What are tear trough fillers?
A Tear trough filler procedure is a cosmetic protocol that utilizes hyaluronic acid-based fillers (Restylane and Juvederm) to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. These deep tear troughs result in shadows that look like dark circles.
Tear trough fillers are designed to aid patients in reversing a sunken-in appearance and deep indentations in the under-eye region. Patients with this condition may notice visible blood vessels that lie just below the surface of their skin, making the appearance of tear troughs even more pronounced. Deep tear troughs can also cause a separation between the cheeks and lower eyelids, giving the eyes a sunken-in look and exacerbating aging in the face.
It’s no secret that the skin in this area is some of the thinnest on the body. As such, great care must be taken when selecting a dermal filler and having it injected into the face. Dr. Paul has many years of experience using these injectables, allowing him to help his patients achieve their ideal look.
