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.

What are Tear Trough Fillers?

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.

How Do Tear Trough Fillers Work?

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 FillerMechanism of ActionDuration of Effects
Hyaluronic Acid FillersIntegrates into body’s tissues, plumping and filling tear troughs under lower eyelids, diminishing hollowness and dark circles, providing a more youthful and rested look6-12 months
Calcium Hydroxyapatite FillersStimulates body’s collagen production, gradually building up collagen under the eyes over 1-2 years, providing continued smoother contour even after the filler breaks down1-2 years
Polymethylmethacrylate Microsphere FillersCreates a framework incorporated into body’s tissues providing tear trough correction3-5 years
Fat TransferInjections of patient’s own fat to fill tear troughs, potentially lasting for yearsVariable, 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.

Benefits of Tear Trough Fillers by Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness

Long-lasting results

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.

Effective dark circle and bag reduction

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.

Minimal downtime

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.

Safe and controlled solution

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.

Quick treatment

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.

Are You a Candidate for a Tear Trough Procedure?

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 troughsFillers 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.
Non-smokersSmoking 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 troughsAllergic 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 eyesThin, 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 disordersConditions like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. can impact how the body responds to and heals from filler injections. This can increase risks and reduce effectiveness.

If you meet the criteria above, get in touch with Ethos Aesthetics + Wellness today to get started.

Our Tear Trough Filler Process

1. Consultation

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.

2. Preparation

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.

3. Injection

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.

4. Immediate effects

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.

5. Maintenance

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.

Aftercare for Under Eye Injections

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. 

Below are aftercare instructions to ensure a swift and smooth recovery:

  • Applying ice packs to the under eye area for the first 12-24 hours can help reduce swelling and bruising. Do it for 10-15 minutes at a time, several times a day.
  • Try not to touch or rub the injected under eye area for at least a few hours. This can spread the filler and cause bumps.
  • Sleeping with your head elevated above your heart for the first 1-2 nights can help reduce swelling and bruising.
  • Taking arnica orally or applying arnica gel topically can aid bruising and healing.
  • Taking over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen, and anti-inflammatory medication to aid healing.
  • Wearing compression eye masks or garments for the first few days and nights may speed up the healing process.
  • Use gentle skin care products under the eyes for at least the first week. Avoid harsh cleansers, scrubs, and products with irritation potential.
  • Avoid heavy lifting, intense exercise, saunas, and steam rooms for at least a week to minimize swelling.
  • Schedule a follow-up visit with us 1-2 weeks after the procedure to assess healing and results.
