The eyes can play a big role in your overall appearance. For some, aging can lead to a tear trough deformity that causes volume loss under the eyes and above the cheek. This can result in an older, tired appearance. With tear trough injections, Adley DaSilva can restore this volume loss for a rejuvenated appearance.
What are Tear Trough Injections?
Tear trough injections involve the use of a filler like Restylane, containing hyaluronic acid to add moisture and volume to the skin. However, instead of using a rigid syringe, a flexible cannula is used to protect the sensitive skin and blood vessels in the tear trough area. The filler is added beneath the eyes, creating an instantly smooth appearance. Treatment with tear trough injections is temporary as the body naturally breaks down the formula.
Who is a Candidate for Tear Trough Injections?
Candidates for tear trough injections are those who experience volume loss around the eyes with age, specifically the area between the eyes and cheeks. This can result in a sunken or tired appearance. Both men and women can benefit from rejuvenating results of tear trough injections. For optimal eye rejuvenation, patients might also combine the treatment with an eyelid procedure.
The Treatment Process
Topical anesthesia can be used to numb the under eye area prior to treatment with tear trough injections. A small incision or two will then be made in the natural creases of the eyes. This opening is no larger than those used during Botox or traditional filler injections. A cannula can then be placed under the skin to inject the Restylane formula, adding instant volume. One syringe is typically enough to treat both eyes.
Recovery and Results
Patients can expect some mild redness, swelling, and bruising around the eyes after treatment, however, the use of a cannula instead of a syringe typically results in less trauma to the area. Patients can enjoy added volume to the under-eyes that create a more awake and youthful appearance that lasts for at least 9 months. Many patients report improvements that are still remaining after two years.
