What is tear troughfiller?
A tear trough is the area between your lower eyelid and cheek. By adding fillers to the area we can fill the hollows appear in this area and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Tear troughs can develop from early age or they can develop as we age and they often get worse over time. They can become longer, deeper or darker and sometimes a combination of these. There are associated life factors that can contribute to making the tear trough appear such as lack of sleep, stress and poor diet although are a natural part of the ageing process.
A fine grade filler is injected into the tear trough using a cannula to fill the hollow. The results are instant which brightens the skin in this area with the filler providing hydration to the area. Once filled the hollows appear flat and the light reflects of the skin correcting the dark shadow.
