Tear troughs: what are they and how filler can help

More and more patients are coming in and asking for help to correct volume loss underneath their eyes. Most commonly, they report that they are frustrated that people often ask them if they are “tired.”

So…what is a tear trough?

A tear trough is formed by a fold underneath the lower eye, usually running from the inner eye corner and extending downwards towards the cheek and outwards towards the outer eye. A shadow is often created, giving the appearance of a dark circle and making a person appear older and more tired. This appearance can begin even at a young age.

So, what can be done?

Filler is an excellent way to increase the volume underneath the eye in order to gain a smoother appearance and reduce under eye circle pigmentation. Here at SKINSavvy Aesthetics, we prefer Juvederm for this particular area. Juvederm is a hyaluronic acid based filler which gives a great smooth and natural look to help you look more refreshed. Downtime is minimal with possible side effects including bruising to the injected area and temporary swelling. Make sure your physician has a lot of experience with this particular area, as it is considered an advanced treatment.
