Tear troughs are a major source of concern for many individuals.

They are the hollows found in between the lower eyelids and the adjoining cheeks. With them come dark circles under the eyes, sunken eyes, an ageing appearance, and a perpetual look of fatigue which is hard to disguise with make up.

Whether as a consequence of aging, habits, or genetics, tear troughs can fortunately be corrected non-surgically using dermal fillers which are  directly injected into this groove formed between the lower eyelids and the cheeks, essentially lifting the tear trough to the level of the cheeks and lower eyelids, and thereby giving the area a smooth appearance.

This is done using hyaluronic acid fillers within an average of 30 minutes, and the results achieved can last approximately one year.

It is an advanced filler technique which requires injecting skills and expertise, as well as a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the area.

At Derma Institute, this procedure is taught on our Tear Trough and Cheek Masterclass (1 DAY), which will teach the delegate everything they require to confidently and safely carry out tear trough corrections on their clients.


As increasing focus is placed on the face thanks to selfies, people now notice more and more things about their faces they’d like to change.

The eyes are thought to be the focal point of our faces and as a result, it is usually the first area that signs of aging are seen.

The demand for non-surgical tear trough correction is one of the fastest rising as it allows the individual a quick fix to the problem, providing an immediate lift and rejuvenation to the entire face.

Aesthetic practitioners who have mastered this advanced dermal filler treatment stand at an added advantage by keying into the rising demand for it. Gaining expertise in this procedure adds to your credibility, while giving you the avenue to improve your earnings, and increase patient satisfaction rate, with only a short time spent.


The tear trough correction procedure is taught on Tear Trough and Cheek Masterclass (1 DAY).

Intending delegates for this advanced course are expected to have completed our foundation courses that teach basic dermal filler injection procedures, and should have had some experience in injecting.


Derma Institute’s Tear Trough Correction course will provide you with expert training in every aspect of this procedure which would ensure you’re fully qualified and ready to offer the treatment.

You will learn the following:

  • The anatomy of the peri-orbital region and tear troughs including the neurovascular framework.
  • The patient consultation and assessment process that ensures optimum results.
  • Pre-treatment client evaluation with regard to the quality of the skin, its colour, hollowness of the orbit, or amount of orbital fat.
  • Facial aging especially around the peri-orbital region.
  • Selection of candidates for treatment, management of patient expectations, anaesthesia use, as well as patient after-care.
  • Requisite knowledge of product selection through learning the different brands of suitable dermal fillers available on the market.
  • Knowledge and understanding of possible complications or adverse effects and their management, including the use of hyaluronidase enzyme to dissolve fillers should the need arise.
  • Avoiding complications through safer injection techniques that consider angle and depth of injections.
  • Needle vs cannula technique selection for tear trough markers.
  • Learning to differentiate tear troughs from pseudo tear troughs and how to approach treatment for each.
  • Carry out at least one tear trough correction procedure on a live model patient provided by Derma Institute.
