Tear Trough Treatment With Under Eye Filler

Page Updated:

Are you frustrated with dark circles under your eyes that never seem to go away, no matter how much sleep you get? We have the inside scoop on how to get a bright eyed and refreshed look! The truth is that all the sleep and under eye cream in the world won’t eliminate dark circles or undereye bags if the problem is deep tear troughs. Tear trough treatment with injectable under eye filler can diminish the look of dark circles with long lasting results. 

What is a Tear Trough?

Your tear trough, also called the nasojugal groove, is the anatomical area under your eye that extends from the inner corner of your lower eyelid toward your cheekbone. The skin under our eyes is very delicate and lack of sleep, stress, or allergies can all cause dark circles, but if you have shadows even when you feel great and well-rested, then deep tear troughs could be to blame. Tear troughs can deepen with age, causing a tear trough deformity which results in a visual separation between the eye and cheek and creates dark shadows that are difficult to conceal.

Non-surgical tear trough treatment can give you a bright eyed look without the expense or downtime of plastic surgery such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).

How Does Tear Trough Treatment Work?

Juvéderm is made with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occuring hydrating substance. These hyaluronic acid fillers have gel-like formulas that are FDA approved to restore lost volume.1 HA fillers gently plump and smooth the under eye area to fill in deep tear troughs and eliminate dark shadows.

Preparing For Injectables

Tear trough treatment usually takes less than 20 minutes and requires minimal prep. You may schedule a consultation appointment if you’d like to discuss your cosmetic concerns before your treatment. Avoiding alcohol and blood-thinning medications in the days before treatment can help minimize swelling or bruising.

Your Tear Trough Treatment

Your injector will cleanse under your eye and apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area. They will then carefully inject Juvéderm in your tear trough area using a very thin cannula.

What to Expect After Your Tear Trough Treatment

You can expect immediate results after your treatment. You may experience some swelling or redness at the injection site, but patients typically do not need any downtime and can resume most regular activities right away.
