When the skin under our eyes begins to change and tear troughs appear, it can make us feel about as old and as tired as they make us look! Tear troughs tend to develop as we age, so when it comes to facial aesthetics, many people seek ways to rejuvenate the eye to regain a youthful appearance. If you’ve been searching ‘under eye filler near me’ or ‘tear trough treatment London’, then this article will help you to discover the three best tear trough treatments available to you, because there are many options other than just tear trough filler, including tear trough threads and tear trough mesotherapy.
What Are Tear Troughs?
Tear troughs appear due to tissue volume loss and ligament tension, creating sagged or creased skin folds from the lower eyelid to the nose and cheek. You may notice them as they can create the appearance of dark circles, bags and an overall tired and aged look around the eye. Tear troughs can be prominent from the age of 30 or sometimes earlier because they aren’t only triggered by ageing, but they can also develop due to genetics, sun exposure and stress.
How Can You Fix Under Eye Bags and Dark Circles?
Have you been wondering what is the best treatment for under the eye? Well, the answer depends on whether you have dark circles, bags or overall ageing eye area concerns. It also depends on what outcome you want for the short and long term. It should not be only up to you to know what’s best though; tear trough London specialist Alice at Harley Street Injectables always assess her client’s skin conditions and concerns in the initial consultation, recommending the appropriate treatment to achieve the best results.
Luckily, there are many innovative non-invasive and non-surgical techniques to reverse and mask the signs of ageing around the eyes. Harley Street Injectables offers its clients three highly effective treatments, providing unique benefits that suit each individual’s needs. These treatments are tear trough filler, tear trough threads and tear trough mesotherapy.
Tear Trough Filler
This popular non-surgical method of eye rejuvenation works by using a fine needle or cannula to inject hyaluronic-based dermal filler to the areas suffering from volume loss under the eye. Numbing cream is used to avoid the discomfort of injections in the sensitive area. The filler plumps and corrects the eye area, creating a refreshed look. By filling and lifting the hollowed skin, the tear trough crease is gone, also meaning that the dark shadow under the eye goes with it. Tear trough filler is a quick procedure and the results are instant. There is little to no downtime, only some minor swelling or bruising is possible, which subsides in a few days. The Juvederm hyaluronic-based filler that is used in this treatment is metabolized better than other fillers. This means that the treatment can last up to two years, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the filler. This type of filler is recommended because as we age, our facial anatomy changes, so we may not like the look long-term. You might also want to try another treatment once the filler wears off, so this is a safe option, especially if you’re getting tear trough filler for the first time. This treatment is suitable for all ages but works particularly well in earlier stages of tear trough concerns.

Tear Trough Threads
The tear trough PDO thread procedure has recently gained a lot of traction, with threads becoming a popular and long-lasting non-surgical option for lifting the face. Threads help strengthen and tighten the skin, improve skin elasticity, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Threads are excellent for under the eye because they stimulate collagen production and lift hollowed skin and wrinkles to create a smooth and refreshed appearance. As this is a thread treatment for the delicate eye area, it must be performed by an experienced aesthetic practitioner. Harley Street Injectables uses a local anaesthetic for this treatment. There is little to no downtime with tear trough threads, and the results are immediate, lasting for up to two years. This treatment is best suited for people between the ages of 30 and 60.

Tear Trough Mesotherapy
Tear trough mesotherapy is the latest treatment available to clients at Harley Street Injectables. For this non-surgical eye rejuvenation treatment, a series of small hyaluronic acid injections are made into the middle layer of the skin under the eye, being the epidermis and mesoderm. The hyaluronic acid instantly nourishes and hydrates the skin, appearing firm and plump. Long-term, the treatment also stimulates collagen and elastin production. Tear trough meso, like the other tear trough treatments, has little to no downtime, only some initial tenderness and swelling that subsides within 48 hours. Depending on the condition of your under eye, you may require up to four treatments with 2-4 weeks in between each. The treatment takes between 30 and 60 minutes, and the results can last from 12 to 18 months.
