Tear trough / Under eye filler


After undergoing under-eye filler treatment, you will notice immediate changes, but the full results will become apparent around 4 weeks later. Allow your body this time to recover from any swelling or bruising for a clear view of how the filler will lay. Remember, this initial step may be followed by a second appointment within 1 to 3 months for further enhancements. This additional filler ensures optimal results. Booking remains straightforward, with online options for under-eye trough filler at the same price. Once you achieve the desired under-eye rejuvenation, maintenance appointments are only needed every 9 to 12 months.

Swelling after under eye filler is common and varies from person to person. It may not always feel soft like fluid and can lead to temporary asymmetry. While most swelling subsides within 2 weeks, some residual swelling may linger until the 4-week mark. Patience is key, and remember that under eye filler can be dissolved if necessary.


Lumps and bumps are potential side effects of under eye filler, often caused by temporary swelling at the injection site. These usually diminish over 4 weeks as the swelling resolves.


Bruising is rare but possible after under eye fillers, occurring in less than 20% of cases. Keep some concealer handy to cover any bruising that may appear the following day.


Delayed Swelling is an uncommon complication that may arise weeks to months after under eye filler. Although the exact cause is unclear, occasional swelling, tenderness, or lumpiness may occur. This typically resolves on its own within a few days, but inform your Injector if you have any concerns.
