Tear Trough Filler

  • The Cooden Medical Centre offer treatments for crows feet

Tear troughs are depressions which run from the nose and all around under the eye. With the ageing process, the ligaments underneath your eyes that hold back fatty tissue start to weaken. This tissue can fall forward to form under eye bags, puffiness and dark circles.

Some are more prone to eye bags than other. This can be heredity, due to sinus infections, thyroid or kidney problems, hormonal imbalances, food or dust allergies, iron deficiency of caused by excessive caffeine, smoking and too little sleep.

Recommended treatments for Tear Troughs:

Here at The Cooden Medical Clinic we recommend the following treatments to help banish or prevent crow’s feet:

Muscle relaxing injections

Muscle relaxing injections can be used in many ways to prevent and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are a very effective way to treat crow’s feet by relaxing the facial muscles responsible for producing the problem. This treatment can be used either as a preventive treatment or to visibly soften existing lines.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers used in the tear troughs will not only improve the depression, but also thicken the skin resulting in reducing the visibly of dark blood vessel colour in the area, benefiting in the correction of dark circles.

PRP Therapy

PRP therapy has proven to be an effective way to help in the war against wrinkles, loose, saggy skin and eye bags. The growth factors found in blood platelets help to increase the production of collagen, rejuvenating the body’s cells and skin.

  • What is the tear trough?

    The tear trough is the trough that appears under the eyes, the area that becomes more pronounced as we age. Some people naturally have a slight tear trough so we don’t always correct this area, however it is a typical sign of ageing and it can be successful corrected.

    Why do we form tear troughs?

    As we age the skull slightly changes, the eye socket becomes larger and the cheekbones reduce in size which means there is less cushioning around the eyes. In addition to this, we also lose fat, in an area where it helps provide volume and support. With this gradual loss of support the tear trough can become more prominent.

    What are the risks of tear trough treatment?

    As you may be aware, the area around the eyes is one of the most difficult areas to treat. It is prone to water retention and puffiness so we have to be very careful not to place too much dermal filler here. Bruising is also quite likely around the eyes after treatment.
