Tear Trough Filler

Tear Trough filler is a non-surgical procedure that involves injecting hyaluronic acid beneath the eyes to add volume while reducing the depth of tear troughs and creating a fuller, tighter, and more youthful appearance.
Tear Trough Filler

The delicate skin beneath your eyes deserves the utmost care. Over time, tear troughs, the area beneath your lower eyelid and upper cheek, can lose volume and appear dark or sunken. These changes are caused by aging, genetics, and environmental factors. As a result, some people may feel dissatisfied with their appearance. If you’re searching for a non-surgical solution to rejuvenate your eyes, tear trough fillers might be the perfect answer.

What is a Tear Trough Filler?

A tear trough filler is a non-surgical, injectable treatment designed to add volume beneath the eyes. Utilizing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, this filler aims to reduce the depth of tear troughs, making the skin appear fuller and tighter with a more youthful appearance.

Understanding Tear Troughs

Tear troughs, also known as the nasojugal lines or grooves, reside in the inner portion of the lower eyelid. Normal aging leads to a natural decrease in fatty tissue under the lower eyelid and upper cheek area, causing the skin and muscles to lose elasticity and fullness. This results in tear trough depressions that can create a tired or aged appearance, often accompanied by “bags” under the eyes and dark circles.

Treatment Areas of Tear Trough Fillers

Tear trough fillers are used to address multiple concerns in the under-eye area. Tear trough fillers effectively:

  • Fill in volume loss under the eyes and treat hollows that contribute to the appearance of dark circles.
  • Soften eye bags by injecting them into specific points to lift and smooth the transition between the lower eyelid and cheek.
  • Remove fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes by restoring lost volume, boosting collagen production, and hydrating from the inside.

It’s important to note that this treatment may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with allergies or infections in the injection area. Only an experienced practitioner should handle tear trough treatments to avoid potential complications.

Benefits of Tear Trough Fillers

Natural-looking Results

One of the primary benefits of tear trough fillers is the ability to achieve natural-looking results under the eye. This procedure targets under-eye hollows, diminishes dark circles, and reduces the appearance of eye bags, providing an overall more awake, refreshed, and rested appearance without looking overdone or appearing “plastic”.

Safe and Non-Invasive

Tear trough fillers are considered a safe treatment option, especially when compared to surgical alternatives. While the FDA has approved specific under-eye fillers, it’s crucial to choose a qualified professional for the procedure like our providers at Pommier Med Spa.

The effects of tear trough fillers are longer lasting than other fillers on the market today, with most patients reporting effects lasting up to a year. For long-term results, maintenance treatments will be needed. Please consult with our providers on a potential schedule to maintain your desired appearance.

Minimal Discomfort and Downtime

Unlike surgical treatment options, side effects associated with tear trough fillers are minimal and manageable. The tear trough filler procedure usually takes 15-20 minutes to complete, and any pain associated during the treatment will last only minutes.

Side effects of a tear trough procedure may include some swelling, bruising, and redness with improvement typically experienced within 48 to 72 hours.

Tear trough fillers offer a non-surgical solution to revitalize the under-eye area, providing natural-looking results with minimal discomfort and downtime. If you are considering this procedure, consult with our qualified professionals at Pommier Med Spa located in Riverview, Florida to discuss more about this treatment option.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Tear Troughs?

Tear troughs are hollows that run from the inner corner of the eyes diagonally down to the mid-cheek area. Tear troughs can become more prominent with age and contribute to the appearance of dark circles and under-eye bags.

What Causes Tear Troughs?

Tear troughs are often an inherited trait but can become more prominent with age as facial tissues lose volume and elasticity. Factors such as stress, genetics, and sun damage can also contribute to the appearance of tear troughs.

What are Nasojugal Grooves?

Nasojugal grooves, also known as nasojugal lines, are folds and wrinkles running down the cheek from the eye’s corner to the mid-cheek area, often referred to as tear troughs. These grooves can cause dark circles and undereye bags, which may become more pronounced with age and volume loss.

Are Dark Circles Permanent?

Dark circles can be temporary or permanent depending on various factors including genetics or lifestyle choices. Tear trough fillers can help address dark circles caused by the natural aging process, improving the eye’s overall appearance and youthfulness.

Is a Tear Trough Procedure Painful?

Your comfort is a top priority at Pommier Med Spa. To ensure a painless experience, our providers will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort during the injection.

What Are the Risks and Complications of Tear Trough Fillers?

While tear trough fillers are generally considered a safe treatment option, complications can include headache, skin discoloration, allergic reactions, persistent pain, and, in rare cases, blindness.

Given that the nasojugal groove overlaps with areas containing a nerve and large artery, there is a risk of injections compressing or obstructing arterial blood supply, which is why it is essential to work with qualified providers. Please consult with our providers about all the risks and complications before scheduling your procedure.

Who Is a Suitable Candidate for a Tear Trough Filler?

Ideal candidates for tear trough fillers have mild to moderate sagging under the eyes or are experiencing dark circles. Tear trough fillers are a temporary solution and will need future treatments in the future to maintain their desired appearance.

If you are experiencing thin skin, excess skin or fat under the eyes, very deep tear troughs, or certain medical conditions, this treatment option may not be right for you. Please consult with our providers for more information.
