Revolutionising Tear Trough Treatments at Canova Medical, Wilmslow & Cheshire

Imagine a world where shadows under your eyes no longer tell a tale of tiredness or age. That world is here at Canova Medical, where our dedicated team offers non-surgical tear trough treatments to eliminate those shadows and restore volume under your eyes, helping you achieve a youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Understanding Tear Troughs

A tear trough is a natural indentation that runs from the inner corner of the eye, arching down in a semi-circle. It becomes more noticeable with age as our skin loses elasticity and volume. This can result in a shadowed or sunken appearance under the eyes, which can be mistaken for tiredness or ill-health. Tear trough deformity is a common condition and a major concern for those who experience it. However, the good news is that it can be effectively treated non-surgically. Tear troughs are often confused with eye bags or dark circles due to the similar appearance they create. Eye bags occur due to sagging skin or excess fat under the eyes, creating a shadow on the cheeks.

Dark circles, on the other hand, result from thin skin under the eyes, revealing blood vessels and pigmentation. Tear troughs appear when the muscle under the eye anchors to the orbital bone. If there is a lack of fat in the area, whether due to genetics or the natural ageing process, it results in a hollow, casting a shadow under the eye. This condition has traditionally been difficult to treat, making many individuals feel uncomfortable or insecure about their appearance. Fortunately, our team at Canova Medical, located in Wilmslow and serving patients across Manchester and Cheshire, can help.

What Does the Tear Trough Treatment Involve?

Tear trough treatment is an innovative solution to the age-old problem of under-eye shadows. This procedure involves injecting hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers into the under-eye area to restore lost volume, reducing the appearance of the shadow and enhancing your overall look. During the procedure, our expert team injects the filler under your eye and at the top of your cheek to fill the hollow, reducing the depth of the trough. Besides adding volume, dermal fillers also stimulate collagen production, resulting in thicker, healthier skin with less pigmentation. They also enhance hydration in the undereye area by absorbing more fluid from your body. The outcome is a smoother, fuller, and brighter tear trough that gives you a refreshed and more youthful appearance.

Addressing Tear Trough Concerns

Tear trough deformity, a common condition, can cause discomfort and anxiety. This condition is characterised by a sunken area beneath the lower eyelid extending down to the top of the cheeks. It can create a shadow or a darker, pigmented area of skin that portrays a weary appearance, even after a good night’s rest.

Distinguishing Tear Troughs, Eye Bags, and Dark Circles

The causes of tear troughs are frequently mistaken for eye bags or dark circles as they present similar appearances, albeit different origins. Eye bags are a result of sagging skin or surplus fat beneath the eye, leading to a shadow on the cheeks. Conversely, dark circles occur due to thin skin under the eye, which exposes blood vessels and other pigmentation prominently. In contrast, tear troughs appear when the muscle beneath the eye is ‘anchored’ to the orbital bone.

Coupled with the lack of fat in the area, either genetic or induced by ageing, it leads to a hollow or trough, casting a shadow under the eye. While dark circles can be concealed with makeup, tear troughs and eye bags are harder to mask due to the shadow they cast on the cheek, causing discomfort or insecurity in appearance. Our non-surgical solution for tear troughs, using hyaluronic acid fillers, provides a welcome relief to such concerns, boosting volume and reducing the ‘shadowed’ effect under the eyes.

Revolutionary Tear Trough Treatment

Our tear trough treatment employs safe and advanced techniques that use hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers to enhance the under-eye area, effectively reducing shadow appearance.

The Process

During the treatment, we inject dermal filler carefully into the area under the eye and at the top of the cheek to fill the hollow under the eye and diminish the depth of the trough. The fillers help rejuvenate and smooth the tear trough area, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin quality. This leads to thicker, stronger skin with less pigmentation, enhances hydration in the under-eye area, and results in a plumper and brighter appearance.

The Wonder of Dermal Fillers and its Cost

Dermal fillers (you can check our price list here), primarily composed of hyaluronic acid, are injected into the treatment area to enhance volume, revitalise the area, and produce instant results. They effectively reduce wrinkles, contributing to the appearance of smooth skin. These treatments, usually completed in less than 30 minutes, provide swift and remarkable outcomes.

Personalized Treatment Plan

On your treatment day, our experienced team ensures your comfort by applying numbing cream before injecting the dermal filler. We then gently massage it to attain the desired result.

Our Tear Trough Treatment

Tear troughs are a common issue that presents itself as a hollow or dark area below the lower eyelids, leading to a tired appearance, irrespective of your sleep schedule. Various factors contribute to the appearance of tear troughs, such as ageing, genetic disposition, and even lifestyle habits. Fortunately, Canova Medical provides non-surgical tear trough treatments aimed at adding volume to the under-eye area and mitigating the ‘shadowed’ effect. Our method utilises the power of hyaluronic acid fillers, a safe and proven solution.

What is the Tear Trough Treatment?

Our tear trough treatment is a pioneering and safe procedure that leverages the benefits of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. It focuses on reviving the under-eye area by enhancing volume, smoothness, and brightness, thereby minimising the shadow under the eye. The process involves the careful injection of the dermal filler into the skin beneath the eye and the upper cheek. This helps fill the hollow under the eye, reducing the tear trough’s depth. Dermal fillers not only rejuvenate and smooth out the tear trough area but also stimulate collagen production, leading to healthier, more robust skin with reduced pigmentation. Additionally, they promote increased fluid absorption from the body, improving the under-eye area’s hydration.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an essential part of non-surgical, injectable treatments. The gel substance is injected into the treatment zone, leading to enhanced volume and revitalisation of the area. Dermal fillers provide instant results, smoothing out wrinkles and leading to a more youthful appearance. Our dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a safe compound for skin treatment. During your consultation, our experienced practitioners will assess your medical history and potential allergies to ensure dermal fillers are a suitable treatment for you.

Your Experience at Canova Medical

Our primary goal is to help our patients feel confident and comfortable in their skin. We use our extensive medical knowledge to provide effective aesthetic treatments that deliver transformative results. Before the treatment, our skilled team will carry out a detailed consultation and assessment to determine the best treatment for your specific needs. Once we confirm that the tear trough treatment is ideal for you, we’ll apply a numbing cream before injecting the dermal filler. Our treatment is painless and completed quickly, ensuring minimal disruption to your daily routine.

Post-Treatment Care & Possible Side Effects

After your tear trough treatment, we recommend avoiding makeup application for at least 24 hours, not exercising heavily for 48 hours, and refraining from touching the treated area within the first six hours. While side effects are minimal, some patients may experience slight bruising, redness, or swelling in the treatment area. These symptoms typically subside within a few days. Our team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure you enjoy the best possible results.
