Tear trough fillers offer a quick and effective way to treat puffy eyes. By injecting filler under the eyes, we can restore lost volume, fill in hollows, smooth wrinkles, and lighten dark circles to refresh the eye area without surgery.
What is tear trough filler?
A tear trough filler is a gel-like injectable that adds volume beneath the eyes to restore their youthful appearance. Typically made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps the skin maintain moisture, tear trough fillers increase fullness and reduce indentations to rejuvenate the eye area.
How does tear trough filler help with puffy eyes?
When injected under the eyes, tear trough fillers plump up the skin, lifting it and reducing the depressions formed by puffy eyes. It smooths out the visible grooves in the eye bags and improves the overall appearance of the eye and midface area.
What other problems can tear trough filler help with?
In addition to puffy under eyes, tear trough fillers can treat:
- Dark under eyes
- Sunken, tired-looking eyes
- Lines and wrinkles
- Signs of aging around the eyes
Does tear trough filler hurt?
Dr. Brunner uses very fine needles for injectable treatments, resulting in less discomfort. HA fillers like Restylane® already contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic to ensure a more comfortable experience. We can also apply topical numbing cream before your treatment.
