Tear Troughs

The tear troughs refer to a fold extending from the inner eye corner, extending downward and outwards and causing hollowing or dark shadows under the eyes, or in severe cases, the appearance of eye bags. Tear troughs can make us look tired even after we’ve had enough sleep and can make us look older than we are. Cosmetics can help disguise the tear troughs and it can be corrected non-surgically using dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid. This procedure uses tiny injections of filler and takes about twenty minutes.

What causes tear trough?

As a result of genetic ageing there are gradual changes taking place in our face and around our eyes. The changes happen in all the layers of the face, including skin, fat, muscle, and bone.

The delicate skin around the eyes is vulnerable to sun damage and can develop fine lines and wrinkles and become saggy in texture. There is a natural slow decrease in fatty tissue under the lower eyelid and upper cheek area. The muscles of the lower lid slowly lose elasticity and no longer remain tightly tethered in place. The cheekbone and eye socket shapes are slowly receding over time to result in a lack of bony support for the skin. The rates that these changes happen vary a lot in different people, and are also linked to smoking, stress, skincare, sun exposure, body weight, and genetics.

These changes can eventually cause the tear trough depression to become puffy or bulge away from the face. When the tissue under the eye pushes outward, ‘bags’ begin to develop. The unevenness of the area can become shadowy, which in turn will look like ‘dark circles’ under the eyes. No matter how much makeup is worn, the face can still looked exhausted and drawn.

Which is the best treatment for tear trough?

Unsightly tear troughs can be efficiently corrected without surgery for both men and women. Using tiny injections of hyaluronic acid dermal filler, a significant improvement for tear troughs can be achieved. Soft fluid dermal fillers, comprised of hyaluronic acid, will gently fill the tear trough depression, making it look smoother and healthier. With the area no longer sunken, the dark ‘circles’ are reduced, as the thin skin in this area is highly reflective and shadowing is reduced when the hollowness is corrected with fillers. Best of all, the results from this treatment will be immediate. Patients leave the clinic looking refreshed, rejuvenated, even years younger.

How long do fillers last in tear trough?

The tear troughs will look better immediately and continue to improve over the following few weeks. It is important that we don’t put too much filler in the tear troughs to avoid puffiness, so we treat carefully and conservatively, and can add more if needed a few weeks later. The final results can last around 9 to 12 months.

“I am really happy”

I used to go to a different clinic which was much cheaper but I was never satisfied with the results. I always felt that the treatment was rushed. I wanted to try someone else and went to Doctor Q. He really listened to me and advised me on treatments that met my needs. I had Botox to 3 areas and filler around the mouth and nose. He is always available by phone or email for advice. I am really happy with the results.
