Under Eye Fillers for Tear Troughs
Tear troughs filler is used to rejuvenate dark circles, eye bags and under-eye hollows. The tear trough develops under the eye from volume loss in the area. The face fat pads that are present in youth gradually deflate and move south, leading to hollowing, the formation of dark circles and the appearance of under-eye bags. These factors combine to give a tired and more aged look. When used for rejuvenation of under-eye hollows or dark circles, the term tear trough filler is used.
Under Eye Filler for Dark Circles
There are different causes for dark circles under the eyes. They can also be caused by volume loss, pigmentation or superficial blood vessels. Each cause has a different approach, and only dark circles from volume loss respond to under-eye filler treatment.
- The volume loss process starts in the mid to late ’30s. However, some people have less fat, and the appearance of dark under-eye circles can appear earlier.

Another approach to treating dark circles and wrinkles is collagen therapy, such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma). This is also known as the Vampire facial and can be used alone or again combined with a thin under-eye dermal filler.

Dermal fillers can be added once the platelet-rich plasma has been extracted. The tear trough fillers provide immediate results, while the PRP injections effects develop slowly.
