hours after treatment to allow the injection sites to heal properly. Once any swelling or bruising has subsided, makeup can be applied as usual.

How soon can I see results after Hollow Under Eye Treatment?

Results are typically noticeable immediately after the procedure. It’s important to realise that some initial swelling may obscure the final outcome. As swelling subsides over the following days, the under-eye area will gradually appear smoother and more refreshed. We normally see optimal results visible within one to two weeks.
