The tear trough refers to the crease that runs under the lower eyelid and above the upper cheek. Age or genetics can cause this trough to deepen, casting a shadow beneath your eyes. For some, this may result in a fatigued or prematurely aged appearance. Tear trough fillers are a safe and effective way to treat under eye hollows or dark circles by adding volume to this area, restoring a refreshed and more youthful look.1

What is Tear Trough Filler?
The filler most commonly used is typically composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a gel-like synthetic substance that mimics the HA naturally found in the body. When an HA filler is injected into the tear trough, it plumps the skin and reduces the depth of the tear trough, minimizing dark circles and improving skin pigmentation issues.
How Does Tear Trough Filler Work?
Tear trough filler is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves injecting a dermal filler below the eyes to add volume to the tear trough depression. HA fillers stimulate collagen production and add fullness to sagging skin under the eyes.
What to Expect During Your Tear Trough Treatment
During your tear trough treatment, your provider will review your treatment plan before applying numbing cream and swabbing the area with alcohol. Then the filler will be injected into the tear trough with well-dispersed tiny amounts of HA filler to achieve the desired effect.
