Tear Trough Boston

For many people, the earliest signs of aging appear directly below the eyes. Dark circles, sagging skin, and hollowing occur as the skin loses elasticity and volume loss progresses with aging. The unfortunate result is a more aged and tired appearance. Facial experts refer to this region as the “tear trough”, and it is one of the most challenging areas to rejuvenate.
Eyelid lift surgery is one option to combat the effects of aging in the tear trough, and sometimes Dr. Spiegel will reposition fat to fill in the area. However, there are other great options which do not require surgery or a week of recovery, while still providing the youthful and rested look that you desire.

What do I do about my saggy eyes?

Also called, Dermal Fillers, these products “fill in” the lost fat, tissue, and even bone that you lose during the aging process. Fillers usually last between 6-12 months (without touch up treatments) depending upon where they are put, but while we can’t promise this, in many patients we’ve seen tear trough fillers last several years with just one or two treatments. Restylane®, Versa®, and Juvederm ™ are just some of the many options that are available to you. These products are a form of hyaluronic acid, a material found naturally in your body. Hyaluronic acid gels bind to water molecules, helping your skin retain moisture and giving your skin a more supple, youthful, and beautiful look and feel.

Tear Trough Before & After

Tear trough hollowing can be treated by injections of hyaluronic acid fillers to restore lost volume and improve darkness and shadowing around the lower eyelids. This is an area where you really need to see an expert facial doctor because while the results are natural and beautiful in skilled hands, if done incorrectly or by a less experienced practitioner, an unnatural bulge or bluish skin color can result. Dr. Onir and Dr. Spiegel are recognized experts at facial injections including for complex regions such as the tear troughs.
