As we age, the tear trough is one area that both men and women will experience a decline in. Tear trough filler treatment is a way to correct the gradual sinking of the area under the lower eyelid that creates a constantly tired look due to the darker coloured skin in that area.
A loss of volume that is present in the orbital area widens the bone socket’s appearance, causing an indentation under the lower eyelid. The darker skin colour under the eyelid is caused by the depressed part of the lower lid or exposed deep structures under the thinned lower eyelid skin.
All of these leads to an older, more tired look. Me Clinic can help rectify this with tear trough filler Melbourne patients can access with ease. Read on to learn more about one of our several eye surgery options.
Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

The benefits of tear trough filler treatment
This non-surgical treatment aims to improve the appearance of the tear trough by restoring volume with dermal fillers over the orbital margin. This restores a more youthful look, giving a less-tired appearance and boosting your self-confidence.
A thin needle or a cannula is all that is required to inject the filler, performed under topical anaesthesia which will help minimise discomfort. In more extreme cases, patients may require a surgical correction to create a redistribution of the eye bags.
This non-surgical treatment will correct the depression of the tear trough by restoring volume with dermal filler over the orbital margin.
Understanding tear troughs and eye bags
The indents between the lower eyelid and cheeks are one of the many facial elements that can be affected by the ageing process. The junction between the lower eyelid and cheek will hollow as we get older. This can also be a genetic issue that appears for those affected in the early twenties.
Other elements in this region, such as eye bags in the lower eyelid area, can also create a tired or bulged appearance. Eye bags are often the opposite issue however, as they are fat or fluid-filled. Dermal fillers can help to fill and smoothen the space between the lower eyelid and the cheek or make eye bags less noticeable.
Taking advantage of a non-surgical treatment option
The team at Me Clinic use of a non-surgical injection which means eye bags and tear troughs may be treated. Dermal fillers will be injected under the hollow to connect the lower eyelid and cheek, smoothening the appearance. The duration of results can vary and may last for many months in some cases.
Dermal fillers can also replace volume in the mid-cheek area, by filling the mid-cheek and tear trough, reducing the impact of eye bags. They can also be used on a range of other facial areas, which is why many patients choose to opt for more than one treatment at a time.
What will tear trough filler cost?
The total cost of a tear trough filler procedure can vary depending on your specific requirements. This includes the cost of the procedure itself, as well as any potential additional costs such as follow-up appointments or aftercare.
