Tear Trough

The tear trough is the groove or depression that runs between the lower eyelid and the upper cheeks.

Tear Trough

The tear trough is an important aesthetic area of the face, as changes in this area can contribute to the appearance of tiredness, or aging.


Some people may develop dark circles or shadows in the tear trough area, while others may experience a loss of volume or hollowness.


There are several treatments available to address the tear trough, including:


Dermal fillers


Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers can be injected into the tear trough to add volume and reduce the appearance of hollowness and dark circles. The filler is carefully placed to avoid any visible bumps or irregularities.


Skin Boosters


These are also made of hyaluronic acid and can be injected superficially in the skin under and around the eye.


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)


PRP therapy involves injecting your own blood plasma, which is rich in growth factors, into the tear trough area.


This can help to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and tone.


There are several cosmetic treatments available to address concerns with the tear trough, including dermal fillers, platelet-rich plasma therapy, fat transfer, and laser resurfacing.


Other treatments to consider include:


Fat transfer: Fat can be harvested from another area of the body and injected into the tear trough to add volume and improve the appearance of hollowing.


Laser resurfacing: Laser resurfacing can help to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin in the tear trough area.


Surgery: In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to address more severe tear trough concerns, such as excess skin or fat deposits.
