The tear trough is the crease between the lower eyelid and the cheek. When the crease is deeper, it can create a shadow resulting in unwanted darkness or the look of “bags” beneath the eyes. This shadow can also make you appear older or look tired, even when well-rested.
What Is Tear Trough Treatment?
Tear trough treatment, also known as under-eye filler, is an injectable treatment to add volume beneath the eyes. When your tear trough is deep, it can cast a shadow beneath the eyes, darkening the area and making you look tired.
Fillers used in this treatment contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the fluids of the eyes and joints. The gel-like filler adds volume to the area, reducing the depth of your tear trough.
