Tear Trough Filler, also known as Undereye Filler, offers a solution to enhance the appearance of dark circles or sunkenness under the eyes. Utilizing hyaluronic acid facial fillers presents a more enduring fix for persistently tired eyes.

Your eyes stand out as one of your most prominent features, but if they appear weary, swollen, or hollow, they can prematurely age your entire visage. Swollen or hollow-looking eyes often stem from issues with the tear trough—the area where the lower eyelid meets the upper cheek. The tear trough region is particularly prone to the effects of aging, leading to noticeable protrusion over time.

The tear trough, or nasojugal groove, constitutes the inner part of the lower eyelid. With age, there’s a natural reduction in fatty tissue beneath the lower eyelid and upper cheek. Consequently, the skin and muscles around the lower lid gradually lose elasticity, causing the tear trough depression to puff up or bulge outward.

This outward push of tissue under the eye results in the formation of “bags,” contributing to a shadowy appearance akin to dark circles. Despite efforts with makeup, the face may still appear fatigued and lackluster. Tear trough rejuvenation or correction through dermal fillers is popular among individuals seeking a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.

Expected Results after Tear Trough Injections

  • Reduction in under-eye hollowness
  • Diminished appearance of dark circles
  • Decreased under-eye swelling or “bags”
  • Overall, a more alert, refreshed, and rejuvenated look

Ideal Candidates for Tear Trough Injections

  • Experience mild to moderate under-eye hollowness
  • Wish to alleviate the appearance of dark circles
  • Frequently receive comments from acquaintances about appearing “tired” or inquiries about sleep adequacy
  • Not taking medications that affect bleeding

Tear Trough Injection Technique

The concavities between the lower eyelid and upper cheek, known as tear troughs, extend outward and downward toward the cheek. Aging exacerbates tear troughs, causing them to deepen, elongate, and darken. Precisely administering small, well-distributed amounts of hyaluronic acid filler in the tear trough region helps to smoothen the under-eye area and refresh the overall facial appearance. Medical practitioners performing tear-trough injections must possess a thorough understanding of orbital anatomy and exercise extreme caution to avoid unfavorable aesthetic outcomes and, in severe cases, medical complications.

Preferred Dermal Fillers for Tear Trough Correction

The choice of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler for tear trough injection depends on several factors, including skin type, anatomical concerns, skin texture, and thickness. Among the most commonly favored dermal fillers at Aesthetic Envy are Restylane-L and Juvederm Volbella.

Restylane-L: An FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler employing patented NASH technology to generate a smooth gel by cross-linking hyaluronic acid molecules. Restylane-L’s more fluid and spreadable consistency makes it well-suited for the tear trough region

Juvederm Volbella: Formulated using Juvederm’s proprietary VycrossT technology, Juvederm Volbella boasts an ultra-creamy texture that injects smoothly, yielding natural outcomes. It absorbs less surrounding tissue volume than traditional fillers, leading to enhanced tear-trough results with minimal risk of under-eye swelling.

Advantages of Tear Trough Fillers

  • Minimally invasive tear trough correction with fillers and fat transfer offers enduring improvement.
  • Fillers typically last six to nine months or longer, with fat transfer potentially providing even lengthier results as the fat establishes its own blood supply.
  • When administered by a qualified provider, results appear exceptionally natural without appearing overly done or artificial.
  • Little to no downtime is required post-treatment.

Candidates for Tear Trough Fillers

If you’re dissatisfied with your under-eye area, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Kasturi and our team at Aesthetic Envy is the optimal way to determine the most suitable treatment for you.

Generally, you may be a suitable candidate for tear trough correction with fillers if you’re at least 21 years old and exhibit mild to moderate tear trough deformities. Additionally, you should not be pregnant or nursing at the time of treatment.
