Tear trough filler, or injectable hylauronic acid filler such as Juvederm®, is a popular cosmetic treatment that can restore tired eyes or dark circles to give a refreshed appearance to the under eye area and help restore skin laxity and lost volume. Tear trough filler is an excellent choice for non-surgical solution because it offers subtle results with minimal downtime. The procedure itself takes around 30 minutes to complete and can usually be performed during your lunch break so you can return to work immediately afterwards. The results will generally last for around 6 months although some individuals may notice a gradual reduction in fullness over time. If you are interested in rejuvenating your eyes without surgery then tear trough filler is the perfect solution!

 

What is a tear trough?

To understand the ins and outs of this popular facial rejuvenation procedure, you first need to understand what a tear trough is. A tear trough is the lower eyelid area between the lower eyelid and eyebrow – this is where the tears drain from the eye.

The skin of the lower eyelid has a natural depression in the shape of a crescent moon called the tear trough.

What causes tear troughs?

The cause of a tear trough is from a depression or hollow that occurs below the eyes due to a loss of subcutaneous fat in this area. This results in excess skin over the bony orbital rim. As we age the tissues around the eye weaken and as a result the skin may begin to sag and form wrinkles around the eyes. These “troughs” can develop at any stage of life however, they are generally more noticeable as we get older due to the weakening of tissues around the eye and formation of wrinkles. When this happens, it can cause the skin of the eyelids to appear wrinkled and give the face a tired look or sunken look.

Dermal fillers are a safe and non-invasive procedure that helps to restore this loss of Volume. These fillers are injected directly into the area where the loss of volume occurs. They add volume and lift the skin to restore the youthful appearance of the eyes.

How long does filler last?

The effects of filler can last anywhere from six to nine months. Duration depends on the patient’s individual response to the treatment and at home maintence.
