Tear Troughs (Tired Eyes)

Prominent tear troughs often contribute to a tired or aged appearance.

What are Tear Troughs?

Not to be confused with dark circles or undereye bags, tear troughs are the hollows located under the eye, between the lower eyelid and the cheeks. These grooves are often the result of genetics and can be found in individuals of all ages, but they can deepen over time as a result of aging, volume loss, or stress.


Symptoms of Tear Troughs

As the collagen and elastin in our skin begins to break down, tear troughs often deepen, contributing to a tired, dull, and aged appearance. 

The concave nature of deep tear troughs can mean that shadows are naturally cast across the area, causing one to look permanently tired in a way that cosmetics cannot address. The best solution for the tired look that tear troughs often create is dermal filler injected below the eyes to smooth and fill in their hollow appearance. 

During your consultation, Dr. Geeta Yadav, a skilled Dermatologist, will determine the best type of dermal filler for you, depending on your needs and desired outcomes.
