The tear trough follows on from the undereye circles, between the cheekbone and the nasolabial fold. This area tends to hollow out quickly in the event of weight loss but also with age.
This loss of volume makes the expression look tired, hollow, even downcast. It makes the middle third of the face catch less light because it breaks the roundness of the cheekbone and accentuates the nasolabial folds.
The suggested treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid – an almost painless procedure – generally using a microcannula to limit the risk of bruising.
Once the volumes have been restored in the tear trough, and any injections into the cheekbones have been carried out, the expression looks fuller, the face looks lifted, brighter and more alive.
This treatment allows us to limit the indications for undereye circles because it greatly reduces the appearance of fatigue that these cause in the eye area.
Just like the cheekbones, the tear trough is a bony support whose treatment “lifts” the lower third of the face, though we can only really assess what is left to do to the nasolabial folds and oval of the face once these two “high areas” have been injected.
The fee charged for this treatment varies greatly because it is part of the overall treatment of the face, and depends on the number of millilitres of filler product required, which is decided in advance when the patient’s quote is drawn up.
