All About Tear Troughs, Undereyes and Dark Circles
A tear trough is a deep crease between the lower eyelid and upper cheek. These creases sometimes cast a shadow below your eyes, making you look tired. You may think you look older because of these tear troughs.
In certain individuals, tear troughs are an inherited trait. In others, tear troughs become more prominent with age because facial tissues lose volume as you get older. Meanwhile, the term “dark circles” is an umbrella term used to describe various cosmetic concerns around the eyes. Treatment for this condition is one of the most sought-after facial improvements.
There are many components to “dark circles” including genetics. Our genetics determine the thickness of our skin, underlying fat pads, and their placement. Some individuals are born with less fat in the undereye area resulting in an indentation commonly referred to as a tear trough hollow.
Age is a contributing factor and is one of the leading causes of dark undereye circles. As you age, the structure under your skin, made up of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid starts to break down, resulting in weaker skin around the eyes. This can also cause fat to shift to your bottom eyelids creating shadows and hollows in the skin below.
What Is A Tear Trough Augmentation?
Many people will not cite their noses, upper lips, or even smile lines when asked what they find most ugly about their appearance. It’s the hollows beneath their eyes that bother them. Indentations under the eyes, often known as “tear troughs,” give the face a sunken appearance and make people appear aged and worn.
Under-eye injectable fillers restore volume that has been lost as a result of aging. These FDA-approved treatments, which are manufactured from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring material, replenish the fat that patients lose under their eyes as they age.
Our entire staff at Glamour Medical is highly experienced in the use of under-eye filler. Natural tear trough fillers provide a youthful shape to the hollows beneath your eyes without the need for surgery. The treatment lasts six to twelve months, and it is done in our clinic as an outpatient procedure.
How Undereye Fillers Work
Undereye fillers use various types of injectable gels, the most popular being one made of hyaluronic acid. This treatment reduces the depth of a tear trough. The dermal filler makes the skin look firmer and more filled out.
The hyaluronic acid gel injection fills out hollows and can even stimulate the production of collagen, which can improve the overall health of the skin under the eyes. This skin is especially delicate and requires special skills like those of the Glamour Medical Aesthetics specialists.
Are You a Good Candidate for Under Eye Filler?
Anyone who has mild to moderate sagging under the eyes and is physically healthy wanting to reduce the appearance of dark circles can benefit from undereye filler treatment.
Under-eye therapies that aren’t invasive reduce the need for dangerous surgery to rearrange fat in the lower lid. If you have any of the following issues, you may be an excellent candidate for natural injectable fillers under the eyes:
- Dark circles with additional shadows from under-eye volume loss
- A hollow look under eyes or tear trough area or “deep-set eyes”
- Good skin elasticity and thickness
- A well-placed inferior orbital rim (bones above the cheekbones and under the eye)
- Fat pockets in lower eyelids
- Any under-eye depression due to aging, rapid weight loss, or genetics
Filling in depressions and shadows on the lower eyelids and cheeks with a tear-through treatment rejuvenates the lower eyelids and cheeks.
Because the skin beneath your eyes is some of the thinnest on your body, it’s important to choose the right hyaluronic acid filler solution for your needs and inject it correctly. At Glamour Medical, our medical aesthetician has years of experience administering injectable fillers that give patients attractive, long-lasting results.
While some fillers are softer than others and can be used at the skin’s surface, others must be administered near the bone. The softer the solution, the less likely it will be that you feel it under your skin after treatment. For a more comfortable treatment, ask our medical aesthetician which product can be injected near the skin’s surface.
Certain hyaluronic acid solutions absorb less water and cause less swelling than others. These solutions are thinner, which means the aesthetician can place them closer to the surface skin and use fewer injections.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Olga Nazarov, PA-C will assess the thickness and texture of the skin under your eyes. If undereye fillers are indicated, they will then determine the ideal dermal filler. In the case of hyaluronic acid fillers, the injection is mixed with lidocaine (a numbing medication) to reduce any discomfort. You will feel slight pressure and prick, but it should not be too painful. Let your aesthetician know if you have any concerns.
What Happens After The Treatment?
You may have some redness, swelling, and bruising, but the side effects usually clear up after two or three days. You will need to apply ice during those first two days and avoid strenuous activity. The area under your eyes will look fuller soon after the treatment, but full results may take a bit longer.
How Long Does The Treatment Last?
Undereye fillers are non-surgical and are temporary but may last one or two years. You may want to repeat the injection when you notice the shadows returning.
