Tear Trough Treatment (Philadelphia)Before & After Photos
Our eyes are often the first thing people notice about us, and they can convey emotions, personality traits, and even health status. If your eyes appear tired and hollow, it can age you considerably and make you feel self-conscious.
These early changes around the eyes are described as lower lid bags. They can sometimes be treated with fillers alone — known as tear trough treatment or tear trough fillers — to fill the hollow in your eyes for a fuller, younger, and healthier appearance.
WHAT IS THE TEAR TROUGH?
It’s a hollow where tears would collect when they run down your face unwiped. Some say that the tear trough is an illusion created by shadows in the bulging lower lid, or a surface shape hollow under the lower lid due to thinning of skin and increased visibility of the cheekbone that supports the lower lid.
The tear trough actually represents an area of muscle and ligamentous attachment at the bone of the orbital rim. As we age, it hollows as the volumes of the cheeks diminish and begin to hang.
Augmenting this area with hyaluronic acid filler conservatively lessens the hollowing and makes the lower lid appear more youthful.
TEAR TROUGH INJECTION WITH A BLUNT CANNULA
Done in the office with local anesthesia, the procedure takes about 30 minutes. The delicate tissues of the eyelids can bruise, but concealing makeup can be used (even in men!) 24 hours after the procedure and patients can look presentable with an improved look almost immediately.
The tear trough is the dark hollow that forms between the lower eyelid and the cheek.
