Tear trough hollowing or sunken under-eyes is a common concern that becomes more noticeable as we age. This occurs at the junction where two facial muscles meet, and it is often accentuated by the protrusion of the fat pad beneath the eye. As a result, a shadow forms under the eye, creating the appearance of hollowing.
Strategically using dermal fillers is an effective way to address tear trough hollowing and reduce the appearance of sunken under-eyes. By injecting filler into the area, volume can be restored, smoothing out the transition between the lower eyelid and the cheek and diminishing the appearance of the hollowing.
Tear trough hollowing can be influenced by multiple factors, including age-related volume loss, genetics, and even lifestyle factors like sleep habits and hydration levels. A thorough consultation and treatment plan is paramount with this type of procedure.
