Aesthetic treatment of the tear trough

1 (1)

The tear troughis a hollow which sits between the cheekbone and the nose, under the eye circle. It can give the impression of fatigue and sadness which only disappears when you smile, because smiling increases the volume of the cheeks…

Changes to the bones, muscles and fat lie behind the appearance of the tear trough.
In particular, the fat in this zone sags or ‘melts’, creating a hollow which gives the appearance of sadness and fatigue.

POSSIBLE TREATMENTS

15

Hyaluronic Acid

The disappearance of this hollow gives an immediately rejuvenating effect accompanied by the appearance of a face ‘lift’.
It is treated according to the facial anatomy :

  • 1 – The face is thin and ‘skeletonised’: the triangle of the tear trough is filled with strongly reticulated hyaluronic acid such as Emervel Volume, Restylane or Restylane Perlane. Deep injection is by bolus needle or cannula.
    In order to keep a natural result, excessive filling must be avoided.
  • 2 – The face is heavier and drooping (shows ptosis): the solution depends more on creating traction by medical lifting using hyaluronic acid or by tensile threads in order to lift up the subsiding fat.
