The tear troughs and under eyes have a tendency to lose volume and get hollowed over time as the soft tissues change and the cheek slowly descends. The same descent of the cheek fat pads causes the shadow of the nasolabial fold to deepen. The under eyes can also look darker due to increased skin density (accordion effect), skin transparency, which would reveal the hue of the orbicularis muscle and vessels or hyperchromia (increased skin pigmentation).
Using fillers in this area is an effective and easy way to treat under eye hollows. The cannula technique allows more areas to be addressed without risk and without bruising.
We recommend that this treatment is used in conjunction with an associated treatment plan as advised by our practitioners.
