Tear Troughs

A deep tear trough can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle below the eye. It also creates a division between the lower eyelid and cheek that is an early sign of aging around the eyes. Patients with deep tear troughs often complain that they look more tired and older than they really are. A tear trough is caused by tethering of the lower eyelid skin to the underlying facial bones. As aging leads to volume loss and tissue laxity in the lower eyelid, the tear trough becomes more prominent.

Unsightly tear troughs can be corrected without surgery. Using a hyaluronic acid dermal filler like Redensity 2 patients can see a dramatic improvement in moderately deep tear troughs.
