Tear trough fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume in the under-eye area. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, injected with meticulous care, will smooth the sunken look of tear troughs. When injected into the skin, the filler restores volume, smoothing indentations and increasing fullness for a more youthful, refreshed look.

Am I a candidate for tear trough fillers?

Tear troughs are deep creases or indentations between the lower eyelid and the upper cheek. They can cast shadows underneath the eyes, making you look tired and older. You may be a candidate for tear trough fillers if you have a mild to moderate case of deep tear troughs.

How does it work?

The process of smoothing sunken tear troughs is relatively fast. A dermal filler is selected, and then it is injected with a very tiny cannula to add volume and resolve the sunken, tired look.

What should I expect with tear trough filler treatment?

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin before treatment to increase your comfort. Dr. Mesa will inject the filler into the skin beneath your lower eyelid and lightly massage the area to distribute the filler. The procedure is then repeated below the other eyelid.

Is there any downtime with tear trough fillers?

There is minimal downtime after a tear trough filler treatment. Most people are ready to return to work in two to three days. You may have some swelling, bruising, and redness which should subside in a few days. Apply ice to the treatment areas during the first 48 hours, and avoid strenuous activity for two days after the procedure.

What causes tear trough deformity?

Tear troughs can deepen with the aging process, and the eyelids can lose elasticity. These conditions can lead to sagging and fat accumulation beneath the eye, further deepening tear troughs. Deep tear troughs can cause puffiness and bags under the eyes, adding years to your appearance.

How soon will I see results with tear trough fillers?

The areas under your lower eyelids will look fuller immediately after treatment, but it may take a week or two to see the final results.

How long do tear trough fillers last?

Results are temporary with tear trough fillers. To maintain the results, you will need to undergo a repeat treatment every year or so.

Can tear trough fillers be combined with other treatments?

Fillers can be combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a natural healing serum produced from your very own blood that triggers regeneration of the skin and the production of collagen to reduce the appearance of dark circles. To obtain PRP, we draw a small amount of your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to create this powerful, natural serum.

What are the benefits of tear trough fillers?

Tear trough fillers can help create a smoother, more youthful appearance. This treatment can improve dark circles and reduce puffiness under the eyes for a younger, more rested and energetic look.
