Tear trough deformity can be corrected with an Hyaluronic Acid filler. It is less invasive and there may be minimal downtime due to swelling and bruising.
The volume injected varies from patient to patient and overcorrection should be avoided. Better results will be achieved if the patient is reassessed in two to four weeks and then additional treatment is performed to achieve complete correction. During the ageing process the skin under our eyes becomes lax and fat from the cheeks descends into the middle of the face leaving semi-circular depressions. This often creates a tired look. This hollow area that runs from the inner eye margin to the upper cheek is referred to as a tear trough hollow. These depressions make the eyes look ‘sunken’ and cast unflattering shadows under the eyes often known as ‘dark circles’ that can give an impression of a weary, aged appearance.
Soft tear trough fillers can be injected to bring these tear trough depressions back from the depths. By lifting these hollow areas, it can take away the tired look and lighten the dark circles caused by the shadowing effect. The treatment is subtle but extremely effective.
This is a non-surgical eye-lift treatment that can rejuvenate your look with minimal downtime.
The treatment procedure involves the careful introduction of a filler into the tear trough. That is then gently massaged into the target area to blend into the cheekbone and re-create the smooth, firm foundation for your under-eye.
