The junction under the eye area, between the lower eyelid and the cheek is called the tear trough. Over time dark circles and hollowing may cause many people to feel that this area makes them look tired or appear older than they really are. It is often a result of genetics rather than aging but can also be due to lifestyle and lack of sleep.
We can treat this area with dermal fillers. It is quite a specialized treatment and can help dramatically improve the appearance of this area by adding volume thereby smoothing out the skin and reducing the dark shadows. Results can be seen immediately, however some swelling or bruising may be present for a few days after. The effect of this treatment should last between 8-18 months.
The area around your eyes is an extremely delicate and complex anatomical region, containing lots of nerves, arteries and ligaments. If you are concerned with this area, a thorough consultation with one of our highly skilled practitioners is required to determine the best treatment options for you.
