Fillers for Tear Trough
The area around your eyes is delicate. The skin is thin, which is one reason this area is also one of the first to show the signs of aging. In addition to crow’s feet at the outside corners of the eyes, many people also have hollows, bags or shadows under their eyes. This gives the appearance of being tired and prematurely aged. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm® or Restylane® can remedy the situation, giving you a rested, refreshed look immediately without surgery.
The nasojugal groove, located under the inner corner of the eye and extending toward the cheekbone, is also called the tear trough. The skin in this area loses elasticity as you age. Additionally, the fatty tissue also decreases and instead of a smooth area, the tear trough begins to deepen. For some individuals, the area can look quite hollow and cause dark circles to be more pronounced. Some younger individuals can have tear trough deformities. These anomalies can create a noticeable crease between the eye area and the midface.
Non-Surgical Treatment for Tear Trough
To improve the shadowy, hollow-looking tear troughs, fillers can be used to increase volume and smooth out the area. The appearance of shadows and eye bags can also be diminished with the addition of fillers. This non-invasive alternative to surgery provides immediate results. There is no downtime with this procedure. You can resume your normal activities immediately, but refrain from strenuous activity for 24 hours.
Results with this treatment are also long-lasting, usually from nine to twelve months. You can maintain your results with annual treatments. Using fillers for treating tear trough issues is a cost-effective solution that provides you with a younger-looking, healthier appearance without going through the ordeal of surgery.
