Tear Trough Fillers at Hessler Plastic Surgery

If you have under-eye bags and dark circles even when you’re fully rested, you most likely have deep, prominent tear troughs. Dr. Hessler offers tear trough fillers to address these concerns and make a dramatic difference.

What are tear trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers are cosmetic injectables that are used to add volume to the delicate under-eye area and provide a refreshed, more vibrant appearance to the face. Tear trough fillers can address the following concerns:

  • Wrinkles under the eyes
  • Thinning skin under the eyes
  • Hollowed-out area under the eyes
  • Dark circles or shadows under the eyes
  • Overall fatigued appearance

Tear trough treatment details 

When you arrive for your tear trough filler appointment, you will be given a topical numbing anesthetic. After about 20 minutes, your treatment will begin. A dermal filler will be carefully and gently injected into the skin near your eyes.

The treatment will take about 15 to 30 minutes, and the dermal fillers we use for this area at Hessler Plastic Surgery include Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Evolence®, or Radiesse®. For the best results, multiple treatments will be needed.


You can return to your regular day immediately after your tear trough filler treatment, although you may experience slight swelling at the injection site. Bruises or lumps might be visible at first, but these will subside within a few days. If you want to avoid bruising, it’s smart to avoid drinking alcohol and taking NSAIDs a couple days before your treatment.


Your results will become apparent about a week after treatment. You can expect the results to last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, although this amount of time will vary according to the patient’s muscles, skin type, age, and lifestyle.
