How to Get Rid of Your Tear Troughs

tear troughs

If you have bags, dark circles, or a loss of volume under your eyes, you have what we like to call “deep tear troughs”. This is a common occurrence in both males and females of all ages and it can be difficult to get rid of with simple over-the-counter products.

What Causes Deep Tear Troughs?

Tear troughs are depressions that can run from the nose all the way around the area below your eyes. Sometimes these depressions appear earlier in life and sometimes they appear later, but as we age, our skin and facial fat begins to sag and they often get worse. Many of our patients with deep tear troughs tend to think that they look older or more tired than they really are

While surgery used to be a popular solution for deep tear troughs, we at Medical Cosmetics offer a safer, non-invasive treatment – dermal fillers. Unlike surgery, dermal fillers offer instant results and little to no downtime, so you can enjoy younger-looking skin in no time!

Our Dermal Filler Treatment

Dermal fillers lift the skin up from underneath the surface in order to correct areas of depression and regions of volume loss. During our deep tear trough treatment, we choose to use hyaluronic acid fillers, which are the most popular type of fillers available today. These fillers are not only long-lasting, but they can be used in all areas of the face, making them perfect for under-eye treatments.

When you arrive for your deep tear trough procedure, we’ll thoroughly assess your eye area and determine the best places to use the fillers. Then, we’ll carefully and intricately inject the hyaluronic acid, which will instantly make your eyes look brighter and younger.

At Medical Cosmetics, Dr. Carter performs our deep tear trough treatments and he is one of the best in the industry. He’s performed thousands of procedures with wonderful results, so we can assure you you’ll be in good hands!
