    Using Fillers For Tear Troughs

    Using Fillers For Tear TroughsThe tear trough is an area between the lower eyelid and the cheek. Volume loss occurs in the area with age, which causes under-eye hollows, dark circles, and eye bags. Effective tear trough treatment involves injecting dermal filler into the area to restore lost volume and reduce the appearance of hollows and dark circles. 

    Khan Eyelid and Facial Aesthetics, led by oculoplastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Tanya Khan, provides dermal fillers for tear troughs to patients in Plano, Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities. 

    Choosing Tear Trough Fillers

    Volume occurs in the under-eye region with age. This results in thinning skin, wrinkles, dark circles, and under-eye hollows, which can make you look tired. Many patients experience this as early as in their late twenties. Tear trough concerns can result in a lot of distress while looking in the mirror. 

    Tear trough fillers are effective in treating dark circles and under-eye hollows. You can regain volume loss by injecting the dermal filler under the eyes. It can also lighten dark circles and fill wrinkles. Dermal fillers can improve skin quality by hydrating the skin from within and boosting collagen production.

    Best Dermal Filler Options for Tear Trough Correction

    Choosing the right type of dermal filler consisting of hyaluronic acid depends on a wide array of factors, such as anatomical concerns, skin type, thickness, and skin texture. Restylane and Juvederm Volbella are the commonly preferred dermal injectables. 


    Restylane dermal filler is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler that makes use of the patented NASH technology for producing a smooth gel by cross-linking the hyaluronic acid molecules. The dermal injectable has a spreadable and fluid consistency making it ideal for the tear trough region.

    Juvederm Volbella

    The dermal filler is made using proprietary Vycross technology that lends it the ultra-creamy texture. It can be injected smoothly to deliver natural results. Volbella absorbs less tissue volume as compared to other fillers. This provides better tear trough results. The risk of under eye swelling is reduced as well with Juvederm Volbella. 

    Cannula vs. Sharp Needle Technique

    Cannulas contain a hollow bore needle with a more rounded blunt end. This can penetrate deep into the skin. Many medical spa providers prefer using cannulas for because of the reduced risk. Blunt needles are not as dangerous as sharp needles when injecting a tiny blood vessel. Cannulas can deposit the dermal filler without making many needle ‘pokes’ within the skin.
