Tear Trough Fillers for Lower Eyelid Bags
Many patients are concerned about their under eye area, even from a very early age, and this concern intensifies over time. The aesthetic lower eyelid should blend seamlessly with the cheek. Facial fillers are the primary treatment for the lower eyelid, helping improving the volume deficiency or deformity people get with aging; the fillers also reduce the amount of herniated fat visible to others. Fillers can also help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation that is often present in such cases.
What Causes Lower Eyelid Bags
There are various causes that result in changes to the lower lids with aging. Some people end up having dark circles and others end up having more prominent bags appear in their lower lids as they age. Under-eye bags occur with age as the naturally occurring fat pockets around the eyeball grow. With time, the fat under the eyeball tends to protrude or herniate through the thin eyelid skin.
About the Procedure
The procedure is performed in the office with the assistance of a topical anesthetic. It can take as little as 30 minutes if using hyaluronic acids (i.e., Restylane) and patients usually go home afterward without any problems.
