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.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
