Tear Trough Filler

Giving you back your sparkle

Giving you back your sparkle

A common concern is dark circles around the eyes, or some people will often say they ‘just look tired’.

Thankfully, we can overcome these concerns with the use of dermal fillers administered to the tear troughs (the hollows beneath the eyes). The skin under the eyes is naturally thin, and this can give a tired appearance. By filling in these hollows, or using dermal fillers to tighten the upper or lower eyelids, we can successfully disguise dark circles and add volume to the area around the eyes leaving you looking refreshed and alert.

At VIVA Skin Clinics, Dr Rupert is proud to use Juvederm Fillers, one of the safest and most renowned brands.

Common questions

  • The eyes are a very sensitive area to treat. However, many modern dermal fillers contain anaesthetic to help ease any discomfort. We can also use a numbing cream to further aid this procedure should you be particularly sensitive. Most patients find this treatment to be comfortable and without pain, likened much like a pin prick to the skin.

  • As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Any potential side effects will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Rupert. Any swelling should subside within around 48 hours and bruising can be easily concealed using makeup.

  • Following tear trough fillers, you can expect to look refreshed and alert with a brighter, more youthful eye area. Dark circles will be eradicated and the eyes will appear more open and lifted to give your eyes a more youthful open look. The eyes are used for both seeing and communicating and are the main point of focus of the face. You can be confident that following tear trough filler treatment, you will look awake and refreshed like you’ve had a great ‘weeks’ sleep!

  • Tear trough filler is a safe treatment (when administered by a professional injector). It is important that you are only treated by a highly qualified practitioner. Any risks will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation, though they are few. We only use the most effective and safest FDA approved products at VIVA Skin Clinics.

Client reviews

Everything about my experience was wonderful. I suffer from anxiety, so I was extremely anxious beforehand, but Dr Critchley immediately put me at ease with his calming, friendly, and fun demeanour. I noticed a few reviewers saying that they had to wait a while to be seen, but this wasn't the case with me. I had a 3-5 minute wait at most. The procedure itself is very brief and I have absolutely no bruising. Before having treatment it's important to have a realistic expectation of what can be achieved. Dr Critchley was honest with me and said that my under eye circles really weren't that bad, but that we all have some sort of creasing under our eyes, meaning that no amount of filler can completely obliterate ALL traces of under eye circles. However, the fillers have done wonders for my self-esteem, as the improvement to the appearance of my eyes is substantial. Now I can happily go outside without 5 layers of concealer! I definitely wouldn't go anywhere else for my fillers. Thank you Dr Critchley!

Within 5 minutes of meeting Dr. Rupert, I knew he had the answers to what I’ve been searching for! This was my first time ever getting any cosmetic work done, so I was a little nervous, but Dr. Rupert was very reassuring. He was informative in every step throughout the process, from educating me beforehand to what exactly was happening during each injection.I really appreciate his attention to detail to ensure the most natural enhancements. Overall, I had the absolute best experience and am beyond thrilled with my results!

I am not sure about the treatment itself although Dr. Rupert as a person is nice and professional. Had to top up the Botox as did not work and still not good work after the second top up, plus I am having new wrinkles now after the dermal fillers around the mouth. Left side of the face looks different to the right side after dermal fillers. Overall, not impressed. I subsequently heard dermal fillers don't really work to get rid of marionette lines( this is my primary concern) and I can see why now. I also wish all face treatment salons/clinics start using proper day light angle rather than showing me my "before and after" photos taken in a place with no natural light.

Love love love Dr Rupert and what he does, I recommend him to all my friends. People have commented how surprised they are I’ve had Botox/fillers as it looks so natural. He makes you feel so comfortable and at ease and I trust him 100% with my face. I won’t go to anyone else.

I had been considering tear trough fillers for a while because I was very unhappy with the darkness of my under eyes. After doing some research I found the VIVA Skin Clinic and decided to book a consultation. As a newbie to cosmetic enhancements world, I was scared of what to expect and how it would all go but once I met Dr. Rupert Critchley I really felt put at ease and comfortable so I decided to go ahead not only with the tear through filler procedure but also with botox for my gummy smile. Neither of the treatments were painful, just a little unconfortable. All I can say is that Dr. Critchley is amazing and the results for both procedures made me very happy, my confidence has been boosted, I haven't felt this good about myself in a long time. Highly recommended :-)
