What are Tear Troughs?

Your tear troughs arc from the corners of your eye, separating your lower eyelid and cheek. As we age, we lose volume in our cheeks, creating dark circles or hollows below our eyes. This can make us look tired.

Dermal Cosmetic Fillers

Dermal cosmetic fillers are a non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation. Fillers can soften lines and restore volume and fullness to the face. This technique is also known as soft-tissue augmentation. Soft-tissue augmentation can erase dark circles under your eyes, soften lines, plump lips, and enhance facial contours, helping you look as good as you feel.

In the hands of skilled cosmetic dermatologists, fillers can restore and enhance natural beauty with subtlety and immediate results. By deeply understanding facial anatomy and aging, we can address the underlying causes of facial aging and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Today’s fillers are safer, longer lasting, and provide more predictable results than older generations of fillers.

During your consultation, our board-certified cosmetic dermatologists will listen to you, perform a thorough evaluation, and provide you with an individualized treatment plan to address your needs and concerns.

What Types of Fillers Are Used for Tear Trough Rejuvenation?

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (Juvederm or Restylane products)

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are the most popular type of fillers used today. HA is a natural substance found in your skin. Common HA products include Juvederm® and Restylane®. HA fillers can provide a soft fill perfect for your tear troughs. These nonpermanent fillers typically last approximately twelve to eighteen months for tear-through enhancement, providing a refreshed and natural look.

Are Cosmetic Injectable Fillers Safe?

All procedures carry some risk. Complications from filler procedures are uncommon when performed by board-certified cosmetic dermatologists.

Possible risks when having injectable fillers include:

  • Mild bleeding, bruising, and swelling
    • Under or over-correction of wrinkles
    • Skin nodules
    • Infection
    • Skin necrosis (rare with proper technique and when performed by board-certified dermatologists)
