Tear Trough Under Eye
Correction Treatment

Page Updated:

The delicate skin under the eyes is a common area of concern, and dark circles or deep hollows can contribute to a tired, prematurely aged look. Under eye circles can be temporary when caused by a lack of sleep, but persistent discoloration may actually be the result of a tear trough malformation. Tear trough treatment can rejuvenate the under eye area for a refreshed and youthful appearance.

What Is A Tear Trough?

The tear trough is a small groove that begins below the inner eye corner and extends toward the cheekbone, creating a separation between the eye and the cheek. Sometimes called a tear trough deformity or a nasojugal groove, this causes a hollow that can give the look of permanent under eye circles or bags. Skin loses elasticity and facial fat diminishes as we age, which can cause this depression underneath the eye. While aging may be a factor for some patients, tear troughs can also be caused by genetics and hormonal, lifestyle, or environmental changes. Tear troughs can occur as young as the early 20’s, although they develop more frequently in individuals in their late 30’s to 40’s.

How Does Filler Treatment for Tear Troughs Work?

Tear trough treatment is a quick non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure to soften and correct the appearance of tear troughs. Our injectable specialists utilize hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers to add just the right amount of volume to smooth away the tear trough. A topical anesthetic will be applied prior to the injections and your practitioner will make several small injections under the eye, customized for your desired results.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Injectables for Tear Trough Treatment

At Deep Blue Med Spa, we specialize in providing a wide range of minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments. Our medical aestheticians and physician assistants are experienced in a full spectrum of injectables and dermal fillers. We typically recommend hyaluronic acid fillers for tear trough treatment because HA has a smooth, gel-like consistency and is ideal for natural-looking contouring. HA fillers that may be used for tear troughs include Restylane® and JUVÉDERM®.
