Tired of dark circles making you look older? Tear trough fillers are a popular treatment option that help minimize under eye hollows and darkened circles for a more youthful, well-rested appearance.
Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness specializes in safe, effective tear trough filler treatments performed by certified injectors. Through fillers injected beneath the eyes, we can diminish the appearance of dark eye bags and circles caused by fat loss in the undereye region.
Tear trough fillers are a non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to treat hollows and depressions under the lower eyelids, known as tear troughs. As people age, the fat pads under the eyes atrophy, resulting in dark circles and eye bags that make the face look tired and older.
Tear trough fillers work by filling in the tear troughs, which are the hollows under the lower eyelids. This treatment can smooth out fine lines, fill eye hollows, and reduce the appearance of eye bags, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
Tear trough fillers work in different ways depending on the type of filler used. The most common fillers for tear trough treatment are:
|Type of Filler
|Mechanism of Action
|Duration of Effects
|Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
|Integrates into body’s tissues, plumping and filling tear troughs under lower eyelids, diminishing hollowness and dark circles, providing a more youthful and rested look
|Calcium Hydroxyapatite Fillers
|Stimulates body’s collagen production, gradually building up collagen under the eyes over 1-2 years, providing continued smoother contour even after the filler breaks down
|Polymethylmethacrylate Microsphere Fillers
|Creates a framework incorporated into body’s tissues providing tear trough correction
|Injections of patient’s own fat to fill tear troughs, potentially lasting for years
|Variable, potentially long-lasting
Regardless of which filler is used, all work by filling in the hollow areas under the lower eyelids called tear troughs. This lifts, smooths and plumps the under eye contour, minimizing dark circles and eye bags for a more youthful appearance. The results seen initially are often enhanced over time as the fillers biodegrade.
The ideal filler depends on an individual’s goals and preferences, so discussing options with an experienced provider is important.

Tear trough fillers provide long-lasting effects, typically between 9-12 months. This means you’ll see a reduction in your under-eye bags and circles for an extended period of time before needing to repeat the treatment.
Tear trough fillers work by filling in the hollows and grooves that cause dark under eye circles and bags. The results can be highly effective at immediately diminishing the appearance of these issues.
As a non-surgical treatment, tear trough fillers allow you to return to your daily activities right after the procedure. There is little to no bruising, swelling, or recovery time needed.
Tear trough fillers are administered carefully by a dermatologist who can ensure a precise and safe treatment. There are minimal risks when performed by an expert.
The entire tear trough filler procedure typically takes 30-45 minutes. You can quickly and easily address your under eye concerns in one simple visit.
Having a board-certified cosmetic medicine doctors perform the procedure ensures the best possible injection technique and controlled administration of the filler.
At Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness, we believe in providing a personalized treatment plan for each of our patients. We tailor a treatment plan to your unique needs, ensuring you achieve the best possible results.
Tear trough fillers can be an effective solution for reducing the appearance of eye hollows and dark circles. However, not everyone is the ideal candidate for these procedures.
|Healthy adults with moderate to severe tear troughs
|Fillers are meant to help supplement volume loss, so people with more moderate to severe under eye hollowness tend to see the best results. Those with mild tear troughs may not see a significant improvement.
|Smoking can thin skin, reduce blood flow, and slow healing. This can make filler injections under the eyes riskier and less effective.
|Those without eye conditions like severe allergies or rosacea that could worsen tear troughs
|Allergic reactions can be accompanied by inflammation and swelling under the eyes, which can make tear troughs appear worse. Getting fillers may not provide lasting benefit in those cases.
|Those without thin or fragile skin under the eyes
|Thin, fragile skin under the eyes is at higher risk for bruising and infection with filler injections. It may also mean the filler absorption occurs more quickly.
|Those without medical conditions that would interfere with the filler treatment like autoimmune disorders
|Conditions like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. can impact how the body responds to and heals from filler injections. This can increase risks and reduce effectiveness.

Initial consultations are done to examine your tear troughs, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if fillers are appropriate for you. We will also explain the treatment process and possible risks and side effects during this step.
Before the treatment, our aesthetician will clean the area and apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the injection. You may also receive antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication to reduce risks of bruising and swelling.
The filler injection itself usually takes just a few minutes. We use a very thin needle to inject the filler underneath the tear troughs to lift and augment the area.
Soon after the injection, you may experience some mild tenderness, swelling, and bruising around your eyes. Ice packs may be applied to minimize bruising and discomfort.
Some touch-up injections may be needed after 1-2 years to maintain your preferred results. We will monitor your results and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
After your tear trough filler procedure, you may experience mild swelling or redness at the injection site. These are common side effects and typically subside within a few days.
