The Tear Trough is a groove that develops between the eyelid and the cheek. As we age we lose facial volume and elasticity, one of the changes which are commonly noticed is the appearance and gradual worsening of dark circles and ‘trough-like hollows under the eyelids. Surgery to rectify the problem is not always appropriate and many clients find that they may not have the time or finances to justify such a procedure. Therefore with minimal recovery time and outstanding results, Tear Trough Fillers can be the ideal treatment.

What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal Fillers have become an increasingly popular treatment. Dermal Fillers were originally composed of Collagen. However, Collagen Fillers are permanent and bind to the tissue of the skin, therefore, their use has steadily declined.
At Skin n Tonic Aesthetics we use Dermal Fillers are based on Hyaluronic Acid which has been nicknamed by the press as the ‘Key to the fountain of youth’. Hyaluronic Acid exists in all living organisms in the human body and is a natural component of the skin and is present in connective tissue throughout the body. Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the deeper layer of skin where it keeps skin smooth and plump.
