Tear trough, how to treat them correctly ?
When patients come to my practice wanting a solution regarding their tear trough, they usually expect to be injected fillers straight in that area.
However, it is often the case that you can fix the tear trough by focusing on other aspects of the face. This is why we need to understand why the tear trough develops in the first place!
Tear troughs usually develop with ageing. As we get older, we lose facial volume in the surrounding area, and dark circles under the eyes are deepened because of the skin laxity. It can also occur due to our lifestyle, where excessive exposure to the sun and smoking causes the skin to lax prematurely.
As a result, our cheeks drift downwards and this accentuates our naso-labial folds. By focusing on fixing these areas affected by the sagging tendency of our skin, the tear trough can be better addressed by treating these areas.
Further treatments to support the periorbital area, the crows feet area or the submalar area should be considered first to inject fillers, in order to ensure a more natural and sustained look!
Here at TheLondonFacialCare, I make sure that my patients undergo a full facial assessment with pictures before they decide to inject or opt for treatment. This way, they can fully understand how to achieve a beautiful and natural result.
By working on the foundations of the face first, we can then proceed by contouring the face and make it more refined. And this is why it is the best way to treat the tear trough!
