Tear trough filler treatment consists of the dermal filler being injected into the hollow area that starts from the inner corner of your eye, running diagonally down to towards your cheek. The hollowing of the eye areas occurs due to age, causing the loss in volume in this area. The effects of this volume loss cause under-eye dark circles, hollows and eye bags. In some cases, the dark circles could show as a shadow which can extend along the cheek (known as ‘nasojugal groove’) or towards the outer corner of the eye (known as a ‘palpebromalar groove’).
Dermal fillers can be injected into the hollowing of the tear trough, nasojugal groove or palpebromalar groove to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, brighten the areas to give a fresher looking appearance. The cannula technique is used for Tear trough treatment inserted into the cheek below the eyes. This ensures that the treatment is safe, painless and with minimal risk of bruising or swelling.
