With age the skin around the eye thins and we lose the supporting fat pad around the eye socket & upper cheekbone creating a sunken, groove which can make us look tired.
Our tear trough treatments incorporate a highly specialised injection technique using a safe blunt cannula and Teosyal Redensity II which is specifically formulated to lift, smooth & brighten the under eye area. The hyaluronic gel contains 8 amino acids, 3 vitamins & minerals to fortify and brighten the treated area as well as lidocaine local anaesthetic for your comfort.
Unlike ordinary fillers, Redensity does not absorb water which avoids making puffy eye bags!
Treatment results in natural looking, long lasting results before gradually being broken down by the body. Reassuringly we can also safely dissolve the product if you don’t like the effect.
From £300 includes consultation & post procedure review appointment
Treatments by our Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner who has specific training & experience in tear trough injection techniques – Please see details below
When comparing treatments please consider what product will be used, is it specified as being appropriate for the eye area. Is the practitioner medically qualified with specific training in this particular area? A non-medic injector will not have sufficient anatomy knowledge to safely administer this treatment nor the skills or prescription only products to deal with any resulting medical emergency. They will not be insured!
Dermalux LED Phototherapy can be incorporated post treatment to reduce any swelling & bruising
We recommend you book a Nurse Consultation to discuss your suitability for treatment or alternative options. Appointments available Fridays 11am to 7.30pm

What happens during treatment?
After your consultation local anaesthetic cream will be applied to numb the area. The product contains local anaesthetic to reduce discomfort.
Your face will be gently marked with the injection locations. You’ll be in a sitting position whilst the dermal filler is carefully and slowly injected into the skin. This way you and your practitioner can see the correction taking place to achieve a natural, pleasing result. The treated area is gently massaged to integrate the product.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS?
Following your dermal filler treatment, it is important not to touch the treated area or apply make-up for at least six hours. This is to reduce the risk of injection-site infection.
Please bear in mind that immediately after treatment, some common anticipated injection-related reactions can occur. These reactions are temporary and typically resolve within 7-14 days. However, in order to allow the skin to recover more efficiently, the following advice may prove to be useful:
1. Redness – A clean, light make-up can be applied to cover any redness after the initial six hour recovery period.
2. Swelling – Do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. sauna, steam room and sunbathing) or to extreme cold for one week following treatment. A clean cool pack can be applied directly to the treated area. It has been reported that non-prescription anti-inflammatory analgesia (NSAIDs*) may prove useful in the reduction of swelling so long as you are medically suitable to take them. However, bruising may be enhanced and/or prolonged with the use of NSAIDs*.
3. Bruising – If you are using aspirin or similar medication, be aware that the likelihood of bruising may increase. It has been reported that Arnica** cream and/or tablets help to minimise bruising. Arnica cream can be applied directly to bruising and may help the bruise resolve more quickly. Make-up can be applied to cover bruising following the initial six hour post treatment period.
4. Discomfort – Following treatment, the area can feel tender from the injection. Non-prescription analgesia** can be taken.
5. Itching – Following treatment the treatment area may feel slightly itchy for 7-14 days. Non-prescription anti-histamines* may reduce itching.
